When you suffer an injury to any part of your spinal cord, you may suffer intense pain and limited movement. You may also be unable to return to work or school and have no way to support yourself financially.

Rather than suffer both physically and financially, you have the right to seek compensation from the person who caused the accident. You can start by retaining counsel, like a Texas spinal cord injury attorney to represent you.

Filing insurance claims

When the person who caused the accident is a friend or relative, you may have no desire to pursue them personally for your damages. Instead, you may decide to file claims against the insurance company of that person.

Your legal team can obtain the information from the insurer to make claims on your behalf. Your lawyer can also pursue those claims and make sure they are paid out to you in full.

Going for a Settlement

The responsible person may also not want to take the case to court. In fact, this person and the insurer may offer you a settlement to close out the case faster.

Your legal team can make sure the settlement is in line with what you would have won in a court judgment. Your lawyer can also make sure it compensates you fairly for your damages.
