Why you should hire a spinal cord injury lawyer

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.

We had the pleasure of speaking with Troy for a contractor issue we had recently. He is smart, patient, empathetic and basically the lawyer we would want to be our side for (may God forbids) any legal assistance or battle we need! The interaction we had with him was “free of charge” but we already felt his dedication and concern (he took the time to reach out and follow up on how he can assist us further) which busy lawyers would normally ask their admin or assistant to do so on their behalf. We will be sure to contact again Troy, if need be! Thank you!!

I left a voicemail for Tom late Sunday evening and received a phone call first thing the next morning.

Tom was very quick to reply to any questions I had, and if he was caught up in a meeting, he was sure to return my call promptly.

Tom provided sound and logical advice, during a very stressful and uncertain time. At times I asked him to be more aggressive and was often met with the pros and cons of that decision, allowing me to understand the approach and thought process behind his strategy.

Ultimately he provided options for several paths for us to take, worked swiftly, and got us where we needed to be.

He reached out several times to check on my sanity and make sure I was good.

As someone with very high expectations, I would highly recommend his services. He provided expertise that proved to be successful, and also took the time to make sure I was emotionally solid.

Tom assisted with me with a 50% / 50% ownership conflict.

i liked that a lawyer, and not a staff member, called me to get the details and he gave me his opinion of what his initial thoughts are about my case.

What was thought to be a simple breach of contract turned into a nightmare. Through their tenacity and their deep knowledge of the law, we were successful. There is no reason to look any further as you will not get any better representation than this firm. I highly recommend them and strongly suggest that if you are considering starting a business or are already managing one, this firm will guide you, avoiding the troubled waters businesses sometimes find themselves in.

Johnny Nitti helped us with our estate plan. He was very meticulous while drafting the plan and spent enough time to explain the details to us. He filed the deed with county recorder and paid for the fees himself. Overall, Johnny did a great job and we definitely plan to work with him in the future for any updates to our EP.
