Identifying the Liable Party in Your Spinal Cord Injury Case
Often, our lawyers find their cases are more complicated than a client may have initially thought. For example, many cases involve multiple parties. In other cases, a party that is legally liable for a client’s damages may not be the party that caused the incident. Your lawyer can identify the party or parties involved in your case and liable for your damages. If multiple parties are involved, your lawyer can hold each of them accountable.
Your Lawyer Can Gather Evidence for You
To establish the other party’s liability and your damages, your lawyer will need evidence. Evidence of liability in your case could be witness cell phone photos, security camera and dashcam footage, or other evidence. Evidence or proof of your damages could be your bills and receipts. Your lawyer can also gather corroborating evidence which will be invaluable for your case. Such evidence can be testimony from a medical expert or another kind of expert.

Your Westbury Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer Can Establish the Value of Your Case
It is difficult to identify intangible damages, like physical damages, but it’s even more difficult to attribute monetary values to those damages. It’s especially difficult to communicate these values to an insurance company.
However, your lawyer has various methods for valuating your intangible damages and communicating their value to the insurer. These services can help to establish your damages and the value of your case with the insurer.
Resolving Your Case
After your spinal cord injury lawyer has prepared your case, your lawyer can present it to the other party and their insurer. Then, your attorney can attempt negotiations with the insurer. Your lawyer can push for an appropriate settlement, even if it means threatening to sue the insurer.
If negotiations don’t resolve your case, your attorney can sue and take your case to court. There, your lawyer can push hard for an appropriate verdict from a judge.
