Legal claims can ease financial pressures of spinal cord injury

Anyone in West Virginia who knows someone with a spinal cord injury can probably appreciate just how much the injury can affect the person's life. Just about everything that a person does, from using his or her arms and legs to breathing and eating, is at least partly controlled by the messages that the spinal cord delivers to the body from the brain. This is why a spinal cord injury can leave an otherwise active and healthy person unable to physically function as he or she did before the injury.

In the blink of an eye, something like a workplace accident or motor vehicle accident can transform a person's entire life. A spinal cord injury can mean that the accident victim can no longer walk and must use a wheelchair. But it can also mean that such victims are unable to do more personal things like feeding or bathing themselves.

At James F. Humphreys and Associates, we know that a spinal cord injury not only affects the injured person's ability to handle normal daily activities, but it can also take a hefty financial toll. Just the immediate medical care following an accident that results in a spinal cord injury can be tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. In addition to that expense, the person may need rehabilitation, long-term medical care and even personal assistance for the remainder of his or her life. All of this can add up to an outrageous sum of money.

The attorneys at our Charleston-based firm have experience with the legal claims of people who have suffered these kinds of serious personal injuries. Whether a negligent driver or some other party caused the injury, our law firm has helped injured victims recover as much compensation as possible from all parties who may have been responsible for the accident.

Our website has more information about personal injury lawsuits and how our attorneys handle these kinds of difficult cases. Dealing with the physical and mental effects of suffering a severe injury is difficult enough; injured victims should not also have to shoulder the immense financial strain that can go along with a spinal cord injury.
