Determining Fault And Liability For Spinal Cord Injury Claims

On Behalf of | Aug 23, 2014 | Spinal Cord Injuries

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control estimates that nearly 12,000 people a year fall victim to a spinal cord injury (SCI). Out of these 12,000 victims, only about half of them pursue injury claims. Why, you might ask? Sometimes, filing and pursuing an injury claim on your own can be extremely frustrating, difficult, and confusing, without much hope of a pay-off.

However, with the help of an experienced lawyer and the following information, your claim will be hard to deny.

Proving Liability and Damages for SCI Claims

Insurance companies are apt to deny claims at the drop of a hat, but there are ways to help you get noticed. As long as you secure the following evidence, you’ll be able to deny them the opportunity to dismiss your claim:

  • Proof that the spine injury occurred due to the carelessness or negligence of another party, and not as a result of your own recklessness
  • Undeniable proof of your injury and the severity of that injury; hospital documentation, doctor statements, and eye witness reports are critical here
  • Proof that your injury occurred at the time of the accident, and not as a result of a preexisting condition or unrelated event
  • Proof that you and the defendant are both insured

Injury claims can be exhaustingly difficult to understand, excruciatingly drawn out, and painfully stressful. You have to deal with tricky and unscrupulous insurance companies that will do anything to deny you your rightful settlement.
