Our Virginia/Carolina personal injury lawyers have handled several serious and catastrophic injuries involving paralysis, paraplegics and/or quadriplegia. There can be no more devastating, serious injury than any injury that compromises a person’s spinal cord and causes paralysis.
A person who is paralyzed from spinal cord injuries may require some degree of skilled or non-skilled nursing care for the rest of their life whether it is handled by a family member or an independent nurse. An injury lawyer representing a person suffering paralysis injury will normally work carefully with the medical professionals that are treating the victim. Also, if the case requires litigation, a life care plan expert must be consulted who will create a life care plan that presents the costs and medical expenses associated with caring for someone with these types of devastating injuries. Our injury lawyers have handled several significant cases of this sort in the past and has worked tirelessly to gain the maximum compensation for the family faced with the staggering costs of medical care associated with a spinal cord injury case.
