Spinal Cord Injury

The neck and spine are crucial yet fragile parts of the human anatomy. Injury to either of these areas can have consequences that last a lifetime. Neck, back, and spinal injuries can cause motor and sensory issues running the full gamut of severity, up to and including paraplegia and quadriplegia. Unfortunately, medical science has come only so far in its ability to directly treat these devastating injuries.

If your suffered a neck or back injury that resulted in severe loss of sensory or motor function, you probably realize that your life as you knew it has changed. But while modern science has made limited advances in the direct treatment of spinal cord and other nerve injuries, it has made great strides in improving quality of life for those so afflicted. These advances include modern wheelchairs and other mobility devices, electrical stimulation, and prostheses that can greatly improve mobility. A skilled Texas spinal injury lawyer at the Bates Law Firm can help ensure you have the financial resources to enjoy the best possible quality of life in spite of your injury.

Aggressiveness is crucial in spinal cord injury cases

The true cost of a spinal or neck injury can be difficult to contemplate. Such injuries can continue to generate medical and therapy bills for a lifetime, severely affect your wage-earning ability, require home modifications and the use of assistive devices, and may give rise to other medical complications including respiratory conditions, high blood pressure, and other circulatory problems.

If your injury was due to the negligence or recklessness of another, you may be entitled to compensation for many of these losses. But you only get one chance to recover these losses in a civil court action. That is why it is so important to have an experienced attorney on your side. Skilled Texas spinal injury lawyers can determine what your claim is worth and aggressively negotiate with insurance companies and other responsible parties on your behalf, always being ready to go to court if necessary. While money may not be able to truly restore what you lost, a fair settlement, award, or judgment can help improve your quality of life and provide financial security for you and your family.
