Connecticut Attorneys Help Clients with Spinal Cord Injuries

Recovering damages in serious back injuries in Connecticut communities, including Norwalk and Stamford

Even a relatively minor back or neck spinal injury can physically prevent you from working for several weeks, which can have devastating financial consequences for your family. The financial strain can also add a tremendous amount of stress to an already difficult situation and make coping with your painful recovery process all the more challenging.

The attorneys at The Pickel Law Firm, LLC have more than 65 combined years of experience representing clients in catastrophic injury and spinal injury claims. Our lawyers have recovered six- and seven-figure damages for back and neck injuries that occur in automobile collisions, mass transit crashes, medical malpractice, animal attacks and playground accidents.

Damage to your spinal cord nerves, vertebrae or discs can result in disability

The vertebrae are bones that line your back and protect the delicate nerves of your spine. Spongy, resilient material called discs are lodged in between your vertebrae to cushion the bony structures and permit flexible movement of your back and neck. When a vertebra or disc is injured, the pain can be excruciating and the disability substantial. Some of these spinal injuries take weeks or months to heal, whereas many spinal cord injuries result in irreparable lifetime damage.

Effects of spinal cord injury on your life

The extent and nature of your disability depends on the location of your injury. The areas of your body below the damaged vertebra are likely to be affected; if your nerves are totally impinged or severed, you may experience complete loss of functionality and sensation. Partial damages may restrict your ability to move and perform everyday tasks. Our attorneys consult with medical experts to prove the impact your back injury has had on your life, particularly these typical symptoms:

  • Paralysis
  • Spasms and lost muscle control
  • Loss of sensation, tingling or numbness
  • Pain
  • Impeded organ functioning

Our managing partner, Alan Scott Pickel, is a former insurance company defense lawyer who provides comprehensive insight into how an insurance company is likely to defend itself. We take preemptive steps to counter these defense tactics and build your case for fair compensation.
