Spinal Cord Injuries

Winston-Salem Spinal Cord Injury Attorneys

North Carolina Paralysis Injury Lawyers

In cases involving severe back injuries including spinal cord damage, where the victim cannot reasonably expect to make a full recovery, insurance companies often seek to settle the case quickly for what appears to be enough money. Too often, that settlement offer will fall short of what is necessary to support and sustain the victim's adjustment to life with a permanent disability.

Contact an AV-rated* trial attorney at Comerford & Britt to learn how to avoid the risks of settling your construction accident or medical malpractice case for less than it's actually worth and what you'll need to live as comfortably as possible in the aftermath of a disabling accident. Because we accept a limited number of cases each year, you can benefit from our experience and our highly personalized and intensive client service in a spinal cord injury case.

Working closely with your treating physicians and rehabilitation specialists, we monitor your medical condition and prospects for recovery so that we can present the most accurate damages demand possible in light of your overall losses and your present and future needs. We also work with forensic medical and life care plan experts in order to refute any defense evidence that tends to minimize your damages, and to ensure that your claims for compensation are presented as clearly and persuasively as possible.

Our lawyers represent victims of motor vehicle accidents, botched surgical operations, and injuries suffered at construction sites in severe injury cases such as the following:

  • Fractures of the spine or neck
  • Extensive trauma or degeneration of disc tissue
  • Quadriplegia, paraplegia, or paralysis of any limb
  • Infections such as meningitis acquired in hospitals or nursing homes

At Comerford & Britt, we accept spinal cord and severe back injury cases on a contingent fee basis. In other words, we collect an attorney's fee only in the event that we settle your case or win at trial.
