Why You Need a Lawyer If You Have Suffered a Spinal Injury in an Accident

When you suffer a spinal cord injury in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, you are eligible to seek compensation from the liable party. The Atlanta personal injury lawyers at Butler Kahn will work hard to ensure the at-fault party is held responsible for your losses and damages.

Our compassionate personal injury attorneys understand the financial and emotional costs of your neck, back, or spinal cord injury. Our spinal cord injury lawyer will fight tirelessly for the best possible outcome in your case.

The Atlanta spinal cord injury attorneys at Butler Kahn can help you by:

  • Answering all your questions
  • Explaining your legal options
  • Conducting a thorough investigation of your accident
  • Calculating how much your case is potentially worth
  • Filing a lawsuit on your behalf
  • Collecting evidence to support your claim
  • Consulting with medical experts
  • Negotiating for a fair settlement
  • Taking your case to court if a settlement cannot be reached
  • Fighting for a favorable verdict

Handling a spinal cord injury claim on your own is very difficult, especially when you still have severe pain from your injury. Spinal cord injury claims are complex. You have to conduct an in-depth investigation to establish the other party is liable for your injury.

You will also have to negotiate with aggressive insurance adjusters. The adjusters want to settle for the lowest amount possible. These are some of the reasons why you need a highly skilled and experienced spine injury lawyer from Butler Kahn. We are committed to fighting for your rights and pursuing the maximum compensation you deserve.

The state of Georgia places a Statute of Limitations on personal injury claims, such as those for spinal cord injuries. The statute limits the time you have to bring a lawsuit to two years. Two years may seem like a long time, but if you review the bullet points above, you can see that this time can go by quickly based on the amount of research and preparation the legal team at the Butler Kahn will be performing for you. Don’t delay. If you should allow the two-year time period to pass, and not bring a lawsuit, you have forfeited your opportunity to do so.
