A Candid and Insightful Assessment of your Case

Paralysis may be caused by birth trauma, spinal cord injury, an infection such as meningitis, or lack of oxygen (brain hypoxia). A wide-variety of causes can lead to paraplegia, quadriplegia, or full paralysis, but all such cases have at least one thing in common: the injury will dramatically change a person's life forever. While the injury may be treated, there is a high likelihood the catastrophe will continue to exert its influence for a very long time. At our law firm, we know these types of traumas have ripple effects. Adaptations to your home and your vehicles; medical care by leading experts; physical therapy; alterations to your career aspirations; the deep impact on your daily life. Paralysis is life changing.

If we represent you, we will dedicate our considerable resources to the evaluation, investigation, and litigation of your case.

At your initial meeting with us, we will collect details about your situation and, most importantly, listen to your story. After we have gathered preliminary information, we will offer a candid assessment of your case: what are its merits? what are the challenges? what are the chances of success? Because we accept cases on contingency, we will not represent you if we do not believe we can win. You should know, however, we often take cases that have been turned down by other law firms. We are also successful in nearly 95% of the cases we take and have helped our clients obtain over $1 billion for their medical costs and suffering. With our law firm on your side, you will have proven medical and legal advocates that have a long history of success.
