Elements of an Orange County Spinal Cord Injury Claim

The claim process can be challenging to navigate, with several elements involved in achieving the compensation you deserve. Our talented lawyers understand these intricacies and help you build a strong claim, which includes the following elements:

PROVING FAULT

As a spinal cord injury victim filing a claim, you must fulfill the burden of proof. This means your claim must clearly demonstrate the following:

  • The liable party owed you a duty of care.
  • They breached this duty of care by acting negligently.
  • This negligence directly caused the accident and your injuries.
  • Your injuries resulted in damages.

We may help you prove these points by conducting a thorough investigation and gathering evidence, such as medical records, police reports, witness testimony, and traffic camera video footage.

POTENTIALLY RECOVERABLE DAMAGES

If another party causes your spinal injury, you should not have to worry about paying your medical bills, so our passionate lawyers fight tirelessly for the compensation you deserve, which may include the following costs:

  • Past, present, and future medical bills
  • Lost wages from missed work
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Long-term care
  • Rehabilitation and physical therapy
  • Medical equipment
  • Counseling
  • Home and vehicle modifications
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Disability
  • Reduced quality of life

When calculating your claim’s value, we consider every detail to ensure we include all applicable losses and negotiate a fair settlement. Insurance adjusters often use tactics to undermine claims, such as blaming your injuries on a pre-existing condition, saying you are responsible for the accident, and denying your claim. We understand these tactics and work hard to secure a successful outcome.
