No matter how your injuries occurred, our team is here to work with you through the personal injury legal process. We can help in the following ways.
In many cases, spinal cord injuries are preventable. If your injury was the result of another party’s negligence or recklessness, we can determine who should be held legally liable.
Determining liability includes researching all aspects of your accident and gathering evidence to determine who caused it and who is liable.
Build a Case
After we determine liability and gather evidence to support your case, we will begin to build your case. This step includes proving the liable party is responsible and calculating your full damages.
Spinal cord injuries can be life-long, so we will consider the long-term impact on your life, not just the medical bills and lost wages you have experienced so far.
Fight for Your Rights
Once an Orlando spinal cord injury lawyer builds a strong case, we will pursue compensation, often by pursuing insurance claims or a lawsuit. Contact us today at 1-800-747-3733 to discuss your case.
Recoverable Damages Following Your Spinal Cord Injury
Spinal cord injuries can impact your financial future for decades. When pursuing damages, we consider all the ways your life has been changed, including whether you can work, if you are in daily pain, and how much medical care you will require over the course of your life.
Common types of damages we often see in spinal cord injury cases include the following.
You may be able to recover the cost of medical care related to your injuries such as emergency care, surgery, ongoing care, and medication. You may also recover physical therapy, nursing care, and other related medical costs.
Lost Current Wages
If you are unable to return to work for a period of time, you may be able to recover the loss of income, including pay and benefits.
Loss of Future Wages
Recovery from a spinal cord injury can take months or even years. In some cases, damage may be permeant. In these cases, we can pursue the loss of earning capacity and employment benefits, such as health insurance and retirement benefits.
Personal Property Damage
If your personal property was damaged or destroyed at the time of your injury, we will pursue compensation for your losses. Personal property may include a vehicle, electronic devices, or medical devices.
When it comes to spinal cord injuries, not all damages are financial in nature. The mental trauma, pain and suffering, and loss of quality of life you experience are recoverable as damages. Our team will pursue compensation for these and other non-economic damages.
Statute of Limitations on Spinal Cord Injury Lawsuits in Florida
The state of Florida places a limit on the amount of time you have to pursue a personal injury lawsuit. In most cases, spinal cord injury victims have four years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit.
