Spinal Cord Injury Claims in Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia

Spinal cord injuries are among the most debilitating and catastrophic personal injuries you can sustain. There are a number of accidents that can lead to a spinal cord injury including:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Medical Malpractice

When you sustain a spinal cord injury in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, getting full compensation will not be as easy as making an insurance claim. In fact, many insurance companies will work to minimize the amount of money you receive, leaving you to suffer through the devastating financial and personal damages of these injuries on your own.

The spinal cord injury attorneys at The Cochran Firm DC are experienced in handling claims in Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia, and we know how insurance companies work. We also know the tricks and tactics they will use to manipulate you into accepting a settlement that is inadequate to cover all of your damages. As our verdicts and settlements can attest, we have never backed down to these powerful companies. We will do everything possible to make sure your injuries are taken seriously and you are provided with everything you will need to recover.

Types of Spinal Cord Injuries

Recovery from a spinal cord injury may be impossible. Recovery will depend on the type of spinal cord injury you sustain. The two types of spinal cord injuries are complete and incomplete. With an incomplete spinal cord injury, you may still have some ability to move parts of your body below your injury. Complete spinal cord injuries, on the other hand, will make movement impossible.

Both types of spinal cord injuries can have consequences including:

  • Loss of sensation
  • Loss of mobility
  • Loss of bowel and bladder control
  • Loss of sexual function
  • Impacted breathing capacity
  • Extreme pain from nerve damage

The type and location of your injury will determine the extent of your suffering, but all victims of accidents resulting in spinal cord injury will face some loss of function and a much different future.

When you are injured in an accident, you should consider seeking compensation for all of your damages. In a spinal cord injury claim, damages may include medical expenses, home modifications, rehabilitation expenses, lost wages, loss of future income, physical pain, and emotional suffering. Insurance companies will do everything possible to ensure you receive as little compensation as possible. The attorneys at The Cochran Firm DC work tirelessly to pursue the full amount of compensation you deserve.
