Spinal cord injuries are the worst physical injury an individual can suffer, often resulting in the need for life-long care. They impact the lives of both the victim and his or her family.
Spinal cord injuries are caused by car accidents, medical malpractice or other incidents. They affect the body’s central nervous system, causing loss of body function. The severity of a spinal cord injury depends on where the injury occurs. Injuries near the head and neck can result in quadriplegia, or a total paralysis of the arms and legs. Injuries at the mid-section cause paraplegia, or paralysis of the lower body; and injuries to the body’s lower-section can result in some loss of sensation and decreased mobility. Regardless of where the injury occurs, spinal cord injuries require immediate and special attention. They frequently have a profound effect on a person’s life.
Costs for surgeries, rehabilitation, medical treatments, and home renovations to accommodate wheelchairs and other assistive devices run high and insurance companies may fight against paying what they are required to. That is why it is crucial that victims of spinal cord injuries work with experienced personal injury lawyers like Richard and Alden who are focused, tough, and determined to get their clients the peace of mind they deserve and the financial compensation they are entitled to including damages for pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, home and vehicle modifications, future care and economic losses.
