Compensation For Spinal Cord Injuries
The causes of spinal cord injuries are widely varied and are frequently the result of another’s negligence. Whether they are from a car accident or workplace accident, spinal cord injuries change lives. From our offices in Lafayette, Louisiana, the Gaar Law Firm has helped numerous spinal cord injury victims and their families deal with the disabilities that require significant medical and financial resources.
Our Lafayette spinal cord injury attorneys have tremendous experience assisting people who have suffered from fractured spines. We gained $895,000 for one client who suffered cervical spine injuries while using a defective captain’s chair. Another client of ours received $1.015 million for his lumbar spine injuries sustained from an auto accident. Yet another one of our clients suffered neck and back injuries in a truck accident, and we were able to get him a $750,000 settlement.
