An injury to your spine or spinal cord can change your life in an instant. If you are living with pain or numbness in your neck, back, arms or legs following a car crash or an accident at work, it’s important to get good legal and medical advice as soon as possible. You shouldn’t assume that the pain will go away or get better on its own.
At the law firm of Heimerl & Lammers, we have helped hundreds of people recover compensation for neck, back and spinal cord injuries caused in car accidents, diving accidents, sports injuries, slip and fall accidents, and accidents at work. Our lawyers offer a free initial consultation to answer your questions and explain your rights.
Many car accident victims go to a chiropractor for relief of back and neck pain. We don’t discourage you from seeing a chiropractor. However, you should also see a medical doctor who specializes in spinal care.
Neck and back pain can be caused by muscle injuries that get better in time. However, your pain may be caused by a bulging or herniated disk that if left untreated can cause permanent injuries. Spinal problems such as bulging or herniated disks can be detected on a MRI exam.
Unlike other parts of your body, your spinal cord does not heal following an injury. A damaged spinal cord can cause permanent paraplegia or quadriplegia.
If you are paralyzed in an accident, you will also need ongoing medical care, rehabilitation and therapy for the rest of your life. To live as full a life as possible, you will want access to the best medical technologies such as motorized wheel chairs and adaptive devices for your home and vehicle.
As your lawyers, we will consult financial planners, life-care planners and other experts to help us anticipate all of your future needs and help you get the best possible care.
Our attorneys work on a contingent basis. This means that we will not charge you a fee unless we win either at trial or through settlement.
The percentage we charge will depend on the difficulty of your case, and the amount of time and money we estimate it will take to get you the most recovery for your damages.
