How Our Charlotte Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers Can Help
The devastation of experiencing a spinal cord injury can leave you at a loss for what to do next. The insurance company will likely try to push a quick settlement on you that may not cover the full extent of the injury or the medical care it will require.
In these situations, it is best to have a reputable attorney by your side who is experienced in working with insurance companies and knows how to help make sure you receive the compensation you deserve.
At The Nye Law Group, our Charlotte spinal cord injury lawyers will handle the insurance company for you. We have the resources to fully investigate the circumstances of your injury and to demonstrate the value of your damages. We do this by:
- Working with medical experts to review your medical records and determine the full extent of your injury and how it will impact your life
- Gathering evidence from the incident, including photographs, available videos, witness statements, and police and accident reports
We can also help prepare a life care plan that identifies the costs of providing medical care and housing for an individual with a spinal cord injury.
With an office conveniently located in downtown Charlotte, we are local lawyers ready to assist you. We are just a short drive from the valuable spinal cord injury resources offered by Carolinas Rehabilitation next to the Carolinas Medical Center’s main campus on Blythe Boulevard.

Types of Spinal Cord Injury Cases We Handle
Spinal cord injuries result from damage to the vertebrae, discs and ligaments of the spinal column or the spinal cord, which carries important information from the brain to other parts of the body. If it is crushed, fractured, dislocated or compressed, it can have severe consequences that can lead to paralysis, loss of body function and even death.
How your injury occurred will impact how we handle your case.
Accidents involving cars, motorcycles, trucks, pedestrians and bicyclists are often caused by negligent drivers who fail to follow traffic and safety laws. If your injury was caused by a negligent driver, we will work to demonstrate that the driver breached his or her duty not to cause you harm, which caused you to suffer an injury and damages.
If you slipped and fell on another’s property that was dangerous or poorly maintained, we will gather the necessary evidence to build a premises liability claim if the property manager failed to maintain a safe property.
If a medical professional caused your injury by failing to provide a level of care that someone with similar training in a similar situation would have, you may have a medical malpractice claim. In these cases, our Charlotte medical malpractice attorneys will work with medical experts to examine your medical procedure, the doctor’s actions, witness statements and medical records to determine a link between the doctor’s negligence and your injury.
When a product is poorly designed or lacks appropriate warnings, serious harm often results. Spinal cord injuries from defective products most often occur in car accidents caused by a malfunction. Our team has the resources to build a case against a negligent manufacturer.
In most situations, workers’ compensation will cover injuries that occur at work. Our skilled team can help you through the process to make sure you receive the compensation you deserve. We can also identify any additional forms of compensation you may be entitled.
Acts of violence
If a criminal act, such as a shooting or stabbing, caused your injury, you may have a claim against the at-fault party. Claims involving intentional actions that are willfully malicious may be able to recover punitive damages as a punishment for the at-fault party.
If you believe you may have a case, do not hesitate to schedule a free, no obligation with our Charlotte spinal cord injury lawyers. We will investigate your claim and help you determine the legal option that is in your best interest.

Why Seek Legal Action?
A spinal cord injury can have a traumatic effect on an individual and his or her family. The disabling effects of this type of injury can leave a victim requiring long-term medical care and expensive treatment in addition to potentially losing income.
Filing a personal injury lawsuit may help cover some of these overwhelming expenses and bring a sense of financial stability to your life. While every case is different, some of the most common forms of compensation available include:
- In-home caregivers
- Long-term medical care
- Specialized in-home equipment
- Lost wages
- Physical pain
- Mental suffering
Those who have lost a loved one may also be entitled to additional compensation such as funeral expenses and other damages associated with the death of a loved one.
In rare situations, a court may also award punitive damages if the circumstances of the accident were especially egregious. This type of compensation is meant to punish the at-fault party and prevent others from behaving in a similar way.
Through a thorough examination of your injuries and the evidence in your case, our team of accomplished Charlotte spinal cord injury lawyers will be able to determine the maximum compensation you need. We will then get to work fighting to help you get what you deserve.
