Types of injuries

There are many different kinds of injuries that affect a person's spine or back. Some of the most common - and severe - ones include:

Back injuries

  • Back sprain
  • Back strain
  • Fractured vertebrae
  • Herniated disk

Spine injuries

  • Complete spinal cord injury
  • Incomplete spinal cord injury
  • Paralysis

Other types of back and spine injuries are common. But each one is unique. That's why it's critical that you talk to an attorney as soon as possible after your Houston car accident.

Back and spine injuries can impact your life in many ways. You may need surgery, hospitalization, medication, physical therapy, home health care and multiple follow-up appointments with specialists. You may be left unable to work and take part in your usual activities.

Medical expenses for treatment can become overwhelming while there is less income coming in because you can’t work. This can lead to significant financial stress. You may wonder how you can possibly pay your medical bills. If a negligent driver caused the crash that left you injured, you shouldn’t have to pay.

Why choose our car accident lawyers

You only have a limited amount of time to obtain the compensation you deserve for a back or spine injury in Houston. In Texas, the deadline (known as the "Statute of Limitations") for obtaining financial compensation for most back or spine injury accidents is two years.

And since you will likely only have one opportunity to obtain all the money you will need to cover all your accident-related expenses during your lifetime, it's important that you have an experienced legal team on your side, defending your rights. Our lawyers are skilled negotiators and litigators who know how to get results.

Our legal team investigates your crash to find out what really happened. We know where to look for evidence that can help us hold negligent drivers accountable. We carefully review accident reports and medical records and interview witnesses. If needed, we consult accident reconstruction experts and other specialists.

We fight for the best possible outcome in your case. Our lawyers can often negotiate a settlement with the insurance company. But if the insurance company won’t do what’s right, we will be fully prepared to fight for you in court.

We know how the legal system works in Houston and throughout Harris County. When you have our legal team working for you, you can dictate what happens, not insurance companies. That's because we know how to negotiate with them. And if they refuse to cooperate, we're prepared to take them to court. Take your case seriously right from the start.
