Fort Lauderdale Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer

Spinal cord injury lawsuits are some of the most serious cases the courts see here in Fort Lauderdale. Injuries involving the spinal cord can easily be fatal or interrupt the messaging system between the brain and the body. This can cause permanent, irreversible paralysis below the point of injury. If you or a loved one has a spine injury after any kind of accident, come to the Law Offices of David I. Fuchs for a free consultation. You could be eligible for a lifetime’s worth of damage compensation.

Factors Involved in a Spinal Cord Injury Lawsuit

If your spinal cord injury gives you grounds to sue a driver, doctor, manufacturer, assailant, or another party, you could have a lawsuit on your hands. For the most part, you can successfully settle a spine injury claim during settlement negotiations with an insurance company, without having to take your case to trial. If the defendant will not offer what your claim is worth, however, our attorneys can represent you in front of a judge or jury in pursuit of fair compensation. Here are a few issues that could arise during a spine injury lawsuit in Fort Lauderdale:

  • The legal theory of negligence. Negligence causes most spinal cord injuries. For example, a distracted driver running over a pedestrian and causing a spine injury is an act of negligence. You will need to prove the party you’re suing is guilty of negligence or a breach of duty in causing your spine injury.
  • Strict liability for unsafe products. In Florida, a manufacturing company could be strictly liable (in other words, liable without you having to prove negligence) for a dangerous or defective product that causes a spine injury. For instance, if a defective seatbelt unhooked in a car accident and contributed to a spine injury, the manufacturer of the seatbelt could be strictly liable for the victim’s damages.
  • Multiple parties at fault. Many personal injury claims involve more than one defendant or party allegedly responsible for causing the accident. Florida is a comparative negligence state, meaning the courts can split fault amongst one or more parties. In many cases, the courts will hold multiple parties “joint and severally liable” for the incident, meaning they each must pay the total amount of compensation.
  • Damages for lifelong injuries. Most spine injuries result in permanent disability, such as paralysis, or the loss of movement and sensation in the affected area. This can lead to compensation for a lifetime worth of medical bills, pain and suffering, lost earnings, and other damages. Don’t trust anyone with such high-value claims – come to our experienced Fort Lauderdale lawyers.
