The Need For An Experienced Lawyer Following A Construction Accident
Spinal cord injuries can not only end construction professionals’ careers, but they can also change the quality of life for accident victims and their families. Temporary or permanent paralysis occurs from the point of injury downward, resulting in:
- Respiratory difficulties
- Loss of bowel and bladder control
- Loss of sexual function
In construction accident claims, we pursue full and fair compensation for current and future medical expenses, lost wages, diminished earning potential, and pain and suffering. Workers’ compensation benefits do serve a purpose for some injured workers. In spinal cord injury claims, however, compensation simply does not account for the long-term and lifetime needs of injured workers confined to wheelchairs.
