Spinal Injuries

Our attorneys stand up for your rights

When a person is in an accident involving excessive force or impact, they sometimes suffer an injury to the spine. Unlike other injuries that heal over time, many spinal cord injuries can permanently affect a person's ability to live the life they enjoyed before their accident.

Knowing what to do after a spinal cord injury to yourself or a loved one in California's East Bay can be overwhelming. Getting emergency medical care obviously needs to be your first priority. But then what? What should you do? What are your rights?

Understanding the serious nature of spinal injuries

The spinal cord houses the main nervous system of the entire human body. If this cord is bruised or severed in any way, the victim could lose their feeling or mobility below the area of injury. Bruising of the spinal cord could heal over time, causing temporary partial paralysis or temporary total paralysis.

Extreme damage to the spinal cord could result in permanent paralysis. The worst case is the complete severing of the spinal cord, which causes permanent total paralysis below the injured area. The most common types of permanent paralysis include:

  • Paraplegia - Paralysis below the waist.
  • Quadriplegia - Paralysis below the neck.

The medical care for such an injury can be extremely expensive. A victim will need ongoing medical assistance and care. If you or a loved one has been injured in this way, do not hesitate to hire a skilled personal injury attorney in Walnut Creek.

You might think you don't need a lawyer if you or a loved one sustained a serious injury in an accident caused by someone else's reckless behavior or negligent actions. All you have to do is report your accident to the police and insurance companies will take care of everything.

Don't be so sure. In most cases, insurance companies only care about one thing - paying injury victims as little as they possibly can. And that's especially true after a spinal cord injury accident. That's because the stakes are so high. The total value of your damages could be in the hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars. That's why you need our law firm on your side, demanding the financial compensation you rightfully deserve.
