Spinal Cord Injury Attorney

A spinal cord injury can be devastating. For many, the effects can last a lifetime and significantly reduce their quality of life.

As your spinal cord injury attorney, Lynn C. Harris in Provo and Salt Lake City, UT, can identify who is responsible and help you collect.

So why should you file a spinal cord injury lawsuit?

Collect Compensation and Hold Negligent Parties Responsible

Ongoing Care

Spinal cord injuries (SCIs) have extensive initial and ongoing medical and general living costs. The average yearly expenses for an individual living with high tetraplegia is $187,443. For most, insurance is simply not enough to cover these potentially lifelong costs.

Loss of Income

Individuals who have sustained SCIs may go months or years without being able to work. For some, they may never be able to earn the same income as before their injury. The economic damages collected in a lawsuit can cover this loss of income.

Seek Justice

If your injury resulted from the actions or negligence of someone else, Mr. Harris can help hold them responsible. A lawsuit may also help prevent others from suffering the same life-altering injury.

Thousands of Spinal Cord Injuries Occur Every Year 

According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center, there are around 17,000 new spinal cord injury cases happening every year in the United States alone. The center also estimates that as of 2016, approximately 282,000 people in the U.S. were living with a spinal cord injury. 

Can you file a lawsuit for your spinal cord injury? 

The Essential Elements

Date of Injury 

Because the statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Utah is four years, the date that your injury occurred is very important in determining whether you are eligible to file a lawsuit. 

Cause of Injury 

To file a personal injury lawsuit, your spinal cord injury must have been caused by the negligence or recklessness of another party. The cause of your injury could include medical malpractice, a car accident, or unsafe premises. 

Losses

If your injury has led to expensive treatment, ongoing medical care, a loss of income, or an inability to return to work, filing a lawsuit is in your best interest
