Is Someone At Fault For Your Virginia Paralysis Injury? We Can Help.

On Behalf of | Feb 2, 2016 | Spinal Cord Injuries

If you have suffered paralysis after a serious accident in DC, you are probably overwhelmed by questions: How am I supposed to pay medical bills when I can’t work? Should I sue the person who caused the accident? And perhaps most importantly, How can I tell who is responsible for my suffering?

The attorneys at Shevlin Smith want you to know that there is help available. We can answer all of your legal questions regarding your spinal cord injury case in your FREE consultation, including questions about injuries caused by:

  • Car accidents. Roughly half of all spinal cord injuries nationwide are caused by motor vehicle accidents. The driver who hit you could easily be at fault, but so could the vehicle manufacturer if a faulty seat belt or an improperly designed headrest caused your injury.
  • Violent trauma. Many spinal cord injuries are caused by a sudden impact, such as a fall from a great height or full-contact sports. Unfortunately, violent acts such as muggings, gang violence or domestic abuse are also common causes of paralysis.
  • Medical malpractice. One of our recent clients suffered paraplegia as a result of an undiagnosed tumor on her spine. We were able to get her a significant settlement in her case by proving that she would not have lost the use of her legs if her doctors had performed thorough treatment over the course of her hospital stay.

While a DC spinal cord injury may have many causes, there is only one remedy: pursuing a case against the person responsible. Our Fairfax spinal cord injury lawyers can get you justice in your case and win you the settlement you need for your medical costs.
