Spinal/Back Injuries

Representing People With Back and Spinal Cord Injuries

Back and neck injuries can cause pain and suffering, be difficult to properly diagnose and require surgery, therapy and rehabilitation. They can also be difficult to prove. A spinal cord injury completely changes the life of the victim and the family. The injuries are obvious — paraplegia or quadriplegia — and the medical and care needs last a lifetime.

The attorneys at Girardi | Keese have represented clients with the full range of back, neck and spinal cord injuries. We understand the medical issues, and we have a network of experts who can assess the extent of injuries, the appropriate care needs and the financial needs of the injured person. Call us at (800) 401-4530 or send us an email to learn how we can put our resources, passion and more than 40 years of experience to work for you.

It is important to determine what caused the injury.

In any personal injury case, the lawyer needs to determine how the injury was caused and who or what entity is liable for the injuries. The worse the injury, the more important it is to establish all possible liabilities in order to obtain the necessary compensation. Our personal injury lawyers have extensive investigative experience as well as access to experts.

With a lower back injury, a neck injury, a herniated disk or fractured vertebrae, our law firm works with medical experts to understand the full extent of the injuries, how much medical care is needed and the costs of lost wages, pain and suffering and future medical needs.

A spinal cord injury is life-changing and costly.

When our client Brandon was crushed beneath an amusement park ride, he suffered a spinal cord injury and brain injury. His case illustrates the types of expenses the family faces when a child becomes quadriplegic.

More than anything, his parents and brother wanted Brandon to come home from the hospital. When he did, he required round-the-clock nursing care. The home needed more space to accommodate nurses quarters and medical equipment. The family needed a van, ramps, a wheelchair and a sling for transporting Brandon from bed to chair. Brandon could not communicate in traditional ways, but his face would light up with joy.

Equipment, nurses, medical care and additional space are necessary in such cases, and our law firm does not back down in our demands that people like Brandon and his family get all the help they need.
