When paralysis results from an accident, it raises the stakes of a personal injury lawsuit immensely. Victims will need long-term care and often are unable to continue performing their job. Medical specialists, physical therapists and psychological counseling are typically necessary.
At Berg Law Office, Attorney Eric Berg represents victims who face paraplegia or quadriplegia as a result of an accident caused by someone else’s negligence. These cases are complex and highly emotional. They are also aggressively defended by insurance company attorneys who fight to limit the amount that is paid out.
Dedication And Diligence Are Essential
Eric understands the complicated medical and financial evidence that is required to build a strong personal injury case. He firm frequently enlists testimony from life-care professionals and other specialists who explain in detail the costs involved in transitioning to life as a paraplegic or quadriplegic.
Eric is always prepared to advocate on his clients’ behalf when a fair agreement cannot be reached through negotiation.
In addition to recovering compensation for all current and future medical costs, the victims in these cases often require extensive modifications to their homes and a handicap-accessible van to accommodate their needs. Vocational retraining may also be necessary.
In addition to recovering lost income and lost future earnings, it may be possible for a spouse to seek damages for loss of consortium.
