Virtually any type of accident can cause a neck, back, or spinal cord injury — and our respected Louisiana firm has stepped in to handle a wide range of claims. Handling a spinal cord injury case requires extensive knowledge of the mechanism of spinal cord injuries, the treatment options, the damage model, and of the catastrophic impact a traumatic injury has on a person's self-esteem, livelihood and family.  Locke Meredith, Sean Fagan & Associates' track record of success includes numerous multimillion-dollar recoveries for victims of serious injuries caused by someone’s negligence.

We know you may be hurting and panicked — as well as overwhelmed by worry over your family’s financial future — and we are honored by the opportunity to help. If you want to explore legal options for recovering compensation, please request a free consultation today.

Our legal team is dedicated to investigating your accident thoroughly and holding liable parties accountable through settlement negotiations or in court. We want to know if an insurance company is denying coverage, giving you the runaround, or attempting to settle your claim unfairly.

Protecting Your Financial Future After a Disabling Accident


On one level, neck and back injuries are one of the most common reasons people miss work. On another, a car accident or motorcycle wreck, fall on a construction site, or other catastrophic events can cause neck, back and spinal cord injuries with consequences ranging from:

  • Chronic pain requiring ongoing therapy or surgery, to

  • Paralysis (paraplegia or quadriplegia) that may call for lifetime financial support

Damage to the spinal cord (neck or back) causes one of the most devastating injuries a person can sustain. Spinal cord injuries can be complete or incomplete and can result in quadriplegia (tetraplegia) or paraplegia. These injuries usually render the victim totally disabled from any gainful employment, and in need of 24/7 attendant or custodial care, as well as other necessary future medical expenses and related benefits.

Proper diagnosis and treatment of a neck, back, or spinal cord injury are critical to achieving maximum possible improvement. The doctors and other medical professionals we rely on have earned our confidence both for quality of care and their attention to detail in documenting your injuries. While respecting your preferences, we strive to help keep you out of any medical “referral maze” and ensure your case for compensation is sound, whether you have suffered:


  • Severe “whiplash” in a car crash

  • Complex disc, facet joint, or nerve injuries in an on-the-job accident or vehicle collision

  • A long-term or permanently disabling spinal cord injury in any type of serious accident, from a car or boating accident to a helicopter crash or explosion

Our Baton Rouge, Louisiana spinal cord injury attorneys have also represented victims whose injuries were made much worse by inadequate assessment or treatment (medical malpractice), or by negligent handling of the victim after the injury was sustained.

Our attorneys are proven negotiators and trial lawyers whose work in personal injury litigation is complemented by knowledge of Social Security disability and workers’ compensation claims. To take a positive step for your future and your family — without incurring any added financial burden or risk — please call contact us today.
