Fighting for Your Rights as a Spinal Cord Injury Survivor

Fighting for Your Rights as a Spinal Cord Injury Survivor

If you or a loved one has suffered a spinal cord injury, you know that the physical, emotional, and financial challenges can be immense. However, you also have important legal rights that can help you secure the compensation, care, and support you need during this difficult time. Understanding these rights and knowing where to turn for help is essential.

Seek Experienced Legal Representation

One of the most important things you can do in the aftermath of a spinal cord injury is to contact an experienced personal injury or disability rights attorney. An attorney can advise you on your legal options and rights regarding potential negligence claims, insurance disputes, access issues, employment discrimination, and more. They can deal directly with insurance companies and other parties while you focus on your recovery.

Explore Your Insurance Options

Navigating health insurance after an injury can be incredibly challenging. An attorney and advocate can help you fight for coverage of injury-related care, equipment, rehabilitation services, and other pressing needs. They can appeal denials or limitations to your coverage, negotiate with insurers, and take legal action if necessary.

If you had insurance at the time of your injury, be sure you understand what is covered and what limitations apply.

Seek Disability Protections and Accommodations

Federal law provides important protections and rights for those living with disabilities under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). State and local laws also frequently offer protection in areas like accessible housing and employment accommodations.

A knowledgeable lawyer can help advise if your injury qualifies you as legally disabled. If so, they can help you request reasonable accommodations from employers, schools, businesses or property owners as needed. This may include things like flexible work arrangements, facility modifications, accessible parking, or assistive technologies.

Explore Additional Legal Claims

While insurance disputes and disability accommodations are common legal needs after spinal cord injuries, they may not be the only issues that arise. If your injury occurred due to another party’s negligence, such as in a vehicle accident or a dangerous property condition, you could have strong grounds for a personal injury lawsuit.

Likewise, if medical errors during your treatment and care contributed to further harm or health declines, you could potentially pursue a medical malpractice claim. In cases like these, it is essential to have a qualified attorney investigate matters fully and preserve important evidence and records before time limits expire. They can then counsel you on the merits of the case and craft a litigation strategy aimed at securing you fair compensation for all that you have endured.

Don’t Face Challenges Alone

The sudden devastation of a spinal cord injury turns lives completely upside down. Legal and financial worries should not compound this already traumatic situation. By understanding your rights and seeking dedicated professional representation, you can level the playing field and have strong advocates by your side.

You don’t have to handle this alone – our skilled disability rights attorneys can empower your ability to access critical resources and determine the path forward on your own terms.
