Norfolk Spinal Cord Injury Attorneys

Helping You Get What You Need to Handle Your Injuries

If you are one of the 200,000 Americans suffering the consequences of spinal cord injury, you already know the terrible strain this condition can place on people’s lives. Every year, more than 12,000 people suffer spinal injuries, and some victims are left partially or completely paralyzed for life.

The effects of total dependence upon others to carry out simple daily activities can be devastating, and insurance companies often refuse to recognize the enormous psychological and financial pressures which result from spinal cord injuries.

To discuss your case with our dedicated Norfolk spinal injury lawyers, please call Kalfus & Nachman PC at (855) 880-8163 for free today.

Causes of Spinal Cord Injury

There are various factors that can cause spinal cord injury, but by far the most common is automobile crashes, accounting for a shocking 42% of all cases.

Other causes include:

  • Falling
  • Violence involving gunshots
  • Sports injuries
  • Injuries from recreational activities

Effects of Spinal Cord Injury

Whatever the cause of the injury, the victim and the victim’s family are left in a position of devastating emotional and financial hardship.

The physical hardships of spinal cord injury are equally devastating, as victims cope with a variety of related conditions, including:

  • Broken or fractured back
  • Spinal cord compression
  • Paralysis
  • Paraplegia
  • Quadriplegia
  • Loss of bladder or bowel control
  • Loss of sexual functioning

Counting the Cost

The fear and distress of living with the consequences of spinal cord injury can never be fully compensated. With the average age for spinal cord injury at just 39 years old, many previously hard-working people are left unable to make a living and need some way of securing their future. A glance at the financial costs of treating this condition shows just how vital it is to obtain clear legal guidance as soon as possible after the injury occurs.

The estimated lifetime costs for a person injured at the age of 25 can easily top $3 million during that person’s remaining lifetime. If you are suffering the effects of a spinal cord injury, you likely feel overwhelmed and ill-equipped to fight for your rights with insurers and other involved parties. It is essential to get fast, professional legal advice from an experienced Norfolk spinal cord injury attorney.Our firm serves clients in and around Norfolk, Newport News, Roanoke, and all of Virginia.
