Fontana Spinal Cord Injury Attorney

Fontana spinal cord injury attorneys represent residents of Fontana and elsewhere in California who have sustained spinal cord injuries in an accident caused by someone else’s fault. We understand the significant impacts of a spinal cord injury and how it affects every single part of a person’s life. Spinal cord injuries are sudden and unexpected which means that there is no way to prepare for this life-changing event.

Impacts on the family

The families of spinal cord injury sufferers are deeply affected by these injuries as well because not only is it difficult to see a loved one injured and suffering, but everyday family routines and operations change and families must learn to cope. For example, if the injured person financially supports the family and is unable to work or if the injured person has always been responsible for driving children to school and their activities and suddenly he or she is not able to do those things, the entire family has to cope and adapt. Often families will have to hire someone to help with childcare or to take care of the spinal cord injury victim who needs around the clock care.

Spinal cord injury accidents

Spinal cord injuries can occur in a number of ways and some of the most common spinal cord injury accidents are listed below:

  • Car, bicycle, pedestrian, or motorcycle accident
  • Falls, especially from heights
  • Being crushed between a vehicle and an object
  • Medical malpractice
  • Physical violence

Amount of financial recovery for spinal cord injuries

There is no formula for determining the amount that a spinal cord injury claim is worth. There are a number of factors that impact the value of a spinal cord injury claim, however, including those listed below.

  • Severity of injury – The severity of the injury is important when it comes to financial recovery such as whether the spinal cord injury is complete or incomplete. The long term medical outlook is also important.
  • Defendant’s conduct – If the defendant’s conduct that caused the accident was egregious, punitive damages may be available under California law.
  • Injured victim’s fault – Sometimes defendants will raise the comparative fault defense alleging that the plaintiff was partially responsible for the accident and resulting injuries. Comparative fault is not a bar to recovery and even if the plaintiff is found partially at fault, he or she should be able to recover a portion of injuries and damages from the defendant.
  • Ability to work – When a spinal cord injury prevents someone from returning to work or significantly reduces his or her earning capacity, that will be a significant factor in his or her financial recovery.
