Spinal Cord Injury
Spinal cord injuries are traumatic and can have long-term debilitating side effects. Your life is
likely to never be the same after one of these catastrophic injuries. And while there are dozens
of ways you can injure your spine, if your accident was preventable and/or caused by someone
else’s actions or inaction, you can be owed legal damages.
Your story matters to us.
Our founding lawyer, Ed Flores, has lived the experience of a loved one with paralysis. One
cannot possibly communicate the anguish and suffering of a paralyzed person and her family
unless one has lived it. That is why a good lawyer will frequent his client’s home and experience
a day in the life of the injured client.
At Flores Law Group, Ed Flores lived that experience for more than 30 years from day zero to the end. He gets it and can communicate this pain. You should not have to suffer a debilitating injury because of someone else’s behavior. If you
have been the victim of a spinal cord injury, you need to contact our law firm to learn what
financial compensation you are entitled to.
What Are Some Accidents That Can Lead to a Spinal Cord Injury?
Your spine is more vulnerable than you might realize, and there are many ways it can become
damaged. Below are a handful of the most common accidents that can lead to a spinal cord
injury that you could seek compensation for.
● Motorcycle accidents
● Automotive accidents
● Being a victim of a DUI
● Slip or fall caused by hazardous conditions or someone else’s negligence
● On-the-job accidents
● Being struck by heavy objects
● Being a victim of assault
● Being attacked with a deadly weapon
What Type of Damages Could I Be Entitled To?
Suffering a spinal cord injury is often extraordinarily traumatizing and can leave the victim with
severe medical and emotional damage.
The physical injuries could require years of surgeries and painful rehabilitation for some people,
while others may experience permanent paralysis. Victims can often also suffer from mental
decline and have severe post-traumatic stress disorder or chronic anxiety and depression.
These are just some of the after-effects spinal injuries might have on the victim.
All of this trauma and misery can mean you are owed a lot of damages from the company or
person responsible for you being harmed.
After your spinal cord injury, you could be entitled to the following damages.
● Past, present, and future medical expenses related to your accident.
● Lost wages if your injuries prevented you from working.
● Pain and suffering if your mental health has declined since your accident.
● Diminished earning capacity if you can no longer earn the same living as before your
● Punitive damages.
● Legal costs.

What Should I Do If The Insurance Company Reaches Out To Me?
An insurer’s only job is to undercut you as much as possible. Insurance companies care about
protecting profits, so they will try to throw you off to avoid a big payout.
Some tactics an insurance company might try include:
● Offer you a quick settlement. They are hoping you will be in an emotional panic after
your accident, and they will try to get you to agree to a quick cash settlement. This
settlement will not be anything close to what you deserve for your injuries.
● They may try to trick you into providing too much information or admitting fault for the
accident. Avoid telling the insurer unnecessary information and never apologize for the
accident or take any blame.
● They will try to pressure you into signing or accepting offers without giving you a chance
to think about what is happening. If you give into this tactic, you may be signing your
rights away for fair compensation.
If an insurance company reaches out to you, tell them that all communications need to go
through your lawyer. And never, ever sign anything or allow yourself to be recorded without your
