Our experts will guide you through the case and gather all of the information necessary to win it.
From the beginning to the end, our attorney will handle every aspect of your case. You do not pay until you win.
You may be eligible to sue for negligence if you believe that a medical professional caused your injury. To win a negligence claim, your lawyer must prove three key elements: the doctor owed you a duty of care, the duty was breached in some way, and you sustained a spinal injury.
For instance, let’s consider a scenario where a patient undergoes surgery to repair dislocated discs in their spine. Like any other surgeon, the patient’s surgeon has the responsibility to perform the procedure with utmost safety. However, during the operation, the surgeon becomes distracted and inadvertently cuts a different area of the spinal cord. The surgeon may be unaware of the mistake or may consider it insignificant.
Unfortunately, if left untreated, this spinal cord injury can worsen and result in partial paralysis. In such a case, the patient may be entitled to damages if they can prove that the surgeon’s negligence directly caused the paralysis.
Proving causation is often the most challenging aspect of a spinal cord injury case. It requires demonstrating that the negligent party directly caused the injury. An attorney can assist you in establishing causation if you decide to file a lawsuit for spinal cord injuries. They will carefully review medical records and procedure notes, conduct interviews with witnesses, investigate the surgeon’s history, and consult with medical malpractice experts to build a strong case on your behalf.
Negligence: If you have sustained a spinal injury due to a car crash and believe that another person’s actions or inaction caused your injury, you may be eligible for compensation. While product liability suits are an alternative, most cases in these situations are pursued under the negligence theory. To establish a successful negligence case, your attorney must prove four essential elements: that the defendant owed you a duty of reasonable care, that this duty was somehow breached, that you suffered an injury, and that the breach directly caused your injury.
For instance, let’s consider a scenario where a black car speeds through a red traffic light and collides with a blue car at an intersection. Drivers have a duty of care to be cautious and aware of their surroundings to prevent harm to others. In this case, the driver of the black car violated this duty by disregarding the red light. As a result, the driver of the blue car sustains injuries to their left leg and hand upon impact. The injured driver of the blue car requires costly surgery and rehabilitation for their injuries. If the driver of the blue car can prove that the black car breached its duty of care and directly caused their injuries, they may be entitled to compensation.
Collecting Evidence: A car accident lawyer can assist you in gathering crucial information and evidence that can significantly impact the success of your claim. Our attorney have access to experts who can aid in the fact-finding stage of your case. This may involve:
Strict Liability: If you believe that a defective product in one of the cars contributed to or caused your accident, you may have grounds to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer. In a product liability case, a manufacturer can be held strictly responsible for defective products, without the need to prove negligence. However, it’s important to note that strict liability may not be an option if the vehicle was purchased second-hand.
Negligence: If you believe that the vehicle or a specific part of it was responsible for the accident, you may be eligible for compensation. To succeed in a negligence claim, your attorney must establish the following:
Your attorney will review the manufacturing process of the product manufacturer to determine if other parts manufactured by the company were defective and how that defect may have caused your injuries.
Workers who sustain a spinal injury while on the job may face concerns about job security and providing for their families. Fortunately, Workers’ Compensation provides benefits to cover medical expenses and lost wages. It’s important to note that workers who receive Workers’ Compensation are generally barred from suing their employers.
However, if a third party’s negligence contributed to the injury, workers may be able to file a lawsuit against that party. In cases where workers’ compensation claims are denied, it is crucial to promptly seek legal counsel from an attorney to discuss the details of their case.
