West Palm Beach Spinal Cord
Sustaining a spinal cord injury (SCI) can change your life in an instant. Even if the damage is relatively low on the spine and you have a promising prognosis, you may be unable to work for months. And if permanent paralysis results, you may not be able to return to work at all.
The thought of never maintaining gainful employment again is certainly frightening. Years or even decades of lost wages and benefits can easily amount to millions of dollars. As if that was not stressful enough, such losses represent a mere fraction of the total damages that people who sustain an SCI typically incur.

Call 561-299-3999 to schedule a free case evaluation with a paralysis attorney in West Palm Beach.How Much Is My Case Worth?
During your first meeting with a paralysis attorney, you will probably want to ask how much your claim is worth. This is one of the most common questions we get from potential clients, and we understand why.
Unfortunately, it is impossible to know how much any given personal injury claim is worth before the proceedings have played out. We can, however, calculate a fair settlement amount and do everything in our power to get the opposing party to cooperate. After we assess the evidence you have gathered, listen to your story, and investigate your accident, we can help you understand the potential outcomes of your case and the strategies we will use to fight for the best possible result.
As a client of Donaldson & Weston, you will be able to take advantage of the vast legal resources at our disposal including a network of expert witnesses. We know how to use expert witness testimony and other evidence to ensure your case is as strong as possible. The sooner we can investigate your case, the more likely it will be that essential evidence will still be available, which may increase the likelihood of winning a settlement without going to trial.Proving Liability in West Palm Beach Spinal Cord Injury Cases
