Spinal Cord Injury Lawsuits

More than 10,000 people in the United States suffer spinal cord injuries each year. Spinal cord injuries happen when the spinal cord is subjected to extreme trauma which either damages the nerves, or in the worst situations, severs the actual cord. Such debilitating injuries to the spinal cord may unfortunately result in paraplegia or quadriplegia.  While motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of spinal cord injuries, they may also occur from falls off of roofs, from ladders, in shootings, or even during recreational activities, such as diving into an improperly marked or constructed swimming pool.

To ensure you are fully and fairly compensated, the spinal cord injury lawyers at Gilman Law LLP will work with top experts in accident reconstruction  and use state-of-the-art courtroom exhibits to explain how and why your accident occurred, and identify who was responsible. Because any spinal cord injury can create lifelong medical needs, we also work with specialists in fields such as economics, actuarial science and vocational rehabilitation to maximize compensation and provide you and your family with the resources needed to rebuild your life and live it to the fullest.

If you or someone you care about suffered a serious spinal cord injury in a negligent accident, it’s important to call our Florida personal injury lawyers today, so they can begin working on your claim as soon as possible.  Waiting could allow important evidence in your case to be destroyed, making recovery of compensation far more difficult, or even impossible.
