Paraplegic & Brain Injuries
As Lawyers representing a catastrophic personal injury case, it is our job to investigate the cause of the injury to determine and prove responsibility of the parties liable for events causing the accident.
Injury patients may be entitled to compensation to the extent that their injury was caused or contributed to by the negligent acts or omissions of others.
In some instances, such as in the case of a brain injury, which is not visible, there are special legal challenges in obtaining proper compensation for the victim. Your lawyer must be able to present sophisticated medical and psychological evidence to prove that the injury has occurred and how it affects the patient.
Be careful to find a firm that has adequate experience in serious injuries.
Spinal Cord Injury often leads to considerable financial losses. Only 40% of patients with paraplegia caused by spinal cord injury are eventually able to return to the workforce.
Paraplegia Injury is due to various causes. It typically involves an injury to the spinal cord that can lead to paralysis in the legs and chest or lower back.
Quadriplegia involves injury to the spine, in the cervix or neck area.
Brain Injury is unlike a cut or a bruise; trauma to the brain is not visible. Since the victim of a closed head injury may look fine outwardly and appear to interact normally in casual encounters, the victim’s friends, family members, coworkers and employers may not be able to understand or sympathize with his or her plight.
Brain injuries are often hard to prove when the impact of the injury is not outwardly obvious, so you need a firm like Bergel, Magence LLP. We are experienced at gathering sophisticated medical and psychological evidence to support your case.
If you are dealing with a serious injury, such as a spinal cord or brain injury, it’s critical that you hire a law firm with the right expertise so you can get maximum compensation for you and your family.
