Spinal Cord Injuries
You Will Need Compensation to Cover the Medical Costs
The medical costs of a serious spinal cord injury can easily exceed $1 million over the life of the injury victim. Additional losses such as loss of income will increase the total cost. Even with health insurance, the costs are so great that most people cannot afford to pay the medical bills.
If you or a family member suffered a spinal cord injury due to the negligence of another party, you may be eligible for compensation for medical bills and related losses. At the Tindall Law Firm, LLC, we help injury victims in Connecticut recover the damages they need to pay for their medical care. As an experienced injury attorney, Tavis Tindall works with trusted doctors and other experts when building cases for compensation.

Neck Injuries, Back Injuries and Paralysis
Many neck and back injuries are the result of injuries to the spinal vertebrae, disks or nerves. Disk injuries, including herniation, ruptures and compression, may require neck and back surgery such as artificial disk replacement, diskectomy and laminectomy. These painful and risky surgeries typically require lengthy recovery periods and often leave the patient with a lifetime of pain.
Injuries to the nerves in the spinal cord are often even more serious and can result in the following conditions:
- Chronic pain
- Loss of sensation below the point of injury
In the most severe spinal cord injuries, cerebral hemorrhage, stroke, blood clots, organ failure and seizures can lead to wrongful death.
Spinal injuries may result in temporary or permanent disability. Some people need lifelong medical care from specialists as well as daily help from family or other caregivers. The medical expenses can include surgeries, long-term care, rehabilitation, pain management, psychological therapy, medical equipment and costs for modifications to homes and vehicles. We will work hard to recover the compensation you need to pay medical bills and compensate for lost income.
