A spinal cord injury can be life-changing, and the financial fallout can be devastating. If you have suffered a spinal cord injury due to a negligent doctor and need help with your case, get in touch with an experienced personal injury attorney today. Spinal cord injuries are often caused by dangerous medical malpractice, but they can also occur during sports or other activities that do not involve medical treatment. The type of treatment you receive after suffering a spinal cord injury can be the difference between being able to walk again or being permanently paralyzed. When you suffer an SCI, it is essential to understand what damages you may be entitled to if someone else’s negligence caused your injury.

The first step is determining whether you are entitled to compensation for your injuries. The law does not always allow victims of medical malpractice to recover damages because they may have been partly responsible for their injuries. For example, if you were driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs when you were injured, the court may rule that you are partially at fault for causing your injuries and, thus, not entitled to compensation.

Contact a lawyer as soon as possible

The best way to prove the negligence of a doctor is by getting an experienced lawyer involved in your case right away. Many people who have suffered a spinal cord injury caused by a negligent doctor do not know they have legal rights. Contacting an attorney immediately is essential to protect your interests and ensure your case is handled properly. In some cases, there are time limits on when you can file a claim against the negligent party — so it’s best not to delay in seeking legal help if this concerns you.

Reach out to the medical board

Contact that state’s medical board and find out whether any complaints were filed against this doctor or hospital in the past. If so, see if those complaints had any merit or if they were dismissed by the board (or never even investigated). If there were complaints filed against them in the past and these complaints were dismissed or never investigated by the board, this could be another piece of evidence you can use in court to show that there was negligence on behalf of these doctors or hospitals, which resulted in your loved one’s death (or paralysis).

Get copies of all medical records related to your injury

You’ll want to review them carefully and ensure they’re complete — including notes from any hospital staff that treated you after the incident and before leaving the ER. If gaps in the record or essential information don’t appear until later, ask for more copies or get help from an attorney. Write down everything that happened — even if it seems minor at first. Don’t trust your memory; write down what happened as soon as possible after the incident so that everything is fresh in your mind. If someone else witnessed the event and can back up your story, ask them if they’d be willing to write down their account of events.
