This post concludes and recaps our series on the handling of back and spine injury cases in Austin, Texas. We decided to write on this topic due to the fact that many victims do not know how to proceed after a serious accident. This is understandable given that one is worried about their future and may not necessarily be thinking about the legal system. It is important to understand, however, that counsel can assist with protecting your future interests. If you have been the victim of such an accident then contact our office today to speak with an attorney.
We have addressed several topics over our recent articles. Issues we have analyzed include:
- What to expect while treating for back injuries
- Determining damages for a spine injury
- The need for experts in back injury cases
- Third-party liability for construction related back injuries
These are important topics for multiple reasons. First, one must understand that cases involving a serious injury will not typically be resolved immediately. A victim’s future prognosis must be reasonably ascertainable in order to calculate future losses. Second, when calculating those losses it will be necessary to include future medical care as well as future lost earnings. Third, proving such damages requires the use of vocational, medical, and rehabilitative experts. Finally, it is not uncommon for construction workers to suffer serious back injuries which fall outside of the “worker’s comp” system.
If you have suffered a serious back injury then it is important that you retain a personal injury attorney with the resources necessary to see your case through to completion. Injury lawyers will be responsible for paying the upfront costs associated with expert witnesses, investigators, and other litigation expenses. In a serious injury case these costs can be high and retaining a firm with significant backing can ensure that your case is handled properly from beginning to end. Our Austin attorneys pride themselves on providing personalized service while having substantial resources at their disposal. Contact us today to schedule an initial consultation.
