What to Know Before Filing a Spinal Cord Injury Claim
Our team has been serving clients for over 35 years, which has given us the type of experience necessary to handle spinal cord injury (SCI) cases. Especially when you or a loved one has suffered a catastrophic injury, your claim needs a heightened level of medical and legal care and attention. This is not only because of the extent of your medical needs and expenses, but mostly because of the way such an injury will affect you permanently, in every aspect of your life.
Spinal cord injury patients are rarely able to return to their previous jobs, if they are lucky enough to re-enter the workforce at all. They may struggle to complete simple tasks like basic housework or even be unable to provide for their basic care. These injuries often disrupt every aspect of one’s life and require special consideration.
These losses typically deserve the most significant levels of compensation. However, we can almost assure you the at-fault party will not want to pay what they owe. Insurers and company defendants know just how much spinal cord injuries can cost over the course of an individual’s lifetime. However, rather than offering you a fair settlement, they will try offering a small amount of compensation—one that will not meet your long-term needs.
Our attorneys will work closely with highly qualified medical experts to determine the size and scope of your losses. We will consult with doctors and life-care experts to fully assess how your injury will affect your present and future life. Then, we will demand to receive compensation on your behalf for:
- Past medical expenses
- Future medical needs
- Lost wages
- Lost earning capacity
- Mobility aids and accommodations
- Household or personal aid
- Pain and suffering (past & lifetime)
- Mental anguish
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Home renovations to make your living space accessible
Finding your path forward after such a serious injury can be difficult. Having adequate compensation to address for future treatment and your life care needs is essential to maximizing the quality of your life. Our team can help you to have the best life possible on your journey into the future.
We Understand the Medicine in Spinal Cord Injury Claims
Spinal cord injury causes paralysis by blocking signals from the brain from reaching parts of the body below the damage. However, the side effects and sequelae of such injuries go beyond what is commonly known. Our attorneys fully understand the impacts of a spinal cord injury, which means we can help you receive compensation for all your losses.
Spinal cord injuries may cause:
- Complete or partial paralysis
- Dysregulation of internal organs
- Abnormal heart rate (arrhythmia)
- Difficulty with bladder and bowel control
- Chronic pain
- Increased risk of pneumonia and respiratory diseases
- Increased risk of blood clots
- Muscle spasms and/or exaggerated reflexes
- Decrease in sexual desire
- Depression or other mental health issues
- Dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system (responsible for blood pressure, stress responses and body temperature)
Such complications can make it difficult to leave the house and participate in society. Unfortunately, medical knowledge is not yet advanced enough to “cure” most of these conditions. However, you absolutely deserve compensation for the hardship they have introduced into your life. Because our attorneys fully understand how spinal cord injury can cause such complications, we will push for a settlement or verdict that accounts for your very obvious and even very subtle conditions that may plague you for a lifetime.
