The Spinal Injuries Law Firm Serving Phoenix
Spinal Injuries Info
The first step to seeking compensation for a spinal cord injury is realizing you have one. Some of the most common symptoms include fatigue, pain or pressure in the neck, back or head, paralysis, numbness in the extremities, decreased coordination, and more.
Spinal cord injuries often require surgery, and may even need more than one procedure. Victims frequently need physical therapy, and will be out of work for a while. Some even become permanently disabled.
Most people assume that spinal cord injuries can only occur in very serious car accidents or workplace accidents, but these injuries are more common than you think. Spinal cord injuries can happen in a number of different ways, but some of the most common include:
Regardless of how or where you suffered your injury, you may be able to seek compensation if the accident was caused by someone else’s negligence—a distracted driver, a manufacturer of a defective product, or perhaps the owner of a hotel with an unsafe staircase.
Our attorneys understand the severity of spinal cord injuries. We’ll help advise you on the best legal options to seek compensation, inform you of what to expect from this process, and do everything in our power to help you get your life back.
Slip & Fall: $150k Recovered
Mr. Ruiz, in my opinion, fought and won an unwinn-able lawsuit with Bank of America for me. He kept digging until he found enough evidence to convince them they could not win. I have nothing but praise for Lawrence and would gladly hire him again if the need ever arose.

Legal Questions? Talk to a top attorney
No matter how your injury occurred or how severe your spinal cord injury is, our attorneys are experienced in building and winning injury cases for hurt victims throughout the state of Arizona and the city of Phoenix.
Some of the most common causes of spinal cord injuries include vehicle crashes (especially motorcycles and tractor trailers), recreational activities, falls, and workplace accidents (especially in construction).
There’s a very good reason most victims choose to hire an attorney—people who represent their own cases tend to receive smaller payouts on average, and some aren’t able to receive compensation at all.
If you’ve suffered a spine injury due to the careless actions or negligence of another person, you may have a case. Contact us ASAP for a free case evaluation so we can help you weigh your options and choose the best path to seek compensation.
Absolutely not. You have enough to worry about right now—hospital visits, surgeries, physical therapy—and worrying about legal fees should be the last thing on your mind. Our clients don’t pay anything until they win.
It takes time to build a case, and every case is different. The more complex your case is and the more your case is worth, the longer it may take to negotiate with the other side in order to reach a fair outcome for you.
The truth is that most of our clients don’t have to go to court. We’re able to negotiate fair settlements in a majority of cases. However, your case may go to court—it’s hard to say until we’ve started building your case.
Every case is unique. However, different factors can influence your settlement/verdict, such as past and future medical expenses, lost wages, decreased earning capacity, physical therapy, pain and suffering, and more.
Like most places, Arizona has a statute of limitations regarding personal injury claims. The statute of limitations may vary depending on your injury—consult with one of our experienced attorneys and file your claim ASAP to ensure that you’re eligible for compensation.
Spine injury symptoms can vary from person to person. Some of the most common include pain and pressure in the back, head or neck, fatigue, decreased coordination, paralysis, numbness in the extremities, and so on.
Spine injuries can be serious. Even if you don’t feel hurt immediately following your accident, you should still visit a medical professional to make sure you have no complications. The sooner, the better.
Hurt in Arizona? We’re here to help. We proudly serve and represent hurt victims all across Arizona in Phoenix, Queen Creek, San Tan Valley, Chandler, Flagstaff, Paradise Valley, Glendale, Gilbert, Mesa, Scottsdale, Peoria, and beyond.
