Any damage to the spine is a serious medical concern. It is not wise to try to resolve these claims on your own, rather you should consult with an experienced spinal cord injury attorney.

These claims can take years to complete, but a qualified attorney can guide you through the process.

Compensation in Spinal Cord Injury Lawsuits

Insurance companies are in the practice of settling claims as soon as possible. They will look at past claims, statistics, and charts to determine how much compensation a claim is worth. An attorney, however, will look for the appropriate compensation by reviewing medical records and notes, lost income, and the ability to work, along with any other damages.

Lots of cases settle, but claims can be litigated if necessary, and Strom Law Firm’s Columbia Spinal Cord Injury Attorneys are ready to litigate. Plaintiffs often sue for the following damages:

  • Medical costs
  • Lost income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages

Who Can Be Held Liable for Spinal Injury Cases?

You could be considered partially at fault for your injuries. This does not mean you should not seek justice or compensation for your injury. The Strom Law Firm will investigate the situation and talk to appropriate witnesses involved to determine liability. We will also look at how these parties could have prevented your injuries.

Common Spinal Cord Injuries

There are two general classifications of spinal cord injuries:

Complete spinal cord injuries include permanent damage to the affected area of the spinal cord. Conditions in which all the sensory and motor functions are lost, your injury would be considered complete.

Incomplete spinal cord injuries encompass partial damage to the affected area of the spinal cord. An injury considered incomplete would mean there is limited motor and sensory function.

The most common types of spinal cord injuries include:

  • Tetraplegia: Arms, hands, trunk, legs, and pelvic organis are all affected. This is commonly known as quadriplegia and is paralysis in all limbs.
  • Paraplegia: Paralysis affecting all or part of the trunk, legs, and pelvic organs. You may lose mobility or even lose all feeling in the lower part of your body.
  • Triplegia: Loss of mobility and sensation in a single arm and both legs resulting as a result of an incomplete spinal cord injury.

What Our Clients Say

They truly care
Mrs Vallery, who answered the phone took more care and attention to detail than any other law office, that I have called, in 2 years+. She diligently took notes to give to the lawyers and cared about my situation and let me actually tell everything without cutting me short. Out of over 100 law offices, this is rare treatment. Care. Consideration. That means more than anything going through this…

From Self-Representation to Victory in SSDI Case!
My experience with Mario and his staff was outstanding. When everyone said to give up my case with SSDI and after being poorly represented and losing. I had to file my own appeals and represent myself. I literally called every attorney in the book. Then I called Mario cold – I expected one more no! Well, this gentleman took my case and won. He knows the law and cares a lot. I am proud to call him my friend. If you need a professional to help you, call these guys.

A Lifesaver in the Courtroom, Ensuring Freedom with A1 Professionalism
Needed a lifesaver. I had gotten myself into a bad situation and the possibility of going to prison. Through the diligence and hard work done by attorney Alley B., I was able to walk out of that courtroom a free man. No tricks just hard down attorney work. She was an A1 professional and knew every inch of the Law pertaining to my case. For that, I am forever grateful.
