Ways a Jonesboro Paralysis Attorney Can Help You
A diagnosis of a complete spinal cord injury is life-altering and devastating. This means that you will lose movement and sensory functioning below the point of injury to your spine, and permanent paralysis can cost millions of dollars over the course of your life, not to mention the overwhelming intangible losses.
If someone else caused your spinal injury, you can file a claim against that party to seek compensation for your extensive losses. It is common to question whether you should hire legal counsel for this process and wonder what exactly a Jonesboro paralysis lawyer can do to help you.
You cannot file an injury claim if you don’t know which parties should be held liable. Determining liability is the first step in any type of injury case, and it is especially important to identify all possible liable parties when your injuries are permanent. Your lawyer can review what happened and discover all sources of liability, which might include one or more of the following:
- Government agencies
Calculating Your Damages
In order to recover full damages in your claim, you must be able to prove the losses you incurred and estimated future losses. These include:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Past and future lost income
- Pain and suffering
- Mental trauma
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of consortium
Handling the Claim Process
Filing and negotiating paralysis claims can be a challenging and lengthy process because there is so much at stake. You are dealing with your recovery and adjusting to life with paralysis, so the last thing you need is to worry about your claim. Leave that to an experienced attorney.
