Houston Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer

Our spinal cord houses the pathways that our brain uses to communicate with the rest of our body. When the spinal column sustains damage, those pathways can be severed. Spinal cord injuries can result in permanent nerve damage and paralysis. Within seconds, a person’s life can change forever. A spinal cord victim may never regain the ability to care for himself or others. A spinal cord victim may never work again after an accident.

The pain and suffering caused by spinal cord injuries are beyond our ability to understand until it happens to us or someone we love. Sadly, many spinal cord injuries are caused by preventable accidents. A careless or negligent party causes an accident that changes another person’s entire world.

The Houston spinal cord injury attorneys of The Alfred Firm help victims and their families seek justice from the parties who caused the accident that resulted in a spinal cord injury. Victims may be entitled to significant compensation for their injuries, losses, and damages.

We are here for you in your time of need. Call The Alfred Firm today by calling (713) 470-9714 for a free consultation with an experienced Houston spinal cord injury lawyer.

It does not cost you anything to talk to an attorney about your spinal cord injury. If you decide to retain our law firm, we do not charge upfront attorneys’ fees. Cases are handled on a contingency fee basis. Our attorneys’ fees are only paid if we recover money for your claim.

Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries in Houston

Many of the causes of spinal cord injuries each year are avoidable accidents. Some accidents or incidents may involve negligence or gross negligence, while other accidents are caused by carelessness. Regardless of why the accident occurred, the party responsible for causing the accident can be held liable for damages related to a spinal cord injury.

Causes of spinal cord injuries in Houston include:

  • Motor Vehicle Accidents, including car, truck, motorcycle, and rideshare accidents
  • Premises Liability Claims (slip and fall accidents)
  • Refinery Accidents
  • Industrial Accidents and Explosions
  • Construction Accidents
  • Railroad Accidents
  • Maritime Accidents
  • Sports and Recreational Accidents
  • Intentional Acts of Violence

Proving that the accident caused the spinal cord injury is crucial for a personal injury claim. If you cannot prove that another party caused the accident and that the accident caused the spinal cord injury, you cannot receive compensation for your injuries. The Houston spinal cord injuries at The Alfred Firm can help with that.

What Damages Can I Claim for a Spinal Cord Injury?

Spinal cord injuries may be complete or incomplete. Complete spinal cord injuries result in the loss of all motor functions and sensory input below the spinal cord injury. Incomplete spinal cord injury results in some loss of function and sensory input.

The higher the injury site on the spinal column, the greater the loss of function. Paraplegia affects the trunk and legs. Quadriplegia affects all limbs, trunk, and pelvic organs.

The damages in a spinal cord injury case depend on the facts of the case. Generally, spinal cord injury cases include damages related to:

  • Hospitalizations and Surgeries
  • Medical Treatment
  • Personal Care
  • Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy
  • Loss of Income and Lost Earning Potential
  • Emotional and Psychological Pain and Suffering
  • Future Medical Expenses and Personal Care
  • Long-Term and Assisted Living Care

The value of your damages depends on numerous factors, including the severity of your spinal cord injury. Our Houston spinal cord injury lawyers work with economic, medical, and vocational excerpts to accurately estimate the future expenses and losses you are expected to incur based on the severity of your injuries.

Our legal team is in your corner. We are fighting for your best interests and your right to fair compensation for all damages, losses, and injuries. Insurance companies are not on your side.

We do not believe that this approach to resolving claims is fair to the victims of spinal cord injuries. Our lawyers believe you deserve to be treated with dignity, fairness, and respect. That begins with our relationship with you, and we demand the same from the parties responsible for your spinal cord injury.
