After a shocking and unexpected injury to the spinal cord, there can be a lot of uncertainty associated with the past, present and future. As far as the past goes, people may wonder just what exactly happened to them or a loved one that caused such a life-altering spinal cord injury. In the present, the emotional toll can make even getting up in the morning difficult. When it comes to the future, people may be wondering what it looks like for the injured and their family moving forward after a spinal cord injury.
Spinal cord injury can be sustained in almost an infinite number of ways. The most common spinal cord injuries are sustained in car accidents, work accidents or even other types of sudden traumatic injury incidences that are often associated with negligence. Negligence is a term given to an incident in which ‘but for’ another’s actions or inaction, the accident and injury would not have occurred. Most people and businesses have a duty of care to uphold.
At Bradley, Drendel & Jeannie we understand the stress that a Reno accident resulting in spinal cord injury can cause. Medical costs, property damage and lost wages due to a loved one’s, or a person’s own, inability to return to work after the injury can also be recovered. The silver-lining is that most costs can be recovered if attributed to a negligent party. This process begins by filing a personal injury suit against whoever is believed to be at fault.
Whatever stage people are at after a spinal cord injury, we have seen it all. You may have suspicions about the negligent party, but no concrete facts to go on. We can help take that burden off of a person’s shoulders by discovering the facts and evidence that need to be prepared for proving fault. People have been through enough after spinal cord injury.
