Chicago Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers
Illinois Catastrophic Accident Attorneys
Approximately 12,000 new spinal cord injuries occur each year. Depending on the location of the spinal cord injury, the victim could suffer partial or complete paralysis. In severe cases, breathing and other involuntary reflexes may be compromised. Spinal cord injuries typically require months or years of medical and rehabilitation treatment.
Causes of spinal cord injuries:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Violent acts and other intentional torts
- Sports incidents
Spinal cord injuries can cause partial or complete paralysis, or death, and the medical costs and other expenses associated with a spinal cord injury can be astronomical. Spinal cord injuries frequently require a lifetime of medical care and rehabilitation, and someone who suffers a spinal cord injury may be unable to work after the accident.
If you or someone you loved has suffered a spinal cord injury because of the conduct of someone else, you may be entitled to compensation to cover medical expenses, rehabilitation and counseling costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Lawsuits involving brain injuries involve complex legal issues and require a comprehensive factual analysis.
If you or someone you love has suffered a spinal cord injury, you are likely most concerned with recovery and rehabilitation. While medical treatment should take priority over legal issues, it is important to remember that there are time limitations in which a cause of action can be asserted to recover compensation following a spinal cord injury. Accordingly, victims of spinal cord injuries should take care to ensure that evidence is preserved.
A spinal cord injury victim should also notify his or her insurance company of the accident. You may also wish to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney like the Chicago spinal cord attorneys at Ankin Law Offices. Our experienced personal injury and wrongful death attorneys can handle the legal issues involved with your spinal cord injuries so that you can focus on your medical treatment and recovery.
If you or a loved one has suffered a spinal cord injury, contact the Chicago spinal cord attorneys at Ankin Law Offices at (800) 442-6546 to schedule a free consultation to discuss your spinal cord injury.
