If you suffer a spinal cord injury, it is considered to be the most serious type of back injury. In most cases, your injury will leave you paralyzed from the waist down or possibly even from the neck down. Needless to say, your life and that of your family will instantly be forever changed. Sadly, many of these injuries occur due to the negligence of others, such as drivers who get behind the wheel of their vehicle while drunk or high on drugs. Yet whatever type of accident caused your spinal cord injury, hold those responsible accountable for their actions by speaking to spinal cord and back injury attorneys at Tobler Law to learn how you can gain maximum compensation for your injuries.
When you are paralyzed, you will unfortunately get to know the inside of a hospital very well. Since serious injuries such as these often require extended medical treatment that likely will last the rest of your life, medical expenses will be enormous. Therefore, always work with an attorney who can accurately estimate your long-term medical expenses.
Depending on your occupation prior to the spinal cord injury, you may never be able to resume a job you once loved going to each day. Even if you will be able to eventually return to work, you will be off from your job for several months or longer while you go through physical therapy and recuperate. While it would be nice if medical bills and other regular expenses took a hiatus during this time, the real world does not work this way. Because of this, rely on your personal injury attorney from Tobler Law to seek compensation for income you have already lost as well as future income that may also be lost.
Along with medical expenses and lost income, your attorney may also seek compensation for pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of companionship if you are married, and possibly punitive damages if the negligence that caused your injury was extreme. If you need help gaining the compensation you deserve, schedule your consultation today with Tobler Law, Tempe AZ Personal Injury Lawyers.
