San Mateo Spine Injury Attorney
San Francisco Area Paralysis Lawyer
Spine injuries can result in all sorts of disabilities. The spinal cord runs from the brain down the interior of the spine, and can be thought of as an extension of the brain. Damage to the spinal cord affects parts of the body to which the nerves ultimately run. Thus, damage to the lower spine is less likely to affect the upper extremities than damage higher on the spine or neck.
A rear-end car accident is a common cause of spine injury, where sudden impact can cause a nerve injury or impingement. Whiplash is damage to the cervical spine when the head and neck are snapped like a whip. The extent of damage varies in spine injuries, and can be as severe as paraplegia or quadriplegia.
The Law Office of Reuben J. Donig can refer you to medical experts to diagnose your injury and we use experts to determine the cost of your current and future medical care. Most people seem to prefer a settlement with the responsible or negligent parties that caused their injuries. However, we put the client at the center of our practice and defer to your preference, settlement or trial.
Mr. Donig performs a thorough assessment of your injuries and how they will affect your daily life from now on. He is highly experienced in determining the "value" of a claim. This is important for you and your family to know. The firm is very skilled at preparing cases to obtain the compensation you need, and to go to trial if this is in your best interest.
