Benefits of Hiring a Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer
Legally Reviewed and Edited by: Terry Cochran
A spinal cord injury can be devastating and one of the worst injuries anyone can experience. These injuries are commonly revealed immediately from partial immobility to total paralysis, but many others show up after the injuring event.
With such variations in the level and onset of injuries, it is imperative that those suffering a spinal cord injury seek out and consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. With the financial costs associated with care and treatment being astronomical for both the victims and their families, seeking legal advice and financial relief is essential.
More specifically, the hiring of a specialized spinal cord injury attorney can provide the following benefits.
Expertise and Experience in Spinal Cord Injury Cases
With so much involved in a spinal cord injury case, the expertise a spinal cord injury lawyer can provide is invaluable from both a medical and legal standpoint. Knowing what is uniquely involved in these cases, your claim can be filed and concluded more expeditiously. Your legal team will aggressively work with insurance companies and file lawsuits due to any negligent acts of others.
As the leading spinal cord injury law firm in Michigan, Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C. knows the steps to take to get what you need and deserve. Whether the injury occurred due to a car accident, a slip and fall, a workplace accident, medical malpractice, or product liability, there are specialists who know how to respond in each area.
Senior partner, Eileen Kroll, offers her experience as a registered nurse and a personal injury attorney to help your case proceed. She and her dedicated team evaluate medical data and use their knowledge and experience with personal injury claims to provide you with the best legal representation available.
Skilled in Legal Processes and Negotiation
Personal injury law is a specialized area requiring the medical understanding of injuries and the legal processes surrounding each type of case.
Skilled spinal cord injury attorneys immediately go to work, filing the legal documents needed at the required times, knowing what types of information is necessary to complete forms and claims, and also adhering to specific timelines. For instance, in Michigan, the statute of limitations on filing a claim is three years. If the spinal cord injury is not discovered until three years pass, you have six months to file.
Your spinal cord injury lawyer will also use top-notch negotiating skills as they work with insurance companies and others involved in your case. Most often, they will seek compensation for your medical bills, necessary life accommodations, lost wages, and for your pain and suffering as well. With such skillful negotiations, they may be able to settle sooner, allowing you to rest and start putting you and your family’s life back together.
Understanding of Claim Values
Knowing how to value your specific spinal cord injury claim is another benefit to hiring a lawyer experienced in these cases. A spinal cord injury is one of the highest costing injuries to suffer and can devastate your finances quickly. Understanding this, your attorney considers all factors when filing your claim and when involved in any negotiations on your behalf.
Factors considered in getting the compensation you deserve include the level of your injury, current and future medical requirements, pain and suffering, and lost wages.
