Searching for All Sources of Compensation
A spinal cord injury affects everyone in your family. You are likely to need home modifications, special vehicles and other adaptive devices, personal assistance, and continuing medical treatment and therapy for the rest of your life. Attorney Mike Hancock will hire life care and medical care planners to document your needs now and in the future.
The person who caused the accident may not have enough insurance to pay for everything you will need. In this case, our lawyers will evaluate other sources of coverage, including:
- Your own uninsured and underinsured motorists coverage
- Other defendants who may have contributed to the accident or caused your injury to be more severe
Examples of other defendants may include a medical provider who made mistakes in treating you, an auto manufacturer that made an unsafe vehicle, a construction company that made an unsafe roadway, or a landscaping company that failed to trim roadside shrubs.
We will also negotiate with your medical insurance company to ensure that you end up with as much money as possible in your pocket after paying for medical bills. Without a lawyer’s assistance, much or all of your settlement may go to paying medical bills.
When you have suffered a catastrophic injury such as paralysis, you should not accept any insurance company settlement offer without speaking to an experienced attorney. Otherwise, you may not end up with enough money to meet your needs.
