Spinal Injury Lawyers

Accidents happen, but when they result in a spinal cord injury, the consequences can be life-threatening, paralyzing, and financially devastating. Not only will you need to navigate the healthcare system to receive treatment, but you'll also need to speak with a lawyer who can help you manage your case. In this article, we discuss how to avoid mistakes that could worsen your injury and how spinal injury lawyers can help.

Mistakes to Avoid After a Spinal Cord Injury

  • Not receiving immediate medical evaluation and treatment: If you experience any potential spinal cord injury symptoms, even if they seem minor, it is critical to seek medical attention immediately and follow your treatment plan thoroughly. This includes taking all prescribed medications, attending physical therapy sessions, and making lifestyle changes as recommended by your doctor.

  • Not contacting a personal injury attorney: Spinal cord injuries are devastating injuries that can have a lifelong impact on the victim and their family. If you have suffered a spinal cord injury, it is important to hire spinal injury lawyers to represent you. Falcon Law Firm’s team can help you navigate the complex legal process and secure the compensation you need to cover your medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages.

  • Posting on social media: Avoid posting pictures and details about your accident and injuries on social media. Anything you post, including photos, can damage your case and may be used against you in an attempt to prove you don't have a serious injury.

  • Waiting too long to file a claim: Each state has a statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim. In Louisiana, the statute of limitations is one year from the date of injury. After this period expires, a lawsuit may not be considered by the court, and any potential damages may not be recoverable.
