Walnut Creek Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer

Spinal cord injuries are some of the worst a person could sustain. Tragically, people in Walnut Creek sometimes suffer a spinal cord injury when they are in an automobile accident, are the victim of a dog bite, or are involved in another type of accident. If you have been injured in an accident and someone else was to blame, a Walnut Creek spinal cord injury lawyer can help you claim compensation that can help you recover.

Types of Spinal Cord Injuries

The four most common types of spinal cord injuries are as follows:

  • Cervical spine injuries: These injuries affect the part of the spine that is in the neck.
  • Thoracic spine injuries: Injuries to the thoracic area of the spine will affect the middle of the back.
  • Lumbar spine injuries: Lumbar spine injuries occur in the lower spine and are some of the most common types of damage to the spinal cord after an accident
  • Sacral spine injuries: These injuries affect the tailbone, or the very base of the spine. They are not as common as other types of spinal cord injuries, but have a range of different effects and affect the body in a number of ways.

Regardless of the type of spinal injury cord sustained after an accident, they are generally quite costly to treat. It is for this reason that injured individuals should always file a claim against the liable party, with the help of a spinal cord injury attorney in Walnut Creek, to secure compensation.

Dealing With Insurance Companies After a Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal cord injuries often result from the negligence of another person. For example, if one person causes a car accident, victims of the crash may suffer from a herniated disc, or even paralysis. Negligent parties are usually covered by an insurance policy, regardless of whether they are a driver, property owner, or manufacturer. Unfortunately, insurance companies are very experienced in reducing, denying, and delaying the claims of accident victims.

Insurers will often argue that the accident victim was partly negligent and contributed to the accident that resulted in injuries so they can pay the lowest settlement possible. Or, they will ask for access to the victim’s medical records so they can blame a pre-existing condition for the injury and not the accident that actually caused it.

Due to the fact that insurance companies do not want to offer a fair settlement, anyone that suffers from an injury should speak to a Walnut Creek spinal cord injury lawyer who can deal with the insurer on their behalf.
