Salt Lake City Truck Accident Back Injury Lawyer
After suffering a serious back injury in an accident with an 18-wheeler, you need a Salt Lake City truck accident back injury lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates to represent you and ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve. Our injury lawyers have extensive experience and can help you receive as much money as possible for your injury claim.
You can anticipate that both the trucking company and their insurance company will have an attorney representing them. This makes it critical to have an experienced and knowledgeable attorney in your corner as well.
Find Out if Your Injury Qualifies for Compensation
During your free consultation, we will discuss your injuries and how they have impacted your life. This information will allow us to determine both whether you have a case and the amount of compensation you may be entitled to. There are several types of back injuries you can seek compensation for:
- Slipped Vertebra – Also known as spondylolysis, this condition causes the vertebra to slip back and forth or over another bone. It can be incredibly painful and may even require surgery to correct.
- Nerve Damage – If one of your nerves became compressed in your truck accident, you could have cervical radiculopathy and a resulting loss of sensation in your arms, neck, or shoulders, along with weakness and pain.
- Partial or Full Paralysis – Whether paraplegia or quadriplegia, paralysis will have a direct impact on your life both today and well into the future. With a decrease in your mobility, you will need additional care and have financial expenses associated with this condition for the rest of your life. The party responsible for your truck accident should have to pay for these additional costs.
- And More – You may be entitled to compensation for any accident-related injuries you have suffered.
In order to qualify for compensation, your back injury needs to have been caused by your truck accident and that accident needs to be the fault of someone else. Legally, the negligent party and their insurance company can be held financially responsible for the tractor-trailer crash.
To prove the other party’s negligence, we will need to gather evidence and build a strong case in your favor. You can assist with this process by providing any pictures, witness information, and associated medical and financial records you may have.
Recovering from a Back Injury
Your Salt Lake City truck accident back injury lawyer will ensure that you receive both the medical care you require in order to recover and the financial compensation to pay for it.
Back injuries can take years to fully recover from and may require ongoing medical care, physical therapy, massage, chiropractic care, and even surgeries. If the insurance company is trying to avoid paying for any of these items, we can help.
Providing for Your Long-Term Care
If you have suffered paralysis due to your truck accident, you may also need money to hire a caregiver, retrofit your home and vehicle, and pay for your long-term medical care. By working with us, we will ensure that you do not have to accept an insufficient settlement offer.
