Back & Spinal Cord Injuries

Facing a Lifetime of Medical Care and Bills?

Injury to your back or spine, whether it's a herniated disk, fractured vertebrae or injury to the spinal cord itself, can leave you with feelings of frustration and helplessness. Symptoms can include pain, numbness, tingling (paresthesia), an inability to sit, stand or sleep in comfort, or the loss of use of one of your hands, legs or feet. Spinal cord injuries may even cause total paralysis (quadriplegia) or death.

If you or a loved one has suffered a serious back, spinal or spinal cord injury as a result of another party's negligence, the Cleveland back injury lawyers at Rubin Guttman & Associates, L.P.A., can help. We have recovered damages for people who have suffered serious back, spine and spinal cord injuries for more than three decades. Please contact one of our attorneys to learn how we may be able to help you.

The Effects of Back and Spinal Injuries

Serious back injuries may involve damage to the spinal vertebrae, disks and/or nerves. Disks that are ruptured, compressed or herniated can cause severe, persistent pain, loss of use of a limb or paralysis. People with these injuries may need prescription painkillers, muscle relaxants, physical therapy and surgery. These treatments are expensive, which is why consulting a back injury lawyer in Cleveland can be crucial. In severe cases, back injuries, especially to the spinal cord itself, may result in paralysis, quadriplegia or paraplegia. A victim of a serious back injury may need a lifetime of care and be unable to work for a period of time, or even for life. Your home may have to be refitted for your special needs. A special needs trust may be needed to provide for your future care.

The expenses associated with severe back and spinal cord injuries are great. In addition to medical bills and lost income, you may need compensation for a lifetime of care from specialists and home health aides. You may also need compensation for medical equipment and modifications to your home and vehicles. As experienced Cleveland back injury attorneys, we know how to assemble a life-care plan to prove your economic loss over your lifetime.

Client Reviews
Without question, the attorneys at Rubin Guttman & Associates, L.P.A. did an exemplary job in settling my claim with the manufacturer of the prescription medication that led to my bladder cancer.

I had occasion to use Rubin Guttman's services, in connection with obtaining coverage from a well-known life insurance company, that ended with a completely satisfactory outcome for me. I cannot rave enough about the professionalism and quality of the service which I received from Rubin. They were as good or better as any of the major law firms NITA whom I have had previous experience. Jerry Rothchild
