Spinal cord injuries are some of the most severely debilitating injuries that can cause devastating consequences for victims and their family members. Spinal cord injuries are usually caused by a sudden impact to the spine that results in a dislocated or fractured vertebrae.

With over 15 years of experience, Paul Galm has had a number of successful spinal cord injury cases, and has been able to secure maximum restitution for his clients.

- After I’ve been taken to the hospital following my spinal cord injury, what steps should I take to begin my spinal cord injury lawsuit?
Call a Portland spinal cord injury attorney who can advise on the necessary steps to take after a personal injury accident. When you have a true spinal cord injury, damages tend to be greater. You need a knowledgeable attorney with resources to gather the facts for your case. At Galm Law, we can hire a private investigator to assess the scene of the accident and gather testimonials from witnesses to build a strong case against the bad actor.
If you are injured by a criminal act, it’s in your best interests to have a Beaverton spinal cord injury lawyer on your side. A personal injury attorney can work with the prosecutor who determines how the bad actor is charged and prosecuted.
- How are spinal cord injury cases different from other personal injury accident cases?
The steps to follow a spinal cord injury are the same as most other personal injury accident cases. The first priority will always be for the victim of the personal injury accident to seek medical treatment for injuries suffered. Victims of spinal cord injury typically suffer from:
- Physical disability
- Permanent disability
- Impaired ability to complete daily tasks
- Chronic pain
- Loss of bodily functions
- Inability to regulate blood pressure
- Reduced ability to control body temperature
- Increased chance of respiratory illness
Similar to personal injury cases, once the victim has seen a doctor and is medically stationary, a Beaverton personal injury attorney can begin to work with the insurance companies on the claim.
At Galm Law, we believe as a victim, your only priority should be getting better while we focus on settling or litigating your case.
- What kinds of spinal injury cases have you had in the past?
Most spinal cord injury cases come from vehicle accidents. However there are always outliers and exceptions. Spinal cord injuries can also be caused by:
- Bicycle accident
- Pedestrian accidents
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Slip & fall accidents
- Sports injuries
Don’t let a spinal cord injury change your life or the lives of your family members without adequate compensation for your troubles and your suffering. Majority of our clients at Galm Law are referrals which is a testament to our work. Once you are Paul’s client, you are a client for life.
