Columbia Spinal Cord Injury Attorney
About Spinal Cord Injuries
A spinal cord injury is often extremely serious and can affect many different parts of the body including the arms, legs, bladder, bowls and sex organs. Spinal cord injuries typically involve nerve damage, blood vessel damage and tissue damage that cause:
- Loss of mobility
- Loss of sensation
- Difficulty breathing
Recovering from a spinal cord injury can take many months, and even require surgery; many people will have lasting disabilities such as paralysis. If you have been in an accident that resulted in spinal cord damage, contact a Columbia personal injury lawyer to find out if you are eligible for
personal injury compensation. When you have been in an accident caused by another individual's negligence, you are legally allowed to file a claim for monetary damages. Personal injury compensation can cover hospitalization, medical treatment, pain, suffering, emotional trauma, lost income, rehabilitation and home care. An injury attorney can investigate your accident and hold any parties responsible for your accident liable for your injuries.
Hiring a proven compensation attorney is an important first step when seeking damages for an accident that wasn't your fault. The Sumner Law Group has many years of experience helping accident victims, and can discuss the process for filing a claim. We will review your case and its merits, including the type of compensation you can expect to receive.
Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer in Columbia
Personal injury claims are filed with the insurance carrier of the person or entity responsible for the accident. This can include motor vehicle operators who caused a car accident, or the owners of the private or commercial property where a
slip and fall accident occurred. Our office will diligently protect your rights to compensation, and work hard to prevent claim delays and denials. We know that injury compensation can be critical to your financial stability during this difficult time. If an insurance company refuses to take action on a claim or tries to settle for less compensation than you deserve, we will pursue the matter in civil court.
