Car Accidents and Spinal Injuries in Greater Atlanta
Spinal injuries vary widely in severity, location, and symptoms. Depending on exactly how the injury occurred, victims may experience effects in the:
- Cervical spine (neck).
- Lumbar spine (lower back).
- Thoracic spine (mid-back).
Spinal injuries can bruise, impair, or sever the spinal cord, causing conditions that doctors may classify as temporary or permanent, and incomplete or complete. Your spinal injury and the symptoms it causes are likely as unique as the facts of your car accident, despite the fact that collisions are so common.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 2.3 million people undergo treatment in hospital trauma centers each year for car accident injuries. Nationally, the associated treatment costs about $44 billion every year. Collisions are the leading cause of spinal injuries, which are among the most serious and expensive cases.

Georgia Sets a Statute of Limitations on Filing Car Accident Lawsuits
Georgia has a statute of limitations on personal injury cases under O.C.G.A § 9-3-33. This statute generally sets the deadline to file a lawsuit for the second anniversary of the accident. You likely will not be able to pursue a court award if you do not file paperwork to begin a suit by this date.
Reach out to us as soon as you can after an accident that resulted in spinal injuries. If we are able to take your case, our team can go to work and ensure we meet this deadline and other applicable timelines.
