Philadelphia Auto Accident Spinal Cord Injury Attorney

Car Crash Spinal Cord Damage Lawsuit Attorney Helps Clients Get Compensation for Spinal Cord Injuries Sustained in Motor Vehicle Accidents in Allegheny County, Philadelphia County, and Across Pennsylvania

Spinal cord injuries are among the most severe types of injuries a person can suffer in a motor vehicle accident. Depending on the severity of the spinal cord injury suffered, the car accident could have life-changing consequences for the victim. The spinal cord is perhaps best understood as the communication pathway for neural signals being sent back and forth between the brain (your central nervous system) and the rest of your body (your peripheral nervous system). When damage occurs to the spinal cord, it can affect your motor system, your sensations, and more. Significant damage to your spinal cord can even paralyze you. High-impact motor vehicle accidents can lead to spinal cord injuries that devastate the lives of the injured. If you have been hurt in a motor vehicle accident in Pennsylvania, contact an experienced Philadelphia auto accident spinal cord injury attorney at Baldwin Matzus, LLC today. Our Pittsburgh and Philadelphia injury attorneys have decades of experience litigating personal injury and medical malpractice claims, including those involving spinal cord injuries.

Spinal cord injuries (whether the injury is caused in the medical treatment context or in the motor vehicle accident context) are extremely serious. Of course, such claims can be difficult to litigate. Generally speaking, it’s not enough for the plaintiff to “win” the case and obtain compensation for their injuries — the compensation must be sufficient to cover the plaintiff’s actual losses, which tend to be significant.

Convincingly presenting evidence of spinal cord injury (and resultant damages) demands the combined expertise of medical professionals and experienced personal injury attorneys. Here at Baldwin Matzus, LLC, our firm has decades of experience litigating spinal cord injury cases. We also have medical experts on staff to ensure that the extent and nature of your injuries are fully understood before litigation proceeds.
