Were You Hurt Because of Another Person’s Negligence?
If you were involved in an accident and suffered a spinal cord injury, you could be eligible for compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, future medical expenses, disability, physical therapy, loss of consortium, and pain and suffering. Accidents fall under an area of civil law known as personal injury. Personal injury involves a legal concept referred to as negligence. When someone is negligent it means that they had a legal duty that they did not fulfill and this caused someone to get hurt.
When people are hurt because of another person’s negligence, they may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit. For victims of a spinal cord injury, this is important because you may need ongoing medical care, physical therapy, medications, and you may not be able to work. We represent spinal cord injury victims to help them get the financial compensation that they deserve.
