Our experienced Back Injury Attorney
A sudden trauma such as an impact from a car accident or fall can result in a spinal cord injury, casing immediate adverse effects on mobility and nerve sensation. Some spinal cord injuries can develop over time, through disease, compression of bone fragments or hematoma. A spinal cord injury such as a cracked vertebrae or a herniated disk can cause intense pain, and if it is left untreated, can lead to more serious problems. Regardless of the cause of the injury, a spinal cord injury can have dramatic and life-changing effects on the victim and family.
My name is Ira Maurer, an attorney who represents people who have suffered spinal cord injuries as the result of motor vehicle accidents, falls and medical malpractice. I work hard to help my clients get full compensation for their losses, because I know the difference it can make in their lives.
The Maurer Law Firm, PLLC, represents numerous people who have suffered herniated discs and other non-paralytic spinal cord injuries. It is very important in such cases to obtain an accurate diagnosis. I have experience working with orthopedists and neurosurgeons to determine the extent of these injuries and possible medical treatments. These treatments include conservative treatment with physical therapy and steroid injections as well as invasive surgical procedures such as open decompression (lumbar laminectomy), microdecompression spine surgery, or spinal fusion surgery. My firm will work diligently to help you obtain the financial resources for needed medical treatment as well as compensation for financial losses, pain and suffering and other losses.
Paraplegia and Paralysis
My firm has extensive experience in cases involving irreversible spinal cord injuries such as paraplegia and paralysis. In these cases, I often work with a medical expert such as a life-care planner. This specialist can develop a personalized study that identifies all of the medical care, long-term care and other services the victim will need for the rest of his or her life. I will then seek compensation to pay for these services, as well as compensation for all other economic and noneconomic losses.
