Spinal Cord Injuries

Wilmington Spinal Cord Injury Attorneys

Holding Negligent Parties Accountable for Back Injuries

At Daniel Pleasant Holoman LLP, we focus on the true best interests of our clients victimized by negligence. Spinal cord injuries are far too complicated to accept an immediate lump sum of money that ignores long-term needs.

A quick settlement in a spinal cord injury case ignores the complexity of the damage done to you or your family member. While the insurance company may make a compelling argument for a quick resolution in your "best interests," their offer represents a fraction of the true value of your case.

If you suffered paralysis or any other form of spinal injury as the result of someone else's actions, call us today at (866) 380-2281 or contact us online. We represent people throughout the Southeast in North Carolina, Kentucky, Georgia, and Tennessee.

How Much Compensation is Normal for a Spinal Injury?

Unlike with general personal injury claims, spinal cord injury claims often seek to obtain compensation for the victim that takes into account the needs that they will face throughout the rest of their life due to their injuries. For example, our attorneys may seek to obtain compensation for any of the following, depending on the seriousness of your case:

  • Compensation for medical treatment, both at the time of your injury, and if you require additional treatment at a later time in your life
  • Compensation for adaptive technology, if your injuries have rendered you bound to a wheelchair or unable to move about without assistance, we can attempt to recover financial compensation that will help get you the best wheelchair and other assistive devices you need
  • Compensation for lifelong care; if your injuries are so extensive that they require you to have continuous care for the rest of your life, we can help get you the compensation to afford the standard of care you need
  • Loss of consortium or loss of enjoyment; we can pursue compensation to help alleviate some of the emotional burden placed on your and your spouse or loved one following your accident

Depending on your case, you may be eligible to receive compensation for other damages as well.

Experience The Difference

  • We Are Not a Case Mill Firm

    We keep a low case volume so that we can dedicate the massive amount of time, energy, and resources that each case deserves.

  • Primary Focus on Serious Injury Cases

    We handle serious medical malpractice cases. Other law firms around the country refer us cases they are not equipped to take on or are afraid to handle.

  • Trained & Experienced Trial Lawyers

    Many lawyers who advertise for and take injury cases are either unwilling or afraid to take cases to trial if necessary to achieve a fair result, but we have extensive experience with actual medical malpractice and nursing home negligence jury trials. We prepare every single case as if we will go to trial.

  • A Focused, Creative, Collaborative Team Approach

    Our attorneys work together on virtually all of our cases in order to secure the best possible outcome. Three minds are always better than one.
