Spinal injuries can result in severe chronic conditions for victims. This can have lifelong effects on victims and their families, even with attempts at physical rehabilitation.
Spinal injuries may start relatively mild, but worsen dramatically over time if they are aggravated by movement or a second accident. To keep them from getting worse, patients must adhere to all prescribed medical care and physical therapy, but financial obstacles may keep them from seeking care.
If you’ve suffered a spinal injury in an accident, you may be entitled to compensation above and beyond what workers’ compensation or your no-fault insurance covers. Your rights will vary depending on when and where the accident happened, so you need to contact an experienced personal injury lawyer for guidance and legal advice.
Depending on the severity of your injury, your new expenses may include medical bills, physical therapy, transportation, personal care, and more. You also may be unable to work. Although there are some government benefits for people with disabilities, some programs are challenging to qualify for, especially without the assistance of an attorney experienced in catastrophic injuries.
Insurance companies try to keep their costs as low as possible by denying your injuries full coverage. Car accident injury victims sometimes struggle to prove their injuries were the result of the accident, especially if they are mild to moderate spinal cord injuries.
Our experienced legal team understands that some injuries take time to manifest, but can still be lifelong such as degenerative spinal stenosis incurred on the job. We go above and beyond to explore every avenue to prove that your injury was the result of your work or an accident, to get you the compensation you need to cover your bills now and in the future.
Slip and fall accidents may also be disputed by the property owner or the property insurance company responsible for paying your bills. If you’re suffering from a life-changing injury or are even temporarily out of work due to a spinal injury, you don’t have time to wait. You need to contact a lawyer in Clinton to help you recover compensation for your personal injury claim.
