Helping Spinal Cord Injury Victims in South Florida
Injury to the spinal cord is one of the most permanent and devastating injuries. There is a very high financial, physical, and emotional cost of a spinal cord injury and it’s crucial for victims to understand their options after their spine is damaged. Most spinal cord injuries occur because of motor vehicle accidents or slip-and-falls, both of which are often preventable. A person, company, or government agency that failed to fulfill its safety obligations can be held legally liable if their actions caused your spinal cord injury. Steinger, Greene & Feiner can help you take legal action and pursue a damage claim so you will have the money you need to get the best possible treatment and move on with your life. Our experienced Florida spinal cord injury attorneys have represented more than 32,000 injured clients since 1997 and we are not afraid to take on tough cases involving catastrophic injuries. Let us help you protect your right to full and fair compensation if someone caused injury to your spine. View our spinal cord injury FAQ to help answer your questions.
Your Legal Rights After a Spinal Injury
If you can prove someone injured your spinal cord because of negligence or a failure to live up to a legal duty, then you have the right to make a personal injury claim. Family members may also make a claim on behalf of a loved one, such as a child or severely disabled relative who has experienced damage to the spine. It is up to you to prove:
- The other party did not fulfill a legal obligation to keep you safe
- You suffered injury to the spine as a result of the failure
- The extent of the spinal cord injury so you can be fully compensated
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that the average cost of treatment for a spinal cord injury can total between $15,000 and $30,000 per year and that lifetime costs can exceed $3 million. Victims of spinal cord damage usually don’t have this much money. Most victims also don’t have insurance that covers every expense and may be left unable to work or with reduced earning potential due to the spinal cord damage.
You should not be left with financial worries or stress about how your medical costs will be paid. You need to know the value of your spinal cord injury claim and put together a strong case to prove how badly you were damaged so you can get the money you need.
