Warwick Spinal Cord Injuries
A spinal cord injury can be terrifying because it creates uncertainty. Along with the brain, the spinal cord is a critical part of the central nervous system. Trauma to the spinal cord can be debilitating. Paralysis, loss of feeling, discomfort and mobility limitations can all result from a spinal cord injury.
When a spinal cord injury occurs, the emotional impact can be as devastating as the physical injuries. A victim may not immediately know the long-term consequences of their injuries. It may be unknown for a long time whether the victim can recover from their injuries and what lifelong challenges they can expect to face as a result of the injury. It may take years or even a lifetime to uncover the true extent of a spinal cord injury.
Of course, the medical expenses associated with spinal cord injuries can be too much. Ambulance services, emergency room treatments, ongoing care, and medical supplies can all quickly overwhelm household finances. Losing household income from the injured victim and care providers can also quickly create debt and cause strain. The repercussions of a spinal cord injury can be severe.

How Our Attorneys for Spinal Cord Injuries in Warwick Can Help
When a spinal cord injury changes life in an instant, the victim and their family suffer tremendously. Fortunately, a victim can find relief through the Rhode Island legal system. Pursuing a legal claim can help a victim and their family relieve some stress and recover financially for the losses that come with a spinal cord injury.
Because of the complexity and uncertainty of a spinal cord injury, a legal claim requires detailed attention. The claimant must have the medical evidence necessary to support their diagnosis and long-term prognosis. They must have medical experts in place to explain injuries and their effects. Building the evidence and presenting it effectively in the case of a spinal cord injury can be a detailed and complex undertaking. It’s important to begin working on the case quickly. Every minute that you wait to contact an experienced spinal cord injury attorney can mean lost evidence and delays in receiving fair compensation.
Spinal Cord Injury Cases and Negligence
Negligence is often the underlying cause of a spinal cord injury. Everyone in society has a duty to act in ways that avoid injury to others. Negligence is the opposite of care. Negligence occurs when a person’s behavior falls below the legal standard to act carefully in order to prevent accidents that cause injuries. Most spinal cord injuries are based on negligence. They may also be based on recklessness and incidents of intentional assault and battery.
Winning a spinal cord injury case means showing how the negligence of another party results in injury to the victim. In addition to demonstrating the cause and effect between the person’s actions and the victim’s injuries, a successful spinal cord injury case also requires demonstrating the full extent of the injury. Rhode Island law allows a victim to claim compensation for both the immediate financial losses following a spinal cord injury and the long-term, projected losses.
The full losses from a spinal injury may not be known by the time the legal process resolves. The uncertainty of future medical expenses makes it especially important to have the right medical evidence ready to show the jury and the opposing party in the case. The exact process of building a legal claim depends on the facts of the events leading to the spinal cord injury. Attorneys for the victim may need to focus extra attention on showing the negligence of the other party. On the other hand, the primary dispute in the case may be your long-term injuries and financial needs going forward. Skilled spinal cord injuries can assist a victim with building and proving each element required to make the claim successful.
Working With Our Warwick Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers
Even though the thought of filing a legal claim may seem scary, most spinal cord cases do not go to a trial in front of a jury. Working with a skilled legal team can help a victim handle the claim effectively in a way that removes the stress and uncertainty of the legal process. In fact, diligently working with a trained legal team to build the evidence may be just what the victim needs in order to receive fair compensation without a trial. When the other side sees that a victim has diligently prepared a strong case, they may be more likely to agree to pay a settlement voluntarily rather than risk the outcome of a trial.
An experienced lawyer can help the client negotiate non-trial resolutions including informal negotiations and formal alternative dispute resolution proceedings. The decision to take a case to trial is ultimately a decision for the client. A spinal cord injury lawyer helps the victim build a strong case, negotiate a non-trial resolution and make informed decisions about how to resolve their claim.
