Spinal Cord Injuries can be devastating. They can result in severe pain and paralysis, which can severely impact not only the life of the injured person, but also their family members.
Spinal cord injuries can be caused by many ways, including:
- Car accidents, truck accidents or other vehicle accidents,
- Accidents caused by drunk drivers,
- Medical negligence, and
- Other accidents caused by third parties
Coping with Paralysis
For most of us, it’s difficult to imagine going from a healthy life to being confined to a wheelchair as the result of a sudden accident. In a moment, our life can change from being completely independent to being dependent upon others for significant, and sometimes total, care. In some cases, paralysis leaves individuals not only confined to a wheelchair, but also in need of machines to simply breathe.
Paralysis victims include the family members of those injured. Their lives are also dramatically changed as a result of the injury, as often they must become full-time care providers.
How We Can Help
The facts and circumstances of each spinal cord injury are unique. In representing a client, we seek to uncover all of the potential causes that contributed to the spinal cord injury, so that all individuals and entities responsible can be held accountable. We work with accident reconstructions, medical providers, and others as necessary to fully investigate every accident.
Once we identify those who we believe are responsible for causing the spinal injury, we seek to prove the liability of each and every person, as well as each and every component of the damages to which our clients may be entitled. Because of the significant amount of damages that can be at stake for spinal injuries, defendants and their insurance companies often fight back hard in seeking to deny liability and damages. In some cases, they try to shift the blame for the accident onto the injured victim. It is our job as as legal counsel to fight these wrongful allegations, and to work tirelessly to prove the true causes of the accident and damages on behalf of our clients.
If you or a family member has suffered a spinal cord injury, please call us at Fein, Flynn & Associates so that we can learn about your case. There is no obligation to use our services, and there is no fee unless and until we recover for you. We can explain what is required to prove your case at trial, and the options for recovery that may be available.
