Not all spinal and brain injuries cause complete paralysis, but any spinal cord, disk or brain damage can cause severe and long-lasting injuries. At minimum, a back, neck or head injury can cause great discomfort or pain throughout each day. It could affect everyday movements, fine motor control, strength and/or dexterity. Severe injuries can cause paralysis, damaging nerves and immobilizing muscle groups.
At The Johnston Law Firm, LLC, we are sensitive to the unique situations of our clients with lifelong disability issues. If you or a loved one has been paralyzed as the result of an accident or medical negligence caused by the wrongful act of another, you need an experienced and thoughtful lawyer by your side. With the right legal assistance and guidance, people with paraplegia or quadriplegia can find viable options to possibly return to work, participate in physical activities and normalize their home life once again.
Our Portland, Oregon, law firm is here to help you obtain the maximum compensation you deserve, so you and your family can live comfortably with dignity. We pursue the medical help and resources you will need for the rest of your life, including compensation for:
- Previous and future medical expenses
- In-home care/family member care costs
- Living expenses
- Lost wages/future earnings
- Pain and suffering
Experienced Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer Pursuing Your Compensation
We bring the party or entity responsible for our client's injury to justice and hold them accountable for negligent or wrongful acts. If a defective product is found to be the cause of an accident our client was injured in, we can pursue compensation from the company who manufactured, distributed, sold or installed the product negligently.
Often, our clients are restricted to wheelchairs for the rest of their lives. Permanent injury is devastating, costly and stressful, and if you have been paralyzed, your entire way of living must change dramatically. You deserve compensation, and legal representation led by a results-oriented paraplegic and quadriplegic injury attorney can help you obtain your best possible result in recovery.
Attorney Marc A. Johnston can help you receive medical care from doctors and specialists at the pinnacle of their professions, along with support and accommodations for your specific injury. We work with clients who have been injured under a variety of circumstances, including:
- Car accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Semi-truck/18-wheeler accidents
- Construction and industrial accidents
- Falls from heights
- Falls from ladders or scaffolding
- Falls from roofs
- Slip- and trip-and-fall accidents
