Baton Rouge Laminectomy Attorneys
When discs become herniated or otherwise seriously damaged during a catastrophic accident, thereby causing pressure to be applied to nerves in the spinal column, some people can only find relief by undergoing a laminectomy. Since the procedure is necessary to deal with the symptoms of an injury that was caused by another party, accident victims may be able to take legal action in order to pursue compensation for the procedure and any pain and suffering resulting from their injury. It is important to note that accident victims may still have a case against the party responsible for their accident even if the laminectomy was caused by the aggravation of an existing injury.
At the Cazayoux Ewing Law Firm, we understand just how overwhelming all of this probably is right now, and our legal team can help you take whatever legal action may be necessary to hold the responsible party or parties accountable for causing your accident. Once you reach out to our lawyers, we can help you determine who exactly may be held liable for your accident and what legal action you may be able to pursue against that party.
Determining Liability for the Circumstances
Though the kind of spinal injuries that necessitate this procedure are likely to be associated with either a car or truck accident, serious injuries to the spine can be caused by virtually any accidents. That being said, whoever caused you to sustain your spinal injury—even if the accident only aggravated an existing problem—may, by extension, be held liable for any surgical procedure or any other care you need to make a recovery, including a laminectomy. More likely than not, we will be dealing with an insurance company that will represent the responsible party instead of the person, company, or whoever else may have been responsible for the accident.
Pursuing Compensation with a Laminectomy Claim
After we identify the party that bears ultimate responsibility for your catastrophic accident, our legal team can then begin to develop a legal strategy that we can use to pursue compensation for the costs of this procedure, along with any pain and suffering that comes to be associated with it. Though the particulars of every claim will be unique, most claims of this nature can be used to seek compensation for the following:
- The cost of any medical and rehabilitative care associated with the laminectomy
- The pain and suffering that will come to be associated with the procedure
- Any income that you cannot earn while you are recovering
Though you are sure to be dealing with a lot right now, it will be in your best interests to begin working through the legal process as early on after you know about or undergo the laminectomy.
