Our law firm takes great pride in helping people who have been injured after an accident.
One of our client stories involves a construction work accident that paralyzed a young father. The man had been taking down some steel beams when he was hit from behind. Unfortunately, the steel beam struck the worker in the back of his head and neck, resulting in a spinal cord injury. He was knocked unconscious and awoke in the hospital to hear the doctor telling his wife and children that he likely wouldn’t be able to walk again.
With his family depending on him, the young father knew that he had to do everything in his power to assist in his recuperation. His motivation translated into doing extra days of therapy. That fight ultimately helped him advance to using a walker.
An accident victim who has been seriously injured generally needs to devote all of his or her energy and attention on recuperation, rehabilitation therapies and the fight to regain health. For that reason, when another individual’s negligence caused the accident, the accident victim needs to place their trust in an aggressive, experienced legal advocate to fight for their rights.
In this case, our law firm knew that the young father would be worried about providing for his family. On top of that, there were substantial medical costs, as well as estimated future treatment expenses. We worked hard to gain a complete picture of the compensation that the young father could pursue. If you have been injured, contact an attorney to determine whether you have a potential claim under personal injury and/or workers’ compensation law.
