Los Angeles Spine Injuries

Spinal cord injuries are often devastating for victims. Unfortunately, spinal cord injuries are not uncommon in and around the Los Angeles area. Often, these injuries are caused by the careless or negligent actions of another person, business, or entity. At the Law Offices of Howard Kornberg, our team is here to help if you need a Los Angeles spinal cord injury attorney by your side. We understand that you and your loved ones are likely overwhelmed due to the injury and your recovery. Let our attorneys conduct a complete investigation into the case and help secure the compensation you are entitled to.

What Causes Spinal Cord Injuries in Los Angeles?

Spinal cord injuries occur in various ways throughout the Los Angeles area. There is not a dataset that specifically discusses the causes of these injuries in Los Angeles, but we can turn to the best orthopedic neurosurgeons and biomedical experts to gain an understanding of how these injuries are caused throughout the country. The following causes and percentages given here were taken from data gathered from 2015 to 2019:

  • Vehicle accidents (39.3%)
  • Falls (31.8%)
  • Violence (13.5%)
  • Sports and recreation incidents (8.0%)
  • Medical or surgical mistakes (4.3%)
  • Other causes (3.1%)

Spinal Cord Injuries Can Lead to A Lifetime Of Expenses

At the Law Offices of Howard Kornberg, we have a thorough understanding of the devastation that spinal cord injury victims and their families go through in these situations. When working to calculate the costs of a spinal cord injury, we have to look at both the short- and long-term expenses.

According to data from the NSCISC, we can see that the first year of medical care alone can cost anywhere from approximately $368,000 to more than $1.1 million. The data also shows that each subsequent year of medical care can add approximately $44,000 to $200,000 to the overall costs. These dollar amount ranges vary based on the severity of the spinal cord injury.

Additionally, we have to consider the costs that injury victims and their families incur that do not have to do with direct medical care. This can include the following:

  • The cost of modifying a home or vehicle to help with mobility
  • Travel costs to and from spinal cord injury specialists
  • Lost wages if a victim cannot work because of the spinal cord injury
  • Lost income of a family member that may have to become a caregiver

Finally, we have to consider the emotional and psychological toll that these injuries have on spinal cord injury victims and their family members. These injuries completely rearrange lives, and this can lead to significant and long-lasting emotional distress.

At the Law Offices of Howard Kornberg, your case will be handled by an experienced trial attorney who has won over 98% of all his jury trials and has resolved hundreds of millions of dollars in verdict and settlements.

We are able to take on all types of spinal cord injury cases, including those that involve:

  • Minimally invasive disc surgery
  • Cervical injury
  • Lumbar injury
  • Spinal fusion surgery
  • Prosthetic cervical disc implant/replacement
  • Prosthetic lumbar disc implant/replacement
  • Paralysis
  • Herniated disc
  • Bulging disc
  • Whiplash
  • Pinched nerves
  • Nerve damage
  • Quadriplegia and paraplegia

We understand that a spinal cord injury can affect your ability to manage your everyday activities. Whether you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident, trucking accident, slip and fall, dog attack, or any other type of accident, you can turn to us.
