Spinal Cord Injury

There is a real education process when coming to grips with the problems that an injured person faces. If the victim is a young person, the parents will experience this process as well, and it is a painful one.

Our job is to help you and your family through the process of facing many harsh realities.

As lawyers, we assist our clients with their treatment providers, to help them understand what is involved in the injury and give them as much information as we can so they can educate themselves.

We’ll bring together an experienced team to help a victim and their loved ones come to grips with the situation and begin to put their lives back together. There’s no doubt that these cases must be addressed by lawyers who are educated in spinal cord injuries and who can anticipate conditions that might develop during the course of the injured person’s care.

Our clients generally do not come into our office; we travel a number of times throughout a given year to meet with them, to speak with them, to speak with their case workers, care providers, neurosurgeons, neurologists and other care providers.

DID YOU KNOW:

The psychological impact of such a serious injury is another issue that medical staff and we, as lawyers, try to help the injured person manage.

Spinal cord injuries are absolutely devastating, with most happening to young men between the ages of 18 and 30.

Usually these are high-end athletes who are risk takers in their sports or preferred activities, able to do things a lot of people can’t do because of their athletic prowess and skill. To be faced with this sort of injury can be life-threatening from a psychological point of view.

We want to make sure that the people who are going to be caring for the injured person and the family have the best possible care going forward.
