In the past, we have helped clients deal with car accidents, workers’ compensation, wrongful death, and spinal cord injuries. Our New Jersey spinal cord injury attorney team has years of experience and the expertise needed to bring swift resolution to your legal issues. Spinal cord injuries can be life-altering and require long-term solutions, which many clients cannot pay for. Lost income contributes to these problems. Fortunately, you can trust our legal professionals to obtain a fair settlement that more than compensates you for your pain and suffering.

Understanding the Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries

Over the years, we have represented clients dealing with various spinal cord injuries and from different causes. We understand what we need to know about these injuries, enabling us to line up medical experts, compile evidence, and argue diligently in your favor. Whether you have experienced an incomplete spinal cord injury or a more devastating complete spinal cord injury, we can help. We are skilled at examining the causes of your accident and devising the appropriate legal strategy. Some common causes of spinal cord injuries include:

  • Medical Malpractice: Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor injures you due to negligence or an omission. They can happen during a surgical procedure or during other treatments. We will look for evidence that your doctor violated standard medical care, that negligence caused the injury, and that the injury itself caused damages. We must demonstrate you could have avoided the injury without the doctor’s mistake – and we will.
  • Motor Vehicle Accidents: Motor vehicle accidents are perhaps the most common causes of spinal cord injuries due to the speed and ferocity of many crashes. You could sue the other driver if they were negligent. Our spinal cord injury lawyers will assess the situation and develop an effective legal strategy. We will examine the crash site, talk to witnesses, view footage (if possible), evaluate insurance statements, and hire outside experts to prove your case.
  • Product Liability: Sometimes, spinal cord injuries occur due to product failings – particularly in a car accident. For instance, if your airbags did not deploy, then you may have a case against your vehicle’s manufacturer. Product liability can refer to other defendants as well. For instance, if an amusement park ride injured you, you can pursue legal action against the proprietor. We will examine all relevant information to help you.
  • Work-Related Accidents: Workplace accidents are occasionally more complicated than other situations because of workers’ compensation. Before pursuing any kind of legal action, you will need to file a workers’ compensation claim. This claim will attempt to recoup lost earnings and pay for medical expenses and rehabilitation. However, workers’ compensation claims do not always pan out. We can step in when they don’t.
