Head and Spinal Cord Injuries

Catastrophic Injury Lawyer serving Minnesota & Wisconsin

If you or someone you love has been involved in an accident resulting in a head or spinal cord injury, you might be entitled to compensation for your injuries as well as your pain and suffering. If you live in Minnesota or Wisconsin, the personal injury attorneys at Schroeder & Mandel, P.A. can help you fight for the compensation you deserve.

Head and spinal cord injuries often result in partial or full paralysis, so the recoveries are often based on loss of earning potential and how the injury will effect the rest of the victim's life. Each year, more than 10,000 new spinal cord injuries occur in the United States, several of which are caused by auto or motorcycle accidents.

It is extremely important to have an experienced head- and spinal-cord injury attorney advocating for you to ensure you are treated fairly by the insurance company. Although insurance companies are not looking to do wrong by their insureds, they are indeed a business that is looking to protect profit margins, just like any other company. The lawyers at Schroeder & Mandel, P.A. will evaluate the insurance company's offer and guarantee your settlement includes everything you need to focus on your recovery, including:

  • Payment of or reimbursement for hospital bills
  • Ongoing medical treatments 
  • Physical rehabilitation
  • Vocational rehabilitation (in cases where you will no longer be able to perform your former job duties)
  • Modifications to your home (if you are going to be in a wheelchair for an extended period of time)
  • Changes in transportation needs (for example, if you are unable to drive or your previous car is no longer viable due to your need to transport a wheelchair)

In addition to compensation you are entitled to because of changes in your life caused by the injury, you might also be eligible for additional compensation based on your lack of or diminished earning capacity after the injury.

As anyone who has been in an accident knows, there are several pieces to put in place after a traumatic injury. The law office of Schroeder & Mandel, P.A. focuses on taking care of the details so you can focus on your recovery. The firm offers a free consultation to anyone who has been injured, and you don't pay a dime in lawyer's fees until you receive recovery for your injury.
