NYC Paralysis Injury Lawyers
Major injuries can be devastating for the victim as well as his/her family. Furthermore, when paralysis results from a severe injury, the victim and his/her family must be prepared to make substantial adjustments to their daily lives, learning new routines and finding new ways to adapt to partial or permanent paralysis. If you or a loved one suffered paralysis as a result of the reckless or negligent actions of another party (individual, corporation, or another entity), the NYC paralysis injury lawyers at Hoffmaier & Hoffmaier can help.
With decades of experience helping clients face complex legal issues, our personal injury attorneys will diligently fight for justice and financial compensation for incurred damages related to the catastrophic injury.
How an NYC Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help
When a person is left paralyzed from an accident, it is important to look past short-term goals. Any settlement or verdict needs to address the long-term needs of the victim, making sure that he/she gets the medical help, therapy, living expenses, and other arrangements that he/she needs. At Hoffmaier & Hoffmaier, we are spinal injury experts who fully understand the range of amenities and medical expenses that a paralysis victim may require, both immediately following an accident and years down the road.
By working with Hoffmaier & Hoffmaier, we can 100% assure the highest importance given to your case. Our immediate mission is for you to get the best treatment quickly so that you can better recover and adapt to your new circumstances without added financial stresses. We will help prepare the documentation, investigate the circumstances of the accident to prove fault in courts, and develop an accurate and reasonable settlement. Our specialty practice areas include spinal injuries resulting from:
- Car accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Premises liability
- Slip and fall accidents
- Workplace accidents
Establishing Fault in the Negligent Party
Whether a driver was texting and not paying attention to the road, a doctor’s negligence led to the spinal injury, or a landlord’s negligence regarding the safety of his/her premises caused you to slip and fall, it is important to establish who is at fault for your injuries. By proving that another party (or a business or corporation) caused your paralysis, your personal injury lawyer can argue that you shouldn’t have to bear the massive weight of the necessary medical expenses.
Through intensive investigation into the circumstances of the accident, diligent documentation collection (including medical records, doctor’s opinions, witness testimonies, third-party expert opinion, etc), and personal, one-on-one communication with you and your family, our goal is to prove to the courts that:
- The other party owes a legal duty to help cover medical expenses, physical therapy, change of lifestyle expenses, loss of income from work, loss of future earning capacity, and pain and suffering.
- The other party was reckless and/or negligent in his/her actions (applies to businesses and corporations as well).
- The other party’s reckless and/or negligent actions directly resulted in your paralysis.
