Spinal Cord Injury Award Takeaways

With all of this information, it can be hard to tell what is important and what is not. However, there are some key takeaways from these facts and figures that you should hone in on. First, notice how so many spinal cord injuries take place in recreational or automobile circumstances. Second, note how Illinois plaintiffs receive awards over $1,000,000 at a far greater rate than plaintiffs with spinal cord injuries from other states-approximately 16% more! Third, and maybe surprisingly, see how there are more spinal cord injury recoveries over $1,000,000 from fall accidents than from sports or motor vehicle accidents. This shows us that, while not as frequent, spinal cord injuries from falls can lead to very lucrative jury awards or settlement amounts.

Client Reviews
Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case. In addition, Jonathan was understanding and patient pertaining to any of my questions or concerns. I was very happy with the end result and I highly recommend Jonathan Rosenfeld.
★★★★★
Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong, Google User
★★★★★
