Why Hire a Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer?
Spinal Cord Injuries Are Serious
Injuries to the spongy discs, vertebrae, or ligaments within the spine often result in systemic complications like paraplegia or quadriplegia. These injuries can forever change the lives of victims and their families.
You May Be Owed Compensation
Unfortunately, spinal cord injuries are often the result of someone else's negligence. In fact, 46 percent of spinal cord injuries are caused by car accidents, while other potential causes include workplace accidents, slip-and-fall accidents, or surgical mistakes. If your loved one suffered a spinal cord injury because of someone else's negligence, the law allows you to recover compensation for several different types of damages.

$3.8 Million Spinal Injury Settlement
Our client seriously injured his spinal cord while sledding on another man's property. The injury resulted in permanent loss of function and required surgery to repair the spinal cord. Our client reasonably believed that unsafe conditions at the property were to blame for his injury, and our Bellevue lawyers agreed. Matt and Liz Quick met with the property owner's insurance company in mediation, and they agreed to settle for $3.8 million.
"Thank you Liz for believing in my case!"
"Liz and her team worked tirelessly to win a great jury verdict for me! Liz worked up my case for a couple of years while I treated for my brain injury and when the insurance company would not pay what they should have, she and her team fought hard at a jury trial and got me a verdict that exceeded the insurance company's policy limits. Thank you Liz for believing in my case!" Client review posted on avvo.com
Time Is Limited
After an injury to the spinal cord, the injured or their family members have a limited amount of time to file a claim.
Spinal Cord Injuries Are Very Serious
When a spinal cord injury occurs, victims may lose sensation in their extremities and the ability to control muscle movement. In severe cases, victims may sustain paralysis in the limbs, pelvic organs, or trunk. The location of the injury on the spinal cord will impact the muscles affected and the extent of damage.
If you have sustained a spinal cord injury, you may experience symptoms immediately or they may be delayed by days or weeks. As such, if you have been in an accident, you should promptly seek medical treatment to protect your longterm health and wellbeing.
"Thank you, Brad Fulton."
"B. Fulton assisted in one of the most traumatic times a family can go through. Brad went above and beyond for our family and son. We consider his expertise and attention to detail the core definition of dedicated counsel. 15 yrs later we are still getting advice and would always be our #1 recommendation. Thank you Brad Fulton for going above your call of duty in our time of need and being more of a family friend than legal counsel." Client review on avvo.com
The Importance of Expert Testimony
At our practice in Bellevue, WA, we understand the need to have expert testimony in a spinal cord injury case. In order to successfully argue for compensation for any of the damages mentioned above, experts in a variety of subjects need to submit statements validating the extent of the injury, the therapies required for complete recovery, and other factors relevant to the case.
Fortunately, our personal injury attorneys have extensive resources and a vast network of doctors, chiropractors, and psychiatrists who can testify in court on our clients' behalf. Professional medical testimony can strengthen your case by establishing liability for medical malpractice and other acts of negligence, helping us to fight for maximum compensation for your injuries.

Frequently Asked Questions
Has a spinal injury caused by a vehicle accident, medical malpractice, or another act of negligence placed your family's future in jeopardy? Don't wait any longer to reach out to injury attorneys with a track record of achieving justice on behalf of injured clients—there is simply too much at stake.
We understand that while you are waiting to meet with one of our attorneys, you probably have many questions about our services and how we can help. Please take a moment to explore these answers to frequently asked questions to help prepare you for your consultation:
I think my loved one may be partially responsible for the accident that caused the injury. Do we stand a chance at collecting?
Yes. In Washington, the courts follow the principle of comparative negligence. That means that if your loved one is determined to be 10% responsible for the accident, they may be eligible to collect restitution for 90% of their losses.
What should I bring to my consultation?Bring every piece of information you have gathered about your case. That includes auto accident photos, receipts for medical expenses, medical records, and anything else relating to the injury.
I suspect my spinal injury is someone else's fault, but I'm not certain. Should I still consult an injury attorney?
Absolutely. During a free consultation, we can examine the known details of your injury and determine if you have a case. We have relationships with many experts who can help determine exactly who is responsible for your losses.
The insurance company representing the responsible party reached out with a settlement offer that I'm happy with. Should I take it?
No—speak to a personal injury lawyer first. Their offer may sound fair, but it's unlikely that it will actually cover the costs of coping with the lifelong effects of a spinal injury. We will calculate the amount you truly need, and as your personal injury lawyers, we won't settle for anything less.
