When Can You File a Spinal Cord Injury Lawsuit?

Florida residents who have suffered a spinal cord injury due to the negligent actions of another qualify to file a lawsuit against that party or their insurance company. For these cases, the burden is on the plaintiff (the victim suing) and their attorney to prove the following elements of the case:

  • The defendant (the party being sued) owed the plaintiff a duty of care, which simply means they were legally obligated to act with care for the plaintiff’s health;
  • The defendant negligently breached their duty of care to the plaintiff, such as if a medical professional misdiagnosed the plaintiff’s health condition or a motorist was texting while driving;
  • The defendant’s negligence led to an accident or incident in which the plaintiff was injured, such as if the misdiagnosis caused the plaintiff to suffer further injury or the texting driver caused an accident with the plaintiff; and
  • The plaintiff was both injured and experienced losses as a direct result of the defendant’s negligence, such as medical debt, lost wages, reduced future earning capacity, pain and suffering, loss of quality of life, and more.

If the plaintiff is successful in proving all the above elements, they will be awarded compensation in the amount of their losses, or damages. Spinal cord injuries tend to greatly disrupt and/or forever alter one’s life, as well as the lives of their loved ones, and cost tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars every year. Our trial lawyers work to maximize the compensation paid to our clients with spinal cord injuries, ensuring they have the means to pay for the care they need. Moreover, we fight to put our clients in the best possible position for moving forward.
