Helping You Focus On Adjusting To The “New Normal” After a Serious Accident
While accidents can and do happen, some are truly life changing. Debilitating injuries, which are a result of the carelessness or thoughtlessness of others, are likely to send you and your loved ones searching for answers. Faced with crippling medical bills, years of rehabilitation, and an uncertain financial future, determining who is responsible for an accident becomes the top priority as you and your family prepare for the road ahead.
The catastrophic personal injury lawyers at Slack Davis Sanger will form a caring and understanding bond with you, while working tirelessly toward the best possible outcomes in these emotionally difficult and legally challenging claims. Because the cases are so complex, judges may have different factors to take into account when awarding damages in catastrophic cases. We may be able to secure compensation for you to cover home and vehicle modifications, loss of future earnings, lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering, property damage, rehabilitation, and vocational training.
Tenacious Catastrophic Injury Attorneys Serving As Powerful Advocates For Clients
The law requires individuals to do everything they can—at all times—to act in a responsible manner and avoid putting anyone else at risk. When wrongful conduct leads to an accident—particularly one with life-long consequences—the process of choosing which lawyers have the knowledge of tort law, the negotiation skills and the passion to pursue your claim is absolutely critical. Each personal injury case is best served by an attorney who specializes in that particular type of case. For example, if you are pursuing legal action because of a spinal cord injury, it is ideal to have an attorney who has already dealt with numerous spinal cord injury cases.
Feeling helpless in the face of both your physical recovery and your mental anguish in the aftermath of a devastating accident is understandable. As you handle a seemingly endless cycle of medical care, you need a legal team to help you take back your life. Our personal injury attorneys will identify all possible responsible parties for your injuries and negotiating a fair settlement. Our goal is to give you the peace of mind to navigate your next steps.
Traumatic Brain Injuries & Spinal Cord Injuries
Each year, between 80,000 and 90,000 individuals experience a head injury which results in a long-term disability. Between 50% to 70% of these traumatic brain injuries were sustained in a motor vehicle accident, while recreational activities represent about one-fifth of these accidents among children and adolescents in the United States. The estimate of Americans currently living with a spinal cord injury is between 247,000 to around 358,000 people. A major injury to the spinal cord can lead to loss of feeling, severe pain, respiratory problems, weakness, and loss of motor function. Cervical, lumbar and thoracic spinal injuries are all forms of severe spinal cord injuries. Some of these injuries could have been prevented if drivers did not operate a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, if workplace hazards were removed, and if safety precautions were followed during recreational activities. These types of injuries can be life-altering, resulting in significant medical bills, lost wages, rehabilitation costs, and out-of-pocket expenses—often with a related emotional toll. If you or a loved one was involved in a traumatic brain injury or spinal cord accident where a third party was at fault, the personal injury lawyers at Slack Davis Sanger can evaluate your situation and build a strong case built on in-depth grasp of tort law.
