We Help Spinal Cord Injury Victims
Paralysis of all types and degrees can have several different causes. Paralysis can be limited to certain parts of the body, involve entire extremities such as the legs or arms, can involve the entire body from the neck or chest downward and can be complete or partial. Such injuries can be caused by a disease that should have been treated differently, car crashes that injure or sever the spinal cord, sporting activities, malpractice, falls, etc. These injuries are very serious and are life-altering.
These cases require aggressive representation, a firm commitment and the resources to prove the entire claim with all its separate parts. If these injuries are due to negligence and other wrongful acts, then we will pursue the case to a successful conclusion.
You May Deserve Monetary Compensation
Spinal cord injuries are possible when trauma occurs to the spinal cord. Traumas or injuries can occur in car accidents and because of a surgical error or medical malpractice, stroke, work-related accidents, slip-and-fall accidents, swimming pool accidents or other types of accidents. With the representation of a skilled and experienced attorney at Strauss Law Offices, LLC, you may be able to recover monetary compensation for your spinal cord injury which can cover hospital costs, prescription costs, doctor bills, physical therapy and loss of wages, as well as pain and suffering in some cases.
Depending on the severity of the spinal cord injury, a person may experience only temporary issues whereas others may experience long-term paralysis. In almost all cases, victims never fully regain the level of function they had before the accident. Some common physical issues victims live with include:
- Paraplegia and quadriplegia
- Difficulties with motor function
- Difficulty managing bowel functions
- Reproductive and/or sexual difficulties
In addition to these physical issues and challenges, a victim may also experience negative effects on their personal life including loss of employment or changes to employment to accommodate the victim’s new disability, moving to a different home or installing medical equipment or ramps to allow the victim to live independently, marriage and relationship issues and more.
