The legal assistance you need after a serious back injury

Spinal injuries can have a dramatic effect on the lives of victims and their families.

At Fox & Farmer, Attorneys at Law, we’re passionate about helping you find some comfort during your difficult time by seeking compensation to cover your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. We’ve practiced law in Knoxville for more than 25 years, and we have the experience you need to work toward a positive outcome.

The different types of spinal and back injuries

Back and spinal injuries can occur in any number of scenarios, including car accidents, slip and fall accidents, workplace accidents, and sports injuries. Regardless of how the injury happened, there is a significant danger that comes with these injuries. Many people who suffer a spinal cord injury see drastic changes in their lifestyle for at least a short amount of time, and often much longer than that. The worst spinal injuries could lead to paralysis or other lifelong conditions that require significant treatment and ongoing care.

Some of the most catastrophic back and spinal injuries include:

  • Paralysis
  • Tetraplegia
  • Anterior cord syndrome
  • Central cord syndrome
  • Posterior cord syndrome
  • Brown-Sequard syndrome
  • Cauda equina lesion
  • Paraplegia

Can I pursue compensation after a back injury?

If you or a loved one has experienced a back or spinal injury but already has a pre-existing condition, you may still be eligible to receive compensation through a personal injury claim. The most likely scenario is that you would receive compensation for any increases in your medical bills, rather than all the medical attention you need. To do so, you would need to demonstrate the severity of your condition, the medical treatment you’ve received and the fact that the injury has kept you from earning income for you and the people who depend on you.

As your personal injury lawyer, we take pride in investigating every single detail of a case, from how you suffered the injury to the potential actions that led to it. After your accident, don’t hesitate to speak with a lawyer you can depend on in East Tennessee.
