Spinal cord injuries can lead to temporary or permanent paralysis for victims. Unfortunately, there are times when these traumatic injuries are caused by the careless or negligent actions of other individuals, businesses, or entities. At Manning Law, we are here to help if you need an Aurora spinal injury attorney by your side. If you or a loved one has sustained spinal cord trauma caused by the actions of another person, we will help you secure the compensation you need to get through this.
The reality of these cases is that spinal cord injury victims and their family members often lack the resources necessary to go up against well-funded insurance carriers and at-fault parties. That is why a spinal cord injury lawyer is so essential to securing maximum compensation for these claims.
A spinal cord injury lawyer in Aurora will be able to handle every aspect of these claims on behalf of their client. This can include conducting a complete investigation into the incident to determine liability. An attorney will also thoroughly analyze any insurance policy documents related to the claim to ensure that clients are receiving the compensation they truly deserve. Finally, an attorney will fully prepare to take the case to trial if necessary to ensure their clients are cared for.
Data provided by the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center (NSCISC) shows us that there are around 18,000 new spinal cord injury cases every year across the country. Currently, there are anywhere from 250,000 to 500,000 people living with spinal cord injuries in this country.
Spinal cord injuries can occur in a wide variety of ways in and around the Aurora area. At Manning Law, our team has a long history of helping clients who have sustained spinal cord injuries due to the following:
This is certainly not an exhaustive list of the ways that spinal cord injuries occur due to the negligence of others. If you have any questions about your particular case, our attorneys are standing by to help you today.
There may be various types of compensation available to spinal cord injury victims in Aurora. At Manning Law, we strive to recover special damages and general damages on behalf of every spinal cord injury victim that we serve. This includes, but is not limited to, the following:
According to data available from the NSCISC, we can see that the first year of medical care for spinal cord injury victims can range anywhere from $380,000 to more than $1,000,000. Additionally, each following year of medical care can add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars in the spinal cord injury victim’s life.
However, the true costs of a spinal cord injury go far beyond these medical monetary costs. This includes the costs of new vehicles to accommodate any type of paralysis, the cost of modifying a home to aid with mobility, the cost of medical devices, and more.
Additionally, family members of spinal cord injury victims will likely suffer from significant emotional and psychological harm as well. They will likely no longer be able to interact with their loved ones the way they used to be able to, and they may lose the support and companionship they deserve.
At Manning Law, we take Aurora spinal cord injury cases on a contingency fee basis. This means the clients will not have to pay any upfront or out-of-pocket costs related to their case. Our clients only pay legal fees after we successfully recover the compensation they need. If we do not win the case, our clients do not pay.
Spinal cord injury victims in Aurora need to be aware that they have a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit in these cases. The Colorado personal injury statute of limitations is two years from the date the injury occurs. If a spinal cord injury victim fails to file a lawsuit within this two-year time frame, they will lose the ability to recover the compensation they are entitled to.
Additionally, if there are any insurance carriers involved in the claim, reporting deadlines are usually much sooner than this overall two-year time frame. Failing to report an injury to an insurance carrier promptly may result in a claim delay or denial.
If you or somebody you love has sustained a spinal cord injury in the Aurora area, you may be entitled to various types of compensation.
