The guidance and patience exhibited by Attorney LaRue and his team were paramount in the successful navigation of this event for my family and I. In a perfect world I won't have to ring his phone anytime soon, but should the Truck of Life dump on me again, I wouldn't hesitate to dial them up.

Working with experts can help us determine what your medical care needs are and what the cost of medical treatment will be now and in the future. Your attorney’s goal is to ensure you recover every penny of compensation, so you can focus on recovering and moving forward with your life.

What Types of Damages Can I Recover After An Accident that Results in a Spinal Cord Injury?

The types of economic and non-economic damages you can pursue will depend on many factors, such as the severity of your injuries, your prognosis, whether you’re able to return to work, how much time you missed at work, whether multiple parties were involved, and other variables. 

If you were involved in an accident that resulted in partial or total paralysis, you may be entitled to the following types of compensation:

  • Past and future medical care costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Property damage
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Emotional distress
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Permanent disability

At Loncar Lyon Jenkins, our spinal cord injury attorneys will investigate your accident and consult with experts to determine which damages you’re entitled to.

What is the Statute of Limitations for Spinal Cord Injury Cases?

If you were injured in an accident that resulted in a spinal cord injury, you will have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit against the negligent party. If you miss this important deadline, your case will be dismissed and you will be unable to pursue compensation in court. Hiring a spinal cord injury lawyer during this difficult time not only increases your chances of recovering the compensation you deserve, but also ensures your case is filed correctly and within the statute of limitations.
