Have you or a loved one been paralyzed due to a catastrophic accident? When you or a loved one are involved in a car crash, catastrophic sports injury, accidental fall, medical malpractice incident, or other event that leaves you paralyzed, it is nothing short of a tragedy. But when the accident was caused by the negligence or reckless indifference of another person and you are left in both medical and financial dismay, the situation is even worse.
In some cases, no amount of money may be able to undue the damage done. That is a hard, but true fact. But Kansas law provides that those who suffer serious injury and financial hardship due to the actions of others are entitled to full compensation for their loss.
However, to make the law mean more than just words on paper, you will need the experience and determination of a skilled Kansas paralysis lawyer.
Types of Paralysis
All paralysis is not the same. The type of paralysis suffered will not only physically affect the victim, but will also affect the level of reimbursement one can expect to receive after filing a personal injury lawsuit.
Paralysis can be permanent or temporary, partial or full, treatable or untreatable and caused by damage to the nervous system. Generally centering around damage to the brain or spinal cord.
Types of paralysis include:
- Monoplegia, affecting a single limb.
- Paraplegia, affecting both legs.
- Hemiplegia, which affects an arm and a leg on the same side of the body.
- Quadriplegia, which affects all four limbs.
There is usually no way to know how long paralysis may continue or how much it may improve via therapy over the years, but a good paralysis lawyer will know how to tally all of your past, present, and likely future medical expenses, along with loss of income and other economic damages. An experienced paralysis lawyer will also understand how to negotiate for maximum non-economic (pain and suffering) compensation.
Rely on an Experienced Lawyer
Your chances of winning maximum compensation are greatly enhanced by relying on an experienced paralysis lawyer who knows how to file the suit efficiently, negotiate with insurers, and effectively argue your case in court.
You only have two years from the date of injury to file your suit. Once you pass the statute of limitations, you will lose that right. Do not procrastinate!
The insurance company or at-fault party may try to deny fault, give you a low-ball, "take-it-or-leave-it" offer, or assign partial fault on you in order to lower the claim amount. Only the reputation of an experienced lawyer will force a reasonable settlement.
