As a previous post on this blog discussed, although all spinal cord injuries are permanent since the spinal cord itself does not heal, not all such injuries will land a victim in a wheelchair. If the injury is in the lower back, a person may still be able to walk and do some of the things they used to do, although they could experience incontinence and difficulty walking without some sort of help.
While in some sense a Wilmington resident is probably relieved to walk away from an injury still being able to move all four limbs, in another sense, these injuries can be difficult to get full and fair compensation for since they aren’t the classic type of spinal cord injury, that is, the type that leads to paralysis.
As such, an insurance company or the public at large may have a tendency, even unconsciously, to minimize the injury and not see how it affects the professional and personal life of the victim. This is where the experienced attorneys at our law office can be of valuable assistance. Using a network of financial and medical experts and relying on our trial experience and knowledge of the law, we can help you give a clear picture of the full extent of your injuries, even when they do not include total paralysis.
While we obviously cannot promise a result in a given case, we have a track record of success in neck and back cases in which we were able to secure a noteworthy verdict for our client. We are up to the fight that often ensues after a victim claims compensation for injuries following neck or back trauma.
