Alabama Spinal Injury Lawyer
A spinal injury could mean lifelong consequences. If you’ve been in an accident that injured your back, an Alabama spine injury attorney can fight for the compensation you need.
The spine is a vital part of mobility, sensation, and motor skills, but sadly, it’s a common spot for severe injuries. When the spinal cord is damaged, it can lead to life-changing injuries. Even seemingly minor trauma to the back could be enough to partially paralyze you.
If you’ve suffered a spine injury because of someone else’s actions, you could be eligible for compensation, but that will mean navigating Alabama law and filing a personal injury claim. That can be difficult. Fortunately, an Alabama spinal injury lawyer from the Henry Dailey Law Firm can protect your claim to make sure you get the compensation you deserve.
Spinal Injuries Are Serious
Unfortunately, a spinal injury may be impossible to fully recover from. The severity of your injury will depend on whether it’s complete or incomplete—meaning whether the injury completely separated the spinal cord or there’s still a chance to repair the damage below the injury.
A complete injury is what many of us think of when we think of a spinal cord injury. You may be completely paralyzed from the point of the injury down. Even if you’re not, you may still have numbness, reduced fine motor skills, and trouble moving as you once did.
When you’re this badly injured, keep in mind that you’ll need full compensation—and you’ll have a limited time to get it. You’ll have only two years to file before your case is dismissed. A spinal injury lawyer in Alabama can speed things along.
Seeking Full Compensation for a Back Injury
When you’ve suffered a spinal injury in Alabama, you’ll need to get your claim underway quickly, but you’ll also need to keep in mind that your injuries will last a long time. You may be unable to return to your job, you’ll need therapy to regain as much mobility as possible, and adapting to such a change can be traumatic.
When you tally up your damages, you should include future expenses, as well. Your compensation should help you going forward, and the person responsible for your accident should cover the injuries he or she caused. The hardships you’re facing now won’t disappear just because your current bills are paid—you’ve got to look to the future, too.
Be sure to calculate the current and ongoing impact of all of the following damages, among others, so you’ll have the compensation you need for a full recovery:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Household accommodations for your back injury
- Lost wages
- Mental anguish
- Loss of enjoyment of life
