Paralysis from a Car or Truck Accident

To go from able-bodied to paralyzed in an instant is devastating. It's a profound adjustment, physically and psychologically. It creates financial hardships and doubts about the future. Of course, many people who have suffered a spinal cord injury go on to lead happy and productive lives. They don't want pity. But they do deserve justice and compensation for the impact and needs from a preventable accident.

Spinal Cord Injury

We know that spinal cord damage depends on the location on the spine and the nature of the injury. We have handled cases of quadriplegia, paraplegia and partial paralysis. We work with the person, the family and doctors to understand the prognosis and the immediate and long-term needs.

Our first mission is to establish liability for the car accident, truck accident or motorcycle crash that caused the injury. We have a professional investigator on staff, and our accomplished attorneys have handled thousands of cases.

We then work with physicians, vocational specialists, economists and other professionals to determine fair compensation and coverage for:

  • Physical therapy
  • Modified vans or home modifications
  • Wheelchairs and other medical equipment
  • Nursing or assisted living care
  • Psychological counseling
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Job re-training
  • Pain and suffering

The insurance company may balk if the disabled person had a degenerative condition, especially if it was never diagnosed or treated before the accident. Our lawyers have prevailed in such cases by bringing in experts to testify that the person would not have become paralyzed but for the crash.

We know there are dark days ahead before life after a spinal cord injury gets back to something approaching "normal." We are here to help with that transition by providing access to care and financial stability. Call us at 877-LORENZ2 (877-567-3692).
