El Segundo Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer

A spinal cord injury is life changing. Recovery is a long road and often the victim will never be the same again. The liable parties need to accept their responsibilities for the injuries and attempt to make the injured party whole again.

A spinal cord injury is often caused by an auto accident or some other physical trauma. Depending on where on the spinal cord the injury occurs the permanent effects can be loss of feeling, paraplegia, or quadriplegia.

The Results of a Spinal Cord Injury

A spinal cord injury is one of the most serious injuries a person can endure. The permanent effects of the injury can create new challenges for the rest of the life of the injured person.

When considering what damages or monetary restitution you may be entitled to you should consider the following:

  • Medical bills
  • Loss of wages or potential earning
  • Loss of quality of life

The idea behind damages owed in a spinal cord injury case is to attempt to make the injured party whole for their life before the accident. It is important to consider not just the medical bills from the past but also what care will be necessary in the future. And you should also take into account all the activities that you enjoyed before the accident that you are no longer able to do.

When to Consult a Lawyer

In most spinal cord injury cases that involve negligence the insurance coverage will not be adequate to fulfill the money owed to the injured party. The insurance companies will do their best to convince the injured party to take a lesser payment than what they are prepared to pay out.

A law firm like The Ryan Law Group will be able to fight the insurance companies to get the largest settlement or verdict possible. The law firm’s reputation and case history of their trial attorneys will give you a leg up in getting the insurance companies to pay up.

What Does a Spinal Cord Injury Attorney Cost

A paraplegia or quadriplegia law firm like The Ryan Law group works on a contingency basis. This means that they will fight the case and seek a settlement at no cost until a favorable outcome occurs. Their fee will then be a percent of the settlement or verdict, and this percent will be agreed upon before you hire them as your attorney.

The difference in what you hope to earn on your own versus what you’ll receive after the lawyer’s fees is often different by a large margin that ensures that hiring a lawyer makes sound financial sense.

There aren't enough words to describe how amazing my experience with Andrew Ryan was. He works very hard to ensure you have winning results. I could not have asked for someone with more expertise or knowledge pertaining to my case. From the moment I first called until my case was over, I was at ease that I has made the right choice. Thank you Andrew!
