Accident survivors who sustain spinal cord injuries deserve access to the treatment they need. Survivors and their families endure a hefty emotional and financial burden following a tragic accident that led to a devastating spinal injury. At Karnas Law Firm, we strive to obtain the maximum compensation survivors and families need to work through this difficult time. If you have recently sustained a spinal cord injury due to another party’s negligence or reckless actions, our Tucson spinal cord injury lawyers can help you understand your legal options and provide the attentive representation you deserve.
How Catastrophic Spinal Injuries Change your Life
Spinal cord injuries can manifest in a variety of ways. Paralysis, paraplegia or quadriplegia are among the most common. These conditions incur a lifetime of expense and cause considerable pain and suffering. A person who suffers a severe spinal injury can require medical treatment and rehabilitation for years. It may be necessary to enroll in vocational rehabilitation and physical therapy. One might need long-term care, vehicle and home modifications, mobility devices, and more to facilitate mobility. Survivors often cannot return to their original careers and sometimes may not be able to acquire gainful employment at all.
These changes collectively contribute to a state of emotional and financial hardship on survivors and their immediate families. The Tucson spinal cord injury attorneys who work for Karnas Law Firm proactively seek justice for survivors. We believe the parties responsible should be held accountable for their wrongful actions and should bear the burden of paying for the unexpected expenses survivors incur due to their injuries.
