Personal Injury Attorneys Serving Clients Throughout Ohio
Spinal Cord Injuries

Columbus Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers

Providing Compassionate Representation for Clients Throughout Ohio

Few injuries are as devastating as spinal cord injuries. When the spinal cord suffers damage, it can cause immense pain, permanent nerve damage, and, in the most severe cases, paralysis. Victims’ lives will often never be the same. The cost of treating these injuries can easily exceed hundreds of thousands—if not millions—of dollars, leaving victims and their families grappling with serious financial hardships in the wake of the accident. When the victim is unable to return to work, either during his or her recovery period or permanently due to a new disability, it can add even greater challenges to an already difficult situation.

At Ross, Midian & Breitmayer, LLC, we understand just how serious and life-altering a spinal cord injury can be. We also know that you do not have to face these new challenges on your own. If your spinal cord injury was the result of someone else’s negligent or wrongful behavior, you have the right to file a personal injury claim and seek compensation for your medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering. Our Columbus spinal cord injury lawyers can help.

To learn more, contact us online or call (614) 450-2223 and request a free consultation. We are available 24/7.

Who Is Eligible to File a Spinal Cord Injury Claim?

As in any other personal injury claim, in order to bring a catastrophic injury claim for a spinal cord injury against another person or party, you will need to establish that they were liable for your injury. In other words, you need to show that you sustained the injury because of the actions (or inactions) of another party.

In order to be eligible to file a spinal cord injury claim in Columbus, Ohio, you need to prove all of the following elements:

  • Another party owed you a duty of reasonable care
  • The other party failed to uphold this duty of reasonable care
  • As a result of this failure, you were injured
  • Your injury led to measurable damages

For example, if you were injured in a car accident caused by a distracted driver, you can establish that the other driver failed to uphold his duty of reasonable care to you, which all motorists are presumed to owe to others on the road, by acting negligently. Driving while distracted is a form of negligence. If you sustained a spinal cord injury after being rear-ended by the distracted driver and needed emergency medical treatment, ongoing rehabilitative care, and missed months of work during your recovery, you can take action against the distracted driver and file a claim with his auto insurance provider.

This is just one example of when you may be eligible to bring a spinal cord injury claim; to learn whether you have grounds for a case, contact Ross, Midian & Breitmayer, LLC and request a complimentary case evaluation. One of our attorneys will be directly involved in your case from the moment you call until the day your case is resolved.

When Does Negligence Cause Spinal Cord Injuries?

The aforementioned example is one common instance in which negligence can lead to serious injuries, such as spinal cord injuries. But there are many other common causes of spinal cord injuries that can be attributed to someone else’s negligence.

Common causes of spinal cord injuries include:

Whenever another party—be it an individual person, a manufacturer, a business, or some other entity—is negligent, careless, or reckless, the injured individual and/or their family members can take legal action to hold the liable party accountable.
