Advocacy For Victims Of Brain And Spinal Cord Injuries
The human body is fragile – especially the parts that control our executive functioning and movement. Damage to either your brain or your spine will result in a painful and difficult healing process at best, and permanent disability or death at worst.
If you’ve suffered a brain or spinal injury due to a car accident, slip-and-fall, assault or any other incident caused by the negligence or intentional actions of another person, you need and deserve full compensation for your injuries. The Law Office of Michael E. Gatto PC is ready to help you every step of the way. Our attorney has been advocating for personal injury victims for more than 20 years and has a proven track record of success in more than 100 jury trials.
Effects Of Traumatic Brain Injuries
The public now understands the risk of traumatic brain injuries better than ever before. And those risks can be truly scary. Symptoms and consequences of traumatic brain injury can range from confusion, dizziness and headache to dramatic changes in memory, personality and cognitive abilities.
Brain injuries can mean a lifetime of medical bills as well as limitations on employment abilities. Depending on the severity of your brain injury, you may need to seek compensation for one or more of the following:
- Medical bills and ongoing medical care
- Lost wages from time spent away from work
- Reduced earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Permanent disability
Whether you or a family member suffered the traumatic brain injury, our firm will work tirelessly to calculate the total costs related to your injury and seek full compensation from the at-fault party.
Spinal Cord Injuries
Your spine is the crucial link between your brain and body. Injury to any part of it can result in chronic pain or numbness, reduced mobility or even paralysis. Spinal injuries often take a long time to heal – if they heal at all.
Spinal injury litigation may involve seeking any of the damages listed above. But in the event of reduced mobility or paralysis, you may also need to seek damages for the costs of adaptive technology and medical equipment/assistance, including:
- A wheelchair or electric mobility scooter
- An elevator or chair lift for your home
- An electronic adjustable bed
- Modifications to the driving controls on your personal vehicle
- The costs of hired transportation
- Hiring a home help aid
