Miami Paralysis Injury Lawyer
There are few types of injuries that compare to paralysis when it comes to pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of joy of life. If you were paralyzed by another’s negligence, our compassionate Miami paralysis injury lawyer at Spencer Morgan Law will stop at nothing to see that the negligent party is held financially accountable for the devastating trauma they have caused.
Damages in a Paralysis Injury
Paralysis, whether caused by a spinal cord injury or brain trauma, is a devastating injury that often ends in permanent lack of feeling, numbness, loss of strength, and loss of movement. In incomplete spinal cord injuries, the patient may recover some degree of feeling and strength in the affected area. In complete spinal cord injuries, there is currently no treatment for recovery, and paralysis is permanent. In either case, living with paralysis is incredibly costly. Yearly medical expenses, depending on the type and degree of paralysis, range from $1 million to $400,000 in the first year alone, with subsequent yearly medical expenses ranging between $200,000 and $50,000. As such, your paralysis case is likely “worth” a considerable sum, and it is in your best interest to maximize the compensation you receive from the negligent party.
Car crashes, truck collisions, and pedestrian and cyclist crashes are the leading cause of spinal cord damage in the U.S. There are simply too many distracted, impatient, drunk drivers out there making the streets unsafe for everyone. If you were tragically injured in any type of traffic collision, you have the ability to seek maximum compensation from the at-fault driver for their negligent driving. Because of the extremely high “value” of your damages, it is likely that you will max out that party’s insurance policy, as well as your own underinsured motorist (UM) policy.
Slip and Falls
Slips, trips, and falls happen when a property owner, property manager, or business owner fails in their duty to maintain safe walking conditions on their premises. A property owner can be held liable if they allow a hazardous condition—such as a broken hand railing on a set of stairs—to go unresolved. Other examples of hazardous conditions enabled by a negligent property/business owner include puddles at entrances, damaged flooring, ripped carpeting, poor lighting, and damaged stairs or escalator.
Other Premises Liability Accidents
While slip and falls are the leading cause of premises paralyzing injuries, there are plenty of other ways in which innocent invitees can succumb to spinal cord damage. These include dog attacks, swimming pool accidents and near-death drownings resulting in brain damage, roof or stair collapses, elevator accidents, and negligent security assaults.
