Spinal Cord Injury & Paralysis

1Serious spinal cord injuries – no matter how they are sustained – can be devastating. Rehabilitation can be long, painful and expensive. Treatment and healthcare costs can and usually do last a lifetime. At Coker, Schickel, Sorenson, Posgay & Iracki, we help victims of spinal cord injury recover appropriate financial compensation. We work closely with specialists who diagnose severe spinal cord injuries. We also consult with economists and life care planners to provide an accurate and thorough cost-data analysis of the impact a client’s injuries will have on their future.

If you or a family member suffered a debilitating spinal cord injury due to the negligence of another, please contact our office and we will carefully evaluate your case and discuss your available legal options. Our goal is to provide you with the highest-degree of professional commitment so the best possible outcome can be achieved for such a life-altering injury.

The medical expenses and rehabilitation costs associated with a catastrophic spinal cord injury have been well documented. Our skilled attorneys will help you pursue financial compensation for severe spinal cord injuries and their associated complications, including:

  • crushed vertebra
  • nerve damage
  • bruised ligaments
  • spinal cord tissue tears
  • bed sores/pressure ulcers
  • breakdown of the skin
  • spinal stenosis
  • spasticity
  • heterotopic ossification
  • paraplegia
  • quadriplegia

A spinal cord injury victim’s initial medical expenses can be relatively easy to determine. The potential side effects, long-term nerve damage and the loss in quality of life are not. Because insurance companies often resist paying fair settlements in these types of serious injury cases, we support a case with medical expert information on potential health complications that can arise, and the related costs involved in addressing them. We also work with psychologists to define the mental and emotional impact a spinal cord injury can have on our client’s life, and its associated expense.

If a fair settlement cannot be reached with the negligent parties and we proceed to trial in a spinal cord injury lawsuit, our presentation to jurors and judges is designed to ensure they understand the full impact these kinds of injuries can have on the everyday life of a person. The attorneys of Coker, Schickel, Sorenson, Posgay & Iracki have the experience and resources necessary to help you recover the compensation you need and deserve.
