If you have experienced a spinal cord injury and you think that it may be someone else’s fault, taking legal action is a smart idea. Filing a successful personal injury lawsuit can give you the resources for care and accommodations you need after paralysis. It can also help change dangerous conditions and prevent future injury to others.
At Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, L.L.C., we represent the victims of spinal cord injuries, helping them take effective legal action in courts throughout Connecticut. Located in New Haven, our team of experienced attorneys is dedicated to achieving the best possible results for our clients.
The effects of a spinal cord injury depend on the seriousness of the injury and where on the body it occurred. Spinal cord injuries result from damage to the neck and upper or lower back. While not all spinal cord injuries result in quadriplegia or paraplegia, most result in permanent disability. Victims experience loss of feeling and movement that can affect every part of their lives.
Our clients have sustained spinal cord injuries in many different types of accidents, including motor vehicle accidents, slip-and-fall accidents and accidents in the workplace. We understand that they affect each person differently, so we tailor or approach to meet your personal and legal goals.
It is a well-known fact that most personal injury lawsuits settle before trial. At Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, L.L.C., we prepare each personal injury case for trial — even if it is likely that the case will settle before reaching the courtroom.
By preparing for trial, we help our clients maximize the compensation they receive. Insurance companies and their defense attorneys know that we are serious, so they are more likely to offer our clients larger settlement amounts.
Of course, deciding whether to settle or go to trial is always your decision. We will counsel you about your options and guide you through the decision-making process, but we will never force you into one set course of action.
At Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, L.L.C., we handle all Spinal Cord Injuries cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that we do not get paid unless and until you receive a settlement or a jury award.
