What is a Spinal Cord Injury?
When the spine is fractured, crushed, or dislocated, it often results in permanent nerve damage causing a loss of movement, sensation, or body functions below the site of injury. Other common side effects include:
- Difficulty breathing
- Complete or partial paralysis
- Uncontrollable spasms
- Loss of bladder or bowel control
- Shortened lifespan
Spinal cord injuries not only take a physical toll, but can also lead to emotional pain and suffering. Many victims are permanently in need of a wheelchair and must learn to adapt to a new way of life with the assistance of a family member, loved one, or full-time caregiver. This type of injury can often affect your ability to work, as well as your financial situation, relationships, and overall quality of life.

Successfully Proving Your Case
Our lawyers can file a claim against the individual or business responsible, and immediately begin gathering the evidence necessary to prove that those parties' negligence resulted in your injury and related losses. In order to successfully prove your case, your lawyer must prove that your injury was a result of negligence and not a preexisting issue. During your initial appointment, we will review your records to determine if you have a viable case.
If you have experienced a traumatic spinal cord injury because of another's negligence, you need and deserve compensation. We are committed to helping you collect damages for:
- Loss of income and diminished earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Existing and long-term medical and rehabilitation costs
- Property damage
Because a spinal cord injury can have permanent effects, your compensation may include ongoing healthcare expenses, the cost of motorized wheelchairs and beds, and the cost of modifying and improving your home through measures such as adding access ramps and lifts. Without restitution, these expenses can be financially devastating. With our help, you can concentrate on healing while we pursue the compensation you need.
As we build your case, you can expect that the negligent party's insurance company will attempt to contact you. When this occurs, you should defer all questions to us, since these individuals are acting in their clients' best interests, and will be trying to minimize or discredit your claim.
