Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries
Spine injuries can be sustained in a variety of accidents, either due to negligence or pure bad luck. When spine injuries arise out of the following, it is more likely than not that negligence was involved:
- Auto and truck accidents
- Bus collisions
- Bicycle collisions
- Pedestrian accidents
- Motorcycle crashes
- Slip and falls
- Construction site accidents
As mentioned, victims of the above negligence-based accidents tend to have good reason to take legal action.
Why Take Legal Action?
When you’re nursing an injury, taking legal action may seem impossible to do. But what if we told you that legal action may make the road to recovery shorter and more affordable?
A legal claim may result in full compensation for your losses, also known as damages. Even if your claim is not successful, many find some solace in knowing the at-fault party was made to answer for its negligent actions.
You can increase your chances of getting both compensation and answers by working with a St. Louis spinal cord injury attorney. To better serve our clients, our attorneys won’t charge you a dime unless your case is successful.
In short, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain from taking legal action.
Spinal Cord Injury Claims: When to File
In Missouri, the general time limit on filing a personal injury claim is five years from the date of injury. Five years may seem like a long time, but we have seen many clients put off filing only to accidentally miss the statute of limitations.
Note that spine injuries are also highly complex from a medical standpoint. A spinal cord injury lawyer will need time to investigate your case and get a full picture of how the injury has impacted your life.
There may also be other deadlines, such as the early deadline for taking action against a government agency or the extended deadline for a case in which the at-fault party left the state for a certain amount of time.
DiPasquale Moore is known for diving right into negligence cases and quickly resolving them. To get the most out of your case, don’t wait to reach out to us. The sooner you do, the more likely it is that we will be able to recover your compensation.
