Spinal Cord Injury Accident Lawyers - Experience You Can Trust!

Our spinal cord injury lawyers and law offices provide expert personal injury legal services for those who suffer any severe neck or back spinal cord injury accident, due to car, truck, motorcycle, pedestrian, fall, premise liability and other accidents in Los Angeles, the San Fernando Valley and throughout all of California.

When a serious spinal cord injury accident occurs to ones neck or back, it is normal for the victim, and the family of the victim, to fall into a state of shock and not know what to do. This initial period is often a very critical time in obtaining necessary medical care and legal assistance, including in preserving evidence to help the injured person and family obtain the monetary recovery necessary to fully compensate for all their injuries, medical expenses, loss of earnings and other damages. Many just do not know what to do, but our experienced personal injury accident attorneys and legal team can help you now. We even offer an absolutely FREE consultation and there is NO fee until we win.

The spinal cord is very susceptible to serious injuries. The spinal cord is a long, thin, tube of nerves, tissue and cells that extends from the brain, down the neck to the low back. A spinal cord injury occurs when there is damage to the spinal cord from trauma, loss of its normal blood supply, or compression from tumor or infection. If you or someone you care about sustained a spinal cord injury in any car or other accident, please seek immediate medical care and contact us now for a FREE consultation.

Our office has more than 45 years experience handling spinal cord, brain, neck, back and other injury cases in Los Angeles, the San Fernando Valley, Ventura, Orange, San Bernardino and throughout all of California. We help injured victims obtain the medical care they need and the financial recovery they deserve. We offer a FREE consultation and there is NO fee on injury claims until you WIN!

Unlike some other parts of your body, the spinal cord does not have the ability to repair itself if it is damaged. Thus, immediate medical care is essential. There are approximately 10,000 new cases of spinal cord injury each year in the United States. For some reason they are most common in white males. Specifically, 80% of spinal cord injuries occur in males, and 2/3 occur in whites. Most injuries occur in patients 16–30 years of age.

The most common cause of spinal cord injury is trauma. Nearly half of the injuries are caused by motor vehicle accidents including car accidents, motorcycle accidents and truck collisions. Other types of trauma include the following:

  • Falls from heights;
  • Violence including assault and battery; and
  • Sporting injuries, such as while playing football, soccer and basketball

The symptoms of spinal cord injury depend on where the spinal cord is injured and whether or not the injury is complete or incomplete. In incomplete injuries, patients have some remaining function of their bodies below the level of injury, while in complete injuries they have no function below the level of injury.

Therefore, if you are suffering from any of these symptoms as a result of injury it is important to take immediate action:

  • Weakness or complete loss of muscle function
  • Loss of sensation in the body below the level of injury
  • Loss of control of the bowels and bladder
  • Loss of normal sexual function
  • Difficulty breathing, coughing or clearing secretions from your lungs
  • Pain or an intense stinging sensation caused by damage to the nerve fibers in your spinal cord

We will fight to obtain the compensation that you deserve, including all damages allowed under California law for all spinal cord injuries suffered, such as the following

  1. All past and future medical, hospital, physical therapy, psychological, dental and cosmetic charges, including for scar revisions when needed (often with no payment due until your case is resolved—ask our attorneys to explain);
  2. All past and future loss of earnings and also all time lost at work, even if paid for it under sick leave, vacation time or other benefits as the responsible party should not benefit by the benefits you earned and may have used up;
  3. Loss of enjoyment of life and activities you lost and missed out on;
  4. All past and future pain, suffering, emotional distress and inconvenience;
  5. And any and all other appropriate damages permitted under California law.

We will help you obtain the medical care you need and obtain the financial recovery that you deserve. We understand that spinal cord injuries can be very painful and traumatizing. Calling the right California personal injury attorney can help you obtain the justice you deserve.

Client Reviews
You guys did a great job in settling my case! Hope you all do well and prosper. Thank you for a job well done. Jackie C.
We had two prior attorneys who were unable to settle our car accident case. We then hired Gary and Robert Walch and they not only got us both great settlements, but personally spent time with us explaining everything clearly. We couldn't be happier. Thank you! A.M. and M.A.
Dear Gary, I just want to thank you for working so hard on my case! I know at times we were a bit difficult, but you did a great job. I thank you and your son for good results. I will pass your number on to any one that I run across who may need a PI attorney! I send you warm regards. Julie B.
Dear Gary, I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate all your efforts on my behalf. The car accident was a very traumatizing experience for me. But knowing that I could trust you and your son, Robert, helped alleviate my fears and worries. Carmella C.
Thank you for all of your hard work and thank you for making it so easy over e-mail for me. I'm a busy working mom of an Autistic 5 year old son and you guys were great. I will definitely recommend your services to family and friends. Edna G.
