Thousands of Americans suffer spinal cord injuries each year, and this is one of the most serious health damages one could ever experience. The consequences of injuries can range from minor strains to paralysis. Half of these injuries are caused by car accidents, while others by falls, assaults or even medical malpractice.

Five key reasons to hire a spinal cord injury lawyer

When spinal cord injury occurs, you are entitled to get compensation from the entity or person that is responsible for the damage. Consult with a spinal cord injury lawyer before you start talking with the person or institution at fault or their insurance company.

  1. An experienced attorney in spinal cord injuries will know how to professionally and efficiently review your case, looking for evidence, witnesses, experts in the field, etc. Your attorney’s job is to show that you were injured, that your injury was not a pre-existing condition, and that it is the direct consequence of another party’s action.
  2. A spinal cord lawyer has the necessary expertise to assess the damages of the injury on your health and life. 
  3. An attorney experienced in handling this type of lawsuits can ensure that the responsible party is held accountable. You will get the rightful compensation for your medical expenses, ongoing treatment, pain, and suffering, lost income or lost earning capacity, ongoing disability, emotional distress, etc.
  4. Hiring a spinal cord lawyer will also help you to protect your family on your long road to recovery. When you get the compensation you deserve, this should also cover family financial burdens, such as home modifications, adapted car for driving with a disability, standing frames, any post-discharge physical or psychological therapy, etc.
  5. Usually, insurance companies try to get victims to settle for less money than what would be rightful for you. Lawyers are experienced negotiators who are able to get you the compensation you deserve and need.

Client Reviews


Rated 5 out of 5

We received a letter from an attorney representing an ex employee from years ago. This letter couldn’t have come at a worse time for our family. Although the ex-employee had no substance in their case and this was mostly a nuisance, we felt very vulnerable and unprepared. I reached out to a few lawyers for a quote and their retainer fees alone were deal breakers. When I reached Thomas Gallagher, he approached my case from a completely different angle and walked me through the many small steps we would take to get through this issue. Within the first conversation I felt like I had a plan of attack, an attorney I could trust, and that our family was protected. Our case ended up never going to court. In fact, Thomas was able to resolve the entire issue within a week. I am extremely happy with the results from this potential lawsuit, but even happier knowing my family and business is now protected by a lawyer than can get the job done.
