Your spinal cord carries information and signals from the brain to the rest of the body, and vice versa. When something damages that pathway, that information is cut off, leaving you paralyzed, fully or partially, from the point of the injury. That can be devastating, and it can mean significant life changes for your future.
Recovering from a spinal injury isn’t easy, but the lawyers at Brown Chiari LLP can help ease the burden by helping you to get compensated and make your road to recovery a bit easier. Let a Rochester spinal injury lawyer represent you in court and help you get the funds you need for your recovery.
Damages Due after a Rochester Spinal Injury
A spinal injury can take a massive toll on your health, finances, and well-being. This toll can be costly, making it difficult to recover. Your damages should cover these costs, but you may not have the tools and resources to determine what damages you’re owed, and how much you’re due for them.
That’s where a lawyer can step in. If you’re struggling to determine what damages you’re due, both economic and non-economic damages, your lawyer can review the details of your claim and choose your best options.

Time Limits to File a Rochester Spinal Injury Claim
When you’re hurt by another Rochester resident’s actions, you may be eligible for a lawsuit to receive compensation for your suffering. However, you only have a limited time to file. If you fail to act within New York’s statute of limitations, your case may be dismissed by the judge. That leaves you with no compensation to to help your recovery.
In New York, you’ll need to file a claim within three years of the accident. In some cases, such as an injury to a minor, you may have more or less time to file, so be sure to confirm your time limits with your attorney. Because this can be difficult, especially if some time has already passed, you may need a lawyer to help you gather evidence and file a claim on time.
Fortunately, acting quickly can help your claim succeed. Evidence can be lost or destroyed over time, and acting quickly can help you preserve the evidence you need to prove you suffered a spinal injury because another Rochester resident was negligent with your safety.
