Was Your Injury Preventable?

Breach of Duty

In order to prove a personal injury lawsuit, you will need to demonstrate that the defendant acted with negligence. In other words, they failed to act with a reasonable amount of care.

Direct Cause

Once you have proven that the defendant did not act with reasonable care, you will need to show that this failure directly led to your spinal cord being injured. 

Measurable Damage

Finally, you will need to provide evidence that these injuries to your spine have directly affected your life. Examples include lost wages, documented medical expenses, and a decreased ability to work.

Are There Different Kinds  of Spinal Cord Injuries?

Spinal cord injuries (SCIs) are usually categorized based on what part of the body they affect and how severe the damage is. The higher on the spinal cord the injury occurs, the more severe the effects. For example, injury near the bottom of the spinal cord can result in paralysis of the legs, while damage higher up can lead to paralysis in all four extremities. 

A lawsuit will also take into consideration whether the injury is complete or incomplete – in other words, whether you have lost all feeling and ability to move or if the loss is partial

How the Cause Affects Your Lawsuit

While the specific cause of your injury will not affect the basic proceedings of the case, it does play an important role. For a successful verdict, your lawyer must prove that the defending party owed you a duty of care and failed to provide it. Whether that duty was as a doctor who failed to ensure adequate care or as a fellow driver who failed to behave in a safe way, their negligence must have directly caused your injury.
