The spine not only supports the body, it is the central thoroughfare by which nerve impulses reach other organs and limbs. When the neck or back is injured, it can cause pain so intense that even the simplest activities become difficult or impossible to perform.
People who have suffered neck and back injuries in motor vehicle accidents and workplace accidents need quality medical care. But after an accident, how can you obtain that care? Will the insurance company or workers’ compensation system treat you fairly? How will you support yourself and your family while you are recovering? Are you truly a helpless victim at the mercy of forces beyond your control, or can you take charge of your life again?

Developing a Comprehensive Life-care Plan
In cases involving severe spinal cord injuries, we will retain the services of a life-care planner. This medical professional will interview the accident victim, his or her family and medical providers to develop a life-care plan. This document will spell out in detail all of the medical, rehabilitation and personal services the accident victim will need for the rest of his or her life. For example, it could specify the need for a van that accommodates a wheelchair or modifications to a home to provide the accident victim with greater mobility. The attorneys at Gold, Albanese, Barletti & Locascio L.L.C., will then seek the financial resources to pay for these needs as well as compensation for all other economic and noneconomic losses.
