York County, PA Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer

Table of Contents

    We always think of the brain as the body’s most important organ, but the brain and body alike rely on the spinal cord to communicate with one another.  The spinal cord plays a major role in regulating numerous voluntary and involuntary bodily functions, so when the spinal cord is damaged by external trauma or an untreated illness, the victim’s life can be dramatically changed — sometimes forever.

    Spinal cord injury, or SCI, is one of the most devastating events the human body can be subjected to. SCI frequently results in permanent disability, which subsequently leads to ongoing emotional pain and huge financial hardship alike.  Physical therapy and other treatments for SCI can continue for years, accumulating enormous medical costs all the while.  To make the situation worse, the person living with the injury will typically be unable to earn income because of their physical condition.

    It can be very easy to feel overwhelmed, but know that you don’t have to deal with the repercussions of your injury on your own.  The York County spinal cord injury lawyers of The Reiff Law Firm are here to help you.  Call us right now at (215) 709-6940 to arrange a free consultation.

    The Reiff Law Firm: York County Spinal Cord Injury Attorneys

    SCI can turn anyone’s life completely upside down, regardless of factors like age, gender, profession, or hobbies.  Sadly, many survivors of these terrible injuries are forced to live with paralysis, chronic pain, emotional distress, and a generally reduced quality of life.  It is completely unacceptable that you should have to suffer in silence with the consequences of another party’s actions: you are entitled to seek justice.

    While a lawsuit, unfortunately, cannot turn back the hands of time, it can result in a significant financial award to help cover your bills and ease your burdens.  In addition to monetary compensation, a claim can also yield invaluable peace of mind that the guilty party was held accountable for their wrongdoing against you.

    Is Someone Liable for My Injury?

    Traumatic SCI

    Traumatic SCI means that the injury was caused by an external force, such as falling or being struck by an object.  Depending on how you were hurt, liability could vary. For example, you may have had a slip and fall accident which resulted in injury to the spinal cord.  If your slip and fall was caused by a hazardous property, the property owner may be liable for negligent maintenance.  The CDC reports that roughly one-quarter of spinal cord injuries are caused by falls. 

    In another common example, SCI occurs as a result of a car crash.  Motorists may be liable if they were driving negligently, with some common examples being texting while driving and excessive speeding.  Other common causes include sports accidents, and acts of violence, such as assault.

    Non-Traumatic SCI

    Strikes, falls, and collisions are not always the culprit.  Sometimes, an internal condition can cause damage to the spinal cord, such as infection, inflammation, or circulatory problems.  If a doctor or other medical professional fails to make a diagnosis of an underlying issue, and that issue then leads to SCI, it could be a matter of medical malpractice. Surgical errors have also been known to have debilitating effects on their victims.

    If you or someone you love was hurt in an accident, you may be able to recover compensation. However, the state of Pennsylvania imposes strict limits on the time you have to file an injury claim, so you need to act fast.  Call the law offices of The Reiff Law Firm at (215) 709-6940, or contact us online to schedule a free case evaluation.  We won’t charge a fee unless we win, so call right away.

    ...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 was referred to the Reiff Law Firm by a friend who had previously been a client of the firm. My friend told me that the Reiff Firm had done an incredible job handling his case and treated him like family. My friend's recommendation was spot on. 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.
