San Jose, CA Injury Lawyer for Spinal Cord Accident Victims

Paraplegia and Quadriplegia Injury Attorney Serving Monterey, Santa Clara, and San Benito Counties

Spinal injuries are usually catastrophic. Victims are frequently unable to work, walk, or perform many of the functions of daily life. They are likely to experience paralysis in different parts of their body, and their life expectancy is often shortened. They usually need expensive, life-long treatment. When a spinal injury is the result of an accident caused by negligence or misconduct, victims may be able to obtain compensation for their lost wages, lost earning capacity, pain and suffering, and medical expenses. If a spinal cord injury was the result of criminal behavior, such as drunk driving, the victim may be able to recover punitive damages.

When you or your family member has been left paralyzed after an accident caused by misconduct or negligence, you need to work with an attorney who has the necessary experience and skill to obtain full and fair compensation. At the San Jose, California Law Office of John J. Garvey III, we act for people who have suffered spinal injuries and paralysis. We have been helping seriously injured people for more than 45 years.

Regardless of the type of injury, we work hard to build a strong case for clients. We consult with medical specialists, economists, life care planners, and vocational rehabilitation specialists. In addition, we work with accident investigators and reconstructionists to gain a full understanding of the facts of the accident that caused the injury. Our experts assess the injuries, calculate the damages, and develop a plan to help the client live as fully as possible.
