A diagnosis of a spinal cord injury can have permanent life-altering effects for you and your family. Because the spinal cord serves as the highway of communication between the brain and the rest of your body, a spinal cord injury can cause a host of secondary conditions that affect your quality of life.
Some common complications of a spinal cord injury include paralysis, sensory disorders, bladder and bowel dysfunction, respiratory infections, and loss of muscle control.
The party responsible for your spinal cord injury depends on the specifics of your case. Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of spinal cord injuries, but they can also be caused by slips, trips and falls, medical malpractice, construction site injuries, sports and recreational injuries, or defective products.
It is vital that we begin an investigation into the circumstances and facts surrounding your spinal cord injury as soon as possible following the injury. The statute of limitations is based upon the type of accident or claim, so it is best to seek legal guidance from our law firm.
The legal team at Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C. want to help you and your family through this difficult experience and provide legal advice for you to file a medical malpractice, product liability or personal injury claim. Our spinal cord injury lawyers aggressively pursue your claim by negotiating with the insurance company for a fair settlement that will cover your current medical bills, future medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
If negotiations fail, our spinal cord injury attorneys will file a spinal injury lawsuit to pursue justice and compensation for your Michigan spinal cord injury. A spinal cord lawsuit can provide the funds you need to care for yourself and your family.
