Spinal Cord Injuries

When you are involved in a car accident, you might be fortunate enough to escape without any serious injuries. Wearing seat belts, having a car with air bags and other factors may help you to avoid the most traumatic injuries. Unfortunately, while they have greatly decreased auto accident fatality rates, these safety measures are not enough to prevent all injuries. Among the most serious injuries suffered in car crashes are spinal cord injuries.

An authority on traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury cases, Attorney Carlton F. Bennett will fight aggressively to protect your rights and maximize your financial compensation. With us, your case will be handled with skills and knowledge that few other law firms can bring to the table. To set up a free, fully confidential consultation with a top Virginia spinal cord injury lawyer, please call our Virginia Beach law office today.

OUR LAW FIRM HANDLES ALL TYPES OF SPINAL CORD INJURY CASES

The National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) estimates that nearly 225,000 Americans are currently living with the effects of a serious spinal cord injury. These injuries can occur in a wide range of different accidents and they can cause serious long-term or permanent impairments to the victim. Our catastrophic injury lawyer has the experience to represent you in the full range of spinal cord injury claims, including:

  • Motor Vehicle Accidents: When you are involved in a car accident, you might be fortunate enough to escape without any serious injuries. Wearing seat belts, having a car with airbags and other factors may help you to avoid the most traumatic injuries. Unfortunately, while they have greatly decreased auto accident fatality rates, these safety measures are not enough to prevent all injuries. Among the most serious injuries suffered in car crashes are spinal cord injuries.
  • Commercial Truck Accidents: A fully loaded tractor trailer can weigh in excess of 75,000 pounds. A truck accident can result in catastrophic injuries, including spinal cord damage. If you suffered spinal cord damage in a truck accident, we are here to help.
  • Premises Liability Claims: Fall accidents are among the leading cause of spinal cord injuries. If your loved one suffered spinal cord damage due to a business or property owner’s negligence, you can hold them accountable through a premises liability claim.
  • Dangerous and Defective Products: When spinal cord injuries are caused by (or made worse by) dangerous or defective products, manufacturers and distributors may be held liable.
  • Medical Malpractice: You trust your doctors to provide high-quality, safe medical care. Unfortunately, hospitals and health care providers do not also live up to that trust. Medical negligence can cause serious injuries, including spinal cord injuries.

WE HELP YOU SEE THE BIG PICTURE

The severity of a spinal cord injury can vary as much as the people who suffer them. Some injuries may cause temporary numbness or tingling in the hands or feet; others could lead to permanent paralysis and complete loss of use of some or all of a person’s limbs. Regardless of what your prognosis might be, the law firm of The Law Firm of Carlton F. Bennett, P.L.L.C., works with you to have your injuries properly assessed so that you can seek an appropriate amount of compensation for your spinal cord injury.

Aside from medical bills and income lost due to missing work, you might be forced to go on disability or retrain for a different job based on your physical limitations. These are all expenses for which you could seek compensation. Our lawyers will help you to understand the long-term impact of your injuries and how to plan for them in the future.

YOU DESERVE COMPENSATION FOR THE FULL EXTENT OF YOUR DAMAGES

Every spinal cord injury is a medical emergency. Unfortunately, even a small amount of spinal cord damage can cause serious long term problems. Aside from medical bills and income lost due to missing work, you might be forced to go on disability or retrain for a different job based on your physical limitations.

Your pain and suffering, future medical care, and long-term disability must be considered. Our Virginia Beach personal injury lawyers will help you to understand the long-term impact of your injuries and how to plan for them in the future.
