Delaware County Spinal Cord Injury Attorney

Table of Contents

    The brain may act as the human body’s control center — but without a healthy spinal cord, the brain and body cannot communicate effectively.  When the spinal cord is injured or damaged, virtually every aspect of anatomical function can be negatively impacted.  Spinal cord injury (SCI) can cause devastating physical effects across virtually every body system, and can even interfere with involuntary functions like blood pressure and temperature regulation.

    Debilitating as they are, the physical effects of a spinal cord injury are not the only consequences to the victims of SCI.  People who have been hurt by SCI frequently suffer from emotional injuries, and may endure depression, insomnia, or anxiety as they acclimate to their new condition.  To make matters worse, SCI victims who are coping with emotional and physical trauma are also forced to deal with massive medical expenses — all at a time when they cannot work.  Depending on the type and extent of treatments which are needed, the medical costs of SCI can hound injury victims for months or even years as they struggle to recover.

    While all serious injuries are physically and emotionally painful, such injuries can be particularly hard to bear when they were caused by somebody else.  If your SCI was forced upon you by the recklessness, incompetence, or negligence of an outside party, you may be able to file a lawsuit to help recover your losses.  The Reiff Law Firm can help.

    Is Someone Liable for My Spinal Cord Injury?

    Spinal cord injury has many causes.  SCI can be traumatic (caused by an injury), or non-traumatic (caused by a health condition) — but in either case, an outside party may possibly be liable. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the leading causes of SCI are automotive accidents, falls, acts of violence, and sporting accidents.  If your SCI was caused by an auto accident where the other person was driving under the influence, driving while distracted, asleep at the wheel, or any number of other factors, he or she may be held liable for the resulting damages. If your SCI was caused by a fall, which was in turn caused by negligent property maintenance, the property owner may be considered liable.  For example, if you slipped on a wet surface or tripped over an unsecured cable, and your fall led to SCI, you may have a strong case for premises liability.

    Non-traumatic SCI can also involve matters of liability.  For example, if a doctor fails to note, diagnose, and treat an infection, and the unmanaged infection consequently leads to SCI, the doctor may be liable for medical malpractice because he or she failed to meet the industry’s reasonable standard of care.

    ...I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case.

    As a former client, I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case. I was in a very serious automobile accident with severe injuries to neck and back areas. I contacted the law firm and asked what to do with the medical bills and how do I get the correct representation against the individual who rear-ended my car. In short, the firm took complete control of the case contacting my insurance company and asking for all the medical bills and legal matters be sent directly to them. I was able to get treatment from my doctor without worrying about the legal stuff. Furthermore, two years later the case was settled for a substantial amount of money. My life was much better due to the firm handling of my case. My attorneys at Reiff Law Firm are absolutely the best and I have recommended to my family friends. Thanks Reiff Law Firm.

    I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city.

    Before meeting with Jeffrey Reiff and Bob Szostak from the Reiff law firm I’ve consulted with a few other injury attorneys in the Philadelphia region. Difference was, these guys know their stuff! I was absolutely blown away by how compassionate and welcome this law firm makes you feel. Once signed with them I never went a single week without staying in the loop with the progress and updates these guys have on your case. Working with them for some time turned what was an injury case, into a family! From calls and meetings, to just calling in to say “hi how’s everything going” I’ve never felt like a beat was skipped. I’d recommended the Reiff law firm 100%! I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city. The awards they’ve earned over the years speaks for itself! I can never thank the Reiff law firm and Bob Szostak enough for everything they’ve done, their professionalism, compassion and all of their knowledge and experience! Highly rated! Best in the city! I look forward continuing our relationship in the future. Thanks again My Reiff family!

    ...without them I would have been lost.

    I can’t say enough great things about the Attorneys at the Reiff Law Firm. They made me feel at ease when I was going through a very difficult time in my life. Never being in a situation like this I was so unsure of where to start and how to go about the process. Justin gave me options where I thought I had none and explained everything in a way that I could understand. Justin and the team helped me arrange all of the treatment and therapy that I needed, without them I would have been lost. My attorney John went to bat for me like no one else could have, his knowledge and professionalism is unmatched. If anyone is ever in need of a team of attorneys the Reiff Law Firm is my ONLY recommendation.

I am going to miss them now that my case is over. Attorney Reiff and Attorney Toczydlowski are excellent attorneys. They really care. They got me an INCREDIBLE RESULT. Most importantly they were there for me during some extremely dark and difficult times in my life. I highly recommend the Reiff Law Firm to anyone seeking the very best legal representation for injuries they suffered in an accident.
