When you hire a New York City spinal cord injury lawyer, you benefit from a legal professional fighting for your rights out of the gate and all the way through to the end. The person or company that caused your injury will have a team of lawyers fighting hard for them, to try and minimize your injury, allege you have degeneration already or just exacerbated a preexisting injury. Having an experienced attorney fighting for you is not only a good idea and in your best interests, but necessary.
An experienced attorney can properly evaluate your spine injury case and use their experience with past cases to best determine a fair settlement amount. Although the vast majority of cases are settled pre-trial, if trial is necessary, you will want an attorney with the requisite trial experience and familiarity with trial techniques and courtroom procedure to battle for you.
One of the greatest benefits of hiring an attorney, however, is peace of mind. Living with a spinal cord injury can be difficult enough without also having to deal with the legal issues involved in your personal injury case. Having a lawyer on your side eases your burden as you essentially hand a problem over to your lawyer and take it off your shoulders.
If you are injured in an accident and suffer a spinal cord injury, you need a personal injury lawyer who has experience handling these types of cases.
Paralysis occurs when someone experiences an injury to their spinal cord, which prevents that person from regaining the full use of their arms, legs, or other body functions.
Some people with paralysis regain the use of their arms or legs with substantial treatment and rehabilitation. This regiment of therapy encompasses several different areas of medicine, including surgery, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and other rehabilitative services.
Quadriplegics and Paraplegics often seek treatment from various medical providers including, neurosurgeons, neurologists, orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists, occupational therapists, nurses, psychiatrists, urologists, pulmonologists, dermatologists, and psychologists or psychiatrists.
It is very important for someone with paralysis to treat the physical disabilities as well as the mental or emotional injuries associated with those injuries.
Any trauma to the back, neck or spine may permanently affect the spinal cord. An impact to the spinal cord may even cause bone fracture, cause slipped disks or result in other serious injuries. Trauma that severs the spine, such as a bad car accident or truck accident, can even cause complete disability to the injured victim. Certain types of accidents lead to spinal cord injuries in New York City more often than others.
Auto accidents are the number one cause of new spinal cord injuries in the U.S. each year.
