Spinal Cord and Brain Injury
Spinal Cord and Brain Injuries are the most devastating types of injuries not only for victims but for their families. Unfortunately, someone who suffers one of these catastrophic injuries potentially will live their lives with other problems including:
- Inability to control motor functions
- Difficulty speaking
- Memory problems
- Mental illnesses
- Emotional problems
- Sexual and reproductive problems
While the reasons for injury can vary from a seemingly minor car accident to a serious injury caused by a gunshot, chances are that any injury to the brain or spinal cord are going to result in long term care needed for the victim.
At Pacific Attorney Group we are committed to ensuring that you get the compensation that will be needed. Victims of brain and spinal cord injuries generally require months and months of rehabilitative therapy, hospitalization, surgery and extensive and very expensive long term care. In addition, these victims may need medications or daily care for the rest of their lives as a result of their pain and disability.
It is important that victims of any violent accident are aware that some brain injuries are so mild that you may not even be aware of them immediately following an accident. At Pacific Attorney Group we understand that over time seemingly mild head trauma can result in severe disabilities, depression and more.
Too often spinal cord injuries may result in loss of body functions including bladder and bowel control, sexual functions and other difficulties that you might not even be considering when you’ve been diagnosed with this type of an injury. Spinal cord injures devastate families financially as well as emotionally and are often compounded when you realize that these injuries could have been prevented if someone wasn’t negligent.
Brain injuries often change someone’s life irrevocably and result in life changing events for family members and loved ones as well. Many brain injury victims can never return to work, require constant care and may never be able to move or hold a simple conversation.
Financial and emotional effects of spinal cord and brain injuries are long lasting. We understand that settlements of any amount can’t compensate for the drastic changes to your life or the life of your loved one, but we can help relieve the costs of treatments, wages, pain and suffering and other financial burdens that you and your family may be faced with.
If you or a loved one has sustained any type of a spinal or brain injury it is important that you contact a personal injury lawyer with no ties to insurance companies. At Pacific Attorney Group we never work for insurance companies, instead we work hard to make sure that the victims of spinal cord and brain injury get the compensation they are entitled to.
