How Serious Is Your Spinal Cord Injury?
The spinal cord is a powerful and vital pathway that acts as a conduit between our brain and our muscles and organs. It is also one of the most fragile systems in our body. Any damage to the grouping of nerve fibers can prove catastrophic. A spinal cord injury can cause:
- Loss of sensation
- Restriction of movement, including paralysis
- Loss of muscle strength
- Impaired ability to breathe
- Loss of bladder control
- Intense and chronic pain
At The Law Office of Bryan S. Hawkins, we understand the lifelong implications of a spinal cord injury. Our lawyers know how to build an effective and complete case to help you obtain maximum workers’ compensation benefits when you are injured in the course of your employment.
If you have suffered a spinal cord injury or any serious work-related injury, call our office in Augusta at 706-305-1130. We represent injured workers across the state.
What Does Workers’ Compensation Cover?
Georgia workers’ compensation law allows those who have suffered a spinal cord injury to recover compensation for a broad range of medical equipment and benefits. Insurance companies will not offer maximum compensation, despite their wide discretion to do so. This is why having an attorney who focuses only on workers’ compensation is so important.
At our law firm, we will help you obtain the maximum allowable compensation for:
- Surgical procedures
- Rehabilitative services
- Durable medical equipment
- Housing modifications such as a wheelchair ramp
- Transportation assistance
- In-home medical attendant care
- Lifetime indemnity benefits
