Paraplegia

For many years the attorneys at Alan H. Figman, PLLC have been helping paraplegia and quadriplegia sufferers seek justice from the courts, and financial compensation from those responsible for their conditions. We are sensitive to the many challenges paralysis sufferers are suddenly faced with and do everything we can to make this difficult time an easier one for our clients.

At Alan H. Figman, PLLC, you will receive help from experienced lawyers who know how insurance companies operate, the strategies they use to defeat claims and minimize losses, and how to make them pay.

The Work We Do. In seeking to obtain compensation and justice for the people we represent, we take a detailed look at the whole picture — beginning with what happened, what our client’s life was like before, how he or she has been affected by what happened, how family members and loved ones have been affected by it and every other relevant bit of information. Legal arguments aside, the real story of the case is found in these details, and making sure that story gets told is vital to obtaining the best financial recovery possible for each client.

Some of the specific types of damages you may be able to obtain compensation for include:

  • Past, present and future medical care needs, including prescription, rehabilitation and medical equipment replacement costs
  • Home remodeling costs
  • Wage losses (past and current)
  • Losses of expected future income or earning capacity
  • The loss of enjoyment in life (and other “non-economic” damages as well)
  • Pain and suffering compensation
