Spinal Cord Injuries

Attorneys representing clients in Eastern Connecticut who have suffered disability or loss of livelihood due to a spinal cord injury

If your spinal cord is injured in an accident, the effects can last a lifetime. Spinal cord injuries require ongoing medical treatments, and impact an individual’s ability to work and function.

Anderson Trial Lawyers will pursue fair compensation that takes into account the long-term expenses arising from serious spinal cord injuries. Our team works to thoroughly document the cause and financial impact of your injuries to get you the verdict or settlement you deserve.

Spinal Injury Examples

Spinal cord injuries can stem from numerous different kinds of accidents, including:

Investigating The Cause Of A Spinal Cord Accident

It’s not uncommon for an insurance company to try to blame a victim for their injury in order to reduce the amount they pay out in claims and settlements. Insurers may argue that you were responsible for the accident that injured you, or failed to do everything possible to avoid the accident.

That’s why it’s essential to investigate the cause of accidents that lead to spinal cord injuries. This process establishes liability on the part of the person or persons responsible for causing your injuries.

At Anderson Trial Lawyers, our attorneys work with safety experts, design engineers, medical experts, toxicologists, and accident reconstruction experts to build cases that expose the safety violations and negligence that led to your injury. We provide evidence that undermines claims from the expert witnesses of insurance companies, who will attempt to shift blame in order to avoid compensating an injured person.

Determining The Financial Impact Of A Spinal Cord Injury

Insurance companies may also try to question or minimize the costs associated with your spinal cord injury in an effort to pay less money in claims or settlements. If left unchallenged, your compensation can be much less than what you need to keep up with the medical expenses and other costs arising from your injury.

The team at Anderson Trial Lawyers prepares cost-data analysis reports to get you fair compensation. Working from medical cost data collected by HMOs and the insurance industry, we quantify the costs associated with your surgeries, physical therapy, nursing care, medical equipment, lost wages, and loss in quality of life.

Our office also consults with medical economists and life care planners who can verify and document the scope and nature of a client’s injuries. This thorough documentation stands as sound offense against testimony from insurance companies’ expert witnesses.

I could not have asked for an easier, stress free way to handle my legal business. I dealt with Mike mostly and it was a pleasure, but the staff was great too! Definitely a positive experience and a PROFESSIONAL I'm glad to have in my circle.

For thirty years, we have never faced a vendor-related contract failure... but it finally happened.We turned to the compassionate team at Anderson and Anderson, for our goal was a resolution that met the needs of clients and agency but didn't turn into something nasty or not reflective of our corporate culture.Chris and his team at Anderson and Anderson were professional, calm and supportive. Through a strong and guiding presence, they helped us successfully negotiate a settlement with a vendor that failed to deliver as promised.While it was a challenge to experience this process, Chris translated the legal-ease and clearly protected our best interests and that of our client. We could not have been more pleased or grateful for his guidance and support.I can clearly envision how he would protect those injured and in need of a skilled advocate. We had to go to court, and other clients may have to do so, as well. Ultimately it really matters who you choose to be your representative: someone who says "they will fight for you," or someone who has a proven record of walking into a courtroom to fight on your behalf.
