New York City Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers
Experienced Counsel & Caring Support for Accident Victims

Spinal cord injuries are among the most serious injuries that a person may experience. The spinal cord acts as an information superhighway in the body, sending commands and information to and from the brain so the body can function properly. It also initiates and coordinates a number of reflex acts. A spinal cord injury acts like an accident on this highway, stopping traffic and preventing the brain from communicating with the rest of the body.

Incidents like falls from heights, pedestrian accidents, motorcycle accidents, assaults, and slip and fall accidents can cause spinal cord injuries that forever change a victim’s life. These injuries are so serious that they often affect the victim’s family as well.

Our NYC spinal cord injury attorneys at Silbowitz, Garafola, Silbowitz, Schatz & Frederick, L.L.P. have extensive experience with serious injury cases of this kind. We can assess the true impact your spinal cord injury has had and will have on your life, and we can determine who should be responsible for compensating you for this. We cannot go back and prevent the injury, but we can work to create a better future for you and your family.

Call (800) 498-2782 today to arrange your free case evaluation with one of our lawyers. We’re here to listen and help you make the right choices about your case.

Seek Fair Compensation for Your Lifelong Care

Spinal cord injuries may cause partial or total paralysis, on a temporary or permanent basis. Very minor spinal cord damage may heal on its own, but if the nerves are severely damaged or completely severed, there may be little to no chance of recovery, even with the many advancements that have been made in modern medicine through the years.

Rebuilding your life after a spinal cord injury may seem impossible, but you could be entitled to a significant amount of financial compensation – for your lifelong care. This may cover:

  • Medical expenses
  • Ongoing therapy
  • In-home care
  • Assistive/adaptive devices
  • Modification to your home
  • Medication
  • Lost earnings
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium

Let’s seek justice and the complete monetary damages to which you are rightfully entitled. Call (800) 498-2782> or contact us online to put our New York City spinal cord injury lawyers on your side.
