Spinal Cord Injury and Working with a Personal Injury Attorney

hand on a wheelchair wheelSpinal cord injuries are often caused by motor vehicle accidents. Other causes, such a gun shot or work place injury are often common causes. The results of a spinal cord injury are devastating and require ongoing support and assistance. If the spinal cord injury was caused by the negligence or recklessness of others, you need to know your rights. 

Most insurance policies do not adequately cover a spinal cord injury. Left to deal with the aftermath, you or your loved one deserve the legal representation of a law firm that specializes in personal injury.

Spinal cord injury cases can include:

  • The need for surgery and extensive rehabilitation
  • Lifetime disabilities
  • Ongoing issues with depression, cognition and communication
  • Extensive hospital and medical care

Your damages can include the cost of your medical care after the injury, the loss of employment wages, the loss of future earning capacity and the pain and suffering you experienced because of the injury.
