Spinal Injuries

Injuries to the spine are serious and scary. Some people recover with time to heal, or perhaps after surgery and extensive rehab. Other people never fully recover, suffering permanent disability or a cycle of re-injury that seriously hampers the ability to earn a living and enjoy life.

Serious Back And Neck Injuries · Spinal Cord Injuries

Our firm has obtained notable recoveries for catastrophic injuries in auto collisions, falls and other accidents:

  • Fractured vertebrae
  • Herniated disk or dislocated disk
  • Spinal cord injury, including paraplegia, quadriplegia or partial paralysis
  • Severe back strains resulting in permanent disability from work

We work closely with the family and doctors to document the diagnosis, treatment and degree of recovery. This may include spinal fusion, discectomy or other surgeries to stabilize the spinal column, repair a compromised disk or relieve chronic pain. People with spinal injuries often develop other serious health problems or require nursing care. Some will never walk again and will need wheelchairs or modifications to their home and vehicles. We also keep track of the collateral impact such as lost range of motion, loss of sensation, sleeplessness, depression and dependence on painkillers.

Our attorneys assemble a demand package that accounts for lost earnings, ongoing medical care, and our client’s pain and suffering. If the defense will not settle for a reasonable sum, we will proceed to trial to convince a jury to award fair damages.
