- Car accidents

Investigating The Cause Of A Spinal Cord Accident
It’s not uncommon for an insurance company to try to blame a victim for their injury in order to reduce the amount they pay out in claims and settlements. Insurers may argue that you were responsible for the accident that injured you, or failed to do everything possible to avoid the accident.
That’s why it’s essential to investigate the cause of accidents that lead to spinal cord injuries. This process establishes liability on the part of the person or persons responsible for causing your injuries.
At Anderson Trial Lawyers, our attorneys work with safety experts, design engineers, medical experts, toxicologists, and accident reconstruction experts to build cases that expose the safety violations and negligence that led to your injury. We provide evidence that undermines claims from the expert witnesses of insurance companies, who will attempt to shift blame in order to avoid compensating an injured person.
Determining The Financial Impact Of A Spinal Cord Injury
Insurance companies may also try to question or minimize the costs associated with your spinal cord injury in an effort to pay less money in claims or settlements. If left unchallenged, your compensation can be much less than what you need to keep up with the medical expenses and other costs arising from your injury.
The team at Anderson Trial Lawyers prepares cost-data analysis reports to get you fair compensation. Working from medical cost data collected by HMOs and the insurance industry, we quantify the costs associated with your surgeries, physical therapy, nursing care, medical equipment, lost wages, and loss in quality of life.
Our office also consults with medical economists and life care planners who can verify and document the scope and nature of a client’s injuries. This thorough documentation stands as sound offense against testimony from insurance companies’ expert witnesses.
