Spinal Injury

New York Spinal Injury Lawyers

Helping Victims of Injuries to the Spine, Neck, & Skull

About 7,800 new spinal cord injuries occur each year in the United States. With an average initial acute care hospitalization of 15 days and another 44 days in a rehabilitation unit, these and other costs average $198,000 for the first year alone. Back injuries often cause full or partial paralysis and a lifetime of chronic pain. Each lawyer at Rubenstein & Rynecki has extensive experience and resources for fighting for maximum awards for victims living with spinal injury caused by the negligent or willful acts of others.

Causes of Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)

Motor vehicle accidents lead all causes of injuries to the spine, at 44%. Surprisingly, acts of violence now cause 24% of these injuries, with falls causing 22%. Slip and fall accidents commonly occur at the workplace, and often involve construction site workers. But even negligent property maintenance can cause SCI ― including slips on unmarked wet floors or icy walkways, tripping on loose carpeting, or falling down an unlit step.

Negligence is Often an Underlying Cause

Most workers can pursue back or brain injury compensation, regardless of fault, through workers’ compensation claims. But when injuries occur outside of the workplace, such as in car accidents or due to unsafe premises, proving negligence plays a major role in pursuing settlements or awards in personal injury claims.

Under NY comparative negligence law, accident victims whose own negligence contributed to their injuries can still seek compensation from other liable parties — but compensation is reduced by the degree to which the victim shares liability.

The attorneys at Rubenstein & Rynecki have over three decades of experience and a track record of success in helping victims seek the compensation they deserve after these life-changing events.
