Consequences Of Spinal Cord Injuries

At Hiepler & Hiepler, helping our injured clients is more than a job for our spinal cord injury attorneys; it is our cause. We represent clients across the entire state of California and beyond. Our spinal cord lawyers help our clients with every aspect of their spinal cord injury claims, from helping them obtain medical treatment and insurance coverage, to advocating for them in court and following up with the criminal case against the negligent parties to make sure justice is achieved.

What Effects Are You Experiencing?

The immediate effects of spinal cord injuries can range from subtle to extremely severe symptoms, including:

  • Loss of feeling
  • Loss of range of motion
  • Changes in sexual desire and behavior
  • Muscle spasms
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Quadriplegia
  • Paraplegia

An untimely death is also a possible outcome of a spinal injury.

Long-Term Effects Of Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injury accidents can cause a range of long-term effects that are, in some cases, not readily apparent upon the initial medical analysis. Especially in the more subtle injuries like slight loss of feeling or loss of range of motion, many accident victims seek help from chiropractors to mitigate the pain they feel, but never get a full medical analysis. In some cases, people do not even know they have a serious spinal cord injury because they have never seen a neurologist.

We cannot stress enough the importance of obtaining a comprehensive medical evaluation to determine the severity of your injuries and your long-term medical needs.

Total Compensation For Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries are not only debilitating and catastrophic, they are also extremely expensive. Many spinal cord injury sufferers seek compensation for the pain and suffering and the immediate medical costs involved, but this often falls far short of the total costs associated with these injuries over the long term.

At Hiepler & Hiepler, one of the most important services we emphasize is helping our clients get a full understanding of the total long-term costs that their injuries will create. This gives our clients knowledge about how to plan for the future, and it helps us establish the full damages in court, increasing the compensation our clients receive.
