Serious Spinal Cord Injuries
Compassionate Support from Our Pittsburgh Personal Injury Attorneys
People seldom recover from spinal cord injuries. Whether the result of a
motorcycle accident, or a
construction site mishap, spinal cord and serious back injuries are life changing. When
the injury was caused by the negligence or misconduct of another party,
victims have the right to seek compensation and damages that can help
the victim cope with his or her changed circumstances.
The Ongoing Cost of a Spinal Cord Injury
At the Pittsburgh Law Office of Melvin L. Vatz, our attorneys have many
years of experience helping injured people and their families, including
those who have suffered a spinal cord injury. Victims of such injuries
will need ongoing lifetime care.
This care is expensive, including the costs of:
- Continuing physical therapy
- Physician visits
- Special adaptive equipment
Added to this, individuals with paraplegia or quadriplegia usually require
the assistance of an in-home helper to undertake the daily tasks of living,
such as dressing and preparing meals.
Our lawyers understand that people who have experienced an injury to the
spinal cord have extraordinary needs. We focus on obtaining compensation
so that they can receive the needed care and assistance.

Thorough Preparation of Your Injury Claim
We are known for our thorough preparation of injury cases, whether those
cases proceed to trial or are settled by the insurance company. We develop
a detailed life plan, including the cost of the ongoing care required
by the victim.
We analyze the impact of having a spouse, son, or daughter with quadriplegia
or paraplegia in the home and work with vocational experts to determine
the amount of income and contribution to the family economy could have
been expected over the course of the injured person's lifetime. We
also film the injured person as he or she tries to get through an ordinary
day. This evidence is part of a strong claim for damages and compensation
for the cost of lifetime care.
