Spinal Cord Injury Attorneys Ready To Fight For Your Right To Fair Compensation

Whether your spinal cord injury (SCI) seems mild or severe, you should ideally have the best available medical care and therapy for the sake of your long-term recovery. Your medical treatments and rehabilitation may include:

  • Emergency care after a car accident or fall injury
  • Surgical stabilization of the spine
  • Physical and occupational therapy
  • Modification of the home environment or a move to a wheelchair-friendly place
  • Purchase and management of a wheelchair, Hoyer lift and/or modified van

Life after a spinal cord injury is challenging for almost anyone. You may face months or years of disability caused by paralysis. The severity of your injuries will depend on where on your spinal cord you were injured: your cervical, thoracic, lumbar or sacral vertebrae. A strong recovery demands a multifaceted approach. Many patients and their family care givers (spouse, parent, son or daughter) benefit from the services of social workers, psychologists and other professionals, in addition to medical doctors.

Besides money for medical care and therapy, you may need compensation to cover your lost wages. Ideally, your compensation should also include acknowledgment of your pain and suffering. These and other factors should figure into your claim for compensation after an auto accident or slip-and-fall injury.
