Serious Spinal Cord Injuries

Compassionate Support from Our Pittsburgh Personal Injury Attorneys

People seldom recover from spinal cord injuries. Whether the result of a car, truck, or 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.
