Spinal Cord Injury Compensation
We work with a variety of experts who have experience in permanent disability cases to determine our clients' long-term financial needs. Depending on where the spinal cord was severed or damaged, care requirements may range from needing a wheelchair or home modifications to round-the-clock nursing assistance.
With 25 years of experience, trial lawyer Wade Byrd has handled both personal injury and medical malpractice cases resulting in paraplegia, quadriplegia, loss of sensation and partial loss of function:
- A 38-year-old man entered the hospital for emergency care. Doctors were aware he had a rare spinal condition, but literally broke his neck attempting to intubate him. The sawing impact on his exposed spinal cord left him quadriplegic and requiring a ventilator to breathe. We settled the case for $15 million.
- We won damages for a young soldier who was left paraplegic from a diving accident. We demonstrated that the owners of a swimming facility were negligent by not posting any signs relating to water depth.
