Spinal cord injuries often cause permanent changes in the levels of strength and sensation below the site of the injury.

They can lead to debilitating nerve pain and paralysis, including paraplegia or quadriplegia. We understand that the devastating consequences of these injuries affect every aspect of an individual’s life, and an attorney must consider the full impact of the injury and account for complete life-care needs in order to achieve a legal outcome that provides for quality of life and a productive post-injury life.

To that end, we are involved with and the support The Chanda Plan Foundation, a non-profit foundation which helps people with spinal cord injuries access integrative therapies such as acupuncture, massage, chiropractic and adaptive yoga to improve blood flow, strength and sometimes sensation.

Our level of expertise in spinal cord and spine injuries sets us apart from other personal injury firms. The extra mile our attorneys go in order to understand each individual situation, our exhaustive case preparation process, and the fact we take the time to research and truly understand the anatomy and the medicine of each client’s injuries is just the beginning. We invite you to experience for yourself the Shapiro Winthers P.C. difference.

Neck, back, and other painful spine injuries are common after accidents involving automobiles, motorcycles, construction or work-related incidents, and slip and fall injuries.

Although these types of injuries can be extremely painful and debilitating, many insurance agencies try to downplay their severity in order to save money. Throughout our years of practicing personal injury law, the team at Shapiro Winthers P.C. has seen numerous insurers attempt to minimize the permanency and severity of neck and back injuries by referring to them as “soft tissue” injuries. The goal of utilizing this specific verbiage is to imply that your injuries are “not a big deal.”

Our firm knows and understands that your spinal injuries are serious and that these injuries have specific pain generators. We take the time to understand the medicine behind personal injuries, including disc herniation, radiculopathy, internal disc disruption, ligamentous laxity, instability, facet joint damage and other painful injuries that necessitate spinal fusion, injections or other treatments. It is important that you receive a complete diagnosis of your injuries and pain generators in order to fully assess the permanency of your condition.

There’s a reason why some people don’t trust personal injury lawyers. Although it’s unfortunate, some personal injury law firms that represent people with neck, back, and other spine or spinal cord injuries don’t have their clients’ best interests at heart. These firms, known as “mills” by insurance companies, are only interested in settling as many cases as they can as quickly as possible – regardless of a client’s ongoing medical and financial needs. Clients at mill firms often get shuffled around from one paralegal to another.

Shapiro Winthers P.C. is not a mill firm. We are selective with regards to the cases we accept so that we can offer the individual attention that our clients deserve. When we take on a case, we assess the most appropriate path to demonstrate the claim, often including full medical assessments using cutting-edge technology and field expert testimony, to fairly resolve your claim.

The Shapiro Winthers P.C. team has the knowledge, passion, and expertise required to help you in your hour of need. We are happy to offer a free case evaluation in order to discuss your injuries and evaluate your potential claims. Give us a call or submit an online request for an appointment today.
