Michigan Back and Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers
A spinal cord injury can have life-altering implications for the injury victim and his or her family. Because the spinal cord serves as the “highway for communication” for our nervous system, damage to the spinal cord can cause a variety of secondary conditions for the accident victim. Some of the common complications and results from a spinal cord injury include infection, paralysis, reduced sensations, loss of muscle control, loss of bodily functions, and sensory disorders.
The Michigan spinal cord injury lawyers of The Clark Law Office want to help you and your family as you go through this very difficult experience. We aggressively pursue your claim through negotiating with the insurance provider for a fair settlement. If negotiations fail, we are prepared to file a spinal cord injury lawsuit to fight for justice and compensation. Call 517-347-6900 to schedule a free legal consultation with a Michigan spinal cord injury attorney.
Filing a Claim for Negligence and Liability
When you or a loved one suffers a spinal cord injury because of another party’s negligence or wrongdoing, you have the right to seek compensation for your damages. To recover compensation for damages, you must file a claim pursuant to the personal injury laws of Michigan. Depending on the incident or accident that led to the injury, you may need to meet the legal elements required to prove liability under Michigan’s medical malpractice, premises liability, product liability, or general personal injury laws.
Our Okemos spinal cord injury attorneys have experience filing claims related to all areas of personal injury law. We believe when a person is injured because of the negligence or wrongdoing of another party, that person should recover full compensation for all damages. However, proving fault and liability can be difficult. Therefore, we urge you to contact our Michigan personal injury law firm now for a free consultation so that we can begin investigating your claim to identify the at-fault party and gathering the evidence required to prove liability.
Who is Responsible for Damages for My Spinal Cord Injury?
The person or party responsible for your spinal cord injury depends on the specific facts in your case. One or more parties may share responsibility for the injury. It is important to begin an investigation into the facts and circumstances surrounding your spinal cord injury as soon as possible after the injury. As more time passes, it can be more difficult to obtain the evidence we need to prove fault and liability.
