Spinal Cord injuries will have a devastating effect on the injured person and their family. The injury will impacts the ability to work, complete daily routines, socialize and be independent. The costs of treatments and making lifestyle adjustments can be staggering and adds to the suffering. If the injury is caused by the actions of another then compensation is just.

SPINAL INJURIES: PARAPLEGIA and QUADRIPLEGIA

VERDICTS  AND SETTLEMENTS

Prior results should not and cannot be relied on to create any expectation about what can be recovered for a client in a subsequent case or considered as a description or characterization of the quality of the firm’s work. The value of every case is determined based on specific factual and legal circumstances.

Financial Compensation is Just.

Paraplegia or Quadriplegia is typically the result of severe spinal injuries. Paraplegia is the paralysis that effects all or part of the trunk, legs and pelvic organs. Quadriplegia, also known as Tetraplegia, means your arms, hands, trunk, legs, and pelvic organs are all affected by the spinal injury. A person who suffers from either will require continuous care. Home modifications, medical expenses, caregiver costs and prescriptions are some of the expenses facing the injured person.

 

A spinal cord injury lawsuit may allow you to recover compensation that will provide for:

 

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Rehabilitation and prescription medications
  • Medical equipment
  • Pain and suffering from lasting physical and emotional stress
  • Lost wages from time away from work and/or the inability to work
  • A victim's loss of life due to injuries: Wrongful death expenses may be filed by the family.

 

The victim of a spinal cord injury, caused by another person’s preventable action or negligence, should not bear the financial burden of the unexpected accident. Compensation for a life altering injury is just.
