Back & Spinal-Cord Injuries
Back and spinal cord injuries can have an immediate and a long-term effect on life, health, and happiness
There is perhaps no more common injuries our clients suffer after an accident than back and spinal cord injuries. These types of injury can be especially painful and long lasting or permanent, and negatively affect quality of life for our clients.
The common back injuries we see in our Brett Law clients include milder types like back sprain and strain, to severe forms like disc herniation and fractures.
The common spinal-cord injuries our client sustain in accidents include a bruise (also called a contusion), a partial tear, or a complete tear (called a transection) in the spinal cord.
Many Brett Law clients who live with a spinal cord injury have secondary complications including pain, respiratory and heart problems, bladder and bowel dysfunction, and respiratory complications. Many people can no longer work in their chosen career fields.
The injury attorneys at Brett McCandlis & Brown have worked with hundreds of clients, and most fall into one of these four groups. Each type of client needs special support, and each has a different set of interests and concerns.
What does a successful back or spinal cord injury claim look like?
When a Brett Law client is suffering from a back injury or spinal-cord injury caused by an accident, we take special steps to identify the extent of the injury, to evaluate its cause, and to determine how the injury affects our client's life, now and in the future. Since back and spinal-cord injuries often require long-term, costly medical care, we ensure that this cost is fully factored into the insurance-claim process. A successful claim is one in which our client receives a settlement or verdict that enables them to fully recover financially, and compensates them for their current and future losses.
Helping clients heal is our job, and we are very, very good at our job.
As injury attorneys, we have achieved great results for our clients dealing with back and spinal-cord injuries, including:
