What Claims Are Available?

The compensation available to you will depend on the specific facts in your case such as:

  • Were you injured in an accident or as a result of medical malpractice? If your spinal cord injury is the result of another person's negligence, you may have a personal injury claim. We can help you build your claim and secure compensation to cover your medical bills, lost wages and damages for your pain and suffering.
  • Were you injured at work? Workers' compensation is available for injuries on the job, regardless of who is at fault. We can help you secure those benefits. If you were injured at work by a negligent third party, you may also have a third-party personal injury claim.
  • Are you unable to work? If your spinal cord injury is keeping you from returning to work, you may be able to secure Social Security benefits such as Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI or SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

Our attorneys often consult with medical experts, life-care planners, occupational therapists and other professionals. This allows us to understand and assess the full costs of your injury so we can pursue full and fair compensation in your case.
