Adjusting to spinal cord injuries is a long-term endeavor

The spinal cord is essential for every human being because it carries vital signals to and from the brain to all other parts of the body. Accordingly, when a person suffers a spinal cord injury, it can have a devastating impact on their daily life. As this blog noted in a prior post, motor vehicle accidents are a major cause of spinal cord injuries. But, regardless of how a spinal cord injury occurs, the victim and their family members will likely face difficulties coping with and adjusting to the effects of the injury.

James F. Humphreys & Associates is a law firm with a wealth of experience in helping people in West Virginia who suffer serious personal injuries like a spinal cord injury. When that injury is caused by someone else -- through an auto accident, a hazardous property condition, or any other kind of negligence -- the victims and their families can rely on our firm to aggressively pursue their legal options.

A spinal cord injury can leave a person with permanent disabilities including varying degrees of paralysis. When a person suffers this kind of injury at the hands of someone else, that person's insurance company or legal representative may propose a legal settlement for damages. Faced with daunting medical bills and other injury-related expenses, the victim may be tempted to take the offer. However, that isn't always the best course of action.

When something as serious as a spinal cord injury is involved, the victim may incur related expenses for the rest of their life. Thus, any legal compensation must account for the long-term nature of the injury.

Our law firm's website can be a preliminary resource for anyone who is weighing their legal options in the wake of a spinal cord injury. Likewise, our firm's attorneys can answer more in-depth questions about the particulars of a potential lawsuit.
