Spinal Injury Lawyer

Free Consultation

A spinal injury victim's empty wheel chair in a lawyer's office.It’s estimated that nearly half a billion Americans experience spinal injuries every single year. Unfortunately, more often than not, those injuries go untreated until it’s too late.

Millions of Americans don’t realize they’ve experienced a life-changing injury until subtle aches transform into lasting, chronic pain. On top of that, they’re often left to foot the bill when another company, or individual, is to blame.

In more serious cases, a traumatic spinal injury can immediately change your day-to-day. A significant spinal injury may leave you owing thousands of dollars for sudden medical expenses, life-saving care, or ongoing physical therapy.

Worst of all, it may force you to miss weeks of work or even quit your job, causing you to struggle to find a way to pay back what you owe.

In any situation, the right spinal injury lawyer can make all the difference. It’s important to find an attorney who has the experience and legal knowledge needed to fight for all of the compensation to which you may be entitled.

Ali Awad, the CEO Lawyer, and his legal team will fight for your right to seek compensation from all at-fault parties involved. Schedule a 100% free, no-obligation case review today using the adjacent contact form to learn more about the damages you could be owed.

What Does a Spinal Injury Attorney Do?

A spinal injury attorney has experience beyond general personal injury law, giving them the ability to work with cases that often involve costly damages and complex medical or legal considerations.

One primary area that spinal cord injury attorneys can provide guidance on is within their ability to anticipate the severity of their client’s injury and the totality of medical expenses they will incur.

In basic terms, they need to be able to offer their clients a more granular understanding of how their specific spinal cord injury will affect them on a medical and financial level.

Similarly, for the plaintiff, a spinal cord injury claim is sure to differ from an ordinary personal injury case. These cases can often be settled out of court with an insurance company, but they benefit from an attorney who can estimate the full value of damages.

A less experienced attorney may struggle to understand how your injury affects you on a daily basis — or how it can affect you in the years to come. They may miss opportunities to identify negligent parties or fail to negotiate for the compensation to which you may be entitled.

The best attorneys can negotiate firmly with insurers for the full value of available benefits. They conduct thorough investigations to identify any instances of negligence, then review relevant medical records and treatments to determine the severity of your injury’s total damages.

Why Should I Find a Spinal Injury Attorney?

If you’ve experienced a spinal cord injury, you’ll likely find yourself dealing with extreme pain or even limited mobility. You may even be fighting for your life with around-the-clock medical needs.

Let us fight for you in court and at the negotiation table.

No matter the cause, every spinal injury is going to be life-changing. That’s why it’s important to entrust your case with an experienced team like the experts at CEO Lawyer.

Our spinal injury attorneys understand how to secure all of the needed compensation for those affected by a serious injury.

For example, they understand how the effects on a defendant’s motor and sensory function are a key element in securing appropriate compensation. They know how to fight for those affected by paralysis, paraplegia, paresis, quadriplegia, and everything in between.

When you work with our attorneys, you will also be provided with comprehensive case management to help make the entire claims process easier for you and your family.

The CEO Lawyer Personal Injury Law Firm will help you secure all the needed care from specialists and rehabilitative experts.

We also make efforts to come to you or to accommodate your medical needs when it comes to appearing at hearings, mediation, negotiations, or other important meetings.

Rest assured that you won’t have to put yourself in an uncomfortable position, and you can attain peace of mind knowing we are working around the clock to help you return to as normal of a life as possible.

Should I Represent Myself in a Spinal Injury Case?

With every spinal cord injury claim, a thorough investigation must be conducted.

In order to prove that another party is liable for your injuries, you’ll need to organize and track a wide range of medical records, provide detailed accounts and proof of any and every circumstance where negligence could have occurred, and consult with licensed medical experts.

Beyond that, you’ll have to deal with the defendant. In cases like these, where damages are high, the defendant is likely going to come at you with full force, looping in aggressive insurance companies, attorneys, and teams.

They will do everything in their power to ensure that they can pay as little money as possible towards your claim. In short, if you try to fight for your claim alone, you’re likely to face an uphill battle against a team with plentiful resources.

The best way to increase your chances of obtaining as large of a settlement as possible is to put your own attorney team at your back. They will have the resources, prior experience, and legal knowledge to assert your legal rights to seek all available compensation.

Finding a team that will defend your rights at all costs is paramount, especially when you’re already dealing with a life-threatening injury.

What Are the Main Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries?

Every year, four to five million Americans suffer from spinal cord injuries. Injuries to the cervical spine (i.e., the neck) or the lumbar spine (i.e., the back) can cause lasting damage and ongoing or subsequent injuries.

More often than not, motor vehicle accidents and falls are the leading cause of severe spinal cord injuries. On top of that, other situations like acts of violence or common sports and recreational injuries can impart permanent damage to your spine.

Workplace injuries are also a common cause of spinal cord damage, especially in high-risk industries like construction, mining, or agriculture.

How Do I Know If I’ve Experienced a Serious Spinal Cord Injury?

For some, you may be able to tell immediately upon impact if you’ve experienced a serious spinal injury. For others, adrenaline can delay the initial onset of pain, numbness, or tingling, which can all signal a more serious injury.

Further, some nerve and spine injuries generate swelling that can lead to cumulative nerve damage over time. The risk of progressive damage is a primary reason to receive a full medical evaluation after any car accident or other significant trauma event.

Insurers may even try to deny coverage in part for medical damages they deem to be the fault of the injury victim as a result of their delay in receiving care.

What Are Common Symptoms of a Spinal Cord Injury?

