Neck and spine injuries are not the easiest cases to litigate. Establishing and proving the full extent of the damages suffered by the victim, both physical and psychological, can be a difficult task. Our Pembroke Pines attorneys understand the financial toll taken over the course of a lifetime by this kind of injury, including a traumatic brain injury, which often accompanies a spine injury.
Brain, spine and neurological injuries are often the result of an accident caused by a negligent or careless person. These kinds of accidents include:
- Automobile accidents. The leading cause of severe spinal cord injuries in the United States is motor vehicle accidents. A car crash can throw your body around and twist it in ways that cause severe harm to your spine.
- Commercial trucking accidents. When a semitrailer crashes into your car, the impact can result in serious damage to your back and spine, including C5, C6 and C7 spinal cord injuries.
- Motorcycle accidents. Motorcycle riders often have to fight the stereotype that they are reckless and contributed or caused the accident in the Pembroke Pines area. Our injury attorneys know how to combat this stereotype with the insurance companies and get the full and fair compensation you deserve.
- Medical malpractice. Mistakes made by the medical profession can cost lives. If a doctor, hospital, nurse and other medical professional made a mistake that caused a serious injury or death in your family, you may have a claim for medical malpractice.
- Birth injuries. Harm to an infant is unbearable, but we are here to help. Birthing injuries can occur from Cesarean section surgeries, forceps injuries, vacuum extractions or the misuse of labor-inducing drugs.
- Defective products. Whether your injury is the result of a defect in design or manufacturing — or the failure to properly warn of dangers — we can assist with your products liability case.
- Workplace accidents. Accidents can occur anywhere, whether you work in an office or at a construction site. Sprains and strains are the most common injury in the workplace, but more serious injuries can occur.
