Serious spinal cord injuries can be devastating to their victims. These types of injuries are commonly the result of falls, airplane crashes, motor vehicle collisions, and surgical mishaps. Rehabilitation can be a long, painful ordeal, and expensive treatment and health costs can last a lifetime.
The initial medical expenses for treatment of spinal cord injuries can be fairly easy to determine; potential side effects, long-term nerve damage, and the loss in quality of life are not. Because insurance companies often resist paying fair settlements for these types of serious injuries, we support each case with medical expert information on potential health complications and the related costs involved in addressing them. We also work with psychologists to define the mental and emotional impact a spinal cord injury can have in a client’s life.
Spinal cord injuries that result in permanent paralysis may involve horrific, long-term consequences in addition to the obvious disabilities and immobility. Life care plans, future medical and transportation needs, and assessment of future complications that can arise (i.e., bed sores, respiratory infections, and muscle spasticity) all must be considered and analyzed by experienced attorneys with the resources to best prove your case.
