NYC Paralysis Injury
There are many different ways in which a person might suffer a spinal injury that leads to paralysis, and thousands of people in American will experience a similar injury every year. Accidents on the job such as a construction accident, scaffold accident, slip and fall or trip and fall incidents can result in a spinal injury and paralysis, as well as a severe auto accidents, including a large truck accident, motorcycle accident or SUV accidents. Another cause of paralysis could be medical malpractice. At Stephen Bilkis & Associates, our NYC Paralysis Lawyer staff has found that many of these accidents were caused by someone else's negligence and could have been prevented.
Whatever the reason for the spinal injury, head injury, back injury, brain injury and resulting paralysis, (paralysis is defined as one's inability to move parts of their body), it can be a devastating injury on you and your family. For someone who suffers paralysis, there could be ongoing physical or occupation therapy, use of medical devices such as wheelchairs or other mobility apparatus, medicines and surgeries. If you are suffering from a spinal injury and facing paralysis, let our experienced NYC Paralysis Lawyer team at Stephen Bilkis & Associates help you determine your legal stance.
An insurance company will likely offer a compensation package for your pain and suffering, and this offer may be tempting but will not begin to stack up to the numerous long-term expenses caused by a spinal cord injury and paralysis. Lost wages and benefits, medical bills, physical therapy, and the toll from the mental and physical pain can become permanent aspects of one's life.
There is no medical cure available yet for permanent spinal cord injury and paralysis. Doctors could prescribe drugs to ease the pain or control the swelling of a spinal cord injury, and others will need to undergo surgery to stabilize the damage. The financial windfall from a spinal cord injury and paralysis could amount to a great deal. Our NYC Paralysis Lawyer group will help you with your legal fight as you deal with a spinal cord injury and/or paralysis.
