Legal Advocates Working Hard For Spinal Cord Injury Victims

Along with traumatic brain injuries, damage to your spinal cord is among the most debilitating injury you can experience. A spinal cord injury can lead to temporary or permanent paralysis, steep medical bills, loss of income (and future earning capacity), years of physical therapy and more. Needless to say, you will need considerable help on your journey to recovery.

That’s where the attorneys at Carlson & Jones, P.A., come in. We bring over 70 years of combined experience to each case, and we aggressively litigate on behalf of Minnesotans who were injured by the negligence of another person, business or organization. Moreover, we always demonstrate respect for you and the difficulties you’ve endured. Simply put, we treat you and your case as a top priority.

Investigating Your Injuries And Determining Fault

There are likely thousands of scenarios that could lead to a spinal cord injury, but they are commonly caused by:

  • Motor vehicle crashes (especially rear-end collisions, which are also the most common type of car accident)
  • Being struck by a motor vehicle as a bicyclist or pedestrian
  • Youth contact sports that lack adequate supervision or safety equipment
  • Slip-and-fall accidents on dangerous private property
  • Assaults and intentional attacks
  • Falls from a significant height (such as falling off a dangerous and defective ladder)

As we investigate your case, we might find that more than one party is liable for your injuries. For instance, if you suffered a spinal cord injury during a violent mugging in a mall parking lot, the person who assaulted you would obviously be primarily to blame. But if the property owners knew that the parking lot was a high-crime area and failed to provide adequate security, they may also be held liable.

Don’t Underestimate The Financial Consequences Of A Spinal Cord Injury

You or your loved one will face a variety of grueling struggles that include long-term therapy, treatments and potentially numerous surgeries. The medical bills associated with this level of care are likely to be unaffordable, even if you have great insurance. Between medical debt and lost wages from time unable to work, pursuing litigation is a natural choice. When you hire us, every detail of the accident will be examined and the responsible party will be pinpointed. Facts will be discussed with insurers and, of course, we’re always prepared to aggressively advocate for you before a judge and jury if negotiations don’t produce the desired outcome. Our attorneys fight for your rights to get back every cent of your accident-related expenses and additional losses.
