How Our Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer Can Help You
First, we want to make sure you seek treatment for your injuries. We can help keep track of the care that you receive, so that you do not worry about organizing it later. Next, we need to determine the cause of the injury. This could include accident reconstruction, interviews and much more. Then, we work with you and your family to decide how to proceed. This could include settling with an insurance company or taking your case to court. We often base these decisions are on the long-term care you will need, as well as how grossly negligent the other party was.
A Spinal Cord Injury Can Affect You Years After Your Accident
At Targan Pender & Strickland, P.C., we understand that the effects of a spinal cord injury can be long-term and require ongoing medical care for years, or even for the rest of your life. This may include in-home nursing care, as well. On the other hand, in some cases, the long-term nature of your injury may not be immediately obvious. Whatever the case, you have the right to seek damages from the responsible party. When we approach your case, we calculate these costs for you, including tangible (medical bills, nursing care, etc.) and intangible (loss of companionship, etc).
