Spinal Cord Injuries
Accidents that involve damage to the spine can be crippling, forcing victims to rely on adaptive living equipment and long-term nursing care and/or therapy. The spinal cord injury lawyers of Wagner & Wagner know how much these injuries impact a family, and we dedicate our resources to helping victims get fair settlements. If you or a member of your family is suffering from a debilitating spinal cord injury, you need a personal injury law firm that has many years of experience working with serious personal injury clients.
ABOUT SPINAL INJURIES
A spinal cord injury (SCI) is an injury that results in damage to the spinal cord. SCIs range from minor to severe and can involve loss of basic bodily functions at the more serious end of the spectrum. Many spinal injuries will result in permanent damage.
Auto accidents involving cars, trucks, motorcycles, and pedestrians are the most common causes of severe spinal cord trauma. We have also represented clients with SCIs due to slip and fall accidents, boating accidents, nursing home abuse, and defective products. Physical effects include paralysis, brain damage, and loss of motor skills. Emotional/psychological damage can manifest in the form of depression, social awkwardness, withdrawal, and other effects.
LOOKING AHEAD AFTER A SPINAL CORD INJURY
Victims and their families have a long road ahead. When you hire us to represent your personal injury case, we promise to dedicate as much time as possible to investigating the full effects of the accident and getting you fair compensation. In many cases, injury victims will be entitled to several types of damages beyond medical expenses. Our attorneys are often able to secure funds for future medical care (including surgeries, physical therapy, and psychological therapy), loss of future income, pain and suffering, and loss of benefits. Because spinal injury victims may be prone to health-related problems like pneumonia, kidney stones, and bladder infections, we can request additional compensation for events that are likely to occur. We are often able to earmark a specific amount to cover the cost of a home care nurse or medical attendant in the event that one may be needed in the future.
