Injuries to the spine can occur due to a variety of causes. These may include car accidents, motorcycle accidents, trucking accidents, injuries which occur on a bicycle, or as the result of a slip and fall. Such incidents lead to herniated discs, damaged vertebrae, paralysis, and more. It is important to hold the defendant accountable if your injury was the result of their negligence. Contact us for legal representation to obtain the compensation required.
The immediate step in a spinal injury case is for the victim to receive the care they need. Part of this care will include determining the extent of the injury, developing a treatment plan, and forecasting the extent of future harm. In addition to the treating physicians, it may be necessary to employ medical experts to present a victim’s legal case in court. It will also be necessary to determine the amount of financial damage done by the accident. This will include lost wages, future lost earnings, and other expenses incurred. Vocational rehabilitation and economic experts will likely be necessary in this area. Once one’s damages can be reasonably calculated, then a demand for payment will be sent to the negligent party’s insurance company. Should the matter not settle, then it will be necessary to initiate a lawsuit.
Dan Christensen is an Austin area personal injury lawyer aggressively representing the victims of spinal injury. Once retained, we will immediately contact insurance carriers so that they will deal with us directly. We will then work with experts to determine the amount of your damages while ensuring that you get the care that you need. Once a demand is sent to the insurance carrier, then our office will begin settlement negotiations. If settlement cannot be reached,we will file a Petition in Court to initiate a lawsuit. Discovery will be conducted so that liability may be proven in the event that the insurance carrier is denying fault for a car accident, a trucking accident, or other types of injuries. We will ensure that you are prepared for trial and that you know what to expect as the process moves forward. We understand that you are facing a serious situation.

Our firm understands that lawyers have a bad reputation. Much of this reputation comes from law firms failing to remain in contact with their clients. Our office returns phone calls and e-mails within one business day and our attorneys regularly provide clients with their cell phone numbers. We make ourselves available to answer all questions and take steps to keep those we represent in the loop. Additionally, our lawyers will explain complicated legal terms and concepts in a clear and concise manner that you can understand.
Our firm is also founded on the idea of providing quality service. Dan is a former prosecutor and military member with over twenty years of legal experience. He started the firm with the idea that all are entitled to the utmost respect. We pride ourselves on providing a “small firm feel” while having the financial resources of a large firm which, in turn, allow us to go the distance in serious injury cases. We are ready to assist you.
