A too-common consequence of any severe motor vehicle accident is trauma to the soft tissue of the neck or back. In the worst cases, trauma to the spinal cord itself will often result in paralysis and permanent disability. If you or someone in your family has suffered a severe neck, back or spinal cord injury anywhere in Louisiana, contact an experienced personal injury lawyer at the Charbonnet Law Firm in Metairie and New Orleans for a free consultation about your legal options.
Our broader goal is to make sure that you recover the full extent of the money damages you’re entitled to under the law. Especially in spinal cord injury cases, insurance claims adjusters will try to understate the compensation you’ll need to assure your future comfort and mobility to the greatest extent possible. We therefore document your damages claim to prove the full range of your current losses and future expenses for medical expenses, vocational rehabilitation, adaptive technology and in-home assistance. For clients who are paralyzed, these expenses will be projected over your expected life.
In our 45 years of practice, we have kept current with the evolving medical technology for the treatment of painful back and neck injuries such as herniated discs. In many cases, we can point you toward effective alternatives to doubtful treatment protocols and surgical techniques. Our first priority is to make sure that you’re getting the best medical treatment available for your specific injury.
