An injury to your spinal cord is undoubtedly serious. Because the spinal column plays a major role in physiological functioning, damage to it can cause debilitating injury and temporary or permanent immobilization.

Therefore, if you suffer an injury to your spine, you should take legal action against the liable party. A Gainesville spinal cord injury lawyer could help you seek compensation for the injuries you have experienced and consequent financial losses.

A dedicated traumatic injury attorney could stand by your side through the legal process and fight for your best interests. Damages a plaintiff in a personal injury lawsuit could seek to include both out-of-pocket expenses and subjective harms that compensate someone for emotional losses.

Common Causes of Neck or Spinal Cord Injuries

Damage to or severance of the spinal cord can result in permanent disability or paralysis. Generally, the closer a spinal injury occurs to the head, the larger the effect that it may have on the body. Spinal cord injuries usually occur when the spine suffers a traumatic blow or impact. Some common causes of spinal damage may include:

The cause of an injury could help an attorney identify who may be liable to pay damages. Therefore, someone who has experienced a spinal cord injury, should consult with a skilled Gainesville lawyer.

Through this consultation, an attorney could investigate a case and gain an understanding of which parties may be responsible. Regardless of whether these defendants will be approached for settlement negotiations or named in a lawsuit, an attorney could offer someone the guidance they need to seek compensation.

When to File Spine Injury Lawsuit in Gainesville

In general, the deadline to file a personal injury lawsuit stemming from spinal cord trauma is two years. The statute of limitations begins from the date of discovery of the injury or when the losses associated with this spinal damage are identified. Failure to meet this statutory deadline may result in the loss of opportunity to file a claim for compensation.

It is important to note that there are some exceptions to the statute of limitations. Claimants filing lawsuits for property damage have four years to bring their case. Plaintiffs who bring lawsuits for personal injury and property damage must follow the shorter limitations period. A spine damage attorney from Gainesville could work to ensure that an individual files their case on time.

Speak to a Gainesville Spinal Cord Injury Attorney

You should not suffer financially for harm inflicted by another party. Spinal cord injuries themselves and accompanying psychological issues are considerable hurdles to overcome in the wake of a catastrophic accident.

Whether you are hurt or a beloved family member, you know that the road ahead is not easy. Let a Gainesville spinal cord injury lawyer help. Contact our office to get started on your personal injury case today.
