Spinal Cord Injuries
A Significant Impact
The spinal cord can be damaged at any level and to a varied extent. Suffering a spinal cord injury often results in significant life changes. When the accident that causes a spinal cord injury was the result of another person’s negligence, it can be difficult to figure out how to move forward and what to do first. This is a very trying time for the victim and their family both physically and emotionally. Our team at Graves and Richard can help.
Our lawyers are experienced in working with the victims of spinal cord injuries and their families, and can coordinate a team of specialists to determine your best course of treatment. We can be your advocate and work to secure insurance benefits and other means to maximize your compensation and ease part of your burden following such a serious accident.
The Help You Need
At Graves and Richard, we will work with you and the insurance company to secure the resources you need. The services you may require include, but are not limited to, physical therapy, occupational therapy, nursing, attendant care, vocational counselling, wheelchair assistance, and home modification.
