St. Lucie County Paralysis
Spinal cord injuries (SCIs) not only are physically and emotionally devastating for victims and their families, but they also cost a veritable fortune to treat. Even a minor SCI might require invasive surgeries, prescription medications, rehabilitation, and follow-up appointments. But when a person is paralyzed, the lifetime cost of care can reach millions of dollars.
Although no amount of money can make up for the trauma of being paralyzed, you may be able to retain your financial security by filing a personal injury claim. The St. Lucie County paralysis lawyers at Donaldson & Weston know what it takes to find success in these cases. We can assess your medical records, arrange testimony from medical and financial experts, and vigorously represent your interests during settlement negotiations.
We require no money upfront, and you do not have to pay a retainer to take advantage of our legal services. Call 772-266-5555 to schedule a free consultation with a spinal cord injury attorney in St. Lucie County.Types of Spinal Cord Injury Cases We Handle
Any significant blow to the back can result in a spinal cord injury. Although there are countless factors that contribute to SCIs, many of these injuries are caused by negligence and intentional acts of violence.
If you or a member of your family sustained an SCI in a preventable accident, we want to hear your story. During your free consultation, a St. Lucie County paralysis attorney from our firm will assess any evidence you have compiled, review the facts of your case, and determine if you may be entitled to compensation.
We handle a variety of spinal cord injury cases including those arising from:
- Motor-Vehicle Collisions: Auto accidents are the number-one cause of SCIs in the United States. If you were injured by a distracted, drunk, or otherwise negligent driver, our lawyers will help you fight for justice and the maximum compensation.
- Falls: It is not uncommon for falls to result in devastating back injuries. Many of these accidents are caused by negligent property owners who fail to keep their premises in reasonably safe condition. If you suffered an SCI in a preventable accident, contact Donaldson & Weston to discuss your options for pursuing compensation.
- Sporting Accidents: Even the best protective gear cannot prevent all injuries. A significant percentage of SCIs in Florida happen due to sporting accidents. If you or your child was injured while playing a sport, contact our law firm to find out if you have grounds for a claim.
- Violent Acts: If you suffered a spinal cord injury in a violent attack, you should not have to cover the medical bills and lost income out of your own pocket. Let our attorneys help you fight for the compensation you deserve.
At Donaldson & Weston, we understand that a spinal cord injury can rob you of your career and threaten your financial future. We will do everything in our power to help you and your family recover the compensation needed to pay for medical bills, lost income, lost earning capacity, emotional distress, and other damages.
