Without question the spinal cord is one of the critical parts of our nervous system. The spine provides support and protection for the spinal cord, which carries messages from the brain to the rest of the body. Any injury to the spine will have serious repercussions throughout the body. If you have suffered a spine injury in an accident, you know the pain and anguish that can accompany this injury. The attorneys of Freedland Harwin Valori, P are able to represent your interests.
Common Causes of Spine Injuries
Motor vehicle accidents are the most common cause of spinal injuries. The sudden motions in an auto accident can overstress the spine leading to injury. The neck is especially vulnerable in an auto accident, which can lead to injuries ranging from bulging or herniated discs to full paralysis.
Falls from unsafe walkways or flooring often result in spinal injuries. Landing at an awkward angle or when part of your spine lands on a hard object can be particularly devastating. While the spine has some range of movement, when the body exceeds or stresses that range, an injury is frequently the result.
Workplace injuries to the spine are another of the most common causes of workers’ compensation claims. Falls from scaffolds or ladders can damage the spine, resulting in months or years of rehabilitation before the injured person is able to return to work. Heavy lifting or even overexertion of the back can damage the delicate connections between vertebrae in the spine, resulting in a painful recovery.
When a surgeon or medical care professional’s inexperience, negligence, or carelessness cause damage to someone’s spine, that person may also look to a medical malpractice lawsuit for compensation. When neglect leads to a spine injury, the injury’s effects may be a lifetime of pain and difficulty.
Expenses and Damages
Corporate attorneys and insurance lawyers are often eager to offer you a settlement for your financial losses, pain, and suffering, but it’s wise to speak with an attorney before accepting such an offer. Their goal is to pay you a small portion of what you would otherwise be entitled to recover.
Examples of economic damages you may suffer include:
- Medical expenses
- Lost work earnings past and future
- Costs to modify your home after a serious spinal injury
- Medical equipment such as wheelchairs
- In home care from nurses or home assistants
- Costs to modify a vehicle if your injury makes ordinary driving impossible
In addition to the measurable costs of your injury, you may also receive compensation for your pain and suffering. Florida generally places no cap on compensation for pain and suffering in most cases. Spine injuries are often extremely painful, and the courts may award significant compensation for the pain you have had to endure.

I met Dan when I was in therapy and he came and right away it felt like a family member visiting you, a connection, like a brother. He’s been on both sides of the fence. He’s represented the hospitals and the doctors, and then he jumped over to the other side. It is a fantastic group, it was like Bell Belichick leading the team. They changed my life and still check on me. I recommend FHV to anybody and they thank me.
I met Dan about a year ago. He never made me feel that it was about the money. When he spoke with me he was asking how Bill (my brother) was and if he was doing better. He made me feel like family and always asked if I was alright. That means a lot. Everyday is something new and I challenge for my brother. I would recommend [FHV] to everybody because I really believe that they’re helping from their hearts… from a really good place.
For anyone to represent anyone for 5 years and take the time to do it, not once just “get it out of the way” and “get it done with”. It was about what was best for Hunter and our family. It was about the case and the people.
