Spinal Cord Injuries And Paralysis
Compensation For Lifelong Needs And Challenges
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), between 12,000 and 20,000 people suffer spinal cord injuries each year. Of these injuries, nearly half are caused by motor vehicle accidents and nearly one-quarter are caused by falls.
These are tragic events that will forever change a person’s life. If your injuries were caused by another’s negligence, you have the right to bring a lawsuit for your financial damages.

Building A Strong Case To Help You Recover The Damages You Will Need
The expenses associated with a spinal cord injury are enormous. According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center (NSCISC), the medical expenses in the first year of a spinal cord injury may add up to nearly $1 million. The annual living expenses in future years can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Additionally, paralysis can require extensive remodeling to your home and vehicle. You may be very limited in the type of work you can perform, if you are able to work at all.
We have experience with the full spectrum of spinal cord injuries, from high cervical damage resulting in quadriplegia to injuries to lower areas of the spinal cord resulting in paraplegia, partial paralysis and nerve damage. We work with families and doctors to understand the limitations and related health complications, and to assemble a compensation package for the economic and personal loss.
A successful personal injury lawsuit must account for all of these expenses. Your lawsuit must also make certain you have sufficient financial resources for your expected future needs as well. Our Sanford personal injury attorney is experienced at investigating accident incidents thoroughly, accessing all of the pertinent records and reports. We will work with professionals who will serve as expert witnesses to bolster your case and give you the best chance of obtaining the compensation you need.
