Spinal Cord Injuries

Many jobs in Santa Ana, and the surrounding areas, are hard on a person’s back, especially if that job involves lifting objects and turning and bending. In many professions, there is a serious and real threat of spinal cord or back injuries, regardless of the precautions taken by the employer and the employee.


Sustaining a spinal cord injury while working in Santa Ana, or the surrounding area, means that you will need immediate medical care. You may require surgery, physical therapy, medications, construction on your home to make it accessible, an accessible automobile so you can remain independent, and may even become a quadriplegic or paraplegic depending on how severe your spinal cord injuries are.


If you live in Santa Ana, or in a surrounding area, Michael J. Holmes can help you get the medical care, financial assistance, transportation, housing, and home health care that you are legally entitled to.


Trying to represent yourself may mean you will get everything the insurance company wants to give you, but not everything you are legally entitled to received.


One such example is found with a current client of mine. He fell while working, and sustained a spinal cord injury. Initially, he was very happy with the fact that the insurance company was paying for his medical bills. For him, he felt he was just “lucky” to get what he could from them.


After I became his attorney, things changed quickly. He was no longer just receiving his medical care. He soon received housing for him and his family, a brand new modified vehicle, 24 hour nursing care, and the financial assistance that he was entitled to.


Common on the job spinal cord and back injuries can include:


  • Fall from a significant height
  • Fall from scaffolding or ladders
  • Deceleration/Acceleration injuries
  • Accidents involving machinery such as forklifts, tractors, cranes, etc.
  • On the job car or truck accidents
