Knowledge · Experience · A Record Of Results
A spinal cord injury can cause limited movement, loss of the use of limbs or paralysis. It can also cause problems throughout the body, such as breathing difficulties, bowel obstructions, infections, pressure sores and blood clots. Any or all of these complications could require intensive, lifelong care.
Our attorneys have experience investigating the circumstances of an injury to identify all potentially liable parties and all available insurance coverage. We will use our years of experience and detailed knowledge of spinal cord injury cases to determine the appropriate compensation you should receive.
To calculate lifelong care expenses, certain experts must be consulted. We employ life care planners who can properly estimate the cost of needed medical supplies such as catheters, wheelchairs and adaptive equipment, and the cost of making your home handicapped-accessible. We often consult with economists to determine the amount of your lost wages and any reduction in your earning capacity. Using this information and the opinions of medical experts who can evaluate your medical records, we will draft a comprehensive package of compensation to cover your losses and give you financial stability.
Our goal is to obtain this amount through aggressive negotiations with the liable parties and with all relevant insurers. If we cannot reach a settlement we believe is in your best interests, we are fully prepared to proceed all the way to trial. We have a track record of positive verdicts and settlements we have obtained on behalf of our clients.
