Financial Recovery for a Spinal Cord Injury
The consequences of a spinal cord injury depend on many factors, including what portion of the spine was impacted.
Fortunately, injured claimants may be eligible to recover compensation for their injuries and damages.
People can recover compensation for damages such as:
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Lost income
- Mental anguish
- Loss of consortium
- Lost earning capacity
The skilled team at Skaug law can calculate your damages and help you win compensation and justice from the responsible party.
Identifying Negligent Parties
The majority of personal injury lawsuits are based on the theory of negligence.
If a person’s negligent and reckless actions cause a collision, they may be held liable in court.
If they also cause injury to someone else in a crash, they may be required to pay the victim compensation for their injuries.
More than one party can be held liable in a personal injury lawsuit.
Liability or responsibility for an accident is determined by a thorough accident investigation or the assistance of accident reconstruction specialists.
The Nampa spinal cord injury lawyer will need to prove the defendant owed a duty of care and their lack of care caused the accident as well as the injured claimant’s injuries.
The state follows the comparative negligence doctrine.
This means the injured person may not collect compensation if they are found to be more than 50 percent responsible for the accident or their injuries.
If a person is less than 50% responsible, their compensation award will be reduced by their percentage of fault for an accident.
Filing a Lawsuit in Nampa
In order to recover compensation, people must abide by the statute of limitations.
The statute of limitations as explained under Idaho Statutes Section 5-219 is the deadline to file a lawsuit.
Victims in a personal injury accident have no longer than two years from the date of the crash to seek compensation from the responsible party.
