Severe injuries to the spine are most often caused in auto accidents, motorcycle accidents, and other traffic related accidents. Damages and compensation for these spine injury accidents occurring in motor vehicle collisions are handled by our California personal injury attorneys under California negligence, strict liability, and third party liability laws. Serious spinal cord injuries suffered in car accidents are often the result of defective products and not just negligent drivers. Sometimes a severe spinal cord injury occurs due to a defective seatbelt, defective tires causing blowout and rollover, a defective airbag, or other products liability issues. When a serious spinal cord injury occurs, our California personal injury lawyers search for every possible element of fault, negligence, and liability, and source of compensation for our seriously injured client who suffers partial paralysis, nerve damage, total paralysis, paraplegia or quadriplegia tetraplegia.
Sources of monetary compensation available to spinal cord accident victims vary with the circumstances of the spinal cord injury accident. In a work related spine injury under California Workers compensation laws, the injured worker is not entitled to a category of benefit known as “pain and suffering.” A California Workers Comp lawyer will explain to you how workers compensation is often an exclusive injury remedy for an on the job injury accident. The exception to this is when the work related spinal cord injury is due to the negligence of a third party (neither employer nor co-worker), possibly an outside contractor or defective product manufacturer.
