Spinal Cord Injuries

Northern California Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer

Committed to Recovering Fair Compensation

Like traumatic brain injuries, a spinal cord injury has a permanent impact on a person's quality of life and often leaves the victim dependent on others, extended medical care, or both. In many instances, the injured person is also unable to maintain employment, either in his or her field or at all. Because of the impact this type of injury can have on a person, our spinal cord injury lawyers - serving Chico, Roseville, Sacramento, and beyond - work tirelessly on behalf of those who have been injured. If you or someone you love has suffered a spinal cord injury, please don't hesitate to contact our firm today to arrange a free, no-obligation consultation. At the Law Offices of Larry S. Buckley, we are committed to customer service and would be happy to help.

An individual may be eligible to file a suit for compensation if he or she suffered a spinal cord injury, or a family member suffered a spinal cord injury, as a result of another party's negligence, recklessness, intentional behavior, or failure to uphold a duty owed. At our Chico, Roseville, and Sacramento offices, our spinal cord injury lawyers have a wealth of experience handling these cases and can help determine your eligibility to file a claim.

In the event you are able to file suit for financial compensation, you may be able to recover damages for loss of wages, loss of future wages, medical bills, long-term care expenses, pain and suffering, and other losses. If it can be shown that the defendant was woefully negligent, it may also be possible to file for punitive damages to punish the defendant. Though rare, punitive damages are sometimes sought in product liability, premises liability, and medical malpractice cases as a means of ensuring that the same thing doesn't happen again.

Establishing Liability

Our legal team is led by Mr. Larry Buckley, whose scientific background and analytic approach to cases makes our team uniquely capable of investigating the circumstances surrounding an injury and definitively establishing liability. We don't simply act alone, however. We call upon top experts in the fields of forensics, accident reconstruction, medicine, and biomechanical engineering to help us piece together the individual elements of the puzzle and definitively determine fault.

There are a multitude of factors which can cause spinal cord injury. The cause of the injury will determine who the liable parties are, and is an integral element of your claim.

Common causes of spinal cord injury include:

Once liability has been established, we can proceed with filing suit on your behalf to help ensure you obtain the best possible recovery.

Victims' Rights

If you or someone you love has been permanently injured as a result of another party's negligence, you have a legal right to financial compensation for damages. However, the statute of limitations begins at the time of the injury, and if you fail to seek legal action in the time allotted by law, you permanently waive your rights to file a claim for grievances.

It is extremely important that you seek counsel as soon as possible if you or a loved one has suffered a spinal injury. The spinal cord injury lawyers at our Chico, Roseville, Sacramento, and surrounding area offices can help ensure that your legal rights are protected and that the negligent party is held accountable.

Defendant's Duty

As the type of defendant can vary greatly in a spinal cord injury case, so too can the defendant's duty. If the defendant is a company that sells a product, such as in cases involving defective products, the defendant has a legal obligation to ensure that the product is safe, both in its design and manufacture, and that potential risks are clearly advertised.

In the event of a premises liability case, the defendant has a duty to provide safe grounds for invitees and licensees, and to make potential dangers aware to individuals on the premises (for example, a pool must be clearly marked with depth indicators and warning signs regarding diving into shallow water). At our Chico, Roseville, Sacramento, Redding, and Yuba City offices, our Northern California injury attorneys can determine if there was a duty owed.

Spinal Cord Injury FAQs

  • What is the statute of limitations in California for filing a spinal cord injury case? Spinal cord injury cases are considered personal injury cases, and in the state of California, all personal injury cases have a statute of limitations of two years from the date of your injury. If you miss this deadline, you give your rights to bring your case to court. Keep in mind that in wrongful death cases, the statute of limitations is two years from the date of death. Our Northern California spinal cord injury accdient lawyers can prevent you from compromising your case, so call to set up a consultation today.
  • How much compensation can you expect in a spinal cord personal injury case? Spinal cord injury lawsuits can often result in substantial compensation. However, there are many variables that impact the specific dollar amount that is awarded. Higher amounts of compensation may follow for those involved in a car or truck accident, especially if the victim's injuries result in tetraplegia or lifetime financial hardship of paying for the necessary care. Every case has a unique set of circumstances, so contact our spinal cord injury attorney for a consultation.
