Spinal Cord Injuries

Helping Clients Suffering From Spinal Cord Injuries

A spinal cord injury (SCI) often results after a traumatic accident damages the spinal cord or nerve tracts that relay signals to the spinal cord. Even bruising of and pressure on the spinal cord can cause significant pain and suffering. If you or a family member were hurt in an accident resulting in a spinal cord injury, the veteran spinal cord injury attorneys of Greenberg Stone & Urbano know the legal challenges you face, and they want to assist you now.

Experienced Legal Counsel

At Greenberg Stone & Urbano, we have broad experience handling many types of cases involving spinal cord injuries, and we have successfully litigated numerous multimillion-dollar claims on behalf of our clients. Our firm's attorneys have recovered substantial verdicts and settlements for injured clients in Miami and throughout South Florida.

No matter the severity or nature of your spinal injury, Greenberg Stone & Urbano lawyers have over 130 years of pooled experience delivering effective representation in spinal cord injury cases and know exactly how to present your case in the best light to both insurance adjusters and courts.

Legal Strategy In Spinal Cord Injury Cases

One thing many clients underestimate is the importance of securing legal counsel quickly in spinal cord cases. You are more likely to maximize legal recovery if you obtain knowledgeable legal counsel to help build your case strategically from the start. Our firm's lawyers know how important it is to preserve evidence and document your injury by working with your medical team.

Likewise, it is crucial to interview potential witnesses while the accident is clear in their minds. Such testimony is very powerful in a personal injury case. It is better to gather testimony before the defense speaks with witnesses to avoid bias.

Once retained, our Miami-based spinal cord injury lawyers promptly and aggressively investigate your case, obtaining all medical records to learn the full extent of your spinal cord injury. Building from that solid understanding of your injuries, our legal team sets out your case in the most persuasive light. Because your case may be presented to a jury, our attorneys work with the complicated medical evidence to present it in a way that the average person can readily understand it. Our firm is proficient at working with graphic designers and other experts to develop visual aids to improve your odds of recovery.

Today's new technologies lend themselves to breaking down the complex nature of spinal cord injuries. Always on top of new litigation trends in spinal cord injury cases, our attorneys are able to use new charting technology, and even computer animation to make sure your jury understands your case. Even if your case is settled before trial, such persuasive evidence helps drive settlements in your favor.

Securing Compensation For Spinal Cord Injury Victims

Our firm understands the goals of spinal cord injury victims. We know you are concerned that your medical and other expenses are paid, including future treatments relating to your injuries. You may also be entitled to damages for your pain, suffering, mental anguish, as well as lost wages. Spinal cord injury victims often require extensive physical therapy, expensive medications and medical equipment, and perhaps even at-home modifications to allow you to function at home with the physical limitation caused by your injury.

Our experience handling numerous spinal cord cases allows us to evaluate your injury and predict your future needs. At Greenberg Stone & Urbano, our attorneys have helped clients with quadriplegia and paraplegia. We have seen clients suffering from lacerations, lower back injuries and nerve damage. We will make sure all your needs are handled quickly and responsibly.

If your injuries were caused by someone else's negligence or wrongful acts, holding that person accountable by making sure your recovery provides for all of your expenses, as well as your future needs, is the principal goal of Greenberg Stone & Urbano.
