Spine injuries often result in permanent paralysis or long-term disability. They usually result from motor vehicle accidents or other instances of third-party negligence. There is no such thing as a minor spinal cord injury. Many victims will never walk again and must depend on a wheelchair for the rest of their lives. Further, spine injury victims are often young and will require expensive medical care for the rest of their lives.
If this has happened to you or a loved one, contact a personal injury attorney at Valiente Mott. We handle personal injury claims in Nevada (Reno, Las Vegas) and Utah (Salt Lake City). With a thorough understanding of the law and fierce compassion for our injured clients, we fight for justice and a fair settlement. Contact our spine injury lawyer today for a free consultation.
Nevada Spine Injury Claims
Many spine injuries are catastrophic—the victim will never fully recover and will always suffer some impairment. A Nevada spine injury lawyer from our firm will investigate your case to determine which parties are liable. For example, if a truck accident resulted in a spine injury, liability may extend beyond the truck driver and trucking company to a cargo company that loaded the truck improperly.
In Nevada, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit is two years. Therefore, it is crucial to hire a spine injury lawyer as soon as possible so that an investigation may begin and ensure that critical evidence does not vanish.
A Las Vegas spine injury lawyer at Valiente Mott works hard to get defendants to pay the fair value of our clients’ claims. While most claims are settled, we do not hesitate to go to trial if the insurance company does not agree to a reasonable settlement. Our address in Las Vegas is 700 S 7th St, Las Vegas, NV 89101.
Always obtain legal advice before agreeing to any settlement regarding your spine injury. Insurance companies want to settle for as little as possible. However, once you agree to a settlement, you cannot go back and change it, even if it turns out your injuries are worse than initially believed. A Reno spine injury lawyer protects your rights while working with insurance companies. If you’re in Reno, our office is located at 5470 Kietzke Ln., Suite 300. Reno, Nevada 89511.
Utah Spine Injury Claims
In Utah, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim is four years from the date of the accident. While that is one of the longest statutes of limitations in the country, getting an investigation started as soon as possible is still imperative. A Utah spine injury attorney at Valiente Mott can help you receive the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Types of Spine Injuries
The two primary types of spine injuries are complete and incomplete. A complete spinal cord injury causes paralysis below the injury level. It may cause quadriplegia, paralysis of all four limbs, or paraplegia, paralysis of the body’s lower half. The brain and body are no longer communicating in these areas.
There is still some function and brain/body communication occurring with an incomplete spinal cord injury.
Spine Injury Compensation
Compensation, or damages, for a spine injury may include:
- Medical expenses, current, and future
- Lost wages
- Loss of future earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
