Cases involving spinal cord injury are extremely complex and involved, and require a great deal of attorney experience and knowledge on the subject. I have a full time doctor on staff that assists with every case. A spinal cord injury is a catastrophic event, impacting the life of the survivor as well as those of the family. Damages in any catastrophic case can be extensive, and this is no less true in a case involving spinal cord injury. Yet, speak to any seasoned lawyer, and you will find that the challenges associated with trial of a spinal cord injury case can be numerous, and potentially life threatening to the plaintiff.
Lawyers representing individuals rendered quadriplegic or paraplegic as a result of the negligent conduct of others will undoubtedly face a host of issues not encountered in other personal injury actions. Perhaps the most difficult issues to address involve potentially life shortening sequelae, including medical problems such as respiratory impairments (respirator needs), physical impairments (sensory and motor losses), bowel and bladder impairments (suppositories, catheter and bag use), pressure sores (decubitus ulcers, ischemic ulcers, etc.), and often severe depression and other psychosocial impairment.
Like all the cases I take, Spinal Cord Injury cases are handled on a contingency basis with no obligation or fee for the first consultation.
