According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center, 13.5% of all spinal cord injuries in the United States are caused by violence. The physical, emotional, and financial costs of these spinal cord injuries can be devastating.
For decades, our experienced personal injury lawyers have been fighting to get those hurt in accidents the fair recoveries that they deserve, and that includes people who have suffered serious injuries in violent attacks.
How We Help
If you have suffered a spinal cord injury in a violent attack, then we will investigate the reasons why that attack occurred. In some cases, attacks occur because the property owner failed to provide reasonable security on the property, and thus made an attack possible. If this has happened to you, then you may be able to hold the property owner liable for your injuries in a negligent security lawsuit.
Our attorneys will investigate what happened to you, advise you as to whether you may have a negligent security claim, and pursue your fair recovery in a civil lawsuit against the property owner.
What Your Fair Recovery Includes
If you can prove that you suffered a spinal cord injury because of a property owner’s negligent security then you should be able to recover for your past, current, and future:
- Medical expenses.
- Lost income.
- Out-of-pocket costs.
- Pain and suffering.
According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center, the average yearly expenses for various forms of spinal cord injuries are as follows:
- High tetraplegia: $1,065,980 for the first year and $185,111 for each subsequent year.
- Low tetraplegia: $770,264 for the first year and $113,557 for each subsequent year.
- Paraplegia: $519.520 for the first year and $68,821 for each subsequent year.
- Motor function (any level): $347,896 for the first year and $42,256 for each subsequent year.
And these expenses are only for costs related directly to the spinal cord injury, such as medical costs and living expenses. They do not include things such as lost income or pain and suffering.
