How Our Firm Can Help
The best decision a spinal cord injury victim and/or his or her family can make is seeking legal advice from an experienced personal injury lawyer. Working with an attorney can help prevent further physical or financial suffering in the aftermath of the accident. With access to a professional lawyer who is willing to fight for you, you have a far better chance of recovering the financial compensation you may be rightfully entitled to receive.
Spinal cord injuries typically result in extensive medical treatment, ongoing rehabilitative care, and, sometimes, lifelong in-home care. Additionally, victims are often unable to return to their previous jobs and, in some cases, may not be able to work at all. This adds additional financial challenges on individuals and families already facing a very difficult situation. However, an attorney can help you determine if you are entitled to financial compensation for these and other damages.
In every case, there are certain criteria that must be met in order for the plaintiff (the person filing the claim) to have grounds for a claim and to be successful. Your attorney can help you establish that someone else was negligent and that this was the direct cause of your injuries and resulting damages.
At Bral & Associates, we are here to assist you throughout the process and will fight to get the compensation you deserve as a result of suffering any type of spinal cord injury, including:
- Slipped discs
- Herniated discs
We have successfully represented victims of car
, and truck accidents
, as well as individuals who suffered serious spinal cord injuries due to slip and fall accidents
and other harmful events. We have the resources, experience, and track record of success you need on your side.
What Is the Statute of Limitations on Spinal Cord Injury Claims in California?
Like any other type of personal injury claim, the state of California places a time limit on how long you have to file a claim for damages. Generally speaking, you only have two years from the date of the injury to bring your claim; failure to file a claim within this time period will almost always result in the court barring you from seeking damages.
As your legal team, we will fight for your rights and work tirelessly to recover the compensation you need to cover your medical bills, lost wages, and other economic and non-economic damages. We can also work to recover punitive damages (in some cases) in order to hold the at-fault person/party responsible for the egregious negligence that caused your injuries.
Why You Should Avoid Talking to the Insurance Company on Your Own
When someone talks to an insurance company shortly after an accident, they may be tempted to settle for the first offer. This is understandable, as you are likely concerned about how you are going to pay for your massive and mounting medical bills. However, insurance companies hardly ever offer the total compensation you will need now and in the future—and, once you settle, you cannot get more money if the settlement deal does not cover all your financial troubles.
Our Los Angeles spinal cord injury attorneys will find out the total amount of damages you will need, such as future expenses for medical bills, therapies, lost wages, and much more. From there, we will build a comprehensive case and negotiate aggressively with the insurance company to recover the full compensation you are owed. If necessary, we are ready to take your case to trial.
