A single, catastrophic impact can change a life in an instant. The physical, financial and psychological impact on the victim and the victim’s family and friends can be difficult to measure. Our spinal cord injury law firm has extensive experience helping spinal cord injury victims obtain the pretrial settlements or jury verdicts necessary to compensate them for their injuries and monetary losses.
Bay Area Spinal Cord Injury Attorney
How can a lawyer explain the effects of quadriplegia or paraplegia to an insurance company? If the insurance company does not make an adequate settlement, how can the spinal cord injury attorney convince a jury of what life is like for a quadriplegic or paraplegic person?
At the Weber & Nierenberg law firm, we consult with medical doctors, physical therapists, rehabilitation therapists and life care specialists to determine the current and future needs of spinal cord injury victims.
- How much attendant care does the injured person need?
- What will future medical requirements be?
- What medical equipment is needed?
- What is the economic impact?
- Can the injured person continue working?
- Does the injured person need to be retrained for another job?
- Is the family’s income decreased by the injury?
One of the most important questions is: What is it like to face a lifetime of quadriplegia or paraplegia?
To help the insurance company, jury and judge understand, we produce a day-in-the-life video to demonstrate what the injured person faces in a 24-hour period.
A spinal cord injury can be caused in many ways, including a car accident, motorcycle accident, bicycle accident, truck accident, Muni/BART accident, pedestrian accident or accident resulting from dangerous property conditions on private or public property. Whatever caused the accident, contact spinal cord injury lawyers who will aggressively represent you. When the insurance company or public entity disputes who is at fault for the accident or when the settlement offer is insufficient to compensate you for your losses, we will file a lawsuit and take your case to trial.
Recent Example of How We Have Helped Our Spinal Cord Injury Clients
We represented a 76-year-old whose car was rear-ended by a San Francisco Municipal Railway bus. The bus driver was intoxicated, and our investigation revealed that the driver had an extensive substance abuse problem and prior accident history. The accident severed our client’s spinal cord and left him a T-5 paraplegic. The settlement included enough money to provide him with the needed life care prognosticated by our experts.
