Lexington Neck, Spine, and Back Injury Attorneys Help Accident Victims Recover
Highly professional lawyers seek full compensation for harm
Nationwide, motor vehicle accidents cause more than 35 percent of injuries to the neck, back, and spine, while falls cause more than 25 percent. Such injuries, which often impact the delicate nerve fibers of the spinal cord, can be painful, debilitating and even permanently disabling. But, if the cause of your spine injury is negligence, the Banks Law Office, PLLC is prepared to help. Our personal injury attorneys draw on more than 35 years of combined litigation experience to fight aggressively for your rights. Spinal injuries can be catastrophic, permanently altering the course of your life. We pursue damage awards that compensate for the full extent of your injuries and a lifetime of future needs.
Experience with various types of spinal injuries
If you are to recover full compensation for your back or neck injury, your attorney must put together a compelling case so the jury understands the full scope of harm you’ve suffered. We have ample experience with cases of traumatic brain injury and spinal injuries resulting from auto accidents and other causes. We understand the medical implications of:
- Displaced and ruptured discs
- Compressed vertebrae
- Fractured vertebrae
- Ligament damage
- Nerve damage
You can trust our personal injury lawyers to convey the extent of your suffering and the degree of your disability in a manner that a jury can understand.
Getting the maximum compensation possible to treat long-term health issues
Depending on the severity of a spinal injury, a victim can suffer various symptoms:
- Chronic pain
- Impaired breathing
- Loss of mobility
- Loss of muscular strength and coordination
- Loss of sensation
- Loss of internal organ function
- Loss of bowel and bladder control
- Loss of sexual function
- Partial or complete paralysis
- Permanently twisted neck or back
Victims of spinal injuries may be unable to work, either at their previous profession or at all, so they face a loss of earnings for the duration of their lives. They may even need assistance with basic personal maintenance. These are compensable losses, as are the victim’s medical bills now and in the future. A victim of spinal injury can also claim noneconomic losses, such as:
- Physical pain
- Emotional suffering
- Loss of quality of life
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of consortium
The statute of limitations in Kentucky only allows one year for a victim to take action. If you have a case for negligence, our attorneys are prepared to fight for the compensation you deserve.
