Spinal Cord Injury Lawsuits

NY Personal Injury Lawyers at Alonso Krangle, LLP Help Victims of Spinal Cord Injuries Recover Damage Awards

Spinal Cord Injury Lawsuits

At the leading law firm of Alonso Krangle, LLP, our New York injury lawyers are investigating potential lawsuits on behalf of spinal cord injury victims.

Spinal cord injuries often result in long-term damage and disability. Victims of spinal cord injuries can face a lifetime of challenges, some of which are impossible to overcome.

Each year, in the US alone, more than 11,000 people suffer a spinal cord injury that results in permanent and severe chronic pain, paralysis, or death. Spinal cord injuries can be life-changing, with most victims requiring extensive medical care and rehabilitation.

How Do Spinal Cord Injuries Occur?

Catastrophic spinal cord injuries are often the result of motor vehicle accidents or other accidents caused by negligence. When another party’s negligence, carelessness, or recklessness, causes a spinal cord injury, the victim may be entitled to collect damages. You might be able to file a spinal cord injury lawsuit and obtain compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, and more.

Our spinal cord injury lawyers at Alonso Krangle, LLP, understand the difficult road accident victims and their families face. Many victims struggle to recover not just from physical injuries but financial and emotional ones as well.

If you or a loved one sustained a severe spinal cord injury in a negligent accident, your family deserves compensation from the person or parties responsible. Filing a spinal cord injury lawsuit could help you obtain the funds you need to pay for current and future medical needs, rehabilitation services, and even improvements to your home that will make your life easier.

Motor Vehicle Accidents Are the Leading Cause of Spinal Cord Injuries in New York

The most common causes of spinal cord injuries in the US are:

  • Motor Vehicle Accidents: Car accidents, truck accidents, and motorcycle accidents are the leading causes of spinal cord injuries. Motor vehicle accidents are responsible for more than 40 percent of new spinal cord injuries each year.
  • Acts of Violence: Gunshots, knife wounds, and other violent encounters account for roughly 15 percent of the spinal cord injuries that occur each year.
  • Sports and Recreation Injuries: Impact sports such as football and recreational activities such as diving into shallow water cause about 8 percent of the spinal cord injuries reported every year.
  • Alcohol: Alcohol use is a factor in about 1 out of every 4 spinal cord injuries.

Types of Spinal Cord Injuries Victims Suffer

Your spinal cord is a vital nerve bundle that runs from the base of your brain down through your back—any serious damage to the spinal cord as the potential to cause loss of sensation or movement.

Spinal cord injuries often suffered by accident victims include:

  • Quadriplegia: paralysis of all four limbs.
  • Paraplegia: Paralysis of the lower half of the body.
  • Anterior Spinal Cord Syndrome: Compression of the anterior spinal artery (the artery that runs along the front of the spinal cord). Victims of this spinal cord injury may have some crude sensations, but movement and more detailed sensation are lost.
  • Central Cord Syndrome: Trauma to the large nerve fibers that carry information directly from the cerebral cortex to the spinal cord. This may result in paralysis and/or loss of fine control of movements in the arms and hands. Sensory loss below the spinal cord lesion and loss of bladder control are possible.
  • Brown-Sequard Syndrome: This is a neck or back injury, such as a puncture wound that occurs on one side of the spinal cord. Victims will lose some sensation and movement below the level of injury on the injured side. The body opposite the injury will lose pain and temperature sensation.
  • Spinal Shock: This occurs when there is a complete loss of motor and sensory function below the level of a spinal lesion. While the loss of full function is not permanent, spinal shock victims may experience some permanent incomplete spinal cord injury.

Our Lawyers Can Help Victims of Spinal Cord Injuries Obtain Maximum Damages

Spinal cord injuries often require extensive care that is unlike other injuries. Injuries from damage to the spinal cord, whether permanent, temporary, partial, or total, requires victims and their families to make changes.

  • Loss of control over movement can require full or part-time home care to aid with washing, dressing, eating, and going to the bathroom.
  • Medical equipment might be necessary to help the victim breathe, get nutrition, or eliminate waste.
  • You might need to adapt various aspects of your house to accommodate the use of a wheelchair.
  • The victim of a spinal cord injury will likely require physical therapy
  • You might need a new vehicle that enables you to transport the victim to and from doctor’s appointments. You might need a new vehicle that can assist the victim in driving independently.
  • Can the victim work? Many victims of spinal cord injuries have limited ability, at least for some time, to perform work. What does it mean when the injured victim is the breadwinner in the family? Medical bills, household expenses, and the costs of care can pile up quickly.

At Alonso Krangle, LLP, our spinal cord injury lawyers know that you need money after someone suffers such a serious accident. We understand how quickly the cost of caring for an injured loved one can become overwhelming. Insurance companies understand this too. Don’t let them pressure you into accepting less than you deserve for your spinal cord injury.

Thank you very much Mr. Andres for having won my case
I am very grateful for your excellent work, everything was professional. Thank you for giving me tranquility and for having so much patience with me and for the success and for the sweetness of Leslie. Once again, thank you very much Mr. Andres for having won my case.
We were very fortunate to meet David Krangle
My husband and myself had been involved in a multiple vehicle accident 5 years ago. At that time we were given the name of Mr. David Krangle, attorney. It took close to 5 years of very diligent work for Mr Krangle to complete our case to everyone’s satisfaction. During those years of endless hours and hours of work that he put into our case yet whenever we reached out to Dave (as the years allowed us to call him) he was always available to us. His patience did seem endless. His professionalism in researching everything to make our turnout perfect for us was everything we expected and let us rest knowing things are following the right path. I know we were treated with the utmost respect from various insurance companies and other attorney’s because that was something Mr Krangle made sure of. In difficult times it can be intimidating to work with a professional but we were very fortunate to meet David Krangle who had the ability to share warmth and compassion with us during a trying time. Those are traits that we admired in David Krangle and are delighted to have worked with him.
Highly recommend
Very professional law firm. Highly recommend.

Absolutely Instrumental in Helping Me Expose Medicare Fraud That My Former Employer Was Engaging In
When you have to fight Goliath you better call David. Dave was absolutely instrumental in helping me expose Medicare fraud that my former employer (one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world) was engaging in. Dave took the time to listen to my concerns and my evidence. He worked tirelessly to bring the best resources to table so that our case would be investigated thoroughly and prosecuted. In the end, the Goliath was defeated thanks to Dave!

Strongly Recommend Alonso Krangle As a Highly Experienced And Respected Firm

I consulted a close friend and well respected lawyer in the mid-Atlantic region regarding my hip revision surgery due to a medical device recall. Without hesitation, he strongly recommended contacting Alonso Krangle LLP to discuss my case. In his view, Alonso Krangle possessed extensive knowledge and experience in the type of litigation my case required, as well the respect of those throughout the judicial field for their professionalism. Equally as important, their personal focus on each individual’s case gives the client a feeling they are their only concern. My friend’s assessment could not have been more accurate.

Although in New York, Alonso Krangle could not have been more responsive or accommodating if they were located here in Virginia. I cannot recall a single time when my wife or I called their office and did not speak to either Andres Alonso or David Krangle. They were always completely available and ready to answer any and all of our questions. Their advice and recommendations were always honest, sincere, and accurate enabling us to plan accordingly. Legal proceedings can be a long process, but we never felt left out or forgotten thanks to timely updates initiated by Alonso Krangle. In the end, everything turned out as Alonso Krangle estimated from the beginning. I could not have expected better personal attention or concern from a family member handling my case. As with my friend, I too, would not hesitate to strongly recommend Alonso Krangle as a highly experienced and respected firm that will treat you like family.
