Neck, Back, & Spinal Cord injuriesVehicle crashes and falls are the leading cause of neck, back and spinal cord injuries. Each year they damage the lives of some 282,000 Americans. Victims commonly report broken bones, pain, muscle spasms, inability to move, headaches, irritability and PTSD (Post-traumatic stress disorder). While most symptoms appear shortly after an accident, often they do not manifest until days or weeks later. Symptoms may appear, then lessen, then reappear. Victims of Neck, Back, and Spinal Cord Injuries often require treatment over an extended period of time. This is always costly. The Law Offices of Richard J. Baskin have handled hundreds of Neck, Back, and Spinal Cord Injury cases. We have obtained full compensation for medical bills, lost work time, and emotional distress. Call our offices and tell us your story.
Brain InjuriesTraumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a leading cause of death for people under the age of 45. Five million Americans suffer from TBI disability. The leading causes of TBI are automobile accidents, falls, and sports injuries. When such accidents occur, the brain is vulnerable to traumatic damage, even if the skull is not fractured. The damage can occur when the head hits a hard object, causing the cerebral cortex to become bruised. Damage can also occur in a whiplash type of injury where the brain collides against the inside of the skull, injuring the brain’s deep white matter, an injury often referred to as a coup countercoup injury. As these examples show, Traumatic Brain Injury can occur from a vehicle accident or fall, even if the incident does not appear to be a catastrophic injury. If you show signs of TBI – a concussion, loss of consciousness, loss of memory, dizziness, tinnitus, nausea, vomiting, frequent headaches, irritability, depression, or insomnia – consult a physician immediately. Then contact the Law Offices of Richard J. Baskin to address the consequences of this serious condition.
Wrongful DeathThe law will never be able to compensate you fully for the loss of a loved one. However, resolving a Wrongful Death case may ease the financial burdens placed on your family by the negligent actions of another. In a Wrongful Death case, the law allows for compensation for loss of love, companionship, comfort, care, assistance, protection, affection, moral support, guidance and training. In a Wrongful Death case, we may also seek compensation for funeral costs, lifetime lost wages, loss of benefits, and other financial hardships. The Law Offices of Richard J. Baskin has extensive experience in helping families obtain a just result. Tell us your story, and we will review your options with you.
