Aggressively Representing Victims of Spinal Cord Injuries in Austin
Injuries to the spine can occur due to a variety of causes. These may include car accidents, motorcycle accidents, trucking accidents, injuries which occur on a bicycle, or as the result of a slip and fall. Such incidents lead to herniated discs, damaged vertebrae, paralysis, and more. It is important to hold the defendant accountable if your injury was the result of their negligence.
The first step in any spinal injury case is for the victim to receive the care they need. Part of this care will include determining the extent of the injury, developing a treatment plan, and forecasting the extent of future harm. In addition to the treating physicians, it may be necessary to employ medical experts to present a victim’s legal case in court. It will also be necessary to determine the amount of financial damage done by the accident. This will include lost wages, future lost earnings, and other expenses incurred. Vocational rehabilitation and economic experts will likely be necessary in this area. Once one’s damages can be reasonably calculated, then a demand for payment will be sent to the negligent party’s insurance company. Should the matter not settle, then it will be necessary to initiate a lawsuit.
