Spinal Cord Injuries
Pittsburgh Spinal Cord Injury Attorneys
People seldom recover from spinal cord injuries. Whether the result of a car, truck or motorcycle accident or a construction site mishap, spinal cord and serious back injuries are life changing. When the accident injury was caused by the negligence or misconduct of another party, victims have the right to seek compensation and damages that can help the injured person cope with his or her changed circumstances.
The ongoing cost of a spinal cord injury
At the Pittsburgh Law Office of Melvin L. Vatz, our firm has many years of experience helping injured people and their families, including those who have suffered a spinal cord injury. Victims of such injuries will need ongoing lifetime care. Such care is expensive, requiring continuing physical therapy, physician visits, and special adaptive equipment. Individuals with paraplegia or quadriplegia usually require the assistance of an in-home helper to undertake the daily tasks of living, such as dressing and preparing meals.
Attorney Melvin Vatz understands that people who have experienced an injury to the spinal cord have extraordinary needs. We focus on obtaining compensation so that they can receive the needed care and assistance.

Thorough preparation of a spinal cord injury claim produces the best results
We are known for our thorough preparation of injury cases, whether those cases proceed to trial or are settled by the insurance company. We develop a detailed life plan, detailing the cost of the ongoing care required by the victim. We analyze the impact of having a spouse, son, or daughter with quadriplegia or paraplegia in the home. We work with vocational experts to determine the amount of income and contribution to the family economy could have been expected over the course of the injured person’s lifetime. We film the injured person as he or she tries to get through an ordinary day. This evidence is part of a strong claim for damages and compensation for the cost of lifetime care.
