California Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer
If you or a loved one has suffered a spinal cord injury, the attorneys of Wilshire Law Firm want to express our sincere wishes for your speedy and complete recovery. If that spinal cord injury was to any extent due to the negligence of others, or if an insurance company does not want to adequately compensate your losses, the legal services of our personal injury attorneys can ensure those parties uphold their obligations to restore your financial circumstances and long-term health.
Traumatic Spinal Cord Injury
Injuries to the spinal cord are many times permanent and always life-changing. They have a dramatic effect on the lives of victims and their families. Spinal cord injuries, many resulting in permanent paralysis, are often caused by the negligence of others, such as surgical errors or malpractice, recreational accidents, injuries at birth, motor vehicle collisions, industrial mishaps, defective products or machinery, and even accidental exposure to toxic chemicals. The personal injury attorneys at Wilshire Law Firm have the knowledge and practical experience in spinal cord injury litigation to ensure you receive full and fair compensation for all expense and suffering.
Victims of brain and spinal cord injuries, as well as their close friends and families, will require lawyers with specific expertise in the medical, physical, financial, and emotional impact on the victim. Our attorneys have represented numerous clients who sustained catastrophic injuries and understand that injuries to the spinal cord and brain have long-term consequences that must be addressed early to ensure all necessary treatments are received and that the victim’s financial health is not irreparably harmed.
Your Wilshire Law Firm attorneys will have extensive knowledge and competency in the fields of neuroscience, orthopedic medicine, and alternative modalities for vocational rehabilitation. We understand the necessity for life care planning and how to calculate those costs for settlement purposes. Most importantly, our lawyers have a sincere concern and compassion for our clients and their families and take pride in our work to support your recovery.
The National Center for Injury Prevention has stated that more than one million Americans suffer a serious injury to the brain or spinal cord each year. Children account for almost a third of those casualties. The costs to care and support a victim of a serious spinal cord injury over his or her lifetime are staggering. When those injuries are the result of another party’s negligent actions, we can help. Our attorneys investigate and pursue your claims with a firm resolve to mitigate the cost of medical care to you.

Recovery Is Possible After a Spinal Cord Injury
The personal injury lawyers at Wilshire Law Firm represent people who have suffered serious spine cord injuries caused by the negligence of other people or businesses. We establish proof of liability and calculate a value for equitable compensation. Our experience negotiating comprehensive settlements for many similarly-situated clients has revealed to us the upper limits that insurance companies can be made to pay in compensation for subjective claims, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, punitive damages, and loss of enjoyment of life. We understand how to define best practices for any given industry or equipment, and how to then compare those to the acts of the opposing party as proof of negligence.
Our spinal cord injury lawyers increase the probability that you will receive full compensation for loss of earnings, pain and suffering, medical expenses, and related costs. We can arrange medical treatment for clients who lack personal health insurance and would otherwise not have the means to obtain necessary treatments. Ours is a client-focused law firm. We are motivated by the needs of our clients to restore their physical and financial health following a life-changing accident. We operate with the highest of ethical standards in our dealings with you and with opposing counsel and insurers. However, we also persevere in our assertions of your claims against all parties and do not accept a result that is less than you deserve.
