The aftermath of a spinal cord injury can place significant limitations on your day-to-day life. You may not be able to be as active as you once were. You may struggle with going to work or maintaining your lifestyle. If a loved one suffered a spinal cord injury, your days might be centered around helping them eat, bathe, and get dressed.
While some spinal cord injuries are purely accidental, others are caused by negligence. If another driver’s actions resulted in your injury and accident-related expenses, you could seek compensation for your losses.
Legal Aid on a Contingency-Fee-Basis
Spinal cord injuries can require ongoing medical treatment, costly modifications to your home or car, and other significant life changes and expenses. With that being said, while considering your legal options, you may be concerned about the cost. The team at Bader Scott Injury Lawyers provides legal help on a contingency fee basis. This arrangement can benefit you in a variety of ways.
Namely, in a contingency fee arrangement, you do not need to pay anything upfront for our help. You only pay us at the conclusion of your case––and even then, we take payment for our services from any settlement we obtain on your behalf.
Our goal is to provide legal representation to people who need it. We believe that in the midst of dealing with rising medical bills and lost income, the cost of hiring a lawyer should not be among one of your concerns. You can get in touch with Bader Scott Injury Lawyers today to learn more.

Car Accidents Can Lead to Spinal Cord Injuries
The Mayo Clinic reports that motor vehicle accidents are among the leading causes of spinal cord injuries. The force of impact in a collision can misalign the spinal column, cause fractures, and lead to nerve damage.
Our team understands how complicated car accident cases can be. If there are multiple parties involved, they may each have different insurance companies. If the other driver’s account of events differs from yours, it may be difficult to prove fault and liability. However, our team is eager to address the challenges that your case may present.
To pursue compensation, we will need to demonstrate how your accident happened.
Some causes of your motor vehicle collision may include:
- Drunk driving
- Improper lane changes
- Distracted driving
- Driver inexperience
- Poor vehicular maintenance
- Driving while fatigued
There may be other contributing factors to your accident beyond those listed above.

Our Team Can Handle Your Legal Matters
Many people’s conceptions of what a lawyer does are based on what they have seen on TV. While these portrayals are not exactly inaccurate, they often do not provide a comprehensive understanding of how a lawyer can help you.
Once our legal team determines that you have a case and you partner with us, we can:
Write and Send Your Demand Letter
After examining your situation and calculating the extent of your losses, we will write and submit your demand letter to the liable insurance company. In this letter, we will present the severity of your injuries and the cost of your losses. Ideally, the insurance company will recognize the gravity of your situation and offer a settlement. Otherwise, our legal team will proceed with the negotiation process.
Negotiate a Settlement
We will go back and forth with the insurance company until we are able to reach an agreement. Yet, if they deny your claim or do not cooperate, we can file a lawsuit in a court of law. Georgia Code (O.C.G.A.) §9-3-33 says that you typically have two years to file a personal injury lawsuit, though this timeline may be subject to change based on your situation.
File a Lawsuit
Filing a lawsuit is typically only necessary if you cannot reach a settlement with the liable insurance company. Most personal injury cases do not take this route. However, Bader Scott Injury Lawyers is ready to file your lawsuit if need be. We can use our network of resources and years of experience to fight for you. We have no problem cross-examining witnesses, disputing pieces of evidence, and presenting your case in its entirety.
While litigation is underway, we will continue negotiating for a settlement. We will fight to resolve your case in a way that meets the needs of your situation.
We Can Help You Recover Compensation for Your Losses
Our mission is to help people who have incurred financial losses after getting hurt. We are ready to help you seek compensation for your economic and non-economic losses. We may also be able to pursue punitive damages, although this only happens in certain situations.
Our team can seek a financial recovery of the following types of losses:
- Medical bills
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Loss of consortium
- Lost income
Some spinal cord injuries are just the beginning of one’s decline in health. If you lost a loved one due to a car accident, you can seek compensation for their funeral and healthcare expenses.
