If you or someone you love has suffered a spinal cord injury in Phoenix or the or the surrounding area in Arizona due to another’s negligence, Cruz & Associates’ aggressive attorneys can fight for maximum compensation. Injuries to the spinal cord can permanently affect the central nervous system, resulting in loss of signals between the brain and body. The forces in an auto accident, fall, violent attack, and many other situations can be too much for the delicate nerves and disks in the spinal cord to withstand.

Top Three Reasons to Hire a Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer from Cruz & Associates

Spine injuries can cause lifelong paralysis, disabling the victim. If you’re someone living with a spine injury, you likely have thousands of dollars in medical costs in your past and future. You will need various forms of medical care and assistance throughout your life, such as home and vehicle modifications, not to mention the immense physical pain and emotional suffering that arise from serious spine injuries. If someone else’s negligence caused your injury, you shouldn’t be responsible for these devastating medical bills. This is why you should retain one of our experienced attorneys. Our lawyers can help in innumerable ways, but here are three:

  1. Professional insurance settlement negotiation. Insurance companies might contact you as soon as the day of your accident. An insurance representative from an at-fault driver, an employer, or other party might try to convince you to record a statement or accept a settlement, but it may not be in your best interests. Instead, contact us. We can take over communications with insurance companies so that the insurer does not take advantage of you. Professional negotiators can sometimes make a big difference in the size of your settlement.
  2. Timely and accurate claim filing. In Arizona, you have two years from the date of your accident to file a claim before the statute of limitations expires. If you fail to file your claim on time, you will most likely lose your chance to file. With help from Cruz & Associates, you don’t miss a deadline and will file the correct way the first time.
  3. Maximum compensation. Spinal cord injuries can be extremely expensive injuries. We have proven results under our belt, with six- and seven-figure settlements and judgment awards we’ve secured for our clients. For an injury as catastrophic and life-changing as one to the spine, you need lawyers who have experience fighting for the most compensation possible. We are those lawyers in Phoenix.
