Recovering Compensation for Your Back and Spinal Cord Injuries
When Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers represents an accident victim, especially one who suffered catastrophic injuries, we want to secure a fair payout for our client based on the facts of their case. This could require our team to gather evidence to support an insurance claim or sue the responsible party in civil court.
The recoverable damages in a personal injury case when the victim suffered back and spinal cord injuries could include:
Economic Damages, Both Current and Future
Treating and living with back and spinal cord injuries can be expensive. You may be able to recover costs that include:
- Medical bills
- Rehabilitation and therapy
- Future care costs
- Home renovations for mobility
- Wheelchairs and other specialized equipment
Even for victims who make a full recovery, their careers often take a significant hit. They may miss weeks or months from work. Many people with permanent injuries never return to their previous jobs. This lost income may be factored into your compensation package in the form of:
- Missed wages
- Lost benefits
- Diminished ability to earn a living
Non-economic damages recoverable in a personal injury claim may include pain and suffering, mental anguish, and reduced quality of life.
A personal injury lawyer in Hammond from our firm can help you identify the specific damages that may be included in your back and spinal cord injury case.

How Soon do I Need to Take Action to Hold the At-Fault Party Responsible?
It can be difficult to know when to file an insurance claim or take other actions following a back and spinal cord accident injury. The best option is to reach out to our team for your free consultation as soon as your injuries allow. We can help you identify deadlines during this call. You can also call on behalf of a family member if they are still undergoing treatment and rehabilitation.
Per CC §3492, accident victims in Louisiana generally only have one year to file a personal injury lawsuit against the person who caused their accident. If you wait longer than this, you may lose your right to sue.
Because reaching maximum medical recovery for a spinal cord injury can take longer than one year, we may want to use medical experts to estimate your future costs of treatment as part of your case. Our team knows how to handle this and seek damages for your injuries, treatment, future care, and lasting impairments.
