Melbourne Spinal Cord Injury Attorneys
Are You Suffering from a Neck or Back Injury Caused by Negligence?
Spinal cord injuries change lives forever. People with a spinal cord injury are often paralyzed, unable to work, and often unable to care for themselves. At the law firm of Nance Cacciatore, our lawyers help people who have suffered a spinal cord injury because of negligence or misconduct obtain the resources they need to cope with their changed circumstances.
Our 150 years of collective legal experience, the extensive resources of our law firm, and our commitment to helping people who have been injured through no fault of their own, assist us in developing strong cases for our deserving clients.
To learn more about how one of our lawyers can help after a spinal cord injury, contact our law firm. After accepting a spinal cord injury case, we work with life care planners to determine the extent and type of long-term care the injured person will need to live as fully as possible.
With the planner, we communicate with the array of physicians and rehabilitation specialists involved in the patient’s care. The results of these conversations are added to the assessment of the life care planner and are incorporated into a detailed report, which is then given to an economic specialist. This person calculates the past and future economic needs of the injured person. All of this information becomes part of the lawsuit that we file on behalf our client. When the insurance company does not make an adequate settlement offer, our experienced lawyers are always prepared to proceed to trial, if necessary.
Many of our clients with spinal cord injuries have been injured in:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Construction site accidents
Whatever the cause of the accident, most people with spinal cord damage experience quadriplegia, paraplegia, or other forms of paralysis. Even when the damage is low on the spinal cord, victims often have severe back problems for the remainder of their lives.
