Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries
There are many causes of spinal cord injuries, with varying degrees of medical consequences. Sometimes the cause is due to non-traumatic spinal cord injury induced by arthritis, cancer or infection. Most often, the cause is attributed to traumatic injury such as motor vehicle accidents, sports accidents, falls and acts of violence.
Who is Responsible?
In many cases, another party is found to be at fault in some way for the victim’s injury. Proving who is responsible can be tricky, which is why you need an experienced legal team on your side. We must prove that another party acted in negligence or intentionally tried to harm you. Responsible parties can range from device manufacturers to doctors who provided inappropriate care.
Typical Expenses in SCI Cases
Common expenses that are incurred during a spinal cord injury case include fees for:
- Independent medical experts
- Damage experts
- Court expenses
- Costs of interviewing witnesses
Types of damages can include anything from loss of earning capacity to life care costs to pain and suffering. We can help you recover those fees. Call Kuzyk Law at 661-945-6969.
Just like you would hesitate to put your spinal cord injury in the hands of a doctor fresh out of med school, you wouldn’t trust just any new lawyer to handle your spinal cord injury case. In this business, nothing trumps experience. At Kuzyk Law, we have plenty of that: over 45 years serving clients like you throughout Southern California. In that time, we have helped more than 100,000 clients.
