A brain or spinal cord injury is a life-changing event. Depending on the seriousness of the injury, you may recover completely or you may have to make permanent changes in how you live your life - which can be devastating.
At the Reinecke Law Firm, in Southern California, we believe that the job of a personal injury attorney is to help make sure you have the financial resources you deserve to support you as you recover and adjust to any permanent changes.
Hope for spinal cord injury victims: The Reinecke Law Firm is a supporter of the Christopher Reeve Paralysis Foundation, the Reeve/Irvine Research Center, and the Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center. These organizations seek to improve the lives of spinal cord injury victims through research and rehabilitation. For more information, visit our spinal cord injury website.
Most spinal cord injuries happen in motor vehicle accidents, serious falls, and sporting accidents. A severe trauma to the spinal cord can damage the soft nerve bundles that transmit messages from the brain to other parts of the body. Spinal cord damage often results in loss of sensation in movement below the area of injury: damage to the lower to mid-spine interrupts nerve signals to the legs, resulting in paraplegia; damage to the neck region additionally affects the arms and upper body, resulting in quadriplegia. A spinal cord injury can be complete, meaning there is a total loss of sensation and movement below the injury area, or incomplete, meaning there is still some feeling below the injury site.
Head and brain injuries can take many forms and cause a wide variety of symptoms and conditions, both temporary and permanent. Many accident victims suffer from closed head injuries, which result from serious blows to the head that do not break the skin but do damage the brain. Symptoms include, but are not limited to, headaches, nausea, short-term memory loss, dizziness, ringing in the ears, and personality changes. Most of the time these symptoms go away on their own, but sometimes they require more intensive diagnostic testing and therapy, and occasionally can even cause a long-term disability.
If your spinal cord or brain injury was the result of another person's negligence, you deserve to be compensated for what you have lost: medical bills, loss of earnings, impaired earning capacity, and pain and suffering. California brain injury attorney Tom Reinecke will fight to get you the maximum compensation possible so that you can afford new therapies as they become available, as well as the best that current medical technology has to offer. This includes custom wheelchairs and modifications to your home that will allow you maximum mobility and independence.
We understand that no amount of money can fully compensate you for everything you have lost. However, the settlement from a personal injury lawsuit can improve your quality of life to the degree that you can move forward with new goals.
