NEW TREATMENT FOR TBI AND SPINAL CORD INJURY ON THE HORIZON

May 3, 2018

Researchers at the University of Virginia have recently made a discovery that could lead the way to newer or better treatments for traumatic brain injury (TBI) or a spinal cord injury. They have detected a previously unknown immune response that takes place in the body after an injury to the nervous system. In response to injury, the immune system produces a molecule called interleukin 4, which protects nerve cells and encourages their regeneration. This new insight may pave the way for productive interventions that would mitigate or prevent long term effects of the injury.

Although this discovery may point to good news for those who have suffered a TBI or spinal cord injury in the future, individuals currently suffering from such injuries still have many pressing issues to contend with, including overwhelming medical and rehabilitation expenses, challenges associated with adjusting to life with a serious injury, and many personal and lifestyle alterations that have been forced upon them.

If you are an Arizona resident who has suffered aTBI or spinal cord injury for which another party is at fault, it’s in your best interest to consult with a Phoenix spinal cord lawyer. Attorneys at Wattel & York believe that you deserve the highest quality representation in such cases to make sure that you receive adequate compensation for your injuries.

CAUSES OF SPINAL CORD INJURIES

There are many ways in which someone could sustain a spinal cord injury as the result of someone else’s negligent or reckless behavior. Consider the following scenarios:

  • A car accident in which another driver’s alcohol consumption or speeding results in your injury.
  • An accident that takes place in an environment characterized by slip and fall hazards
  • An assault or other violent confrontation that results in injury.
  • Medical malpractice that results in spinal cord trauma

Perhaps you sustained your injury as the result of such a situation. Or, perhaps, other factors were involved. But if you believe that your condition would not have occurred had it not been for another’s actions or negligence, you may have a viable claim for damages. Wattel & York lawyers have helped thousands of clients recover jury verdicts and settlements to compensate for their injuries.

LEGAL COMPENSATION FOR SPINAL CORD INJURY OR TBI VICTIMS

When personal injury is the result of malpractice, negligence or hazardous conditions,victims may be entitled to compensation for the following losses:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation expenses
  • Lost income
  • Lost earning potential
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium

“Amazing people, they had my claim for about a week before they were able to get my truck totaled out. Otherwise I would have been stuck with a truck that had heavy front end damage if they hadn’t stepped in to help me. I tried to deal with my insurance company myself for over a month and that got me nowhere, all I got was a massive headache and a messed up truck. They are very professional and act quickly on your claim. I highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for help.”

“I was in an accident and decided to call Wattel and York. After months of going to a Chiropractor, I finally felt better. When it came time for settlement, the insurance company was making an offer I wanted to accept, Mr. Wattel advised against it and felt the insurance company was shortchanging me. He recommended I file a lawsuit and that will get them to cave. Well, Dave filed suit, and sure enough, the insurance company increased their offer by $4,000! I am very satisfied with how my case was handled.”

“Wattel & York were flat out outstanding with my personal injury case. They made the process painless and kept in constant communication throughout the entire time. Any questions I might’ve had were promptly answered and detail oriented. They gave me crucial advice that I would’ve otherwise not been aware of. I couldn’t have asked for more from them. Put your trust in these guys, you won’t be disappointed. Thanks Wattel & York.”

“Thank you so much for all your hard work on our behalf! Thinking I could handle it on my own, I was originally reluctant to take my accident claim to an attorney. But I am SO glad I called you instead. Your people were always helpful, pleasant and responsive at every step along the way. You represented us with honesty and integrity and made a traumatic experience as painless as it could be. And best of all, you helped us get a settlement that was fair and far more than I could ever have negotiated on my own! I highly recommend Wattel &York to anyone who has suffered a personal injury.”

“I was the passenger in a vehicle that was 'T- Boned' at an intersection in 2014. The issues of responsibility and recovery became a difficult and convoluted confusion. I really needed help. This Team at Wattel and York walked me patiently and encouragingly through difficult months, sorting through issues and finally arriving at a satisfactory conclusion. I especially want to name two great and encouraging "warriors" of Wattel and York who directed me along the way..Brian Torba and Melissa Patterson..to them and the whole team I say "Thank You" with heart felt gratitude. Sincerely, God Bless You.”

“Honesty. Integrity. Transparency. Partnership. Wattel & York brought all of these qualities and more to my accident case. I'd love to thank all of the team members who helped me with the process: David Guzman, who conducted the initial interview in my home, Aly Shomar-Esparza, who seamlessly guided me through paperwork and filings, Debbie Harrach, who conducted final review, paperwork revisions and scheduling, and Thomas Grisoni, who counseled me before and attended my deposition. I never felt alone during the arduous process and always knew there was a professional team looking out for my best interest. I highly recommend Wattel & York if you are unfortunately involved in an accident that was not your fault.”

“I was a passenger in a car that got t-boned a few years ago and got a huge gash. I didn't know a lot about lawyers, so I basically just picked one on the flip of a coin. I called Wattel and York and they explained everything, I went into the office and filled out paperwork. Got treatment on my gash over the time I worked with them, glad I did as it opened back up a couple times and bled. They did really good, got me the maximum amount of money, and made sure I was well taken care of. I was updated from time to time so that was good. The only thing I might change is I never got to thank or talk to my lawyer. I think it was because I was already used to dealing with the lady at their Glendale office so they just kept her as my point of contact. So it's okay, I'll thank them with a good review. The last thing I could say about them is months after I thought my case was over they called me and said they had another check for me for a few hundred dollars. Apparently, they negotiated with the hospital I went to after the accident. It was a nice surprise and shows they really had my interests in mind.”

Trent B.

“Wattel & York has been great for me in the past few years. I was involved in a really bad accident while I was on Active Duty in Yuma, Arizona and they have been patient with me every step of the way through a very long process. I would recommend them to anyone thank you for all your help.”

Levy G.

“Appreciate David taking the time to speak with me. He was most kind. From the front line with the receptionist, to him, the firm was a class act all the way around.”

Claire B.

“Dave Wattel represented me and my son on a Personal Injury case from a motor vehicle accident back in 2009. Jake P. handled my deposition and Dave did the Quarterbacking. The insurance company hired NFL referee Ed Hochuli's firm to try and deny our claim. But Wattel & York made it look as easy as Tom Brady on the football field. The result was more than acceptable and my son and I were compensated for our injuries and rehabilitation. Dave Wattel cares about his clients. If I ever find myself in a situation like this again, Wattel & York will be on speed dial!!”
