You Could Win Economic and Non-economic Damages for Your Spinal Injury
According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center (NSCISC), the lifetime cost of a spinal injury can range from more than $1.1 million to more than $4.7 million, depending on the severity and age of the victim.
This figure only includes the cost of living and health care costs, such as surgeries, hospitalizations, and rehabilitation. The NSCISC estimates that lost wages, fringe benefits, and productivity add up to around another $70,000 per year.
You should not be responsible for damages like these when another party is the reason you are facing them at all. Our team will work hard to help you recover the following:
Expenses and Income Losses
You can seek economic damages to compensate for your past and future medical expenses, lost wages, loss of future earning capacity, and property damages.
If your loved one passed away from a spinal injury, you can seek the cost of their final medical treatments and funeral and burial expenses. You may be eligible to seek compensation for their lost wages and benefits as well.
Pain and Suffering
You can seek non-economic damages to compensate for your physical pain and emotional suffering. A spinal injury can change your way of life. It may affect how you live, work, and interact with your family. This can lead to mental health problems, like depression and insomnia, as well as physical complications.
You can also seek pain and suffering damages on behalf of a deceased loved one.

We Will Stand Up to the Insurance Companies and Fight for Your Settlement
If another driver hurt you, their insurance company should pay for your injuries. We can help you file an auto insurance claim and represent you throughout the claims process.
The insurance company does not work for you, but we will. Our attorneys will protect your rights, make sure the insurance company does not pressure you into accepting an unfair settlement, and negotiate until we reach an agreement that provides you with the financial resources you need.
If an insurance agent contacts you before you reach out to our firm:
- Be polite and stay calm.
- Provide them with basic information, but do not go into detail about your accident or injuries.
- Do not admit fault, enter into negotiations, or accept the first settlement offered.
- Do not speculate about the cause of the accident or potential witnesses.
- Tell them that all future communications should go through your attorney.
Filing Deadlines for Lawsuits in Decatur
We will do everything we can to get you compensation without going to court. However, if the insurance company denies your claim or refuses to offer you a fair settlement, we can fight for you at trial.
According to OCGA §9-3-33, you have two years to file personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits in civil court. Some circumstances could extend the statute of limitations, which your attorney can discuss with you further. However, in general, you cannot seek awards if this two-year time limit expires.
Although this rule does not apply to settling an insurance claim, insurance companies know about these time limits. Adjusters could use the statute of limitations to deny you a payout. Even if you do not think your case will end up in court, it is best to get started as soon as possible following your accident.
