Paralysis Injury Representation
Experienced & Dedicated Personal Injury Lawyers
Becoming paralyzed is worse than any other injury except for those involving death. Nothing can reduce one’s ability to enjoy life more than being unable to perform basic tasks such as exercising, walking with one’s family, or enjoying outdoor activities. Unfortunately, those paralyzed due to the negligence of another will never enjoy such activities again. Nothing will ever cure the damage of such loss. Financial compensation, however, can reimburse the victim for lost income, future lost wages, past and future medical expenses, as well as pain and suffering. Our Austin, Texas personal injury lawyers represent those who have become paralyzed through no fault of their own. Contact us today to speak with an attorney.

There are a number of accident types which lead to paralysis. These include car wrecks, motorcycle accidents, injuries sustained in a trucking accident, or if one was hit as a pedestrian. One injured by such incidents may be entitled to financial compensation if the accident occurred due to another’s fault. Hiring the right attorney to assist you in such matters can be crucial.
Texas injury cases which result in paralysis can be filed in state or federal court. If the injured person was less at fault than the accused person, then compensation can be awarded. The first step to initiating a lawsuit is to file a petition in court. If settlement cannot be reached, then further litigation steps will be necessary. At trial, it will be necessary to prove the amount of damages to which one is entitled. Proving such damages will involve testimony from medical experts regarding injuries, past medical care, and required future care.
It may also be necessary to obtain testimony from vocational and economic experts on issues related to lost wages, lost future earning potential, as well as the economic impact that the situation may have on loved ones.
At the conclusion of trial, the case will be given to the jury for a decision. It is crucial that you retain a lawyer who is not only familiar with this process, but who specializes in it. Dan Christensen is an Austin area injury attorney assisting those who have been paralyzed due to no fault of their own. Once retained, we will immediately contact insurance companies so that they will deal with us directly. We have standing relationships with the types of experts necessary to prove medical and economic damages. We will leverage these relationships so that a demand letter may be sent to the insurers as soon as reasonably possible. If settlement cannot be reached, then we will file your petition with the court and proceed to litigation. We will initiate discovery (the process by which information is gained from the other side in litigation) to obtain proof of liability as well as any evidence which the defense intends to use on its behalf. Dan will ensure that you are prepared for this process, that you know what to expect as the case moves forward, and that your interests are protected.
