If you are a victim of medical malpractice resulting in paralysis or a spinal cord injury, it’s critical to contact a Paralysis Injury Lawyer in Ann Arbor to help you file a lawsuit and pursue damages.
An experienced personal injury lawyer at Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C., and assist you with filing an injury claim, launching a lawsuit if your injury occurred due to someone else’s negligence, or appealing a denied claim with insurance companies.
Spinal cord damage can be classified as complete or incomplete. Incomplete spinal cord injuries mean there is still function between the spinal cord and the brain, so there is still some motor function level.
However, a complete spinal cord injury results in a total lack of motor function and sensation below the injury level. When catastrophic injuries leave an individual paralyzed, there can be other health complications since the spinal cord is central to the body’s function. These complications could include bladder or bowel dysfunction, chronic pain, and increased risk of respiratory illnesses.
If you’ve suffered a spinal cord injury or brain injury due to someone else’s negligence, you may want to file a lawsuit and seek full compensation for your expenses, as well as pain and suffering. The various damages you might pursue for paralysis cases can include:
Unfortunately, individuals who experience a complete spinal cord injury and suffer paralysis often require care in their homes or, to some degree, in their daily life to complete regular activities. This care, in addition to medical expenses incurred by the accident or incident, along with therapy sessions, can generate many expensive bills that the victim should not have to pay.
That’s where a law firm with experience in personal injury cases can step in to help you seek justice by holding the at-fault party accountable and suing for the above damages.
