HawkLaw’s team of back injury lawyers support your cause with professional legal assistance

Spinal cord injuries (SCIs) can occur during a car crash, workplace accident, a slip and fall, or while playing sports. Some SCIs result in minor back pain for a few months while others result in permanent paralysis. The spine is a delicate part of the body we must strive to protect.  

If you’ve suffered from an SCI, your ability to work and maintain a living is temporarily and potentially permanently limited due to the injury. That’s why we have passionate legal minds with experience building cases for the most serious of spinal cord injuries.

Spinal Cord Injury Facts

According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Database, nearly 70% of all spinal cord injuries are caused by motor vehicle accidents and slip-and-fall incidents. In the majority of all of those cases, negligence on the part of the driver or property owner significantly contributes to the injury.

It’s believed that nearly 200,000 people are victims of spinal cord injuries in any given year. These injuries risk serious and potentially permanent disability that diminishes a victim’s quality of life.

Common FAQ’s

  • What expenses can I receive compensation for in a spinal cord injury claim?

    When a spinal cord injury impacts your quality of life, you have a right to seek fair and just compensation for the sustained injuries. You can file a claim that includes restitution for:

    • Past, present, and future medical expenses, including live-in care
    • Costs of medical equipment and home/vehicle modifications
    • Lost wages and earning capacity
    • Lost quality of life
    • Loss of consortium
    • Pain and suffering
    • Emotional distress
  • Is there a statute of limitations on how long I can file a spinal cord injury claim?

    South Carolina only affords you a short window of opportunity to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party, so it’s important to consult with a lawyer right away. But if some time has passed since your injury, the law does provide some limited exceptions so you might not be out of luck. Contact HawkLaw today to find out if you still have a viable claim.

  • Can my family receive compensation for my personal care?

    Generally, the courts are open to hearing compensation cases for families of spinal cord injury victims. The mental strain and toll of caring for a loved one who’s suffered a temporary or permanent SCI is a significant cost that a case can be made to compensate the family for the impact on their lives. Speak with your lawyer about options for filing a claim on behalf of your family.
