If you or a loved one has sustained a spinal cord injury, you’re probably suffering devastating physical, emotional, and financial consequences. To get the financial assistance you need to make it past this painful time, you’ll need to hire a personal injury attorney and file a claim.
A California spinal cord injury lawyer from Triumph Law can obtain compensation for your injuries and losses by taking legal action against the party that caused your accident. They’ll collect evidence, negotiate with the guilty party’s insurance provider, and possibly even file a lawsuit to get you the damages you’re owed.
Why You Need a Spinal Cord Injuries Attorney from California
According to data on Quadriplegia, about 60% of spinal cord injuries result in paralysis from the neck down. If your injury has left you paralyzed or facing other long-term health effects, you could need a personal care assistant and other forms of medical care for the rest of your life.
Even if your injury doesn’t lead to paralysis, you could still suffer lasting complications that prevent you from working or force you to take a less physically demanding and lower-paying job. Between lifelong medical care costs and losing a significant chunk of your income, you could struggle to support yourself financially.
Fortunately, a California spinal cord injuries attorney can hold the party that caused your injury liable for your medical expenses, lost income, and several other related losses. They have the legal experience you need to file a successful claim and protect your right to compensation.
Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries that We Can File a Claim for
Spinal cord damage can result from a number of different incidents. At Triumph Law, we’ve represented accident victims for over 20 years, and during that time, we’ve helped clients recover from injuries suffered in dozens of different scenarios.

We’ll Fight for the Triumph You Deserve
Our firm has secured millions of dollars in triumphant case results for struggling injury victims just like yourself. While we can’t promise a million-dollar settlement, we assure you that we’ll pursue all the damages you’re entitled to receive, including:
Treatment bills can pile up incredibly fast after a spinal cord injury. Luckily, our attorneys in California can pursue full compensation for your ambulance fees, hospital stays, doctor’s appointments, assistive devices, prescription medication, and any other medical costs you incur.
Depending on your diagnosis, you could be out of work for weeks or months. Without the help of an experienced attorney, you might have trouble paying rent and putting food on the table. With a lawyer, you can seek compensation to replace the wages you’ve lost, giving you the financial security you need to recover.
Decreased Earning Ability
As mentioned earlier, permanent conditions can prevent you from working or cause a significant decrease in your earnings. If that’s the case for you, these damages can make up for your reduced income.
Pain and Suffering
Spinal cord injuries can cause visceral pain, chronic pain, and pain from muscle spasms. These damages can help you cope with the physical suffering caused by your condition.
Accident and injury victims often experience emotional distress, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, and other mental health issues. The spinal cord injury attorneys from our team in California can get you the funds you need to pay for counseling sessions and, if necessary, prescription medication.
Diminished Quality of Life
Spinal cord injury victims suffering from paralysis and other conditions that limit activity may experience a dramatic decrease in quality of life. If your condition prevents you from doing what you love and enjoying your life, a lawyer can request these damages.
You Must Get Your Suit Filed Before California’s Deadline
If our spinal cord injury lawyers in California advise you to file a personal injury lawsuit against the party that caused your accident, you’ll have to do so in accordance with the state’s statute of limitations. The statute, which can be found in California Code of Civil Procedure § 335.1, gives you two years from the day you were injured to submit a civil suit.
Allowing the two-year deadline to pass without taking legal action will likely strip you of your right to compensation. However, there are some exceptions to the statute. You should still contact an attorney if you believe your filing deadline has passed. They’ll be able to advise you on how long you have to file and discuss your best course of action moving forward.
No Fee Unless We Triumph!
Our team doesn’t believe in charging fees unless we secure compensation on the client’s behalf. That’s why we work on a contingency fee basis. In other words, your spinal cord injury attorney will take a portion of the compensation you receive from your insurance claim or lawsuit instead of charging you out-of-pocket.
If your spinal cord injuries attorney from California doesn’t win your case, you won’t have to pay us anything. In addition to helping you avoid yet another financial burden, this payment method also ensures that your attorney will work as hard as they can to obtain a fair settlement, as their compensation depends on the success of your case.
