Representing People With Back and Spinal Cord Injuries in the Valley
Back and neck injuries can cause pain and suffering, be difficult to properly diagnose and require surgery. Therapy and rehabilitation is also a very long process. They can also be very difficult to prove. A spinal cord injury completely changes the life of the victim and their family forever. The injuries are painfully obvious — paraplegia or quadriplegia — and the medical and care needs last a lifetime.
The personal injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Eric Escamilla have represented clients with the full range of back, neck and spinal cord injuries. We understand the medical issues, and we have a network of experts in the Central Valley who can assess the extent of injuries, the appropriate care needs and the financial needs of the injured person. Call us at (559) 485-2535 or send us an email to learn how we can put our resources, passion and experience to work for you.
It is important to determine what caused the injury first.
In any personal injury case, the personal injury lawyer needs to determine how the injury was caused and who or what entity is liable for these injuries. The more significant the injury, the more important it is to establish all possible liabilities in order to obtain the necessary compensation. Our personal injury lawyers in Fresno-Clovis have extensive investigative experience as well as access to experts.
With a lower back injury, a neck injury, a herniated disk or fractured vertebrae, our personal injury law firm works with medical experts to understand the full extent of the injuries, how much medical care is needed and the costs of lost wages, pain and suffering and future medical needs that might be needed.
A spinal cord injury is life-changing and costly injury.
When one of our clients, George was crushed beneath a park ride, he suffered a spinal cord injury and brain injury. His case illustrates the types of expenses the family faces when their child becomes quadriplegic.
More than anything, his parents and brother wanted George to come home from the hospital. When George finally did, he required round-the-clock nursing care. Their home needed more space to accommodate nurses quarters and medical equipment. George’s family needed a van, ramps, a wheelchair and a sling for transporting George from bed to chair. George could not communicate in traditional ways, but his face would light up with joy whenever his family would come into the room.
Equipment, nurses, medical care and additional space are necessary in such cases, and our personal injury law firm does not back down in our demands that people like George and his family get all the help they need.
