Our top-rated accident attorneys have decades of experience representing victims who have suffered paralysis in an accident. We have recovered around 300 hundred million dollars for our clients, and work on a contingency fee basis. We do not collect any money upfront unless we win a settlement or judgment in favor of our clients. Once we do win compensation for our clients, we take a percentage of the compensation. This percentage is communicated to the client prior to taking them on as a client. We always want to make sure that our clients are always well-informed, and are constantly kept in the loop regarding the circumstances of their accident claim.

What are the other types of paralysis?

 Other than paraplegia, there are several other types of paralysis. This includes:

  • Monoplegia: this affects only one part of the body. For example, a victim experiences paralysis to their one hand.
  • Hemiplegia: hemiplegia affects one side of the body, for example the left arm.
  • Tetraplegic: this occurs when the victim suffers paralysis at both their arms and legs.

Almost all types of paralysis need 24/7 medical care to make sure that the victim can perform the basic activities of their daily life. Our top-rated paralysis lawyers will assist you in recovering compensation for your injuries, along with any future medical attention and treatments you may need.

How much is my big rig accident case worth?

The worth of a big rig accident claim depends on the circumstances of the accident. No attorney will be able to provide you with a detailed specific amount of compensation you can receive without getting all the details about your accident. Our accident attorneys all offer free no risk consultations, where we will ask all the questions necessary related to your big rig accident to determine the compensation you could receive for your injuries.

How To Prove Liability for Your Paraplegic Lawsuit

Your top-rated personal injury attorney must have to prove elements of negligence and filing a legal claim against the negligent party. This can be proven by showing that:

  • The defendant had a duty to act in a reasonably safe manner
  • The defendant failed to act within that duty, and failed to act within a reasonably safe manner
  • The defendant caused the accident
  • The plaintiff now suffers extensive damages

When should I file my paraplegia lawsuit?

In California, you must file your claim within the statute of limitations time period that is applicable to your claim.

If the plaintiff failed their lawsuit too late, then they will lose their right to seek recovery for their costs.

In California, you have two years from the date of the accident to file your lawsuit. For more information, contact our paraplegia attorneys as soon as possible.
