Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer San Jose

A spinal cord injury is one of the most serious injuries we handle at the Abronson Law Offices. When the spinal cord is damaged, the result is usually either paraplegia or quadriplegia, depending on where the spine was damaged.

The attorneys at the Abronson law firm have extensive experience in handling catastrophic injuries. We understand the many ways life changes as a result of these injuries.

Causes of Spinal Cord Trauma

Motor vehicle accidents like car, motorcycle, and truck accidents are the most common cause of spinal cord injuries. Others include falls, workplace accidents, athletic accidents, and violence. Many of these injuries occur as the result of someone else’s negligence or willful wrongdoing, in which case the victim is entitled to pursue compensation from that party with the assistance of a spinal cord injury attorney. A lifetime of medical and personal care, diminished earning power, along with severe limitations and disabilities and the mental anguish that accompanies them need to be compensated by filing a claim against the person or entity whose negligence caused the loss.

At Abronson Law, we can help many victims of spinal cord injuries and their families pick up the pieces and move on with their lives. If you’ve been afflicted with a spinal cord injury from an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, we will fight aggressively on your behalf to ensure that you’ll have the means to get the medical treatment, personal care, and services you need for the remainder of your life.

Damages from Spinal Cord Injuries

If the injury is in the lower portion of the spine, the result is usually paraplegia, which is the loss of sensation and function below the injury. If the upper part of the spine is affected, it can cause quadriplegia, which is loss of function of all four limbs, chest, and abdominal muscles. Quadriplegics may need a ventilator to help them breathe.

In spinal cord injury cases, the stakes are high, because the need is so great for the victim and family, and the consequences of the injury are usually permanent. Insurance companies do not want to make the high payouts that are required to provide fair and adequate compensation and will use any means available to deny or minimize their insured’s responsibility for the accident.

Because victims of serious spinal cord injuries often need expensive lifetime care, it is important that you recover enough money to guarantee that your ongoing needs are met. These are some of the financial and other damages we will claim, when applicable:

  • Cost of medical treatment, both present and future
  • Cost of physical therapy, occupational therapy, and psychotherapy
  • Transportation costs
  • Loss of earnings and future ability to earn
  • Cost of alterations to your home to accommodate your disability, such as widening doorframes, installing wheelchair ramps and accessible bathroom fixtures, etc.
  • Cost of a vehicle with a wheelchair lift and/or hand controls
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional disturbance, mental anguish, extreme stress
  • Loss of mobility, disability, disfigurement
  • Loss of ability to enjoy life
