Benefits of Hiring a Galveston Spinal Cord Injury Attorney

Spinal cord injury claims are typically incredibly complex, particularly when analyzing the likely actions of the defendant(s). It is very likely the alleged negligent party will have insurance carriers and legal teams ready to defend their side of the case, which is why spinal cord injury victims need an attorney of their own to handle every aspect of the claim.

Because of the likely severe nature of the overall claim, spinal cord injury attorneys will need to conduct an extensive investigation into the incident and speak with trusted medical and financial experts. When you have this type of injury, the planning must be long-term. We want to think about your long-term quality of life, which involves recovering full compensation.

The role of a spinal cord injury attorney is multifaceted but includes the initial investigation into the claim and any ongoing investigation to uncover additional evidence. An attorney will handle all communication with the other parties involved, including any negotiations for a fair settlement. If necessary, an attorney will completely prepare your spinal cord injury claim in Galveston for trial.

Why Do Spinal Cord Injuries Occur?

Information presented by the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center (NSCISC) shows that the leading causes of spinal cord trauma since 2015 include the following:

  • Vehicle accidents (including traditional vehicle accidents, commercial vehicle accidents, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian and bicycle accidents, etc.)
  • Falls (including falls from one level to another or falls from the same level)
  • Acts of violence (most commonly gunshot wounds or severe assaults)
  • Sports incidents (more common with contact sports)
  • Medical or surgical mistakes

This is certainly not a complete list of the ways spinal cord injuries occur, and we encourage you to reach out to an attorney if you have any specific questions about your case. The NSCISC states that there are approximately 294,000 individuals living with spinal cord injuries in the United States right now and that there are around 18,000 new spinal cord injury cases each year.

Determining Liability After a Spinal Cord Injury

Determining liability after a spinal cord injury is challenging. Your Galveston spinal cord injury attorney will conduct a complete investigation into the incident and uncover as much evidence as possible. Some of the evidence that can help determine liability in these cases includes the following:

  • Photograph taken at the scene of the incident
  • Statements from any eyewitnesses
  • Video surveillance footage of the incident
  • Records related to various parties involved (employment records, safety and maintenance records, training procedures, etc.)
  • Input from accident reconstruction experts
  • Information from expert witnesses

The goal of a spinal cord injury case and any personal injury claim against another party is to show that the other party’s negligent actions led to the injury occurring. An attorney will not only gather the evidence needed to show liability, but they will also work to explain to a personal injury jury exactly how the actions of the defendant led to the injury and that the injury led to specific monetary losses for the victim.

What Compensation May Be Available in Your Case?

At The Doan Law Firm, our team works diligently to help clients recover both “special” and “general” damages, which include the following:

  • Special damages. These damages are also referred to as economic damages, and they revolve around the calculable expenses a Galveston spinal cord injury victim would likely incur. By analyzing receipts or bills, we can help a spinal cord injury victim calculate the following:
    • Emergency and ongoing hospital costs
    • All follow-up visits to doctor’s offices
    • The cost of modifying homes or vehicles to help with mobility
    • Lost wage replacement if a victim is unable to work
    • Property damage expenses
    • Medical devices and prescription medications
    • Physical therapy and rehabilitation costs
  • General damages. These damages are sometimes referred to as non-economic damages, but they revolve around less calculable damages a spinal cord injury victim will likely incur. This includes:
    • Physical pain and suffering damages
    • Emotional and psychological pain and suffering damages
    • Loss of enjoyment of life damages
    • Loss of consortium damages for a spouse

There is no set amount of compensation paid to Galveston spinal cord injury victims if their claim is successful. We encourage you to speak to your attorney about the various factors that can influence settlement or jury verdict amounts.
