A spinal cord injury is a devastating diagnosis and difficult to cope with for both the victim and her family. These types of injuries are serious and their impact can last a lifetime. While there have been advances in medical treatment, the effects of a spinal cord injury are basically irreversible. However, if the nerve damage to the spinal cord is less severe, there have been cases where victims have been able to restore some basic motor functions or even walk with assistance. Unfortunately, a majority of spinal cord injuries cause permanent or total immobility and even paralysis. You do not have to suffer alone: the attorneys at Kirkendall Dwyer LLP can help you every step of the way.

Injuries this severe mean that patients may need a lifetime of specialized care, equipment and medication, and living accommodations. Many patients are unable to resume their previous employment, and others are unable to work at all. These costs may be quite extensive and insurance often only covers a small portion of them.

This is why it is important to contact an attorney with Kirkendall Dwyer LLP. An experienced, knowledgeable attorney can help you explore your legal options. We will work to determine the best solution for the medical care and treatment so you or your loved ones can lead as normal of a life as possible. You deserve to have an attorney who is on your side to ensure you are getting the full benefits you are entitled to in order to protect yourself and your family’s future.
