Establishing Liability for Your Brain or Spinal Cord Injuries
Proving that someone else is responsible for your injuries depends upon both the circumstances of the accident as well as the quality of the investigation that is undertaken. Many different accidents can cause a brain or spinal cord injury:
A Reckless Driver
If a vehicle operator was drinking, driving while distracted, or engaging in reckless behavior, they may bear liability for your injuries. If a commercial driver, such as a truck driver or bus driver, caused your injury, you may have the option to sue the company they work for.
A Negligent Physician
A doctor may have performed a medical procedure or surgery that caused damage to your brain. A physician may have prescribed the wrong medication or misdiagnosed your physical condition.
A Defective Product
Were you wearing a football helmet that was defective? You may have also used another product that led to a concussion or other head injury. If so, your injury may have been caused by a manufacturer defect.
A Negligent Property Owner
In a premises liability case, we may help you file a claim against the property owner if we can establish that your injuries were brought about as a result of hazardous conditions on the property. The property owner may have injury violated building safety codes, for example. If the property owner was negligent, you may be eligible to recover compensation from the property owner’s insurance policy.
A Dangerous Work Site
If you were a construction worker who fell or was injured on the job, we can help you bring a construction negligence case against the property owner, general contractor or other subcontractor who was responsible for the accident.
What You Can Claim in a Personal Injury Case
The value of your case depends on the nature of the accident, who is at fault, and the full extent of your physical pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of enjoyment of life, as well as financial losses resulting from your injuries. We can help you determine your case value based on the unique circumstances of your case. Generally, the following damages are recoverable in a brain or spinal injury case:
Spinal injury accidents may cost you thousands of dollars in medical procedures and treatment. You may have to pay out of pocket for emergency care, surgical procedures, recovery room stay, physical therapy, pain medication, or routine doctor visits. As such, you may claim these losses, as well as any projected future expenses related to your injuries.
Lost Wages During Recovery
A traumatic brain injury or spinal cord injury can take months or years to recover from. As a result, you may have lost thousands of dollars in lost wages and benefits. If you are disabled, then you may be able to claim disability pay or lost retirement benefits.
Pain and Suffering Damages
If you are suffering from an injury to your brain or spinal cord, you will likely be suffering both physically and mentally. You may be entitled to substantial money damages for pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of companionship, or overall decline in the quality of your life.
