A spinal cord injury (SCI) changes a person's life forever. These devastating injuries can happen at any time — crossing the street, at a pool, skiing, driving a car to mention but a few — and there is nothing a family can do to prepare for the new realities that accompany a catastrophic SCI.
At David Doig + Associates, we can help. We can help you regain the control of your life that was lost with a SCI.
For more than a quarter century, we have been representing SCI victims and their families — helping them obtain the resources they need to move forward. We are well known for providing personal, high quality work. We listen, we understand and we provide help tailored to the needs of each client and his or her family.
Spinal cord injuries have consequences ranging from chronic tingling and numbness to paralysis and the need for a ventilator to breathe. In cases of paraplegia or quadriplegia, injured individuals and families are confronted with the reality of overwhelming costs for medical care, adaptive equipment and other needs — often including some level of lifelong daily assistance. Even for relatively "minor" spinal injuries, it is critical that the potential for future problems be thoroughly assessed and understood.
In all spinal cord injury cases, the injured person has one chance with the legal system to get the compensation needed for a lifetime, making it critical to properly assess and demonstrate both immediate and long-term needs.
If you or a loved one has sustained a SCI, give David a call directly before you make any decisions to learn how we can help.
