Making A Full Claim For The Damages You Will Need Now And In The Future
Every personal injury claim has two parts. You will have to prove liability, or that the other party was responsible for your injuries. You will also have to prove your damages. When someone has suffered a spinal cord injury, proving damages can be complicated. You will likely require extensive modifications to your home. You may not be able to work, or are limited in the work you can do. Our law firm will enlist the services of experts, such as life-care planners and economists, to calculate the present and future costs of your injury.
Many times, when our clients hear what our experts have to say about the projected lifetime costs of their injuries, they are stunned. The lifetime costs of these types of serious injuries are usually much higher than expected. Our law firm will take every possible step to show insurance companies, and when necessary, judges and juries, the full financial impact of your loss.
We Are Determined To Make A Difference In Our Clients' Lives
Attorney Doug Carter takes a special interest in helping people with spinal injuries live the fullest possible lives. He is also a snow ski instructor and helps people with disabilities, including people who are paralyzed below the waist, take adaptive lessons and ski. This experience is both humbling and rewarding. It gives Doug, and our staff, a better perspective on how people with spinal injuries are able to move forward after a traumatic event.
