Compensation After A Catastrophic Injury
A spinal cord injury (SCI) is one of the most life-altering types of injuries a person can experience. If you have suffered such an injury in a motor vehicle or workplace accident, your recovery will likely take a long time and your family’s finances may be stressed extra tightly. At the same time, your legal case may be complicated if insurance companies try to dodge responsibility and stretch your case out with delays and denied claims.
Recovery from a spinal cord injury nearly always requires the services of an experienced personal injury attorney along with help from medical providers and other professionals such as social workers. At Warhawk Legal in Oklahoma City, you can count on us to fight hard to maximize your financial recovery. Our investigation and case preparation will be detailed, and our approach will include determination and zealous representation in negotiations, mediation or litigation.
What Can You Expect During Your SCI Recovery?
While each case is unique, the aftermath of your SCI might look something like this:
- Emergency treatment followed by hospitalization, surgery and rehabilitation
- Outfitting your life to accommodate paralysis, perhaps with a power wheelchair, a lift for transferring you from your bed to the wheelchair each day, ramps to go in and out of your house and a wheelchair-ready van
- Home remodeling or a move to a different home to allow for widened doorways, lowered counters and so on
- Ongoing therapy, medical care, occupational therapy and vocational retraining, if applicable
In addition, you may need the services of personal care attendants. To ensure that your injury claim takes all these needs into account, we may work with a life-care planner to sketch out your lifetime practical and financial support as you make your way forward with paraplegia or quadriplegia.
