Representing Victims Of Paraplegia, Quadriplegia And Other Spinal Cord Injuries
Trauma to the spinal column can cause significant damage to the spinal cord, the vertebrae, the spinal disks, or the muscles and ligaments of the back and neck. The aftermath can range from disabling pain to surgical intervention to permanent paralysis.
The Law Offices of Michael R. Kaiser provides effective representation for the aftermath of spinal injuries. Our legal team represents victims of motor vehicle accidents and other injuries caused by the negligence of others. We protect clients from settling their cases for less than the full value, especially before the long-range impact is known.
Our Palm Springs, California personal injury firm offers a free consultation, serving the Coachella Valley and clients throughout Riverside, San Bernardino and Imperial counties.
What Types Of Back Injuries Can We Assist You With?
It is important to seek medical treatment for any back injury. A sore or stiff neck could be much more serious, and attempting to resume normal activities could make the injury worse. We handle the spectrum of serious back, neck and spinal cord injuries, from temporary but disabling pain to permanent harm:
- Spinal cord injury (quadriplegia, paraplegia, partial paralysis)
- Fractured vertebrae
- Herniated disk
- Severe whiplash (neck strain)
- Severe back strain
A paralyzing accident causes economic hardships and profound psychological trauma. A disk injury or broken vertebra commonly requires surgery and rehab, which may or may not be successful. Torn ligaments in the neck or lower back can be slow to heal or permanently sideline the person from certain occupations. A pinched nerve that causes pain, weakness, numbness or tingling can make it impossible for the person to work or sleep.
Trial lawyer Michael Kaiser formerly worked in insurance defense. He knows the specific medical records and documentation that insurers require before they will sign off on compensation. We work with many experts, from neurosurgeons and physical therapists to vocational rehabilitation specialists and economists, to fully detail the damages. Our careful and proactive approach typically results in a favorable settlement, but we are always ready to go to trial if the insurers won’t see reason.
