Why You Need a Houston Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer

Insurance companies often treat clients unfairly in an attempt to save money on payouts and protect their own profits. As a large personal injury law firm in Houston, The Doan Law Firm can match the resources of an insurance corporation and prevent you from being taken advantage of. Insurance companies recognize that we have the power to go to trial for maximum financial compensation, if necessary. Hiring our lawyers can improve your monetary recovery and give you the ability to move forward from a traumatic accident.

What Are Spinal Cord Injuries?

A spinal cord injury describes any type of damage to the components of the spine, such as the vertebrae, tissues, disks or surrounding nerves. It is often a serious injury that results in long-term or permanent changes in how a victim experiences sensation, movement and bodily function. While it is possible to make a full recovery from a spine injury that is incomplete or does not destroy the cells, complete spinal cord injuries with cell destruction can cause irreversible paralysis in some or all of the body.

Loss of movement and sensation in the bottom half of the body is known as paraplegia, while paralysis in the trunk and all four limbs is quadriplegia. Other types of spinal cord injuries include spinal concussion, contusions, slipped or ruptured discs, torn ligaments, and bone fractures. In addition to paralysis, a spinal cord injury can cause symptoms such as pain or pressure in the neck or back, muscle weakness, loss of bladder and bowel control, sexual dysfunction, and difficulty breathing.

Compensation Available for a Spine Injury Case in Texas

Victims of spinal cord injuries in Houston may be able to recover a variety of types of compensation if their claim against another party is successful. If we examine information available from the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center (NSCISC), we can see the extreme financial burden these injuries can place on victims and their family members. The data shows that, for the first year of medical care alone, treatment expenses can range anywhere from $375,000 to more than $1.1 million, depending on the level of severity of the injury. The data also shows that every subsequent year of medical care, for the remainder of a person’s life, the costs can reach anywhere from $45,000 to more than $200,000.

It is imperative for spinal cord injury victims to recover the compensation they need. The medical costs mentioned above do not even include the additional massive financial expenses victims will face, including lost wages, the need to modify homes or vehicles to help with mobility, as well as the immense physical, mental, and psychological pain and suffering.

Members from our team will work to help you and your family will cover both economic and non-economic damages. This includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Coverage of emergency medical expenses
  • Compensation to pay for all future necessary medical treatment
  • Medical devices such as wheelchairs, hospital beds, etc.
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation
  • Lost wages and loss of future earning potential
  • Out-of-pocket expenses that will arise due to the incident
  • Physical pain and suffering damages
  • Emotional and psychological pain and suffering damages
  • Loss of quality of life damages
  • Loss of consortium damages for a spouse

How Much Does a Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer in Houston Cost?

At The Doan Law Firm, we handle spinal cord injury claims in Houston on a contingency fee basis. For injury victims and their families, this means they pay absolutely no upfront costs related to their case, and they will not pay any legal fees until after our team successfully recovers the compensation they are entitled to. This means that if we do not win the case, spinal cord injury victims will pay absolutely nothing. Any legal fees will be a percentage of the final settlement or jury verdict that we agree on before we even start working on the case, so there will be no surprises.

How Will an Attorney Help Your Claim?

A spinal cord injury lawyer in Houston will be your advocate throughout the entire course of your claim. Your lawyer will make sure you understand what is going on as your claim proceeds forward, and they will handle the following:

  • Conducting an investigation into the incident to determine liability
  • Initiating conversations with other parties involved
  • Working with trusted economic and medical experts to calculate your total expected expenses
  • Negotiating with other parties to help you receive a fair settlement
  • Fully preparing your spinal cord injury claim for a jury trial if necessary

Your focus should be on recovering from your injury and adapting to the “new normal” associated with the aftermath. This is undoubtedly a challenging time for you and your family, and we want to help ease the burden as much as possible.
