Standing Up for Your Rights When You Have Been Paralyzed as the Result of an Accident
Catastrophic accidents can result in paralysis, changing your life forever. Paraplegia and quadriplegia will affect your ability to be able to function on a basic level, much less work to support yourself and your family. The level of ongoing care that a paralyzed person requires is much more intense and expensive than that of an able-bodied person. The tools and equipment required to function on a "normal" level are also much more expensive.
If you have been paralyzed as the result of an accident that was caused by another's negligence, you should not be left holding the bag for these very serious, very permanent changes that are taking hold in your life. Insurance companies will claim that they are looking out for you but in reality, they are protecting their own bottom lines. The initial settlement offer you receive will likely never cover all of the expenses and damages done to you because of this serious injury, much less the continuing maintenance of your life as you strive to return to some semblance of "normal."

We are well known for our two-pronged attack of a full investigation of your accident and going after all possible third parties that may be held accountable for your injuries.

The main goals we pursue are getting you the maximum possible settlement in order to provide you with the necessary equipment and continuing treatment for you to have a good quality of life. Money will never replace what you had before the accident, but it will at least help provide you with the tools you need to go forward and heal to the extent that you are able.
Our San Mateo paralysis attorneys will fight for the equipment you will need to get around, such as specialized wheelchairs and vans with lifts, so you can have some independence and therapies that may help your body not to degenerate further over time. We will also coordinate the compensation you receive against any benefits you are getting from federal and state agencies to maximize your resources.

One of our clients, a laborer, was run over by a dump truck. He had serious injuries to various body parts and now walks on crutches. The seven-figure recovery will account for his future medical needs, his care and his loss of earnings.
