Back, spinal cord and neck injuries of any kind change the lives of survivors and families. A serious spinal cord injury resulting in paralysis, paraplegia, or quadriplegia will change your life forever. But even less catastrophic back injuries have life-long effects, such as loss of strength in hands and arms, inability to stand for long periods of time, limited range of movement, and chronic pain.
If you or a loved one suffered a spinal cord injury, crushed or broken vertebrae, or any other serious back injury in a motorcycle accident or bicycle accident, let the San Francisco injury lawyers at Choulos Choulos & Wyle help you get the financial compensation you need.
Our injury attorneys are dedicated to holding negligent, reckless car and truck drivers accountable for the injuries they’ve caused to bikers and motorcyclists. Contact our law office if you or a loved one suffered a spinal cord injury.
Bikers who have suffered spinal cord injuries will need immediate, intensive medical care as well as months of physical therapy to regain the maximum degree of independence possible. In cases of paralysis, the injured person and his or her family will need to consider modifications to the home, a modified van or car, and other adaptive equipment.
Medical, rehabilitative, and other expenses relating to the spinal cord injury can be covered by an insurance settlement or verdict in a personal injury lawsuit.
The injured person may or may not be able to return to the work that they did before. They may need job retraining. Or they may not be able to work. Current and future lost wages are also recoverable.
Once a settlement or verdict has been reached, you cannot ask for more money later. It’s important to understand the full financial costs now and in the future in order to get the money you will need. That is why the injury attorney at Choulos Choulos & Wyle work with medical and rehabilitation experts as well as economists and life care planners. We make sure you receive the full financial compensation you deserve.
If your financial recovery rests in the hands of a jury, it is vitally important that each jury member understand how your life has changed and the challenges you face. At Choulos Choulos & Wyle, our lawyers create day-in-the-life videos to help jurors both sympathize and understand that a financial award is not a windfall for the injured person-it’s essential for daily living.
