How an Experienced Personal Injury Lawyer Helps Your Spinal Cord Injury Case

Our services can increase the value of your spinal cord injury case!

The dedicated team of New Britain spinal cord injury attorneys at the Carter Mario Law Firm is not afraid to litigate difficult cases. 

Our personal injury lawyers can increase the legal strength of your claim by thoroughly investigating the facts of your spinal cord accident in order to build a strong case and overcome potential legal defenses. Additionally, our New Britain team can maximize your recovery by retaining qualified expert witnesses such as neurosurgical spine specialists, economists, and occupational therapists.

Proving Liability in a Spinal Injury Case

We are not only litigators, but true advocates!

To win a spinal cord injury case, you must prove the opposing party committed an act of negligence that caused the accident. Connecticut law requires you to prove your case by a preponderance of the evidence, i.e., 51%. Our experienced New Britain spinal cord injury lawyers can gather evidence and build a compelling case to establish responsibility for your injury.

Common Causes of Spinal & Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries often occur in accidents involving significant amounts of physical force. Victims often suffer spinal cord injuries due to:

Whether it’s a vehicle accident, slip and fall, or other incident, you can be confident that our personal injury attorneys in New Britain will build a strong case to get you the compensation you deserve.

How to Know If You Have a Possible Spinal Injury Following an Accident

Seek immediate medical attention if you suspect a possible spinal cord injury!

Personal injury accident victims are sometimes unaware that they suffered spinal cord injuries. Knowing what to look for and seeking prompt medical attention is crucial.  According to the Mayo Clinic, common symptoms of an incomplete spinal cord injury (meaning that you still have physical sensation) include:

  • Difficulty breathing or coughing
  • Intense back pain
  • Loss of bladder or bowel control
  • Impaired sexual functions
  • Inability to move extremities
  • Numbness and loss of sensation

Oftentimes, it is easier to detect the contraction of a complete spinal cord injury, as a complete injury will result in sensation being lost. 

Potential Damages You Could Recover in a New Britain Spinal Injury Case

Obtain financial compensation for your injuries and more!

Connecticut law (52-572h) allows you to claim both economic and non-economic damages if you suffered a spinal cord injury due to an accident in New Britain, CT. You can obtain compensation for your financial losses, such as your medical expenses and lost wages. Along with your financial losses, you can obtain financial compensation for the physical pain and suffering your spinal cord injuries caused.

Average Settlement Amounts for Spinal Injury Cases in New Britain

Due to the unique circumstances of each personal injury case, there is no precise way to calculate the settlement value of each spinal cord injury case. According to the Christopher Reeve Foundation, depending on the age of the victim, the lifetime cost of treating a severe spinal cord injury can range from $1.1 to 4.7 million.  The New Britain spinal injury attorneys at the Carter Mario Law Firm have secured settlements for severe spinal cord injuries ranging from $250,000 to $17,000,000.

How Long Spinal Cord Injury Cases Typically Take

It generally takes longer to resolve cases involving severe spinal cord injuries compared to other personal injuries because victims often require extensive medical treatment. While Connecticut law (52-584) imposes a two-year statute of limitations on personal injury cases, our lawyers are committed to efficiently resolving your case while maintaining the goal of maximizing your financial compensation.

Spinal Cord Injury FAQs

Can I Be Permanently Disabled By a Spinal Cord Injury?

The answer depends on the severity of the accident. According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistics Center, 20% of spinal cord injury victims suffer complete paraplegia, with many also suffering from chronic pain. The New Britain personal injury attorneys at the Carter Mario Law Firm can provide insights into the possibility of permanent disability and guide you through the legal steps to seek appropriate compensation for future medical expenses and lifestyle adjustments.
