What Can A Newport Beach Spinal Cord Injury Attorney Do?

Your Newport Beach injury attorney is going to be the person to handle all aspects of this case. Spinal cord injuries often involve significant sums of money, and insurance carriers will likely work to lower your settlement amount. With the resources available to them, they will fully investigate the incident that caused your injury by:

  • Obtaining all of the evidence, including accident reports, eyewitness accounts, video surveillance, and photos from the scene.
  • Obtaining your medical records and having you evaluated by trusted medical professionals to properly assess the extent of your losses.
  • Handling all communication with the other parties involved and work towards a settlement that will cover all of your injury-related expenses.

How Often Do Spinal Cord Injuries Occur?

Spinal cord injuries are amongst the most catastrophic injuries a person can sustain. According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center, there are around 300,000 people living in this country with disabilities from spinal cord injuries.
