According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) between 12,000 and 20,000 people every year suffer a spinal cord injury. The most common cause of spinal cord injuries is a car accident, although spinal cord injuries are often caused by falls, violence or sports as well. Spinal cord injuries are devastating, and go beyond the loss of mobility. If you, a family member or other loved one has quadriplegia or paraplegia, it can be very difficult to come to grips with the limitations of your condition. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you get the resources you require to address your needs.

Committed to Helping You Recover Damages to Last a Lifetime
Simply put, the expected lifetime costs for spinal cord injuries are stunning. According to the CDC, the estimated lifetime medical costs for a spinal cord injury range between $500,000 and $3 million, depending on the severity of the injury. These costs do not even take any expected wage or income loss into account.
These expenses are staggering. You need a lawyer who can present an accurate, persuasive presentation of your expected medical costs and lost income to an insurance company, and when necessary, a judge and jury. Our law firm will work with financial planners, life care planners and other experts as necessary to demonstrate the full extent of your needs.
