Spinal Injuries

Los Angeles Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer  

Skilled Representation for Spinal Cord Injury Cases in California 

Motor vehicle accidents are a leading cause of injuries to the back and spinal cord. Nevertheless, such injuries can occur in various situations, including slip-and-fall incidents, incidents involving firearms, and workplace accidents. Given the severity of these injuries, it is essential to not only seek medical assistance but also consult with a Los Angeles spinal injury attorney who can help you pursue compensation.

Impact of Spinal Cord Damage on Your Life

A spinal cord injury, which encompasses damage to the spinal cord and associated nerves, can result in lasting changes to strength, responsiveness, and other bodily functions below the injury site. These injuries can significantly disrupt and permanently alter your life. If you've sustained a back or spinal injury and suspect another party's fault, you may have a legitimate claim for compensation.

A spine injury encompasses any damage or trauma affecting the spinal cord or the surrounding structures of the vertebral column, commonly known as the spine. The spine consists of a series of vertebrae that offer support and protection to the spinal cord, a bundle of nerves facilitating communication between the brain and the rest of the body.

Why You Need a Spinal Cord Injury Attorney 

Spinal injuries can vary in seriousness and may stem from accidents, falls, sports-related incidents, or medical conditions. If you've experienced a spinal injury, it's advisable to contact a Los Angeles spine injury lawyer to address your legal concerns and explore avenues for compensation.

Any sudden, forceful impact that jolts or strikes the spine can result in a spinal cord injury. While the primary determinant for seeking compensation revolves around whether someone else is at fault for your injury, identifying the cause of your spinal injury is crucial for your Los Angeles spinal cord injury attorney to determine the appropriate parties to include in your claim.

What Are the Legal Foundations for a Spinal Cord Injury Case?  

The legal foundation for spinal cord injury lawsuits is rooted in personal injury law principles. When a spinal cord injury occurs due to the negligence or wrongful actions of another party, the injured individual may have grounds to seek compensation for their losses and damages. This compensation can cover medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other related damages.

Spinal cord injury lawsuits typically revolve around the following legal concepts:

  • Negligence: If it can be proven that another party failed to exercise reasonable care and that negligence directly caused the spinal cord injury, a lawsuit can be initiated. Negligent actions may encompass reckless driving, unsafe premises, medical malpractice, or product defects.
  • Duty of Care: The injured party must establish that the responsible party owed them a duty of care. For instance, drivers must adhere to traffic laws, medical professionals must provide adequate care, and property owners must maintain a safe environment.
  • Breach of Duty: It must be demonstrated that the responsible party breached their duty of care by failing to meet the expected standard, resulting in the spinal cord injury.
  • Causation: A clear link must exist between the negligent actions and the spinal cord injury, showing that the injury wouldn't have occurred without the defendant's breach of duty.
  • Damages: The injured party must have suffered actual damages as a consequence of the spinal cord injury, which can be economic (such as medical bills and lost wages) or non-economic (such as pain, suffering, and emotional distress).
