Maximize Spine Injury Compensation

File a Legal Claim Against the Party Responsible for Your Spine Injury

Spinal cord injuries are often life changing. They can cause paralysis and other serious physical harm as well as severe emotional trauma as injury victims recognize that their lives will never be the same. Medical costs for these catastrophic injuries are incredibly high, and ongoing care may be necessary for the rest of a person’s life.

Spine injuries are not only physically and mentally damaging, but they can also devastate the finances and financial security of the victim and their family. If you have suffered a spinal cord injury caused by the negligence of another party, we may be able to help you get compensation to pay for the costs of your treatment.

As a victim of negligence, you have the right to seek money for medical care and other damages through a claim against the at-fault party’s insurance provider or in a lawsuit if a fair insurance settlement is not forthcoming. Our experienced back and spine injury lawyer can help you.

Our spinal cord injury lawyer in Reno can help you pursue a personal injury claim against the party who caused your accident. We will support you, help protect your rights, and fight for fair compensation.

How spinal cord injuries happen

Spinal cord injuries can happen in many different ways. They are typically caused by blows to the spine or an object penetrating or severing the spinal cord. The ligaments, discs, and vertebrae of the spine can be injured, as well as the spinal cord itself.

The most common causes of spine injuries include the following:

  • Auto and motorcycle accidents: These account for half of new injury cases annually.
  • Falls: For seniors, falls are the most common reason for spinal cord injuries.
  • Sports-related accidents: Approximately 1 in 10 spine injuries are due to high-impact sports and diving accidents.
  • Violent acts: Knife and gunshot wounds are responsible for about 12 percent of spinal cord injuries.

Following an accident in which you injure your spine, you could be left paraplegic, with no use of your lower body. In worse cases, you could be a person with tetraplegia (also called quadriplegic), which means that your entire body, from the neck down, is paralyzed.

With the help of a respected and experienced spine injury lawyer from our law firm, you could get considerable compensation that will reduce the financial stress of your injuries and help you get your life back on track.

We are not afraid to go against insurance companies.

Spinal cord injury lawyer FAQs

The following section addresses some of the common questions we receive from people considering a lawsuit.

Can I sue if my loved one died following a spinal cord injury?

Yes, you can. If you tragically lost a family member to a spine injury caused by the negligence of another party, you may be able to collect compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit. However, you must be an eligible survivor of the person who died or the personal representative of their estate to file for wrongful death.

How much do spinal cord injury attorneys charge?

How much we charge you will depend upon your case. However, you will not pay any upfront fees. Our spinal cord injury attorneys work on a contingency agreement basis, meaning we get paid a percentage of the compensation we win for you.

How long do I have to file a lawsuit?

The statute of limitations in Nevada for filing a personal injury claim is two years from the accident date or date on which you discovered you were hurt. If you miss the deadline, you may lose your right to file and hold the party who caused your injuries accountable.
