Spinal Cord Injury Attorneys
Our personal injury attorneys have represented persons experiencing all nature of spinal cord injuries, including catastrophic injuries resulting in complete and partial paralysis. Our expert witnesses and consultants help us demonstrate to a jury the compensation which will be needed to adapt the victim’s environment to his special needs, replace his earning capacity, and compensate for the intangible, human costs arising from the spinal cord injury.
A spinal cord injury is one of the most devastating injuries that can befall a person. Its effects can be immediate and catastrophic, resulting in:
- Quadriplegic paralysis (loss of use of arms and legs and even the ability to breathe on one’s own)
- Paraplegia (loss of use of legs and lower body, including bowel and bladder control and sexual function)
- Severe, ongoing pain
Even with less severe injuries, a person may experience impaired movement, ongoing weakness in legs, and chronic pain. Clients also face medical bills as well as costs for rehabilitative care, changes to their home for improved accessibility and transportation needs such as wheelchairs, specially outfitted vans, home access ramps and other quality of life issues.
