Spinal Cord Injury

Kansas City Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers

The Skill to Fight Complex Cases. The Compassion to Do What’s Right for You.

Your spinal cord serves the extremely important function of housing the bundle of nerves connecting the brain to the rest of the body. A spinal cord injury can result in paraplegia or quadriplegia and cause problems with breathing, bladder control, temperature regulation, and sexual functioning, among others.

When your spinal cord has been damaged in a fall, accident, or other injury, your life will undergo serious changes. We want to do our part to ease your struggles. If you or a loved one suffered a spinal cord injury as a result of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to receive compensation to cover past and future medical expenses, loss of wages, pain and suffering, and more. Our attorneys can tell you more about your rights and what to expect if you file a claim.

What Are My Legal Options After a Spinal Cord Injury?

When you have injured your spinal cord in an accident, you should find an experienced attorney to help you maximize your compensation. By investigating your accident, your legal team can find evidence of fault. Then, they can help you file a suit against the individual, company, or organization that caused the injury, and either negotiate a fair settlement or argue your case in trial.

We understand that, after a catastrophic injury such as yours, the thought of filing a lawsuit may seem overwhelming. When you get a good firm like DiPasquale Moore on your side, your life may actually become easier. Our team handles everything from phone calls to paperwork to helping you find the resources you need. If you have any questions about what steps you should take or whether you should accept a settlement, we are always available to offer counsel. You can also trust our lawyers to advise you according to your needs and goals—not theirs.

What Causes Spinal Cord Injury?

Spinal cord injuries are less frequent than many lesser ailments, but they affect an estimated 17,500 Americans each year. This number does not include individuals who do not survive the injury. Unfortunately, many of the 17,500 injuries could have been prevented. Most spinal cord injuries are caused by:

In some cases, one person—such as a risky driver—may be to blame. In others, like falls or sports injuries, you may find yourself trying to get a fair settlement from a large company or organization. Having a good lawyer and a strong case is the best way to protect your right to compensation, no matter what the cause.

Compensation After a Spinal Cord Injury

Along with being some of the most serious injuries, spinal cord injuries are among the most expensive. In the first year after a spinal cord injury, depending on its severity, a patient may face costs of up to $1,000,000. Though the medical bills taper off as you heal, you will face some costs—tangible and not—for the rest of your life.

To make sure our clients know what a fair settlement looks like, our team at DiPasquale Moore conducts a full analysis of your life prior to the accident so we can identify every change you may face after. When necessary, we bring in medical professionals and life care consultants to help calculate the amount you are likely to need to get necessary treatment into the future. Your compensation should include:

  • Medical bills
  • Future medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation/physical therapy
  • Accommodations and medical devices
  • Renovation to make your home accessible
  • Household/daily aid
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of consortium

For those families who lost a loved one to a spinal cord injury, we can help you bring a wrongful death claim, which may or may not include some of the above damages.

Fighting for Your Future

Even in accidents where the blame is obvious, the at-fault party is likely to offer you a settlement that’s significantly smaller than what the injury will cost you as you move forward. We want to make sure you have the financial means to access necessary care and live comfortably. The best way to do so is by filing a personal injury claim against the at-fault party.

Spinal cord injury lawsuits are too complex to leave up to any attorney. The medical issues your attorney must understand are complex, and the defendant may fight back rather than offer you a fair settlement. You need a legal team that you know will stop at nothing in their dedication to your case. At DiPasquale Moore, our award-winning personal injury lawyers have a track record of success and a reputation for providing strong, personalized advocacy.
