Many of our clients have suffered spinal cord injuries resulting from avoidable accidents including:
- Car Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents

- Construction Accidents
- Ladder & Scaffolding Accidents
- Slip and Falls
Red Bank Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers Understand Spinal Cord Injuries
Seeking fair and full damages through a person injury claim requires more than just knowledge of New Jersey law. Our Red Bank spinal cord lawyers also understand the unique nature of spinal cord injuries. Unfortunately, even the most advanced modern medicine is still lacking in treatments for severe injuries to our central nervous system, particularly if those injuries involve the spinal cord.
Spinal cord injury sufferers have an increased risk of developing other conditions including urinary tract infections, deep vein thrombosis, muscle spasms, pressure ulcers, chronic pain, and difficulty breathing. These serious complications all may require additional medical care, rehabilitation, and potentially ongoing management and medication.
Mortality rates for those who have sustained spinal cord injuries can also be between two (2) to five (5) times higher than those unaffected. With high-quality medical care, these numbers can be lowered, but the impact on the life of the sufferer is undeniable.
Our Red Bank lawyers take the time to understand these factors because we know that your personal injury settlement or verdict will likely cover you and your family for the remainder of your life. These additional complications can be costly, damaging, and stressful. Lean on our deep understanding and experience to guide you through this complex legal process.
Recovering Compensation for a Spinal Cord Injury in Monmouth County
As we have discussed, spinal cord injuries are amongst the most serious forms of traumatic bodily injuries. If you or a loved one has been the victim of a spinal cord injury, personal injury claims may be a great way to recover financial compensation. In order for our Monmouth County attorneys to build a strong case, we will need to show the following:
- You were involved in an injurious accident
- That accident was the direct result of negligent or reckless actions taken by another party
- Your spinal cord and other injuries were a direct result of that injurious accident
- Your spinal cord and other injuries caused damages including but not limited to medical expenses, pain and suffering, incidental expenses, emotional stress, property damage, lost wages, disfigurement, loss of life’s pleasures, loss of consortium, etc.
As the victim of an injurious accident, it is a great idea to seek medical attention as soon as possible. This action is not only a vital step towards your physical recovery and wellbeing, but it also will provide you with an official diagnosis that can be used to prove the legitimacy of your injuries. The sooner you are able to receive this diagnosis, the stronger the tie between your spinal cord injury and the accident in question.
If our legal team is able to prove the above, it is likely you will receive financial compensation for your spinal cord injury. Seeking medical attention, not signing anything presented to you by an insurance company, and securing the services of an experienced personal injury law firm are all positive actions you can take in order to ensure your family’s financial future.
