WHAT IS A “COMPLETE” SPINAL CORD INJURY?

A complete spinal cord injury is defined as the total loss of motor skill and function below the site of the injury. Victims of complete spinal cord injuries are unable to feel any physical sensation below that spot as well. By contrast, victims of partial (or “incomplete”) spinal cord injuries may still retain some feeling and movement capabilities below the injury site.

HOW IS A MEDICAL MALPRACTICE ATTORNEY PAID?

A medical malpractice attorney is paid on a contingency fee basis, which means that your lawyer is entitled to collect a certain predetermined percentage of your total settlement or jury award. If you don’t receive compensation, then you aren’t responsible for paying the legal fees associated with your case. Because medical malpractice cases are expensive to litigate, most personal injury lawyers won’t agree to take such a case unless there is a clear and defined instance (or instances) of malpractice that has occurred.

FAQs

WHAT IS THE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS IN CALIFORNIA?

To quote the statute of limitations for filing a medical malpractice claim in California directly: “Victims must file a claim within three years of the date of the injury, or within one year of discovering the injury, which ever comes first.” We encourage you to speak with our medical malpractice attorney team in the Santa Clarita area to discuss your case in detail.
