Miami Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer
Spinal cord injuries make feeling, moving around, and controlling the body difficult. These life-changing injuries can occur when a serious fall or car accident, such as a rear-end collision, compresses or severs the spinal cord. They also can occur if a doctor is not careful and damages the spinal cord during back surgery. Often, these injuries result in paraplegia or quadriplegia, leaving the victim permanently unable to move.
Spinal injury victims often have high medical bills and other losses that add up while recovering from an accident. If someone else’s negligence caused these injuries, they should not pay one dime – the negligent party should. If you or a loved one is in this situation, we can seek damages from the liable party on your behalf.

We know this community and are proud to help residents resolve legal matters that are important to them. Contact us today at (888) 677-7764.

- Spinal cord impingement
- Cauda equina syndrome
- Transverse Myelitis
- Nerve root impingement
- Herniated discs
- Other back and spinal cord injuries
People who sustain spinal cord injuries will probably require long-term medical care. They may need job training if they can no longer work at their current position. We are committed to seeking maximum compensation on our clients’ behalf to help recover monetary damages for all related economic and non-economic expenses, including the following:
No two spinal cord injury cases are the same, as people with spinal cord damage face various outcomes. However, in most cases, they require emergency care, hospital stays, surgeries, inpatient rehabilitation, and continued therapy and support. The costs of these medical procedures and services can add up quickly, leaving patients and their families with high bills they cannot pay.
Expenses can also include the costs of any assistive equipment or mobility devices patients need to manage spinal injuries. Equipment can include a wheelchair, stairlift, cane, or crutches. The costs of home modifications to help you move around are also recoverable.
If you or a loved one is recovering from a spinal cord injury, you may not be able to work or work full time, which could result in losing income. An inability to work could be temporary or permanent, affecting your ability to pay bills or cover your accident-related expenses. In either scenario, our attorney could seek compensation for lost income and future lost earning ability.
Pain and Suffering
This category of damages includes losses that are difficult to quantify because they have no fixed dollar value. Our attorneys will assess their value and add them to your claim or lawsuit. These damages not only cover physical discomfort but also:
- Impaired quality of life
- Mental anguish
- Emotional distress
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of enjoyment of life
Our Miami spinal cord injury lawyers will identify all recoverable damages for you and pursue them from the liable party. We can also pursue the costs of any therapy or counseling you may require as you manage your injury, property damage from the related accident, and other costs.
Wrongful Death Damages
If your loved one suffered spinal cord injuries that someone else caused and those injuries led to their death, you might be able to recover damages with a wrongful death lawsuit, including funeral and burial costs, funeral expenses, lost income from the date of injury, and medical costs incurred until the decedent’s death. Our attorney can help you navigate this process if you are eligible under state law.
How Long Do I Have to Pursue a Miami Spinal Injury Case?
We urge you to contact us as soon as possible about your options for filing an injury lawsuit. Florida law generally allows two years from the accident or injury date to file for damages (Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a)). If you are filing a wrongful death case, you generally have two years from the decedent’s death date to sue.
Your case deadline may be different if your spinal cord injury involves medical malpractice or hospital negligence. Your filing deadline is two years from the incident date, but exceptions could apply to your case. We will let you know what those are and explain how they could affect your case’s outcome.
