    Many victims of spinal injuries never make a full recovery. Instead, they must endure extensive treatment and receive care for a number of years, if not permanently. New technological advances are indeed helping, but they are typically overwhelmingly expensive and out of reach for many. Fortunately, a Topeka spinal cord injury can help injury victims recover valuable funds to help offset the incredible financial devastation that often accompanies these serious injuries.

    Who Is Responsible?

    Holding Wrongdoers Accountable

    Although there is no one to blame in some spinal injury cases, often, these injuries happen due to someone else’s negligence or even an intentional act. Additionally, they can occur in all manner of contexts, including:

    In each of these contexts, your Topeka spinal injury lawyer will work to identify precisely who the liable parties are and pursue appropriate damages.

    These damages may include coverage for losses such as:

    • Medical bills
    • Lost income
    • Lost earning capacity
    • Pain and suffering
    • Loss of consortium
    • Mental anguish.

    In cases of particularly bad behavior, attorneys may also seek punitive damages. Instead of compensating spinal injury victims, punitive damages punish the injuring party in the hopes that the penalty will deter future similar behavior.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Common Questions From Injury Clients

    You likely have many questions about your injury and pursuing potential compensation for it. Consider these common questions our injury clients ask:

    Do I need a Topeka spinal injury lawyer to handle my case?

    To give yourself the best chance of receiving the compensation you are entitled to for your spinal injury case, it is strongly recommended that you hire an experienced Topeka spinal injury lawyer as soon as possible. The financial burden caused by a spinal injury can easily bankrupt and ruin a person financially. You need compensation to cover the many outlays, losses, and costs associated with spinal cord injuries.

    Without a lawyer, you will likely get far less money than you deserve and need because insurance companies fight to pay less in order to preserve their profits.

    How long do I have to file a spinal injury lawsuit?

    In Kansas, you must seek compensation for a spinal injury within a two-year period of the event that caused your injury. In some cases, this time window can be extended if the injury is not reasonably apparent initially. The time limit may also be extended in cases involving minors.

    How much is my spinal injury claim worth?

    Your spinal cord injury is worth the sum total of your economic damages and non-economic damages. During the calculation of your compensable losses, your Topeka spinal injury lawyer will be fighting hard to ensure that the insurance company adjuster handling your case properly pays for each compensable loss. Without an attorney, you will likely get much less than you deserve.

    Is a spinal cord injury a serious injury for PIP purposes?

    A spinal cord injury may qualify as a serious injury for personal injury protection (PIP) purposes. With a serious injury, traffic accident victims are entitled to seek damages outside of their PIP auto insurance policies.

    How common is spinal injury as a result of medical malpractice?

    Spinal injury due to medical malpractice is relatively rare but can happen in certain situations. Medical malpractice occurs if a health care provider fails to offer the standard of care expected of a reasonably competent provider, which leads to harm or injury to the patient.

    Spinal injuries can occur because of medical malpractice in various situations, such as:

    • Surgical errors
    • Anesthesia errors
    • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis
    • Improper treatment
    • Medication errors.

    While spinal injury due to medical malpractice is relatively rare, it can be a devastating and life-altering experience for the patient.

    If you have more questions and concerns about spinal injuries, don’t hesitate to contact the Palmer Law Group for more information.
