Spinal Cord Injury

The Lawyers You Need & Deserve

Birth Injury
$12.0 Million
A mother was given excessive Pitocin during labor which caused brain damage to her newborn child. Shortly after filing the lawsuit, the hospital and doctor offered $12 million to settle the case.

Birth Injury
$10.0 Million
A routine ultrasound taken just prior to her due date showed that the twins were in fetal distress and emergency procedures needed to be undertaken.

The hospital and doctor settled the case for $10 million.

A young girl was injured in a collision when her mother had to swerve in order to avoid a Pace Van. The mother of an 18-month-old who sustained a lacerated liver after a medical-transportation van allegedly cut off the mother’s minivan and caused it to crash has settled her lawsuit for $7 million.

Chicago Spinal Cord Injury Attorneys

Spinal cord injuries can be some of the most life-changing types of injuries a person can suffer. A spinal cord injury can rob a person of his or her independence. This can be especially difficult if the injured person has children or other loved ones who depend on that person for care. It can also create a serious financial impact when the household depends on the income of the person who was injured.

There are many types of spinal cord injuries and each can have its own specific impact:

  • Quadriplegia
  • Paraplegia
  • Herniated disks
  • Annular tears

Many of these issues are immediate, but they can also be degenerative. An injury can begin a process where the condition of the spine worsens over time. These types of injuries can be deceptive. As the problem may only begin at some later point after an accident has occurred, people may fail to connect their pain and injury with the accident which caused them. Symptoms such as numbness and tingling can increase in severity over time.
