Spinal Cord Injuries
Paralysis or Nerve Damage From Personal Injury Accidents
A spinal cord injury is life-changing. It ends careers and dreams. It frequently leads to financial hardships and health complications. It makes daily tasks difficult or impossible and it takes a heavy emotional toll on the victim and family.
Even those who adapt to the disability and hardships have many needs after a paralyzing accident. At the Tylka Law Firm, our League City spinal cord injury attorney works hard to hold the negligent parties fully accountable for the physical, financial and psychological effects. We help our clients regain a level of independence and financial compensation.
We handle spinal cord injury cases in the Houston and Galveston area and throughout Texas. If your loved one suffered a disabling neck or back injury, call our 24-hour hotline at 713-829-6048 to set up a free consultation with our experienced and compassionate attorney.
Spinal Cord Injury Accidents
We have more than 25 years of experience handling spinal injuries resulting from all types of motor vehicle accidents, including bicyclists or pedestrians hit by cars, and from workplace accidents such as scaffolding accidents, plant and refinery explosions, and injuries to seamen and longshoremen. Attorney Lawrence M. Tylka is skilled at proving negligence.
Our clients’ injuries have ranged from high cervical fractures resulting in complete quadriplegia to lower cord injuries resulting in paraplegia, partial paralysis, nerve compression or loss of sensation. Many victims suffer from breathing problems, inability to control their bowels and related health problems, and are at risk for bedsores, pneumonia and other complications.
Identifying the Comprehensive Needs
Our lawyers work with doctors, life care planners, economists and other professionals to calculate the long-term needs from a spine injury, which often include:
- Ongoing medical care
- Nursing home care or assisted care at home
- Physical therapy/occupational therapy
- Wheelchairs, lifts, customized vans and home modifications
- Psychiatric care and psychological counseling
- Vocational retraining
- Replacement of projected earnings
We understand the profound pain and suffering. Spinal cord injuries complicate every aspect of life, change family dynamics, and commonly lead to depression, divorce and other life-altering adversity.
When Justice Matters… We Will Be There for Our Clients
We know that money won’t solve or prevent every problem resulting from a spinal cord injury, but we seek to provide compensation, justice and financial security to provide the means to hire help and improve your or your family’s quality of life.
The Tylka Law Firm is available to help with your immediate and long-term concerns and guide you through the legal process to get compensation and justice. Contact us to arrange a free consultation, including off-site visits, with a Galveston County and Houston spinal cord injury attorney.
