Salt Lake City Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers

Fighting for Your Right to Compensation

A person who is paralyzed from an accident faces significant daily challenges and may be deprived of many of life’s joys. The lifelong costs of care can be astronomical. In addition, the injury takes a psychological toll on the victim’s entire family.

Insurance companies tend to view spinal cord cases in terms of subsistence medical care to keep the person alive. At Elegal Attorneys at Law, we see a person who will not only survive, but adapt and create a new future. We fight for the comprehensive damages to give our clients economic security and the same quality of life they had before the accident.

Our Salt Lake City spinal cord injury lawyers have a proven record of advocacy for victims of catastrophic personal injuries. We have secured settlements and jury verdicts for spinal cord injury victims from auto accidents, collisions with trucks, bicycle accidents, motorcycle crashes, skiing accidents and workplace accidents. Our goal is to always obtain maximum compensation for our clients to ensure the highest quality of life.

Compassionate Method of Care

Clients with quadriplegic injuries, and many with paraplegic injuries, will require some level of assisted care for the rest of their life, from 24-hour nursing care to help with chores and errands. Many spinal injury patients also need ongoing help from a physical therapist or home health aide to exercise their limbs to prevent muscle waste and bed sores and retain muscle tone and posture, which are all important to overall health.

These measures are simply survival-based. Our goal is to go beyond this and provide the resources to enable clients to live life as fully as possible. People with spinal cord injuries should be able to go back to school, have productive careers, raise families, and enjoy sports and leisure activities.

We have seen the full range of spinal cord injuries, including:

  • Complete quadriplegia (total paralysis) from high cervical injuries
  • Incomplete quadriplegia
  • Paraplegia
  • Loss of motor function
  • Ataxia
  • Loss of sensation

How We Can Help You

Family members cannot meet all a loved one’s needs, as they have their own jobs and lives. It takes many people — and thus hundreds of thousands of dollars — to provide medical care and daily assistance to a person living with quadriplegia or paraplegia. Add to that the lost earnings, the costs of wheelchairs, lifts, special vans, and home modifications, and you begin to understand the value of our experience. Elegal Attorneys at Law works with physicians and rehab specialists, life care planners and economists, vocational trainers, and many other professionals to determine the compensatory damages a spinal cord injury victim will need over a lifetime.

  • We hired Eric for a personal injury case for my son. We were very pleased and satisfied with the level of commitment Eric showed to us and especially our son. He was aggressive to get answers and made us feel as ease with such a hard time in our lives. We felt confident in his ability from the moment we meet him and he did not disappoint. We feel he was very fair.

  • I would recommend Eric Olson to anyone. He was very professional and strived to educate me in making the best decisions when I had no idea how to decide what to do. He is very knowledgeable about his particular field of law and used that in my best defense. I am very pleased with the job that he did for me.

  • I was in an auto accident three years ago. The first auto accident I have ever been in, but the other driver was ticketed. This lead to slow and obvious pain that grew worse. Doctors, surgery, shots, emotional trauma from not being able to physically do things I used to. That being said I want it known that Eric Olsen was so right for the lawyer to handle this case for me. I originally hired a ...
