Spinal Cord Injuries

If you have suffered a spinal cord injury resulting in paraplegia or quadriplegia, no amount of financial compensation can make up for all you have lost. However, if you are fairly compensated, you will be able to afford adaptive transportation, home modifications, personal care attendants and other accommodations needed to restore dignity and self-sufficiency.

At the law firm of Powers Landreth in North Carolina, our lawyers will serve as zealous advocates to guide you through the complex legal, medical and financial issues you will face.

Lifetime Planning

While spinal cord damage is usually permanent, there are a number of things that can help you regain maximum independence despite your disability. A financial settlement should make it possible for you to pay for therapy, services and adaptive devices such as:

  • Occupational therapy
  • Job retraining
  • Special vans
  • Motorized wheelchairs
  • Home modifications
  • Personal assistants

Whenever an accident results in a spinal cord injury, our lawyers will create a personal injury team that includes lawyers, economists, financial planners and medical consultants. Only by assessing your lifetime needs can we demand enough compensation to provide you with as much financial security as possible.

Our lawyers also represent clients who suffer diminished earning capacity and disability due to a herniated disc, lower back injury or neck injury.

Competent and Compassionate Assistance

At Powers Landreth, we limit the number of personal injury cases we handle so that we can give clients with the most serious injuries the time and attention they deserve. If you have been paralyzed or have suffered a spinal cord injury that prevents you from working, we know that your financial needs will be immediate. Our lawyers will work hard to negotiate a settlement. However, we are never afraid to file suit and try your case in court to help you obtain a just verdict.

Free Attorney Consultation

We are eager to serve spinal cord injury victims and their families. We offer free attorney consultations on the phone, in the office, or in your home or the hospital if you are unable to travel. We are accessible 24 hours a day through our office phone at (704) 342-4357. You can also schedule an appointment by completing our simple contact form.

Client Reviews
My daughter had a second DUI and when it all seemed hopeless, Bill was able to get the charges dropped. This is a man who is extremely knowledgeable, yet still keeps his integrity which was impressive to me. He handles himself with dignity. If you hire him, you will have the best of the best, along with his expansive intellect and wisdom about the law. Please don’t feel hopeless, when you can hire such a great attorney to be on your side.
Bill Powers’ staff has handled several traffic citations for me over the years, and they exceeded my expectations each and every time. Would highly recommend anyone faced with a traffic citation or court case contact his office and they will handle it from there. M.C.
I utilized Bill Powers and his firm after my DUI infraction in December 2011. During my initial consultation he immediately made me feel at ease with his knowledge of the law and his confidence in moving forward. Not to mention a great personality. He filled me in on all the ramifications and the process as a whole. I am a realist, and did not expect miracles. But Bill is stickler for procedure and that is what you need in a crises such as this. It took a good year, and the results were more than I could ever anticipate or hope for. I would have paid more had I known the results ahead of time. If you find yourself in a similar situation, trust me, he is your go to lawyer. J SJ
