Back and Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer
A severe injury to the back or spine can cause short and long-term disabilities, pain and even paralysis. When a back or spinal cord injury occurs as a result of a negligent accident, the person or entity responsible may be liable for damages. At Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law, we handle catastrophic injury claims such as back and spinal cord injuries, helping our clients pursue compensation to cover their losses and give them the care they need.
Back and spinal cord injuries can range from a herniated disc to quadriplegia. Sudden or severe impact is often the cause of severe injuries, common in auto accidents, falls and crushing accidents. The back and spine are an intricate network of bones, nerves, muscles and other tissues. Severe impact can cause damage that may not be completely reversible, resulting in long term disability, pain or functional issues.
Legal Options for Back or Spine Injuries
Those who have a catastrophic back or spinal cord injury may face years of medical treatment and other costs for their care. Surgery, therapy, medications and other equipment may be required, costing a fortune in medical bills. In addition, there may be time lost from work or permanent disability, resulting in loss of income. These tangible expenses, along with the emotional and physical pain caused by the accident, are damages that can be sought in a catastrophic injury claim against the negligent party.
In a severe injury accident claim, it is vital to prove two facts to be awarded compensation. First, that the injury was caused by the negligent actions of the defendant. Second, that there were tangible and intangible losses caused by the injury to the plaintiff. At Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law, we have won multi-million-dollar lawsuits on behalf of our clients, obtaining the compensation they need to make their lives easier after a catastrophic injury accident.
