Spinal cord injuries can transform your quality of life in seconds. As you recover (or adapt to your new life), you might have problems attending work, supervising your children, and performing basic household tasks. During this challenging time, you may wonder whether you have legal options.
A Dallas spinal cord injury lawyer will do everything possible to secure what you’re owed. Whether you suffered harm in a collision, fall, or another instance, we’re here to help. D. Miller & Associates, PLLC™ is ready to listen to your story now.
You Have a Limited Time to Seek Damages Under Texas Law
Texas law notes that you generally have two years to file an injury lawsuit. Your filing deadline begins based on multiple factors, including when you suffered harm or discovered your injury. You cannot file a lawsuit outside of the two-year filing period.
When you partner with a spinal cord injury lawyer, they can manage your case’s deadlines and everything else it entails.
Recoverable Damages Through a Claim or Lawsuit
We want to secure everything you need to help you reach maximum medical improvement. Financial recovery in your case may include:
- Healthcare expenses, such as assistive mobility devices
- Modifications to your home (such as widened doorways or lowered counters)
- Transportation costs
- Childcare expenses
- Lost income, bonuses, and tips
- Loss of future earning capacity
You may pursue other losses than those listed here. We will determine what you’re owed based on your case’s details.
We Help People Injured in These Situations
We extend a helping hand to claimants who have suffered harm in these situations:
- Collisions. Some people suffer injuries in car accidents. Striking one’s head against a steering wheel or slamming one’s back against a seat can injure the spine.
- On-the-job accidents. You may have suffered a spinal cord injury at work––especially if you perform manual labor. In this situation, you could also pursue damages through a lawsuit and workers’ compensation claim.
- Medical malpractice. A healthcare provider could have made an error that injured your spine. For instance, they might have damaged a nerve during surgery.
- Premises liability incidents. If you suffered harm on another party’s property (like through a fall), you can hold the property owner responsible for your losses.
Don’t worry if you don’t see your situation listed above. We still want to serve you.

What Should I Do After Suffering a Spinal Cord Injury?
The following measures could promote your chances of recovering what you need:
Seek Medical Care
We need statements from your healthcare provider that attest to your condition’s severity. Visiting a doctor also ties your injury to the accident that harmed you.
Keep Documentation of Your Losses
Any receipts, invoices, or billing statements can support your right to damages. Also, we urge you to keep records of your doctors’ appointments, communications with the insurance company, and other related matters.
Refer the Claims Adjuster to Your Lawyer in Dallas
Even if you have a lawyer, this may not stop the claims adjuster from contacting you directly. They may ask you to give a recorded statement or offer less than you need. When you have a lawyer from our team advocating for you, you don’t even have to talk to the insurer’s representatives. All you need to do is focus on getting better.
