Peoria Spinal Cord Injury Attorney
Spinal cord injuries are often serious and life-changing and may result in months or even years of suffering. In addition to the pain and suffering, victims and their families also face ongoing extensive and costly medical treatments.
At Phillips Law Group, our spinal cord injury attorneys understand the emotional and financial burden this places on a victim and his or her family. Our firm has been helping injured victims in Arizona for over 27 years. We have recovered hundreds of millions in damages for the more than 155,000 clients we have represented. This includes a $4 million settlement we obtained for an accident victim who suffered a spinal cord injury in a car accident.
We are prepared to review your potential spinal cord injury claim in a free legal consultation to determine whether you may be eligible to pursue a claim. If your case has merit and we represent you, we do not require you to pay any upfront fees. We only get paid if we help you recover compensation.
We are available day and night, online or by phone: 1-800-706-3000.
Am I Eligible to File a Claim?
If your spinal cord injury was the result of another person’s negligence, or the negligence of a product manufacturer, you may have grounds to pursue a lawsuit. However, the burden of proof is on you, and it is challenging to prove that the at-fault party is liable for your injuries. That is why we recommend reaching out to one of our experienced Peoria spinal cord injury attorneys who have extensive knowledge about spinal cord injury claims.
If you have a valid case, our attorneys at Phillips Law Group know how to establish these four elements of negligence:
- Duty of care – The at-fault driver owed you a duty to act in a reasonable way that would prevent you or others from suffering an injury.
- The duty of care was breached – The responsible driver failed to uphold his or her legal duty by acting in a negligent, careless or reckless manner.
- The breach of duty and your injury are connected – The at-fault party’s negligence caused the accident that injured you.
- You suffered damages – You suffered tangible damages, such as pain and suffering, lost wages and medical expenses.

What Is the Value of My Case?
Each spinal cord injury case is different. We can tell you more about the potential value of a claim after assessing the unique circumstances that caused your accident and the extent of your injuries. In general, however, the types of compensation you may be able to pursue include:
Lost Wages – Injured victims are often unable to work following the accident that caused their spinal cord injury.
Loss of Earning Capacity – Additional compensation for those who are unable to return to the same line of work or may be permanently unable to work.
Medical Expenses – Past, present and future medical care may be required for months or even a lifetime for some victims.
Pain and Suffering - Spinal cord injuries can lead to a lifetime of pain and emotional distress. This is a less tangible type of compensation, but your attorney knows how to accurately calculate a fair value.
Home modifications – For some spinal cord injury victims, a home may need to be modified to enable better mobility.

How Much Time Do I Have to File a Claim?
Spinal cord injury victims have two years from the date of the accident to file a claim. However, there are some exceptions to this rule that may affect your filing deadline. In some cases, you may have to file much sooner, so we encourage you to seek legal advice without delay. If you miss this deadline, you may be barred from court and prohibited from seeking any compensation for your injury.

What Are the Different Types of Spinal Cord Injuries?
Spinal cord injuries can be caused by repeated movements that can cause serious damage over a long period of time. This type of spinal cord injury is known as a repetitive use or overuse injury.
Acute spinal cord injuries that occur in a single accident may include:
- Bulging/ruptured discs
- Dislocations or fractures of the vertebrae
- Sprain and strain injuries
Fractures to the spine can result in serious damage, such as:
- Paraplegia – Loss of function of the legs
- Quadriplegia – Loss of function in all four limbs
Overuse injuries may cause the victim to suffer muscle spasms and stiffness. Victims of this form of spinal cord injury may need physical therapy to relieve the pain.
