NYC Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers
Fighting for Justice on Your Behalf
A spinal cord injury is one of the most severe injuries you can sustain in an accident. These types of injuries are often permanent and can alter the course of your life and livelihood. Whether you’ve suffered a spinal cord in a motor vehicle crash, a slip and fall, construction site accident, or under any other circumstances, your life may never be the same. At The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP, we understand how traumatic a spinal cord injury can be for you and your family. Our skillful personal injury lawyers provide compassionate counsel and aggressive representation to help ensure you recover full and fair compensation for your spinal cord injury.
Pursuing the Monetary Recovery You Deserve
The spinal cord is a complex system of nerves, tissues and cells, that along with the brain, make up the central nervous system. Although it can typically withstand a significant amount of pressure, it is also particularly vulnerable. When the spinal cord is damaged, the signal between the body and the brain can be disrupted causing catastrophic injury. Some spinal cord injuries can result in paralysis, quadriplegia, and paraplegia. If your spinal cord injury was caused by the negligence of another, you may be eligible to recover significant compensation in a personal injury action.
At The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP, we represent clients who have suffered spinal cord injuries in a wide variety of accidents, including the following:

The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP has been helping accident victims who have suffered spinal cord injuries for more than 80 years. Providing the time and attention necessary to help ensure you achieve the results you need — and the compensation you deserve — we are adept negotiators and experienced litigators. Our personal injury lawyers are committed to securing the monetary recovery you are entitled to receive from the party who should be held liable for your injury.
Personalized Time and Attention in Every Case
When you’ve suffered a spinal cord injury, you might not only require medical treatment in the present, but you may also require extensive medical care in the future. For instance, you may require in-home assistance, surgery, medical equipment, or a wheelchair. In some cases, it might be necessary to make structural changes to your home. Our personal injury lawyers will diligently assess your case to make sure your medical and financial needs are accurately accounted for and factored into your personal injury claim.
When you file a personal injury action to hold the negligent party accountable for your spinal cord injury, you may be entitled to recover both the economic damages and non-economic damages you suffered in connection with your injuries. While economic damages cover your monetary losses — such as medical-related expenses and lost wages — non-economic damages are meant to compensate you for the pain and suffering you experienced due to your injury.
A spinal cord injury can significantly affect your quality of life. The non-economic loss portion of a personal injury claim for a spinal cord injury can compensate you for the mental anguish, physical pain, permanent disability, and loss of enjoyment of life suffered in connection with the accident. This category of damages is often the most substantial part of a personal injury award for a spinal cord injury. At The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP, we have an impressive track record of securing settlements and verdicts in the millions for spinal cord injuries including a record setting $36 million settlement for a construction worker who sustained a significant spinal cord injury when he was struck by a light stanchion at a worksite.
