Spinal Injuries and Amputation
Spinal injuries and amputations are often a result of automobile accidents, work injuries, slip and falls, and other types of injuries, leaving victims of negligence with permanent disability and permanent ongoing medical treatment. Injuries can affect the cervical spine and neck area, mid-back, or lower lumbar areas. The residual effects can lead to a loss of motor control in arms and legs, severe pain, or even paraplegia.
As a result of spine injuries, damages in the form of lost wages and medical bills can be financially devastating. It is important that you speak with an attorney as soon as possible to protect your rights. Our office will help you obtain compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, future care needs, and pain and suffering.
Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can result in a multitude of long-lasting and even permanent problems, including memory loss, concentration difficulties, dizziness, and loss of vision. Medical bills can be financially devastating following a brain injury, as most treatment is very intensive and expensive. It is important that you properly evaluate brain injuries to determine what rehabilitation and treatment is necessary. If you have suffered a traumatic brain injury, contact our office to discuss how best to maximize your recovery against a negligent party.
Wrongful deaths can occur from automobile accidents, defective products, or medicines. If you have lost a loved one as a result of the negligence of another, Nebraska law allows the surviving spouse or next of kin the right to bring a wrongful death lawsuit against that party.
