Paralysis is a life-altering consequence of a spinal cord injury. While many of these injuries are sustained via sports accidents, falls, or vehicle collisions, some spinal cord injury cases result from medical malpractice and negligence. If you have suffered a spinal cord injury and another party is at fault, contact an experienced personal injury attorney to help you recover compensation.
At Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C., law offices in Michigan, we can help with a personal injury claim, long-term disability claim denial appeal, or filing a lawsuit.
Medical malpractice cases are complicated, and you need a skilled spinal cord injury lawyer in your corner. In Michigan, each medical malpractice case starts with filing an NOI or a Notice of Intent to File Suit.
When an NOI is filed, it prolongs the statute of limitations in Michigan for 182 days. Within this timeframe, you’ll need to notify all medical professionals being sued in writing. The statute of limitations in Michigan is two years for medical malpractice cases or six months from discovery time.
To successfully settle a medical malpractice case, there are a few factors that need to be proven in the state of Michigan. The burden of proof is:
A Paralysis Injury Lawyer in Canton from a law firm with a successful track record in settling catastrophic injury cases can help you deal with insurance companies and government agencies to seek compensation.
