SCI Legal Resource
In the wake of a spinal cord injury, life can seem overwhelming. There are so many things to do and learn, on top of adjusting to the major changes that accompany this serious injury. Moreover, the emotional strain and financial worries can be overwhelming. At this difficult time, you are also called upon to make many serious decisions including the possibility of taking legal action against those who may have caused or contributed to you or your loved one's spinal cord injury.
While this may not be at the forefront of your mind in the weeks or months following spinal cord injury, it is important to learn about your legal rights and options and how to protect and exercise your rights to seek compensation for your astronomical losses and suffering.

We have the compassion, competence, and experience to help you navigate the waters in this difficult storm. We can provide you with the SCI legal resources you need.
Recovering the Costs of SCI Care
While spinal cord injury lawsuits are complicated and time consuming, they can provide a sense of justice, and; perhaps, more importantly, provide you with the financial resources you need to care for yourself and your family. According to the United Spinal Association, first year costs of spinal cord injury treatment can range from $200,000 to over $700,000. For a 25 year old who suffers SCI, the lifetime costs of care and treatment can reach almost $3 million. While some resources and insurance may be available, most families cannot afford to shoulder these financial burdens on their own.
A SCI lawsuit can be beneficial in helping you obtain compensation, not only for your financial losses, but also in recognition of the emotional, physical, social and other non-material losses you and your loved ones have endured.
