If someone else’s negligence was the cause of your spinal cord injury in a car accident, you could be entitled to compensation. 

Damages Other Than Medical Expenses and Loss of Income 

In many spinal cord injuries, damages may be available that go beyond the initial medical expenses and loss of income. There may be long-term or lifetime consequences that also warrant compensation. 

For instance, home modifications, such as a wheelchair lift, may be recoverable. If ongoing physical therapy will be required, compensation for this may be available. 

Compensation can address a wide variety of needed medical treatments. For example, the victim of a spinal cord injury may suffer from emotional distress such as depression and/or anxiety. 

With a spinal cord injury, other complications may lead to additional compensation. For example, the victim may require breathing assistance. This may lead to the need for mechanical respirator. 

A spinal cord injury after a car accident can have devastating effects on a victim’s life. This is why it is best to seek legal counsel from an experienced attorney.

Working with Andrew and his team has been--without exception--one of the most pleasant, productive, and professional experiences of my adult life. I was seriously injured in an accident in July, 2018, in Virginia. I was driving a company vehicle that was registered in Maryland, for a company that was based in Wisconsin. And I live in New Jersey, where my personal vehicles are insured. The several jurisdictions involved presented a very unique case that demanded an experienced and nuanced strategy. I found Andrew Thomas (of Dulaney, Lauer, & Thomas) through some online research. And it is noteworthy that Andrew has worked the other side of the aisle--he used to work with insurance companies. Andrew took on my case with the assurance that he would work it with no less energy than he does each of his cases. At each turn, and with each question I had, Andrew and Paralegal Misty kept me informed, returned my calls, provided detailed explanations, and kept me feeling like I was in the loop and there was an eventual end to our journey. Nearly five years after the accident, we settled out of court for a significant sum in recognition of my personal injuries. The settlement was much more than I had expected. And without Andrew & Misty, I am sure the award would have been much less. If you are looking for professionalism, knowledge, dedication, answerability, responsiveness, integrity, and human-level communication from a personal injury attorney--look no further. You have found him. Thank you, Andrew and Misty. Gary Daley
