Dallas Spinal Injury Lawyer
Have you been involved in an accident and suffered serious spinal damage? If so, you may be able to hold the person or persons who are responsible for causing your injuries accountable for their actions when you enlist the services of a spinal injury lawyer in Dallas.
Spinal cord damage can be relatively minor or it can be so severe that you end up being paralyzed from your injuries. Having to take time off of work, or learning that you’ll no longer be able to work at all, can result in significant financial anxiety that can make your recovery all the more difficult.
Fortunately, our experienced team at Crain Lewis Brogdon, LLP is ready to do whatever it takes to obtain the compensation you deserve. Your Dallas spinal injury lawyer will work rigorously to investigate who is liable for the cause of your accident and review your damages to determine the value of your claim so that you can get the most out of your injury claim.
Accidents That Can Cause Spine Damage
Almost any kind of serious accident can cause severe spinal damage, some with more frequency than others. Some of the most commonly seen accidents that result in spine injuries include:
- Motor vehicle wrecks
- Defective products
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Hydrofracking accidents
- Work injuries
- Dog attacks
Injuries of this nature can be so catastrophic that you may require ‘round-the-clock healthcare for the rest of your life. You might be unable to walk, eat, breathe on your own, use the bathroom without assistance, or otherwise care for yourself. For this reason, it is critical that whoever is culpable for the cause of your injuries be compelled to repay you for the harm they’ve caused.
How Long You Have to File Your Injury Claim in Dallas
The statute of limitations refers to the amount of time you have to file your claim within the Texas court system. For accidents that cause spinal damage, you will have two years from the date that the accident happened to file your claim. The time can go quickly, though, despite the fact that two years seems like plenty of time to file.
Your spinal injury attorney will need time to gather the evidence needed to support your Dallas case, which might include police reports, medical documentation of your spine injury, video footage, witness statements, safety inspection reports, photographic evidence, and expert testimony, to name a few.
This evidence should be able to demonstrate that the person or persons we name as defendants in your case are, in fact, liable for your damages. It is of utmost importance that you file your claim before the statute of limitations expires. If time runs out, the Texas courts will almost always dismiss your case if you attempt to file at a later date.
Seek Maximum Recovery for Your Losses
In addition to holding the at-fault party accountable for their negligent actions, our purpose in pursuing your civil lawsuit is to obtain full compensation for every single damage you’ve endured. Though you may think you have an idea of how much your case is worth, it’s very possible that your damages amount to much more than you think.
We’ll review the impact of your pain and suffering, lost wages, medical expenses, loss of companionship and love, inconvenience, property damages, loss of enjoyment of life, damage to your earning capacity, emotional distress, loss of household services, and the impact of scarring or disfigurement, among other losses, when calculating the value of your claim.
There is also the possibility that the judge will award you exemplary, or punitive, damages. Such an award will increase the amount of your final award; however, these damages are only awarded when the judge finds the actions of the defendant to be malicious or intentional and wants to punish them for their poor behavior and send a message that such actions are intolerable.
