Framingham Spine Injury Lawyer
Whether you’ve been paralyzed or are expected to recover, any back injury caused by someone else’s negligence deserves compensation. Find out if your case qualifies by working with a Framingham spine injury lawyer.
From the chronic pain of a herniated disc to paralysis caused by a severed spinal cord, a spine injury can dramatically change your life for the worse in a single heartbeat. In addition to the massive damage done to your quality of life, you also face the need for ongoing medical care and special equipment—and all of the financial expenses that come with both.
Many spine injuries happen in accidents such as car crashes and premises liability incidents. This means that someone else could be at fault for causing your back injury—which also means that that someone owes you a settlement to cover your damages.
A Framingham spine injury lawyer from Joel H. Schwartz, PC can help you investigate the details of your case and determine if you have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit and how much your case is worth.
The Repercussions of a Back Injury
As mentioned, a spinal injury can destroy both your quality of life and your financial reserves. For that matter, it can even make it impossible to work and earn an income. The exact nature of your back injury will determine how your life will be affected and what sort of special accommodation you might need in the future.
For example, fractured vertebrae will eventually heal, but in the interim you will experience a great deal of physical pain and have to endure limited mobility as you’ll almost certainly need to wear a back brace for an extended period of time. Depending on your job and hobbies, you may not be able to take part in either. Even after healing, you might be subject to chronic pain and increased risk for re-injury.
Some spine injuries can’t be recovered from at all. If you sustain nerve damage or a severed spinal cord, you might be permanently paralyzed. Obviously, this will completely change your lifestyle and will require wheelchairs, a handicap-accessible vehicle, and all sorts of special equipment.
Monetary Compensation for Spinal Damage
Because a back injury can so thoroughly change your life, it’s important to make certain that you get a full settlement that doesn’t leave you paying out of pocket for accident-related expenses years later.
