Common Causes Of Spinal Injury Accidents

Spine injury cases can come from any type of accident. Anytime your spinal cord is tweaked, pulled, pushed, or jerked, it can cause a serious spinal injury. These accidents can cause long-lasting consequences, including pain, headaches, or even paralysis.

Spinal injuries usually occur in the neck area and are common in car accidents and other vehicle accidents. Injuries can happen from the head hitting the windshield or from very severe whiplash. A disk injury or spinal cord injury can also occur in other types of accidents, such as slip-and-fall accidents, bicycle accidents, or motorcycle accidents.

What Damages Could Be Recovered in a Spinal Injury Claim?

Recovering from a spin injury can be expensive, especially when you are unable to work while you are healing. Our attorneys can help you and your family seek compensation against the negligent party that led to the accident and their insurance company.

You may be entitled to economic damages, including:

  • Medical care, including surgeries, medications, and necessary medical devices
  • Rehabilitation and therapy
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of future earning capacity

In addition, spine injuries can cause serious and lifelong mental distress, particularly when the injured victim is unable to live his or her life as they once did. In these cases, the victim may seek non-economic damages for their loss of enjoyment in life, loss of companionship in the case of a wrongful death, pain and suffering, and diminished quality of life.

What is the Statute of Limitations for Spinal Cord Injury Claims in California?

Understanding the statute of limitations is critical when pursuing a spinal cord injury claim in California. The statute of limitations is the legal time frame within which a victim must file a lawsuit. In California, the statute of limitations for spinal cord injury claims varies depending on the circumstances surrounding the incident.

For personal injury claims, including those related to spinal cord injuries, the general statute of limitations is two years from the date of the injury. However, certain exceptions may apply, and it is crucial to consult with experienced Chula Vista spine injury lawyers to determine the specific deadlines relevant to your case.

In cases involving government entities or public properties, there are additional complexities. A notice of claim must often be filed within six months from the date of the injury, making it imperative to act swiftly and seek legal guidance promptly.
