Almost anyone suffering a catastrophic paralysis injury will require legal counsel to help manage his or her medical and financial situation.
Why? When the injury is human-caused – traffic accidents, employer negligence, medical malpractice or product negligence – the offending party is responsible. But insurance companies typically want to cover only the immediate medical costs associated with the accident that led to the injury. Paralysis is almost always irreversible, creating limitations to a person’s mobility that restricts their ability to work, and may make them dependent on caretakers and extended therapy for the rest of their lives. The financial settlement needs to consider and cover these long-term financial burdens.
If someone in your family is paralyzed as a result of an accident, medical mistake or product failure, they may be entitled to a settlement or monetary award as fair compensation that includes much more than medical costs. If you have been paralyzed, you are advised to contact us to discuss your condition to determine if a personal injury lawsuit can help you find financial security.
