Whether they are caused by a motor vehicle accident, medical malpractice, or another type of incident, damages to the spinal cord can restrict a person’s ability to work, socialize, and pay for necessary medical care. An individual’s entire lives can be altered in the blink of an eye due to the negligence of someone else.

Though these realities are difficult to come to terms with, a compassionate Cobb County spinal cord injury lawyer could help injured persons and their families seek the compensation they deserve. Speaking to an experienced catastrophic attorney could be their first step in receiving money to recover from their injuries.

Cobb County Spinal Cord Injury Statute of Limitations

All states have specific deadlines that potential plaintiffs must follow when filing their claim; they are often called the statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for spinal cord injuries in Cobb County is two years from the date of the injury as found in Georgia Code § 9-3-33. There are, however, two exceptions:

  • If the defendant leaves the state after the date of the injury but before they receive legal documents
  • If the plaintiff is a minor or is not legally competent due to an intellectual disability or mental illness at the time the injury occurred

In the first scenario, the statute of limitations tolls or pauses until the defendant can be served with legal documents. In the second, the statute tolls until they turn 18 or until they are no longer incompetent. A knowledgable Cobb County spinal cord injury attorney could help potential plaintiffs determine if any of the legal exceptions apply in their case.

What Gives a Spinal Cord Injury Case Merit?

No matter how a spinal cord injury occurs, a legal claim may be merited if certain elements exist. A spinal cord injury lawyer in Cobb County must be able to prove or have the evidence to be able to prove to the jury that:

  • The defendant owed a duty to the injured individual
  • The defendant breached that duty either willfully or negligently
  • The breach of duty caused the plaintiff’s injury
  • Because of their injury, the plaintiff suffered compensable damages

For instance, a driver owes a duty of care to other drivers on the road, a doctor owes a duty of care to their patients, and landowners owe a duty of care to those on the land. When any of these people shirk their duty, causing someone to suffer an injury, they could be found liable for the plaintiff’s injuries and have to pay for their damages. Each of these elements must be established to the jury, or else they cannot return a verdict in favor of the plaintiff.
