This is the first post in a series which will deal with the handling of Austin, Texas injury cases which result in paralysis. We are writing on this topic because, short of wrongful death, there is likely no more serious an injury case than one which leaves the victim paralyzed. Such cases leave the victim in need of permanent care and likely unable to earn a living. Our goal with this series is to provide information which will assist victims and their families in knowing what to expect as their case moves forward. If you or a loved one have been harmed by another’s negligence,contact our personal injury attorneys today.
We will be addressing several topics over our coming posts. Issues which we will analyze include:
- What to do after a loved one has been paralyzed
- Calculating damages in such a case
- Taking a paralysis case to trial
- Choosing an attorney to handle your paralysis case
As we will discuss in our later articles, it is important that you immediately seek representation after a loved one has been injured. A victim may quickly be contacted by insurance adjusters hoping to settle the case. An immediate settlement, however, would likely leave the victim without the funds needed for future medical care, surgeries, and needed rehabilitation. The victim would also likely not be compensated for the reduction in their ability to earn money. When selecting an attorney to handle such a case, it is important that you choose someone with experience in such matters and who has the financial resources to retain necessary experts and to see your case through to completion.
Our Austin personal injury attorneys deal with cases resulting in paralysis. Our lawyers will stay in regular contact with you and your loved ones while you are being treated for your injuries. Once your damages can be reasonably calculated, then a demand packet will be sent to the insurance adjusters. This demand packet will state the amount for which you will settle the case. Such an amount will include monies for damages incurred, future expenses and lost wages, pain and suffering, and possibly punitive damages. If the matter does not settle, then we will not hesitate to file a lawsuit on your behalf and take the matter to trial if needed. Contact us today to speak with a lawyer.
