Suffering From A Spinal Cord Injury?
If you have been involved in a serious car, truck or on-the-job accident where you received serious trauma to your head or neck, you should seek immediate medical attention. Determining if there is an injury and putting together a medical treatment plan quickly could make a big impact on your recovery. Even if there are no immediate signs of injury, it is important to be evaluated for a spinal cord injury as some signs of severe injury may not be initially obvious.
A spinal cord injury is when there is damage due to trauma to the spinal cord or the spinal cord nerves. The trauma could be from a car, slip-and-fall or even possibly a medical malpractice accident. Spinal cord injuries affect many aspects of you and your family’s life. If the sustained injuries are permanent, such as paralysis, there will be lasting effects on the financial, emotional and mental well-being of you and your family.
Injured In A Car Accident?
Car accidents are often the most common causes of spinal injuries. Our attorneys have access to experts who can assist with the collection of evidence in the fact-finding stages of your claim and which may involve:
- Crime scene evaluation
- Interview of witnesses
- Review traffic footage
- Review any information from the insurance company
- Consulting experts in the car accident field
If you or a loved one was injured by a medical professional, and believe they directly caused your injury, you may be able to file a claim. The most difficult factor to prove in a spinal cord injury case is causation, meaning the negligent party’s action directly caused the injury. When proceeding with a spinal cord injury lawsuit, our attorneys can gather the evidence you need to prove causation.
Injured On The Job?
Workers’ compensation laws provide damages that come as a result of a spinal injury, which can be common in physical jobs such as construction work or truck driving. If your work is denying you the compensation you deserve, you should contact the attorneys at Hardee, Massey & Blodgett immediately.
