A spinal cord injury lawyer is a person with specialized training and a license to advocate on behalf of people who are hurt in accidents. They are equipped to file a legal claim for the victim and represent them throughout the claims process. Along the way, the attorney offers informed guidance about different courses of action and possible paths for the claim. With their skills and experience, a spinal cord injury lawyer is equipped to work effectively to help their client receive a positive outcome in their unique case.
A spinal cord injury lawsuit is a civil, personal injury legal case. The case is brought by a victim. It demands monetary compensation from a person or entity based on their causing an accident.
The injury can be intentional, but accidents are the most common basis for a spinal cord injury lawsuit. To win the claim, the victim must show how the other party caused or contributed to the accident and their injuries through negligence. A successful spinal cord injury lawsuit results in a monetary judgment for the victim against those responsible for their damages.
There are several different types of spinal cord injuries:
Injuries may be complete or incomplete, causing full or partial paralysis. The victim may suffer from tetraplegia, quadriplegia, paraplegia, triplegia and a number of related conditions.
Some common symptoms of spinal cord injuries are:
- Loss of movement/Poor range of motion
- Pain, both dull and shooting
Spinal cord injuries often occur along with other injuries. The victim may have fractures, bruising and internal injuries. Part of being an effective lawyer for a client is to acknowledge the symptoms and ensure that the client has a correct and complete diagnosis that they can base their legal claim on.
The average settlement for a spinal cord injury is quite high compared to other kinds of personal injury cases. That’s because spinal cord injuries often cause severe, lifelong damage. The party responsible for causing the accident is legally liable for short-term and long-term damages. When a victim sustains injuries that require long-term medical care, or that change their lifestyle forever, that can be taken into account in the settlement.
To determine the exact settlement for a spinal cord injury, it’s important to identify and value the exact damages of the victim. It’s the unique damages that a victim sustains that determines what they ultimately receive in compensation. There are a few other factors that may make a difference – comparative negligence, factual questions, the ability of the defendant to pay a judgment and other things may adjust a victim’s settlement.
Types of compensation available in a spinal cord injury lawsuit include:
- Emergency room bills including emergency surgery
- Scans/imaging to determine the diagnosis
- Wheelchairs, other mobility devices and equipment – Replacements and adjustments for as long as the injuries are projected to last
- Treatment including therapies and rehabilitation
- Physical/occupational therapy
- Damages for mental injuries and treatment including anxiety, PTSD and depression
- Long-term medical care needs; hospitalization, nursing, home care and the like
- Travel expenses for medical appointments (if treatment is needed in other cities or states, this amount may be substantial)
- Property damage
- Emotional anguish, pain and suffering, changes in lifestyle
- Punitive damages (special conditions apply)
Spinal cord injuries typically last far beyond the months needed to settle a lawsuit. However, you have the right to claim damages for the full extent of your injuries even if they are lifelong. One of the ways that our Englewood spinal cord injury attorneys serve our clients is by working diligently to determine their prognosis and needs in the future. Then, we work with expert witnesses to prove and value these damages as part of a claim.
