Please read on to learn more to see if a personal injury claim might be right for you.

Events that can Cause Paralysis

In a personal injury claim, you need to be able to prove that someone was careless or negligent and their behavior resulted in your injury.

Did you or a loved on suffer a paralysis injury due to the following?

  • Car accident. Catastrophic injuries, including spinal cord injuries, are far too common in car wrecks.
  • Bicycle accident. With little protection, bicyclists can sustain serious injuries in a crash.
  • Falling. Did a property owner’s unsafe premises cause you to fall?
  • Birth injuries. Sometimes, severe injuries arise due to medical negligence during childbirth.
  • Criminal behavior. Gun shot and knife wounds can damage the spinal cord, causing paralysis.

If you believe that someone was responsible for what happened to you, please don’t delay in reaching out for legal support. In the state of Washington, you have only three years to file a personal injury claim (RCW 4.16.080). With few exceptions, you’ll be out of luck if you miss that deadline.

How Does a Paralysis Injury Claim Work?

There are two ways that a lawyer can pursue compensation in a paralysis claim. Most commonly, the lawyer will attempt to negotiate a settlement on your behalf. This happens outside of court. However, if the lawyer feels that the settlement offer is too low or that negotiations aren’t proceeding fairly, a lawsuit can be filed. In a lawsuit, your case will be heard before a judge or jury and a verdict delivered.
