If you find yourself grappling with the repercussions of a serious spinal cord injury, don’t face this journey alone. Our legal team is here to assist you in assessing the viability of your case, taking into consideration the severity and permanence of the injuries, the necessity for ongoing medical care, and the potential impact on your employment and overall quality of life.

Understanding the Depth of Compensation

When confronting the aftermath of a spinal cord injury, understanding potential compensation becomes paramount. Remember, you have only one chance to conclude your case, be it through settlement or trial. Therefore, meticulous evaluation by a combination of legal, medical, and vocational professionals is essential. Once a case concludes, there’s no revisiting for additional claims, which makes the work we do beforehand crucial.

At Van Wey, Metzler & Williams, our approach is exhaustive. We collaborate with treating physicians, discern the chain of events, and engage essential experts to comprehend the injury’s lifelong financial implications. Common experts aiding this assessment include:

  • Life Care Planners: Comprising medical professionals like doctors and nurses, these experts evaluate the victim’s pre and post-injury conditions. They determine lifelong needs such as accessibility modifications, medical treatments, physical and occupational therapies, and other pertinent requirements.
  • Vocational Experts: They delve into the ramifications of the injury on an individual’s employment prospects. Through thorough analysis and testing, they evaluate if the victim can continue their previous job or require retraining for alternative employment.
  • Economists: They play a pivotal role in quantifying the monetary repercussions, considering future medical expenses, lost wages, and potential earning capacity. For instance, if a person earning $30 per hour can only earn $10 post-injury, they’ve encountered a $20 hourly wage loss.

Tackling such a substantial lawsuit alone can be daunting. With diverse potential compensations based on the defendant (be it a manufacturer, physician, corporation, or insurance entity), the damages usually encompass:

  • Immediate and anticipated medical bills and related expenses, which might cover treatments, therapies, medications, and medical apparatus.
  • Wage losses and diminished earning potential over the long term.
  • Expenses linked with lasting injuries, including lifelong care.
  • Intangible damages like pain and suffering, loss of sensation and sexual function, emotional distress, and, in tragic circumstances, the emotional toll and financial implications of losing a loved one.

"I honestly don’t believe I could have gotten a better result with any other lawyers"

April of 2023, we finally reached a conclusion to the case and it was wildly successful by all accounts from those I know who live this profession in and out, every day. I can’t lie; "winning" my case didn’t make my loss less painful or my world bright and shiny. But having a team of attorneys that care and that explored every avenue of redress helped me feel like I was heard and valued and that my loss was unique and individual and worth pursuing. I honestly don’t believe I could have gotten a better result with any other lawyers. It’s not easy and it’s never simple to fight a system legally entrenched to quash due process in cases of potential culpability. The good news is, I didn’t have to. Luke and the folks at Van Wey, Metzler, Williams did the hard work and heavy lifting. I would recommend their representation without hesitation!
