Spinal cord injuries are easily among the most dangerous of all traumatic injuries. While the spine is vital to all of the body’s major systems, it is also extremely fragile. As a result, a fall, collision, or any other type of violent movement that impacts the spine can easily cause a life-changing injury.
If you have suffered a spinal cord injury in an accident, it is critical that you seek experienced legal representation. Most injury victims do not realize the full extent of their losses; and, when they choose not to hire an attorney, they almost invariably end up with far less compensation than they deserve (if any at all). This problem is magnified with the severity of a spinal cord injury. You will likely need medical treatment for years to come, and the pain and physical limitations may never go away. To make sure that you receive just compensation, you need someone who is willing to fight aggressively to protect your legal rights.
Experienced Attorneys for Spinal Cord Injury Victims in New Jersey
At Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Hasson, P.C., our attorneys are experienced in helping spinal cord injury victims win the compensation they deserve. Spinal cord injuries often require extensive medical treatment, specialized equipment, physical and occupational rehabilitation, and assistance with the tasks of daily living. The costs can run into the millions. When we take your case, we will work with top medical experts, life care planners, and economists to project the lifetime costs of your spinal cord injury so that we can pursue full compensation for your injury-related losses.
Types of Cases We Handle
With offices in Teaneck and Union City, we represent clients throughout New Jersey who have suffered all types of spinal cord injuries. We can help you seek compensation for your medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and other losses due to:
- Herniated and ruptured discs
- Spinal fractures
- Other spinal cord injuries
If you suffered your back injury on the job, you may be entitled to seek a financial recovery from multiple sources. The first is workers’ compensation. In New Jersey, workers’ compensation provides “no-fault” benefits to employees who get hurt on the job – with only limited exceptions. However, employers and their insurance companies often vigorously dispute injured workers’ claims, especially for serious conditions such as spinal cord injuries. To make sure that you receive maximum benefits, you will need an experienced legal team on your side.
The second is what is known as a “third-party” claim. While you generally cannot sue your employer for a workplace injury, you can – and should – file a claim against any other party that is responsible for your losses. Injured workers will often have claims against parties such as contractors, subcontractors, vehicle drivers, and manufacturers of dangerous equipment or machinery.
Vehicle collisions are among the leading causes of spinal cord injuries. With the forces involved in an accident, even collisions that appear minor from the vehicle damage involved can easily result in life-altering injuries. Pedestrian and bike accidents often result in spinal cord injuries as well. At the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Hasson, P.C. we handle all types of claims involving car, motorcycle, truck, and public transit accidents in New Jersey.
Along with jobsite accidents and vehicle collisions, we frequently handle cases involving serious injuries suffered in a wide range of other types of accidents as well. Regardless of what happened, after suffering a spinal cord injury, it is important to speak with a lawyer as soon as possible. The law is complicated, and you should never assume that either (i) you do not have a claim, or (ii) you were somehow at fault for your own injury. We can advise you of your rights, and we can conduct a thorough investigation to make sure that you recover the compensation deserved.
