Survivors of the most severe injuries — including spinal cord injuries — will face difficult challenges adjusting to life with a permanent disability. At Hauer and Company, our lawyers are committed to helping spinal cord injury victims obtain the financial resources, therapeutic treatment and practical advice necessary to deal with current and ongoing problems. Contact us for a free consultation about the range of our services for victims of paralysis or quadriplegia following a spinal cord injury.
The Hauer and Company legal team works closely with accident victims. We will ensure we work with victims’ medical treatment providers to ensure that all injuries are properly diagnosed and treated, that appropriate rehabilitative services are available, and that adaptive technologies for in-home living assistance and mobility are available.
In some cases it may be necessary to obtain payment for treatment of peripheral injuries and medical conditions experienced during an extended stay in a rehabilitation hospital or at home. These range from bed sores and bladder infections to serious problems with neural pain, dysreflexia and the emotional problems that many people encounter during accommodation of paralysis.
It will be necessary to monitor the payment of ICBC benefits to make sure that the treatment and rehabilitation benefits available under Part 7 are not redirected toward reimbursing the Medical Service Plan for primary medical care.
At Hauer and Company, our client service is not just focused on a client’s immediate and apparent physical injuries. We make sure that the effects of the injury, such as chronic pain, reduced mobility and psychological impacts, are also identified and that corresponding strategies (e.g., pain management, mobility supports and counseling) are established as part of an overall treatment plan.
We will act for clients who suffered spinal cord injuries in car accidents, falls, accidents at work or medical negligence. For more information about the range of services we offer for victims of spinal cord injuries, contact Hauer and Co.
