Paraplegia is the impairment of motor and sensory function of the lower extremities. The trauma is usually sustained in the lumbar, thoracic or sacral areas of the spinal canal. There can be many causes for paraplegia, but we will address paraplegia from acute spinal cord injury and medical malpractice. Usually, paraplegia is caused by a head injury, spinal cord injury, a partially severed spinal cord, cauda equina syndrome, or nerve disease. Though it is possible to become paraplegic without an accident, it is more commonly a result of an injury to the spinal cord sustained in a work-related accident, motor vehicle accident, sports or recreational vehicle accidents, fall, an act of violence, or medical malpractice. In cases where at least a percentage of fault belong to another party, the paraplegic and/or family members are usually entitled to compensation.
If you or your loved one has become paraplegic as a result of another person or entity's actions or negligence, you could be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, medicine, treatment, attendant care, medical equipment, loss of consortium, loss of intimacy, loss of household services, and pain and suffering. A person experiencing paraplegia might benefit from occupational and physical therapy. This therapy can aid the patient to boost functioning and help him or her to be able to function with his or her restrictions.This Miami-Dade Paraplegia Attorney Perseveres on Behalf of Paralyzed Clients
If you or somebody you love has become paraplegic as a result of an unfortunate accident, Mr. Quackenbush will likely retain a “vocational rehabilitation expert.” This vocational expert meet with you and attempt to verify the extent of your injuries and what type of work you’ll likely be able to perform if you will be able to work in the future.
In Florida, this is significant because, when you are hurt due to the carelessness of another person, you should receive compensation for your lost wages, your pain and suffering, and your medical bills. Therefore, it will be crucial to determine what types of work you will be able to do, or what work you won’t be able to do so as to figure out your future expected financial damages in the form of lost wages because of the accident. This will permit Mr. Quackenbush to go to court and ask for a certain amount of damages because of your lack of ability to work or at least your inability to work at the same rate/degree.
The vocational rehabilitation expert likely will work with another expert (referred to as an “economist”) who will likely attempt to figure out a specific number that represents the amount of money you will likely lose in the future due to the accident. It is easy to figure out how much money you have lost in the past in regards to lost wages as a result of the accident. The economist will just look at your tax returns and attempt to come up with a number. It is not easy to predict the future. As such, it is the economist's job to attempt to derive a number that will adequately and fairly compensate you for the financial harm you will likely experience in the future (i.e., lost wages).
Mr. Quackenbush will likely also retain an expert called a “Life Care Planner.” This expert will attempt to predict the cost of your medical care into the future. Once more, it is easy to figure out your medical bills in the past. The future is harder to determine, and so the life care planner will attempt to predict the expected price of your medical treatment in the future. This price (as well as the number given by the vocational rehabilitation expert/economist), will be designed to adequately compensate you for your harm.Obtain Compensation With the Aid of a Strong South Florida Paraplegia Law Firm
