Spinal Cord Injury Claims in Texas
Injuries to the neck, back, or spinal cord are often devastating and can even be life-threatening. Too often, however, medical professionals, insurance companies, and those you rely on most for help try to undervalue the severity of a spinal cord injury. Just because you cannot see it doesn't mean your pain is any less real.

What to Do After a Spinal Cord Injury
Often, when a person suffers a spinal cord injury, they need emergency medical attention. They will also likely require extensive care and ongoing treatments, ranging from surgeries to rehabilitative therapy. For victims and their families, the cost of medical care—compounded by lost wages and immense pain and suffering—can be an extremely difficult burden to bear.
After you or a loved one suffers a spinal cord injury, it is important that you reach out to a personal injury attorney. You could be entitled to financial compensation for your medical bills, lost income, and other economic and non-economic damages. However, the insurance company will likely dispute your claim. These are typically high-value cases, and the insurance company has a vested interest in paying out as little as possible.
An attorney can help you fight back against the insurance company’s efforts to devalue or deny your claim. At Maloney Law Group, P.L.L.C., our legal team can handle every detail of your case, from gathering supporting evidence to negotiating a settlement to preparing for trial. Our goal is to allow you to focus on getting the medical care and support you need while we handle the rest.
This injury should not be your burden to bear alone. Maloney Law Group, P.L.L.C. can help you recover the compensation you need for medical bills, ongoing treatment, occupational limitations, pain, suffering, and the irreversible changes to your quality of life.

How Do Spinal Cord Injuries Happen & Who Is Responsible?
Sadly, most spinal cord injuries are preventable. When others’ negligent or wrongful conduct causes devastating accidents and injuries, those at fault can be held legally responsible for victims’ resulting damages.
Some of the most common causes of spinal cord injuries include:
- Car, motorcycle, truck, and other motor vehicle accidents
- Falls, including slip and fall accidents
- Sports and recreation-related accidents
- Diving accidents
- Assault, gunshot wounds, stab wounds, and other acts of violence
- Bicycle and pedestrian accidents
If you believe another person or party’s negligence played a role in your accident or your loved one’s spinal cord injury, you may have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit. Our legal team at Maloney Law Group, P.L.L.C. can investigate your claim and determine if you have a viable case. We have brought successful cases against negligent motorists, property owners, product manufacturers, and others.
Keep a Record of Your Symptoms
Some symptoms of a spinal cord injury reflect a very serious and lasting problem, yet they are not always identified immediately after an accident. Pay attention to how you are feeling and write down a journal of your symptoms. Even things like headaches can be indicative of a bigger issue. A thorough record can play an important role in helping you collect compensation for your injury.
At our firm, we seek financial compensation not only for our clients’ immediate losses but for their future damages, as well. By keeping a record of your symptoms, you can put yourself in the best possible position to recover a settlement or verdict that takes all of your current and future losses into account.
