We Help Spinal Cord Injury Victims Seek Justice
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 200,000 thousand Americans live with spinal cord injuries. Every year, thousands of individuals will be paralyzed as a result of the negligence of others. According to the CDC, motor vehicle accidents cause nearly half of all spinal cord injuries. Falls account for nearly a quarter of these injuries. Violent acts and sports injuries are the other common causes of spinal cord injuries. Clearly, the vast majority of these tragedies are preventable. If you or a loved one has suffered a spinal cord injury, quadriplegia or paraplegia due to the negligent or wrongful acts of another, it is important to explore your legal options.
The lawyers and staff of Britcher Leone, LLC, represent people who suffered spinal cord injuries. With offices in Glen Rock and Morristown, we help seriously injured individuals throughout the state.
Seeking Comprehensive Compensation Is Vital In These Cases
The most important issue in spinal cord injury claims is making certain that the damage award will fully compensate the injured person. A person who has been paralyzed will require specially fitted equipment in the home and the motor vehicle. He or she may require round-the-clock care. There will be ongoing medical expenses associated with these injuries. Depending on the nature of your injuries, you may be limited in the type of work you can perform, if you are able to work at all. These costs, over a lifetime, can easily run into the millions of dollars.
In order to make a strong case in litigation, all of these costs must be adequately documented. Our medical knowledge and legal acumen can make a great difference in the way your case is presented and eventually resolved. We will work with medical experts in order to establish the liability of the other party or parties. We will work with economists, vocational experts and life care planners to determine the present and future costs of your injuries.
Whether your case is resolved through a negotiated settlement or in trial, we will be with you at each step in the legal process.