Some of the most common symptoms of a severe spinal injury include the following:

  • Numbness across your fingers or toes
  • Tingling in your hands, fingers, feet, or toes
  • Loss of power or control over your bowels or bladder
  • Pain in the top of your spine
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Weakness in your arms or legs
  • Decreased sensation in your arms or legs

While these are just some of the most common symptoms one might experience upon impact, there is a suite of different red flags for spinal cord injuries that may develop later. These include lumps along the spine, difficulty walking, or a change in gait.

Similarly, sustained pressure in your neck, head, or back can also signal a larger injury. Other signs include headaches, bedsores, chronic muscle pain, frequent infections, or even pneumonia.

What Should I Do if I Think I’ve Experienced a Serious Spinal Cord Injury?

If you’ve been involved in an accident, seek medical care immediately. No matter how small your symptoms may seem, there is no way to know whether you’ve experienced a serious injury until you’ve met with a medical practitioner.

Moreover, it’s important to go to a hospital immediately after any encounter that may lead to a spinal injury claim, as you will need to provide detailed medical records to build your case.

Any time you’ve suffered an injury in an accident, you’ll want to ensure you’ve kept detailed contact information for any witnesses involved. Additionally, be sure to file a police or accident report and request a copy.

If possible, always take pictures of the scene where the accident occurred.

When seeking a diagnosis, explain your symptoms as well as the likely cause of your injuries to your doctor. They may require X-rays, MRIs, or even a CT scan to tell how extreme your injury has been.

Consent to all testing that your doctor needs to evaluate the full extent of your injury. Further, retain any and all documentation, including medical discharge papers, radiology reports, lab reports, and all receipts.

If your medical team finds that your injury has, in fact, affected your spine, the next thing to do is to reach out to a skilled spinal injury attorney. In fact, working with the CEO Lawyer legal team can enable you to find specialized treatment for your injury at no up-front cost.

Reach out to our team the moment you find you are seriously hurt, and we will step in to provide resources that can reduce your stress while providing the critical care you need.

What Kinds of Cases Does a Spinal Injury Attorney Usually Take?

While there is a wide range of situations that may warrant a spinal injury claim, the most common include the following:

  • Car Accidents
  • Someone Caused You Intentional Harm
  • Harm Caused by Negligence
  • Harm Caused by a Faulty Product
  • Harm Caused by a Negligent Doctor
  • Injuries Incurred on a Business’s Property

In any of these situations, you may be owed compensation for all of your damages.

That said, it’s important to understand that every legal case is different. Results cannot be guaranteed, but seeking compensation from all potentially liable parties is your best bet to be able to recover your damages.

At the CEO Lawyer Personal Injury Law Firm, we’re always happy to go over every detail in every possible case with you during your free case evaluation. If you’re unsure whether your situation warrants a valid spinal injury claim, don’t hesitate to reach out for a consultation today.

How Much Can I Expect to Win in A Spinal Injury Case?

If you’ve been involved in a serious spinal injury, you’re likely facing a mountain of medical expenses. Our experienced spinal injury attorneys know that these expenses are just the beginning.

For those who have incurred a disability from a life-changing spinal injury, every day marks another expense they’ll need to prepare for.

All too often, survivors face an uphill battle as they fight to regain their independence. They may need to change careers, fight for fair compensation from their current employer or leave their former role altogether.

After that, they could face discrimination or require ongoing medical attention — all of which will create damages that need to be secured through one or more one-time claims.

Once you’ve agreed to a settlement with an insurer, you will be unable to request more benefits for unexpected future costs in nearly all cases.

What Compensation Can I Expect From a Spinal Injury Case?

If you’ve been affected by a serious spinal injury, you can expect various forms of compensation. These may include compensation covering:

  • Past, present, and future medical expenses
  • Custom medical equipment or walkers, wheelchairs, or crutches
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Future physical therapy or rehabilitation
  • Changes to your home or vehicle
  • Current or future nursing care

Choosing the right spinal injury lawyer today can mean the difference between securing compensation for what’s happened — and what’s to come.

What Should I Look For When Selecting a Spinal Injury Lawyer?

When it comes time to select the right spinal injury attorney, it’s absolutely paramount to take the process seriously.

As discussed, these kinds of injuries can lead to an extremely high volume of damages, so if someone else is responsible, you have a strong motivation to make sure they’re held liable for all of your related expenses.

In these kinds of cases, it’s often not enough to select a general personal injury lawyer. Instead, you’ll want to find a specialized spinal injury attorney with a strong knowledge of the medical industry and a history of winning cases like these.

The right attorney will have the vocabulary to understand the specifics of your injury and prognosis.

They should be able to point to your recorded documentation of the symptoms you have suffered from and work with medical consulting experts to assert that all past and future care you’re requesting damages for was both reasonable and necessary for treating your injury.

Many spinal cord injury claims can end up leaving out requests for damages that would otherwise be on the table.

The CEO Lawyer and his personal injury team will make every possible effort to ensure that your damages are accurately calculated, projected into the future, and account for every bit of financial and personal hardship you have suffered through.

Help Negotiating with Insurance Carriers

To quickly resolve matters following an accident, insurance companies will offer you less than you deserve in compensation for your injuries. Many victims feel pressured to accept these offers as the bills begin to pile up, but that is rarely a good idea. The insurance company is looking to protect its bottom line; and will offer injured victims less than they deserve. An experienced personal injury attorney understands how to negotiate with the insurance company and can look out for your best interests by getting you the compensation you deserve after an injury. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, it is important to avoid negotiating or providing recorded statements to the insurance company without first seeking help from a qualified personal injury attorney.
