Compensation for Spinal Cord Injury Victims
Spinal cord injuries, like other trauma, can leave victims with lasting reduction in their quality of life. If said spinal cord injury is a direct result of another party’s negligent behavior, you may be entitled to damages. Through personal injury litigation you can hold those responsible for your spinal cord injury accountable.
Should you have suffered as a direct result of someone’s negligence you can receive compensation for the following:
Medical Bills — Trips to the hospital, general practitioner and physical therapist can be expensive. If you were injured as a result of someone else’s actions, you should have your medical bills covered. Accurately compile and record the total of your expenses, as it will be necessary in attempting to recover said damages.
Lost Wages — If you have suffered a severe injury, like spinal cord damage, you will more than likely have missed time at your occupation. By filing a personal injury suit, you can receive compensation for your lost wages. Both past and future unpaid hours can be part of the damages you seek in court.
Cost of Future Medical Care — Catastrophic injuries typically require repeated, frequent medical attention. If you suffer as a result of someone else’s actions, you could be entitled to future medical expense compensation. It is important to have medical support to verify your claims.
Pain and Suffering — Due to the severe nature of spinal cord injuries, they can often be accompanied by immense physical pain and suffering. And, you are entitled to recover for the emotional distress caused by such psychological impact of these injuries.
Wrongful Death — If a spinal cord injury causes death due to the negligence of another loved ones are entitled to compensation for their loss. This can include funeral and burial expenses, cost of pre-death medical care, emotional distress of the loss, lost financial contribution, lost services and support, as well as the loss of companionship and consortium.
To establish liability on the part of the other party in your traumatic accident, you must prove one of the following:
Negligence — The other party committed a preventable error or mistake causing injury.
Recklessness — The responsible party could not control their actions due to rage or intoxication, or a complete disregard for another’s safety.
Intent — The other party meant to cause injury or death.
Therefore, it is necessary to consult an personal injury attorney at Barkan Meizlish LLP. We can assist you in proving your case involved one of the above on the part of responsible party.

“Bob DeRose was a huge help in getting my complaint settled. They were responsive and a huge help with all my questions. Would recommend them to anyone who needs help!”
“Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value
My experience with this Law firm was phenomenal. I found my way into their offices after an unexpected workplace injury. Initially I was clueless about their performance.
The fact that I was not merely looking out for a supplement for my financial budget, I was simply there to explore whatever compensation was due me since the injury legitimately occcured “during and in the course of my employment”.
After an initial visit to the offices where the necessary documentation were initiated, the rest were simply a phone call for updates. Sometimes it was even needless.
They frankly discussed the pathway as well as the unpredictability of the timing for the process.This was necessary. I took that in good faith. The fact that there was no upfront payment was also a good thing.
Without monitoring my calendar, I waited patiently for the various
phases of the process to unfold.
Finally the claim was settled with so much transparency. The unpredictable journey ended with a check delivered to my mailbox.
In fact communications from this Law office is always expedient. The Front Desk Associate was very helpful and polite at all times. My attorney’s paralegal was always available to play her part whenever necessary.“
“They are top-notch attorneys who are experts in their fields. They do great work and are easy to work with. They care about their clients and always try to do the best job possible for them.”
“Bob and his team is amazing. He is very nice, understanding and communicative. He is honest. They don’t try to rip you off or make you keep your case open. I would trust him in future matters.”
“I had an amazing experience working with Sandy and Robin on my case. Robin was just a short email or call away from all of my questions. The communication I had with Sandy was just as great. Both Sandy and Robin made sure I knew exactly what was going on with my case at all times. I will be recommending them to others. If I ever need help legal matters in the future, I know I can get the help from Sandy Meizlish.”
