Causes of Paralysis
Paralysis is a condition that impacts a person’s ability to move some or all parts of their body. It may be caused by a brain injury, spinal cord injury, or neurological condition. Common causes of injuries that result in paralysis include:
Can I Get Compensation if My Actions Contributed to the Accident That Caused My Paralysis?
Often, defendants will try to avoid liability for the consequences of their negligence by blaming their victim for their injury. Even if you think that you may have contributed to the accident that resulted in your paralysis, you may still be entitled to financial compensation. In Washington state, recovery of damages is based on contributory fault. That means that any fault attributed to you will only proportionately diminish the amount of damages awarded to you. For example, if you were found to be 10% at fault for your injury and you were awarded $100,000 in damages, you would receive $90,000. In Washington, contributory fault does not bar you from recovering damages. An experienced Redmond paralysis lawyer from Malcolm Law has the resources and the legal knowledge to defend your interests and reduce the proportion of fault attributed to you.
How Long Do I Have to File a Paralysis Claim in Redmond, WA?
