Pursuing compensation following a serious spinal cord injury can be stressful and frustrating. An experienced personal injury attorney can assist you through the legal process by:
Ultimately, a San Mateo spinal cord injury attorney can help you obtain the compensation you deserve while you focus on recovery.
There are two types of spinal cord injuries: complete and incomplete. A complete spine injury results in paralysis, or loss of function and sensation, below the point of injury. An incomplete injury results in the loss of only some feeling and function. Incomplete injuries can heal over time. However, no known cure exists for complete injuries. Patients with spinal cord injuries have to contend not only with paralysis but with a host of related health complications.
Although with rehabilitation and treatments such as surgery many people with spinal cord can improve their mobility, most will never make full recoveries.
The damages available for a spinal cord injury or traumatic brain injury can reach into the millions in catastrophic injury cases. A patient suffering from a spine injury may be eligible for payment for modifications to their home or vehicle, nursing care, hospitalizations, medical care, equipment, medications, vocational training, lost wages, lost quality of life, pain and suffering, loss of sexual function, and many other tangible and intangible losses. A lawyer can help prove these losses and hold the defendant accountable. Insurance companies are known to offer low-ball settlements in hopes you will take the money and run. Do not settle for less compensation than you truly deserve.
At Danko Meredith Trial Lawyers, we care about clients. Our excellent trial record means we not only have a good chance at winning in court but that defendants are more likely to try harder to settle out of court. Retaining a firm with a history of trial success can motivate defendants to offer higher settlements to avoid going to court.
