Boynton Beach Spinal Cord

Sustaining a spinal cord injury (SCI) threatens more than just your health and wellbeing. When you incur permanent damage like paralysis, it can threaten your entire family’s financial security.

Even with adequate health insurance, which might cover all the unanticipated costs of emergency care, you still have to worry about the ramifications of missing work for months. And if the resulting paralysis is severe, you may be unable to return to work at all, which essentially means a lifetime of lost income.

Fortunately, you may be able to recover compensation for all relevant damages from those who were responsible for the accident that caused your SCI. For example, if you were hurt in a drunk driving wreck, you could file a personal injury lawsuit against the reckless motorist. Likewise, if you fell at a store or business, you could sue the negligent property owner for failing to address the hazard that led to the incident.

Although there are countless scenarios in which it is possible to sustain an SCI, filing any kind of successful claim calls for evidence of liability. Clear evidence of fault is the foundation of every strong case that ends with a payout; however, you should not have to worry about compiling it on your own.

By turning to the paralysis attorneys at Donaldson & Weston, you can focus on your health while we handle the logistics of your claim. Our legal team is proud to go up against even the largest corporations and insurance companies on behalf of clients, and we have recovered several multimillion-dollar settlements and verdicts.

How to Prove Liability in a Spinal Cord Injury Claim

The best way to prove liability in your spinal cord injury claim will depend on the circumstances of your case. If you sustained an SCI in a motor-vehicle collision, for example, evidence of liability might include:

  • Dash cam footage;
  • Black box data;
  • The results of any chemical tests administered at the scene;
  • Photographs of the wreckage;
  • Police reports; and
  • Cell phone records.

If you slipped and fell on poorly maintained property, on the other hand, the following kinds of proof might contribute to the strength of your claim:

  • Surveillance footage;
  • Eyewitness testimony;
  • Photographs of the hazard;
  • The incident report; and
  • Maintenance records for the premises.

Other common causes of SCIs include acts of violence, sporting accidents, falling objects, and surgical complications. Since proving liability in each of these scenarios might require a considerable amount of strategic investigation, it is wise to seek legal counsel as soon as possible.

What Our Clients Say
The attorneys at Donaldson & Weston helped me get an amazing result on my case. Obviously I’ve been through a lot physically but I feel better now and the money really helped my family. When I was riding my bicycle I was hit by a truck that wasn't paying attention. I am not the suing type, but I would definitely hire this firm again. - M.P.
After my accident, i felt like I was being pulled in a bunch of different directions. I really didn't know what to do and all I wanted was someone to shoot me straight. The lawyers at the firm were so honest and definitely pointed me in the right direction. The staff was professional. I think it’s great that only attorneys work on my case, it definitely made me feel comfortable - D.L.
After my accident happened I waited to hear back from the insurance company for about 6 months. I just felt like they kept jerking me around. They even told me not to hire an attorney because it would mean less money in my pocket. I couldn't wait any longer because my bills were out of hand. I hired this firm and they were solid. I got a great result without having to go to court. - S.C.
