If you’ve sustained a spinal injury due to an accident, your first focus should be on getting the medical treatment you need to recover. However, limited finances may impact your ability to care for yourself and your family if you aren’t getting the insurance or disability payments you deserve.
Your right to compensation varies depending on the circumstances of your accident. Accident victims may have to pursue legal action to get full coverage for their spinal cord injury or other medical problem.
Michigan injury lawyers know state law and will walk you through the process to get you the most compensation possible for your medical bills and pain and suffering. Whether your injury is the result of medical malpractice, a slip and fall, sports injury, birth injury, defective product, or an auto accident, contact the law office of Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C., for a free consultation to discuss your situation.
Car crashes cause around half of all new spinal cord injuries each year. Some of the worst spinal injuries occur in car crashes, especially ones involving trucks and other large motor vehicles. Michigan’s no-fault laws require your own car insurance company to cover your injury claims, but you may be able to sue a negligent driver for certain expenses, including expenses in excess of your insurance coverage.
When faced with a permanent and severe spinal injury, you may be entitled to long-term disability benefits from the government or your insurance. Sometimes, benefit administrators will try to deny your benefits, especially if your condition is hard to prove with x-rays and other documents.
Severe and life-altering spine injuries can happen to anyone at any age. You need all the compensation you can get, especially if you require attendant care and can no longer work. An experienced catastrophic personal injury attorney at our law firm can determine the best legal path for you and arrange expert witnesses and other professionals to help with your case.
