    Spinal Cord Injuries in Lawrence: Who’s to Blame?

    Identifying Accountable Parties

    Not all spinal cord injury victims are eligible for compensation. Only injured parties who can demonstrate that someone else was liable will receive compensation. But when does liability attach? The answer is that it depends on the circumstances. However, in most spinal cord injury cases, liability attaches when negligence is the cause of the injury. A party can also be held liable for intentionally causing a spinal cord injury.

    Common instances of negligence that lead to spinal cord injuries include:

    • Traffic Negligence: All types of negligence can cause traffic accidents that produce spinal cord injuries, such as distracted driving and DUI.
    • Medical Malpractice: Negligent surgeons, chiropractors, and other medical professionals can easily damage the spinal cord.
    • Sporting Negligence: Negligence in organized sports is common and can cause serious spinal cord injuries.
    • Intentional Violence: Various forms of intentional violence, such as domestic violence and handgun violence, cause spinal cord injuries.
    • Defective Products: A defective product purchased in the marketplace, such as defective power tools and equipment, can easily cause a spinal cord injury.

    However your injury occurred, it will be up to your Lawrence spinal cord injury lawyer to gather proof and build a case. The sooner they are able to start collecting evidence, the better for your case.

    Determining Damages

    Once your Lawrence spinal cord injury lawyer identifies the responsible party or parties, they can set out to list and calculate your compensation. Spinal cord injury compensation can include damages for economic and non-economic harms, such as:

    • Lost wages
    • Medical expenses
    • Pain and suffering
    • Loss of enjoyment of life
    • Mental anguish

    When intentional or malicious actions are involved, punitive damages may also be available as punishment.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Spinal Cord Injury Cases

    If you have questions related to a spinal cord injury and compensation, you are not alone. We receive many questions regarding these issues and are always happy to answer them.

    How much time do I have to file a spinal cord injury claim?

    You have a two-year time limit to file a lawsuit for damages stemming from a spinal cord injury claim. If your injury occurred more than two years ago, your case may still be valid if it qualifies for one of the few exceptions to the two-year statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Kansas. Reach out to a Lawrence spinal cord injury lawyer from our team to learn more.

    Do I really need to hire a Lawrence spinal cord injury lawyer?

    To get the resources you need to truly address your spinal cord injuries, you should seriously consider hiring a spinal cord injury lawyer. Insurance companies don’t like paying out extensive compensation and fight tooth and nail to pay less. An experienced Lawrence spinal cord injury lawyer fights to hold insurance companies accountable for the payouts they owe.

    I have received an insurance offer. Should I accept it?

    If an insurance company has sent you an offer of compensation for your spinal cord injuries, you should not accept it unless an experienced Lawrence spinal cord injury lawyer has thoroughly reviewed it.

    Can spinal cord injuries heal?

    It depends. Once cell and/or nerve death occurs in the spinal cord, recovery becomes limited or nonexistent. This means that many victims of spinal cord injuries require medical treatment and care for the rest of their lives, which is expensive. They also need access to costly medical devices and equipment.

    How long will my spinal cord injury case take?

    It is impossible to give you an accurate time frame for your claim without first thoroughly reviewing your case. Circumstances often vary widely from case to case when it comes to spinal cord injuries. Generally, however, cases with simple, straightforward facts and clear evidence can be resolved in a matter of a few months, but complications or other issues can cause a case to drag on for many months or even years.

    At the Palmer Law Group, we work diligently to get results in a timely manner. We truly understand the desperation our clients feel after an injury, and we do everything in our power to access the funds they need.
