Miami Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer
Florida Board Certified Experts in Personal Injury Law
The spine is the central location for your peripheral nerve signals, allowing your brain to give orders to the rest of your body. When the spine is damaged, these signals can no longer travel, resulting in paralysis. Spine injuries are often permanent, which is why they are classified as "catastrophic injuries." They completely alter the lives of the injured. Since 1984, Stewart Tilghman Fox Bianchi & Cain, P.A. has helped people with spine injuries fight for the resources they need to move forward. Our firm utilizes more than 150 years of combined experience. In that time, we have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for our clients, giving them what they need to recover from their injuries as much as possible.

Why Are Spine Injuries So Serious?
Spine injuries are serious because of how the affect the people who sustain them. A spine injury can cause significant pain that, in some instances, lasts the rest of a person’s life. Additionally, spine injuries often require extensive medical treatment and invasive surgery. If a person’s spine injuries are serious enough, they might be unable to work and earn the wages needed to pay for living expenses and the cost of care.
When Can a Person File a Spine Injury Claim?
A person can file a lawsuit for a spine injury if theirs was caused by the negligence of another party. No one should have to suffer because of the reckless behavior of a person or a company. Filing a spine injury claim can help a person obtain the compensation and justice that they deserve.
What Can I Recover After a Spine Injury?
Personal injury lawsuits are focused on helping someone earn compensation for hardships caused by their injury. A person can seek compensation for monetary losses such as lost wages, medical bills, and other costs associated with their injury. They also might have the chance to recover punitive damages for their pain and suffering.
