Washington D.C. and Maryland Medical Malpractice Lawyers Upholding Legal Justice for Spinal Cord Injury Victims
Knowledgeable attorneys protecting the rights of malpractice victims in Washington D.C., Baltimore, and across Maryland
Spinal cord injuries are some of the most expensive and life-changing injuries one can sustain. Whether sustained in a car accident, as the result of a nasty fall, or by virtue of a medical mistake, these injuries can render an individual incapable of daily functioning and bankrupt a family through endless medical and physical therapy bills. Clearly, not all spinal cord injuries qualify as medical malpractice. There are, however, a number of instances in which an individual suffering a spinal cord injury or their family has a rightful claim to compensation under Maryland or Washington D.C. medical malpractice law.
To determine if the spinal injury you or a loved one has sustained qualifies you for compensation, contact a medical malpractice lawyer with extensive experience litigating spinal cord injuries. The legal team at Schochor, Federico and Staton has a successful history of representing injured individuals like you in Washington D.C., Baltimore, and throughout Maryland.
What is a spinal cord injury?
A spinal cord injury is any damage to the spinal cord that results in loss of motor control and sensation. This loss of control can be either full or partial. Due to the crucial role the spinal cord plays in the human body, victims of spinal cord injuries suffer lifetime health problems that include loss of mobility in the upper and/or lower half of their body, paralysis of the one or more limb, breathing problems, bladder and bowel problems and sexual dysfunction.
