A Spinal Cord Injury Marks A Challenging Chapter In Your Life
If you suffered a spinal cord injury (SCI) in a car accident, in a recreational accident or in a surgery gone wrong, you most likely face a difficult path ahead. Our decades of experience and knowledge of the law can help to ease the burden of the difficult journey that may lie ahead.
If your SCI caused paralysis, you may have to deal with the effects of paraplegia or quadriplegia. You may also be at high risk of secondary problems such as urinary tract infections (UTI) and chronic nerve pain (neuropathy). While your medical care providers will help you learn to cope with your changed life circumstances, we are prepared to handle your legal needs so you can focus on your recovery.
Hospitalization, Rehabilitation And Returning Home
Every case is unique, but there are some commonalities for many people recovering from spinal cord injuries. You may require surgery, physical therapy and occupational therapy for some time. You may need costly durable medical equipment and adaptive devices for your new life back at home. You may need help from personal care attendants as you live with disabilities for the foreseeable future. Your closest family member(s) — your parents, spouse or children, perhaps — will need information and help in their new caregiving roles.
Costs will accumulate rapidly. An injury claim or lawsuit can help you pursue compensation from whoever caused the accident that left you with a serious back injury or spinal cord injury. Was it another driver? A property owner? A surgeon? A detailed investigation coordinated by an experienced attorney can help determine the cause of the accident. A knowledgeable attorney will also know where to look for compensation to account for medical bills, lost wage replacement, and pain and suffering.
