A serious injury to the spinal cord is among the most devastating types of injuries a person can sustain. Even moderate spinal cord injuries can create overwhelming physical, emotional, and financial hardships. The spinal cord attorneys of Winegar Wilhelm Glynn & Roemersma have extensive experience in representing victims of spinal cord injuries and their families; we are able to provide compassionate counsel while taking aggressive action against the parties whose negligence caused the injuries.
If you or a member of your family has suffered such an injury, our personal injury attorneys can help you obtain the full measure of compensation to which you are absolutely entitled. We may not be able to restore the full quality of life you once had, but we can help to ensure that your medical bills, rehabilitation expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses and expenses related to your injury are fully compensated.
Presenting the Strongest Case Possible
In order to obtain compensation for your injuries, our attorneys will build the strongest case possible by using all of the resources at our disposal, working with skilled experts to prove the extent of your injury and reconstructing the accident that caused it with meticulous precision. We must be able to demonstrate that the party (or parties) responsible for your injuries behaved negligently in causing the accident in which you were injured. In other words, we must present evidence that shows:
- The defendant owed you a duty of care;
- By deviating from the standard of how a reasonable person would act in the same circumstances, the defendant breached that duty of care;
- In committing this breach, the defendant caused the accident in which you were injured;
- The injuries you sustained were indeed caused by this accident;
- And you sustained demonstrable losses and expenses as a result of these injuries.
For example, if your spinal cord injury resulted from a car accident, our car accident attorneys would have to present evidence that the defendant operated his or her vehicle in such a manner that he or she was directly responsible for the accident and, therefore, your injury. If we fulfill our duty to demonstrate all of the elements of negligence detailed above, the defendant will be found liable for your losses and expenses and be ordered to pay damages.
Types of Spinal Cord Injuries
Our personal injury attorneys handle cases involving both incomplete and complete spinal cord injuries. Most spinal cord cases arise from incomplete injuries, in which the victim still has some feeling or ability to move at and below the site where the spine was damaged. In such cases, victims are often able to regain some or most of their previous function and sensation, albeit with hard work and a string of expensive treatments. Complete spinal cord injuries, on the other hand, rob victims of all feeling and movement at and below the point of injury on the spine. Such injuries require a lifetime of care and permanently compromise the victim's quality of life.
