At Mani Ellis & Layne, PLLC, our Charleston, West Virginia personal injury attorneys assist individuals who have a spinal cord injury as the result of the negligent or reckless actions of another person. These injuries can be the result of a car accident, trucking accident, construction accident or other sudden accidents. Our firm takes on claims, fully committed to pursuing the maximum in a settlement or judgment. As the injury has resulted in permanent damage, it can be considered a catastrophic injury.
It may be impossible for the individual to work at their earlier profession, or to function in the workplace in any capacity, depending upon how much of their body is paralyzed. If you or a loved one has suffered this injury, we urge you to contact our firm and talk to a West Virginia lawyer immediately so that we can begin the process of filing a claim or lawsuit.
A spinal cord injury has extreme consequences, both physically and emotionally. The loss of mobility, sensation, and increased susceptibility to certain infections and other complications can mean a lifetime of medical care, treatments, rehabilitation, and intervention. In less serious injuries, the victim could face impaired bowel function, speech, and numbness in the arms and legs. We fully evaluate the medical situation and what is predicted relative to current and future costs, as well as the loss of income from work, and reduced earning capacity. The matter of non-economic damages must also be address in the claim. Pain and suffering and loss of quality of life are major factors in any spinal cord injury claim.
