The Tawwater Law Firm: Legal Help for Spinal Cord Injury Victims
When the spinal cord is damaged, paralysis can result. A spinal cord injury can result in paraplegia (paralysis from the waist down) or quadriplegia (paralysis from the neck down), depending on the site of the injury.
People with spinal cord injuries require ongoing medical care and a lifetime of assistance with the tasks of daily living. They may need 24-hour nursing care, specially equipped vans, electric wheelchairs, medical equipment and modifications to make their homes handicapped accessible. The costs can be staggering.
At the Tawwater Law Firm, our attorneys are experienced in helping people with spinal cord injuries receive the full amount of financial compensation they deserve. Our clients with spinal cord injuries include:
We will hire a life care planner to determine our client's needs, and an economist to plan for meeting current and future financial needs. Then we advocate aggressively on our client's behalf.
