A spinal cord injury will affect every aspect of your life. It will impact how you get from one place to another and how you perform everyday activities. It will also affect your health, emotional well-being and relationship with your family.
At the law firm of Murphy & Landon in Wilmington, Delaware, we understand the ramifications of spinal cord injuries because we have helped many victims fight for compensation. Over the years, our lawyers have built a strong reputation for taking on — and winning — neck and back injury cases.
The Tremendous Toll Of Spinal Cord Damage
Once damaged, the spinal cord does not heal. This means spinal cord injuries are permanent. They often require lifelong care, which in turn can easily require millions of dollars. The stakes are high in these cases.
If a family member has suffered a spinal cord injury resulting in localized paralysis, paraplegia or quadriplegia, the insurance company will fight you long and hard over the value of your claim. It will likely take a great deal of skill and preparation to push for a fair outcome.
Our lawyers work with a host of experts to paint a clear picture of the compensation you deserve. For example, we will enlist the help of:
- Medical experts to prove the extent of the injury itself
- Life care planners to evaluate what type of ongoing care you will need
- Economists to quantify the harm you have suffered in a present-day dollar amount
We will take the time to understand all the ways your injury has impacted your life. This holistic approach often translates to better results.
