Cincinnati Lawyers Who Protect People With Severe Spinal Injuries

A spinal cord injury (SCI) changes the life of the victim and the lives of the people who care about the victim. The spinal cord injury can cause paraplegia or quadriplegia, fundamentally changing the way the victim goes about day-to-day living.

The victim of a spinal cord injury needs good legal counsel.

At the Rittgers & Rittgers law firm, it is the job of our lawyers to investigate the accident that caused our client’s spinal cord injury, determine the liable parties and make the necessary personal injury claims. With offices in Lebanon, West Chester and downtown Cincinnati, we represent clients throughout southwestern Ohio.

An enormously important part of our job is to explain to the insurance companies and, if necessary, to the jury, how the victim’s life was changed by the accident.

A day-in-the-life video can tell the story of the disability through the daily activities of the injured person and the testimony of family, friends, co-workers, doctors, grief experts and psychologists.

Spinal cord injuries are caused by a wide range of accidents, including car accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, swimming pool accidents, amusement park accidents and others. Because of the enormous costs involved with spinal cord injury, we investigate these accidents thoroughly to determine all possible liable parties and their insurance companies.

Spinal Cord Injuries Require Lifelong Medical Treatment and Care.

The reason it is so important to have a personal injury attorney is the need to consider the lifelong costs of spinal cord injury. The medical costs are a part of the equation, but there are many other factors to consider. How has the injury changed employment opportunities? What equipment is needed — van, wheelchair, special bed, hoists, computer? There will be a need for personal care attendants and for changes to the home, including ramps and railings.

Our law firm works with medical experts, economists, rehabilitation therapists and others to determine the long-term costs of a spinal cord injury. Contact us by calling 513-932-2115 if you or a loved one has suffered a paralyzing back injury.
