Helping Victims of Spinal Injuries
Spinal injuries are sometimes difficult to diagnose and treat. These spinal injuries occur in almost every kind of accident, including an auto accident, bicycle accident, auto-pedestrian accident, slip, and fall, physical assault, playing sports, accidents at home, and accidents at work. These injuries may often leave the victim either partially paralyzed (paraplegia) or completely paralyzed (quadriplegia or tetraplegia). Either condition requires lifelong treatment, care, and medical expenses. Our spinal injury attorneys understand. If you have been a spinal injury victim, contact our experienced accident attorneys today for a free consultation.
Utah Statute of Limitations
Like any other personal injury claim, a spinal injury claim has a strict statute of limitations. That means that there is a short time to bring a claim for you or your loved one to obtain financial compensation. This limit is extremely short. If the accident involved a government entity, it is even shorter – one year. Time is of the essence to ensure fair compensation for the loss of your loved one.
Recovering Compensation for a Spinal Injury in Utah
There is an extensive list of damages that may be included in a spinal injury claim. Some of these include:
- Medical bills and expenses
- Loss of past and future wages
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of household services (housekeeping, childcare, etc.)
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of parental companionship and guidance
- Mental anguish
- Other possible compensation depending on where the drugs or alcohol involved in the accident were derived and the driving history of the individual driving under the influence
If the spinal injury occurred due to especially egregious or even intentional actions, additional compensation might be sought through punitive damages.
