3 Things to Understand About Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries are some of the most traumatic events most individuals and families will ever experience. Moving forward towards healing and recovery can feel like an almost impossible task. Each year, James H. Brown and Associates represents numerous individuals who have suffered tragic life-changing spinal cord injuries. Often, we work with victims and families overwhelmed by the challenges that lie ahead.

However, there’s always hope. Over the last three decades, we’ve had the pleasure of supporting individuals and families through litigation and their journey to recovery; with the right support at your side, SCI patients can attain justice, secure compensation for their injuries, and move forward leading happy, productive lives.

Below, you’ll find three important things spinal cord injury victims and their families should understand about the road to justice, as well as James H. Brown and Associates’ commitment to fighting for your rights from start to finish.

1. The Long and Winding Road

There’s no way to sugarcoat it: the road to closure after a spinal cord injury can be long and challenging from a physical, emotional, and legal perspective. In addition to the dramatic changes an SCI will inevitably cause in your daily life, litigation proceedings for spinal cord injuries can take a long time. No two injuries or cases are the same; while some injury cases can be resolved quickly, the severity and far-reaching impacts of spinal cord injuries often mean that it can take months (if not years) for legal proceedings to successfully conclude.

With that in mind, it’s critical that SCI patients and their families seek legal representation right away. The sooner you call an injury lawyer after suffering a serious injury, the sooner you can get started on the road to recovery. That’s why James H. Brown and Associates makes getting sound legal advice fast and convenient.

2. Justice is Attainable

After any catastrophic accident, your legal team’s goal will to be to recover sufficient compensation to receive proper care and allow you and your family to live a healthy, independent lifestyle. It’s not always easy, but no matter what lies ahead, justice and closure are always within reach.

3. Support is Always Within Reach

Spinal cord injuries take their toll physically, mentally, emotionally, and financially on accident victims and their families. Support is critical; assembling a team to support you throughout the legal process can help ease these burdens, allowing you to focus on the road to recovery. “When I was injured, there wasn’t much out there for support,” recalls James H. Brown. “Today, we are dedicated to giving seriously injured people the support they need.”
