Head and Spinal Cord Injuries

Traumatic Brain and Head Injuries

Any brain or spinal cord injury can mean serious and long-term consequences for victims and their families.  After an accident, you should seek legal assistance with one of our experienced attorneys as soon as possible to ensure that you are receiving appropriate medical treatment and that you have someone to advocate and protect your rights.  Kanner & Pintaluga focuses on helping our clients get the financial assistance they need after an accident.

Spinal Cord InjuryOur attorneys understand that a spinal cord injury completely changes the victim’s life and often times those who undertake care for the victim.  Seemingly insurmountable medical costs arise from paralysis and are often extremely difficult to measure and calculate into the future.  Ongoing medical care and specialized treatment almost always factor into spinal cord injury claims.  In representing spinal cord injury victims, our lawyers account for and understand that adaptive technologies and medical technologies are always evolving.  Due to the fluid nature of spinal cord injury care in the medical field, our lawyers understand and fight for settlements that take this into consideration with a budget that allocates and accounts for improved medical devices.  We also understand the importance of evaluating and acquiring current and former compensation from the victim’s place of employment including health care insurance and retirement benefits.

Traumatic Brain InjuryTraumatic brain injury is caused by unexpected or blunt force to the head such as an object penetrating the skull and impacting the brain, or the head making impact with some object.  When representing clients in this area, our lawyers emphasize the importance of obtaining long-term compensation with traumatic brain injury.  In order for victims to make significant recovery in many cases, these types of injury accidents may require ongoing treatments, surgery, speech therapy, physical therapy, psychiatric therapy, occupational therapy, and other medical rehabilitation services in an attempt to achieve maximum recovery.  Our experienced brain injury lawyers will help you receive monetary compensation for all brain injury related expenses.

Consequences of Head and Spine InjuriesHead, neck, spine, and brain injuries can potentially cause significant cognitive deficits, leaving many victims unable to care for themselves, speak, or even continue to stay employed.  Particularly, spine injuries may result in some form of paralysis, such as paraplegia or quadriplegia.  These are extremely serious conditions which often require years and years of future medical care along with the anticipated cost of care.  Our attorneys have the experience necessary to calculate the total cost of the injury including scenarios for future medical care.  Our attorneys then work to prove that the injury was caused by negligence and calculate the total cost of the injury.  To learn more, contact our experienced head injury attorneys.
