Spinal Cord Injuries

Legal and Practical Advice for Accident Survivors With Spinal Cord Injuries

Survivors of the most severe injuries — including spinal cord injuries — will face hard challenges adjusting to life with a permanent disability. At Murphy Battista LLP, our lawyers are committed to helping spinal cord injury victims obtain the financial resources, rehabilitative treatment and practical advice necessary to deal with current and continuing problems. Contact us for a free consultation about the range of our services for victims of paralysis or quadriplegia following a spinal cord injury.

The legal team at Murphy Battista works closely with accident victims and their medical treatment providers to ensure that all injuries are properly diagnosed and treated, that appropriate rehabilitative services are available, and that adaptive technologies for in-home living assistance and mobility are well suited to each client’s needs.

We also work to secure payment for treatment of peripheral injuries and medical conditions experienced during an extended stay in a rehab hospital or at home. These range from bed sores and bladder infections to serious problems with neuropathic pain, autonomic dysreflexia and the emotional problems that many people encounter during the adjustment to paralysis.

We monitor the payment of ICBC benefits to make sure that the treatment and rehabilitation benefits available under Part 7 are not diverted toward reimbursing the Medical Service Plan for primary medical care.

At Murphy Battista, our client service goes beyond focusing on a client’s immediate and apparent physical injuries. We make sure that the effects, such as chronic pain, reduced mobility and psychological impacts, are also acknowledged and that appropriate strategies (e.g., pain management, mobility supports and counseling) are put in place as part of an overall treatment plan. With nearly 30 years of experience in complex injury claims, our lawyers understand the importance of effective and early rehabilitation, and the need for long-term financial planning.
