Injured Your Spinal Cord? Liability in a Spinal Cord Injury Claim

Agoura Hills Spinal Injury Lawyer

Spine Injury Claims

A spinal cord injury can result in paralysis, devastating pain, loss, and anguish for the injured person and their family. They may have many questions about the cost of the treatment of the injury and the assistance required to do activities of daily life, as well as the potential for a complete recovery.

Causes of Spinal Injuries

Typically, spinal cord injuries result from the following causes:


If you or a loved one has suffered a spinal cord injury as a result of a fall, accident, or any other cause, contact an Agoura Hills spine injury attorney at Effres & Effres, and learn how you can protect your legal rights to compensation.


Paraplegia & Quadriplegia

There are two major classifications of spinal cord injuries. When a spinal cord injury has left a person with limited or no motion or movement in their lower limbs, the condition is called paraplegia. When the injury has left a person paralyzed in all four limbs, the condition is called quadriplegia.

Liability in a Spinal Cord Injury Claim

Prevailing in a spinal cord injury claim will depend on your ability to establish that the defendant was negligent and that the negligence caused the injuries. If your injury was caused when you slipped and fell on a puddle of water at your local grocery store, the grocery store can be held liable for the injuries if the grocery store knew or should have known about the dangerous condition.

How a Spine Injury Lawyer Can Help

Issues of liability are often challenging to determine. Defendants’ insurance companies can be expected to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars defending spinal cord injury cases to try to avoid paying the large damage awards commensurate with these devastating injuries.

If you or a loved one has suffered a spinal cord injury, you may be eligible to file a claim for losses. Discuss your case with an Agoura Hills spinal cord injury lawyer at Effres & Effres.
