Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer

If you or a family member has suffered a spinal cord injury in Louisiana, the Roach Law Firm stands ready to answer your questions about the legal aspects of your case. We offer free initial consultations to people who have suffered accidents resulting in a back injury, neck injury or spine injury. The sooner we are brought on board to represent you, the more likely it is that we will be able to help maximize compensation for you from a negligent driver, property owner or anyone whose negligence contributed to your accidental injury.

After a spinal cord injury, a lawyer's advice and assistance can be as important to your recovery process as a doctor's care. We can say this with confidence because of the positive results we have achieved for previous clients. When we have the opportunity to represent a paralyzed accident victim early on, we can:

  • Conduct a detailed, thorough investigation with greater chances of discovering the true causes of a car accident, slip-and-fall or shooting accident.
  • Advocate for our clients in their quest for the best available medical care, therapy and rehabilitation services.
  • Communicate with health care professionals, health care facilities and insurers to facilitate expeditious handling of medical bills and related expenses.

No compensation can bring back life as it was before a spinal injury, but skilled legal advocacy, along with quality medical care, therapy and practical assistance, can contribute a great deal to a strong recovery.

Moving home from a rehabilitation facility often requires accommodations, including:

  • A motorized wheelchair, which can cost many thousands of dollars.
  • A lift for quadriplegics, for daily transfers from bed to chair to bathroom and so on.
  • Personal care attendant services to perform daily hygiene tasks and help with dressing, feeding and more.
  • Home remodeling, in some cases, to widen doorways, install ramps and perhaps lower kitchen counters.
  • A modified van for transportation — and replacements every 10 years or so.

A spinal cord injury victim dealing with paraplegia, quadriplegia or less serious outcomes typically needs help from a whole team of caring support team members. The injured person often requires a wide range of services and equipment to cope with everyday challenges. He or she may need ongoing medical care to deal with complications such as neck pain, urinary tract infections and depression.

A successful personal injury claim or lawsuit aims at obtaining maximum available compensation to meet these critical needs after a spinal cord injury.
