Common Spinal Injuries and Symptoms
A spinal injury may include damage to the vertebrae, the spinal cord, the nerves running through it, or the muscles and ligaments surrounding it. These injuries can cause a variety of symptoms:
- Numbness or tingling in extremities
- Loss of mobility
- Severe headaches or migraines
- Constant pain in the back, neck, or shoulders
- Sexual dysfunction
- Inability to feel extreme temperatures or a loss of sensation
- Muscle spasms
- Breathing difficulties
It Takes Time to Recover
After a car accident, most people are initially concerned with their health. Depending on the severity of the injuries, it could take years to recover.
Sometimes accident victims put off filing a lawsuit so they can focus on getting better. However, this is often a bad idea, as recovery may take longer than the statute of limitations that applies to the accident.
File a Lawsuit Before Time Runs Out
Regardless of how long your recovery may require, in California, you only have two years to file a lawsuit after being in an accident.
If you fail to file within that time frame, you could lose your opportunity to seek compensation for your spine injury.
It takes time to put a case together, so it is wise to hire an Orange County spine injury car accident lawyer as soon as possible. Let us work on your case while you focus on your health.
An Orange County Spine Injury Car Accident Lawyer Can Maximize Your Financial Award
In order to maximize your financial award, we will need to limit the amount of negligence assigned to you.
California has shared negligence laws, also known as shared fault—this means that both drivers can be found partially to blame for an accident.
Whatever percentage of fault you are found responsible for is the percentage your settlement will be reduced by. So if you are found to be 10 percent at fault and are awarded a $10,000 settlement, your settlement will then be reduced by $1,000.
We Gather Evidence
We will need to demonstrate that the other driver was more negligent than you so you can receive as much compensation as possible.
Medical records and doctor’s testimony that illustrate the nature and extent of your injuries will be vital to your case. How your spinal injury has and will impact your life will factor into your settlement.
