Complications and Conditions associated with Spinal Cord Injuries

  • Quadriplegia
  • Crushed vertebra
  • Spinal stenosis

The Financial Consequences of a Spinal Cord Injury

While initial medical costs associated with a spinal cord injury are usually easy to quantify, loss in quality of life and the potential for serious side effects is not. In order to leverage our client’s case in the face of resistance on the part of insurance companies to pay a fair settlement, our medical experts discuss potential health complications that could arise and the costs associated with them. Our attorney also consults psychologists who explain the emotional impact of a spinal cord injury on our client and the psychological effects of depression and trauma.

Providing Future Care after a Spinal Cord or Lower Back Injury

People suffering from spinal cord injuries are often unable to work. For this reason, it’s important to provide means for their support with any proceeds from a personal injury settlement or award. As your attorney, Scott M. Donaldson will explain how a structured settlement or special needs trust can help you. A structured settlement or special needs trust provides a means of financial support for a spinal cord injury victim while exempting award and settlement proceeds from certain kinds of taxes and Medicaid eligibility calculations.
