spinal cord injury lawyer Westfield, IN

The spinal cord is a component of the body’s central support system and helps keep us upright, while connecting parts of the skeleton and protecting the delicate nature of the middle spine. Injuries to the spinal cord can lead to many life-altering conditions, such as partial or total paralysis. If you have sustained a spinal cord injury because of the recklessness or negligence of someone else, then please contact Ward & Ward Personal Injury Lawyers as soon as you can. You may be owed compensation from the responsible parties who caused your injury accident to happen. Our Westfield, IN spinal cord injury lawyer is ready to hear from you. 

Determining Fault

The foundation of every personal injury case is about who is at fault and how the victim suffered. There are many types of accidents that can lead to spinal cord injuries, such as car accidents, truck accidents, workplace accidents, medical malpractice, and more. If someone else should have watched out for your safety and well-being, but failed to do so, then they could be liable for your injuries and other damages. After a case evaluation and performing more in-depth investigations, we can uncover the individuals and/or companies that should be listed in your lawsuit. Examples of helpful evidence to bring to your consultation include the following: 

  • A copy of the police report (if one was written)
  • Pictures and video of the accident and area around it
  • Surveillance footage (if available)
  • Medical records related to the accident injuries
  • Pay stubs and other related proof for lost income
  • Name and contact for witnesses to gather statements

Degrees Of Spinal Cord Damage

Spinal cord injuries are categorized into two different levels, incomplete and complete. With a complete spinal cord injury, there is permanent damage. Paraplegia or tetraplegia can result from this level of injury. An incomplete spinal cord injury means that there is partial damage to the spinal cord. There may be some remaining abilities and sensations to move. But the range of mobility will depend on the area of the spine that was injured and how severely it was damaged. Our dedicated spinal cord injury attorney can imagine the anguish associated with these types of injuries. We know that the damage may not be undone, but are committed to pursuing maximum compensation and a sense of justice for the harm caused.
