San Jose Personal Injury Attorney
Spinal Cord Injuries
Whether you were injured in a construction site accident, a
swimming pool accident or a
motorcycle accident, our lawyers provide comprehensive client service from the very start of your case. First, we make sure that you are receiving the full range of medical treatment that you need. In severe spinal cord injury cases, we usually retain a case management nurse to coordinate your treatment and help work out the logistics of your medical care. We can even help resolve problems with getting tests, medications, or therapeutic services that your insurance will not cover.
At the same time, we assemble a team of experts chosen for their ability to analyze, document, and persuasively describe their findings with respect to every technical issue of liability and damages that will arise in your case. We advance the expenses involved in the development of expert and forensic evidence at our own risk, and we only recover our costs when we collect on your claim.
Long-Term Healthcare Needs
Accurate identification of your need for ongoing care in a spinal cord injury case resulting in quadriplegia or paraplegia will usually require a physiatrist specializing in central nervous system cases, a vocational rehabilitation expert or occupational therapist, an economist, and a life care planning specialist, as well as your treating and consulting physicians and surgeons. We anticipate that the defense will contest every element of your damages demand, so we document your losses and future requirements as specifically as possible.
We consult nationally recognized experts in healthcare, medicine, and life-care planning in order to ensure our clients receive compensation proportional to their current and future needs. In cases involving paraplegia and quadriplegia, we work with established healthcare cost data that details known costs associated with nursing care, medicine, medical equipment, and other needed medical care. Our goal in all cases is to help you recover the money you will need to make the most of your life in the aftermath of an incapacitating accident.
