In the aftermath of spinal cord injury, there are so many things to do. Among your challenges is the possibility of filing a lawsuit against those who may have contributed to causing your spinal cord injury.
When you, or someone you know, has sustained a spinal cord injury, at first the world seems to have turned upside down. There are so many things to do, decisions to make… all the while you are grappling with overwhelming emotions such as anger, fear, depression, and loss.
At this worst possible time, you are called upon to make an extremely important decision about something you know nothing about. Who will pay for the tremendous cost that go with a spinal cord injury, such as a wheelchair, housing personal assistance services, physical therapy and rehabilitation services etc. Some will be paid by health insurance or the State or Federal government but these will probably not be enough.
Among your decisions is the possibility of filing a lawsuit against those who may have contributed to causing your spinal cord injury. A lawsuit can provide compensation for medical bills, lost wages and future medical care that will be necessary for yourself or your loved one.
Do Not Delay in Hiring an Experienced Personal Injury Lawyer
You should not feel rushed when making your decision, however, you should be aware of certain advantages in retaining an attorney as soon as practically possible. Promptness will enable the attorney to gather information more easily. Otherwise, as time passes after your injury, witnesses may become harder to find, physical evidence may be lost or damaged, and memories may start to fade. Further the State of Illinois has its own statute of limitations establishing a certain deadline after which civil claims can no longer be filed.

It is also very important to gather all relevant records such as: all relevant medical records; the names of, and contact information for, your health care providers; records of any additional out-of-pocket expenses related to your injury; any police and accident reports, photographs or witness statements in your possession; any record of lost wages from your employer. This information will help your attorney build a strong case on your behalf.
No Fees Unless You Win
This law firm uses contingent fee arrangements for cases involving spinal cord injuries. What this fee arrangement means is that you are not required to pay any money up front. Our firm shares in the risks of recovery and agrees to be paid only if the client’s case is ultimately successful by virtue of a settlement or a judgment. Under this arrangement, the attorney receives a percentage of the final amount recovered or one-third of the final settlement or trial award.
You are always involved in the case and have continuing responsibilities. You should promptly inform our office of any new facts in your case and if your medical condition changes. Our Law Office will be as open and thorough as possible. You can reach Mr. Brennan by phone or email anytime if you have questions or concerns about your case.
