An estimated 291,000 people are living with a spinal cord injury in the United States today. Every year, nearly 18,000 new spinal cord injuries occur, not including those who pass away from their injuries. Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of spinal cord injuries, closely followed by fall accidents.
If you or your loved one has received a spinal cord injury due to another person’s negligence or recklessness, you may be entitled to compensation. Reaching out to an experienced personal injury lawyer is one of the best ways you can protect your legal claim.
Do Not Wait to Consult with a Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer
Recovering from a spinal cord injury is an intense and emotionally challenging process. You will probably take time to adapt to your new normal and think about what your life will look like after the rehabilitation process. Filing a personal injury lawsuit may be the last thing on your mind right, understandably.
However, if another person caused your spinal cord injury, it is important that you discuss your potential legal case with an attorney as soon as you can. You only have a limited amount of time to file a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent person or company before losing your right to do so.
Spinal cord injuries lawsuits are notoriously complicated, and your attorney will benefit from having as much time as possible to gather evidence in your case. Many of our clients are concerned about the cost of hiring an attorney, but at Griggs Injury Law, we do not charge our clients until we succeed in obtaining compensation on their behalf. We offer new clients a free initial consultation to learn more about us, and we can review their cases.
