Legal Help For Spinal Cord Injury Victims
With its physical and functional connection to the brain, the spinal cord is one of the most important parts of the body. When serious injuries arise to the spinal cord, it can result in major, life-changing symptoms that are rarely improved over time. To further the challenges involved, legal claims involving spinal cord injuries can be complex and difficult to win. If you or a loved one has suffered a spinal cord injury, it is critical to work with a lawyer you can trust, one with experience handling this type of case.
Attorney Richard Watson has been representing clients in Durham and the surrounding North Carolina areas for nearly 45 years. He has the experience and knowledge to handle spinal cord injury claims stemming from truck wrecks and other motor vehicle accidents. He knows the law and procedures involved in these cases, and he can help you get the compensation you need.
Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries are among the most catastrophic types of injuries someone could suffer, with symptoms that can include:
- Severe back pain
- Paralysis that can include paraplegia and quadriplegia
- Loss of sensation in parts of the body
- Loss of control over bodily functions
- Loss of fertility or sexual functioning
Perhaps the most tragic aspect of these symptoms is that they are, in most cases, permanent. After a spinal cord injury, your life will never be the same. Attorney Richard Watson will fight for you.
A Recent Case
I just settled a case this year. It was a very sad case in which my client was struck by a driver who had run a red light. He was once a happy-go-lucky man, but the accident has changed his personality completely and he is unable to work. I fought for him and won a verdict of $3.5 million for my client and his family. This is the largest verdict ever awarded in that particular county.
Although a large verdict or settlement award will not undo the damage you have suffered, it can help you with lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering, and it can provide you with a modicum of justice.
