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
