Miami Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer

The debilitating impact of a spinal cord injury often affects a person for the rest of their life. If partial or total paralysis is involved, spinal cord injury victims also face various medical complications that lead to additional medical costs and needs. Insurers are aware of costs associated with spinal cord injuries from their own historical data.

As a result, it’s not uncommon for insurance companies to fight paying any more than they absolutely have to in cases involving spinal cord injuries. That’s why we’re prepared to work with medical economists, life care planners, and medical specialists in establishing the scope and extent of our client’s injuries.

At Ferrer & Gonzalez, PL, our attorneys are prepared to deal with the kinds of tactics insurers use to cloud issues, shift blame for an accident, or allege that costs are overestimated.

Don’t let an insurance company take advantage of you; contact the spinal cord injury lawyers at the personal injury Ferrer & Gonzalez, PL, today to schedule a free consultation to discuss your case.

Holding Negligent Parties Financially Accountable

It’s not uncommon for truck drivers, drivers of other cars, boaters, or construction companies to deny responsibility in accidents. Since Florida is a comparative negligence state, insurers realize that a person’s compensation will be reduced by the amount they are held at fault. If you suffered $100,000 in losses but the court determined you were 40 percent at fault, you would be eligible to recover only $60,000 in damages. Insurers have an incentive – especially in motor vehicle accidents – to try and lay a portion or all of the blame on you, the injury victim. That’s why our attorneys work with experienced accident investigators and specialists in reconstructing what happened and assigning fault accordingly.

Paralysis and Other Catastrophic Injuries

Any time the body suffers trauma or damage to the brain or spinal cord, the central nervous system may be effected, which can impact how the body is able to move and function. Depending on the area that is damaged by the impact, paralysis may occur, as well as conditions that include:

  • Scar tissue
  • Broken or pinched vertebrae
  • Burst fractures
  • Contusions or bruising
  • Concussions and other closed head injuries

In some cases, surgery, rehabilitation and other treatment may be able to partially or fully restore bodily function. Many people who suffer these kinds of conditions, however, will need some level of continuing care throughout their lives. Our firm will help you and your family seek compensation that is appropriate for your past, present and future medical needs.
