Brain and spinal cord injuries can cause unimaginable loss for victims and their families. These traumatic injuries may cost individuals thousands of dollars in medical and future care, while causing permanent reduction in or loss of income. Often, brain and spinal cord injuries are inflicted by a negligent or malicious party, like an irresponsible vehicle driver, who breaches their duty of care and causes an accident. In such cases, the victim can hold that party accountable for their pain and suffering through a personal injury claim.
In most brain and spinal cord injury claims, the victim must first prove that their injuries were caused by someone else’s negligent or malicious behavior. To do so, they must review their injuries, and the circumstances of the incident, to understand who should be held liable for those damages. Then the victim must seek proper medical care with qualified medical professionals in order to effectively document the injury and relate it to the incident. This investigation and documentation process plays an essential role in determining fault and building the strongest legal case possible.
