A spinal cord injury is a devastating life event. The injured person's recovery may depend in large part on the quality and timeliness of medical treatment received right after the accident.
Aggressive Therapy and Rehabilitation are Costly — and Often Promising
New technology and developments in treatment and care of spinal cord injury are always improving. Some people who have suffered spinal cord injury do overcome the most debilitating aspects of paralysis and recover the ability to walk again. Others spend the rest of their lives in wheelchairs. The capabilities of wheelchairs and other assistive devices are improving all the time. With therapy and support, a paraplegic or quadriplegic can live semi-independently.
All of these are compelling arguments for ample compensation for spinal cord injury victims after a serious accident such as a woman's serious slip-and-fall defective stairway accident that resulted in a $1 million settlement.
The Jasmer Law Firm has achieved outstanding results on behalf of many seriously injured clients. Our attorneys helped obtain a record-breaking $20 million settlement for a 23-year-old woman who was rendered a paraplegic in a truck collision with a UPS semi-tractor trailer. This is one of the outstanding results that our personal injury law firm has obtained on behalf of construction accident, car accident and truck accident victims.
How to Project Total Costs in a Spinal Cord Injury Case
When we evaluate a car accident or construction accident case involving a spinal cord injury, we are likely to consult with a range of experts. Investigators and advisors can help our lawyer build strong cases.
Experts contributing to a spinal cord injury claim may include the following:
- Accident reconstructionists
- Physicians and rehabilitation specialists, such as physical therapists and occupational therapists
- Medical researchers knowledgeable about likely new developments in treatment, therapy or accommodations for spinal cord injury victims
- Life care planners, who project current and future care needs of the disabled
- Vocational experts
Input from professionals such as these can help us determine the appropriate dollar amount to pursue in a personal injury claim. If innovative surgery may help a paraplegic recover the ability to walk, we will strive to build provisions for this treatment into a claim or lawsuit against liable parties after a car or truck accident. We handle cases for clients throughout Cook County. Injured back, spine injury, and head injury cases are a significant part of our law practice. We aggressively pursue maximum available compensation on behalf of people injured in car, truck and motorcycle accidents.
