What Exactly Is a Spinal Injury?

These types of injuries occur when nerves, disks, or cells in the spinal cord are damaged in a serious injury. Many injuries to the spinal cord occur due to auto accidents, slips, and other serious accidents resulting in injuries running the gamut from pinched nerves to paralysis.

To make things worse, medical care and ongoing treatment for these injuries can be extremely expensive. Accident victims need to pay for medical bills, medication, rehabilitation, adaptive equipment, and possibly even a caretaker. Much of this becomes further complicated as victims are often unable to continue performing their previous vocations.

The spinal cord injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Richard R. Kennedy do not believe victims of spinal cord injuries should be forced to handle this burden alone. We are committed to doing whatever is legally possible to obtain compensation for these catastrophic personal injuries so you can concentrate on healing and restoring your economic security, pride, and self-respect. 

Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries

  • Car accidents
  • Falls
  • Acts of violence, such as gunshots
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Recreational sports accidents
  • Medical and surgical problems

6 Reasons to Choose Choose Our Spinal Cord Injury Attorneys

We focus on a quality caseload, not on volume. This approach always ensures that we are more prepared than our opponents. This approach also prevents litigation most of the time — our opponents realize early on how serious we are and are often more than willing to settle for fair compensation.


Our law firm has been compassionately and effectively helping clients in the Lafayette and New Iberia areas with personal injuries for over half a century.

Superior Preparedness

We focus on the quality of our caseload, not on the number of cases, which ensures we are more prepared than our opponents. This can prevent lengthy litigation and encourage the defense to settle for fair compensation.


Our injury lawyers will personally handle your case, including aggressively fighting tight-fisted insurance companies so you can get the financial settlement or verdict you deserve. This can allow you and your family to focus on healing and moving forward.

We Work on Contingency

Contingency means clients do not pay us any money upfront for our services. Instead, a reasonable percentage of your financial verdict or settlement will be collected to pay our legal fees. Therefore, we collect nothing should we not earn you financial compensation.

Flexible Availability

Many local law firms limit their availability to weekdays during office hours. Not us. Our legal team will be there for you whenever you need us.

Immediate Legal Services

Our investigation into your case will begin immediately after you retain our services. Time is of the essence because the defense's legal team may begin working to prove their client was not at fault immediately after your injury.
