Zealously Seeking Justice & the Fair Compensation You Are Owed

Even a seemingly minor accident can result in a spinal cord injury, nerve injuries, paralysis, and other life-changing injuries. The effects of catastrophic injuries, such as brain and spinal cord injuries, can forever alter your life. You have a right to pursue compensation for your losses—past, present and future—if someone else is responsible for your serious injuries. You need the help of our Waldorf spinal cord injury lawyers.

At Farmer & Klopfer, our MD spinal cord injury lawyers are committed to standing up for the seriously injured and their families. We understand the legal and financial problems people face after suffering catastrophic injuries, and we have won tens of millions of dollars for our clients. 

As your advocates, we will fight aggressively to get you all the money you are entitled to per Maryland personal injury laws and statutes.

Types of Spinal Cord Injuries

Our firm represents people who have suffered various spinal cord injuries, including:

  • Central nervous system injuries (CNS injury)
  • Concussions and contusions
  • Whiplash and neck injuries
  • Herniated, bulging, and injured discs
  • Compression fractures
  • Paralysis (quadriplegia or paraplegia)
  • C-Spine, L-Spine, T-Spine, and S-Spine injuries
  • And other severe spine injuries

Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries

Nearly all CNS and spinal cord injuries lead to major consequences for victims and their families. In addition to pain and suffering and many other personal challenges, the costs add up—from medical bills to lost wages. You should not have to worry about the legal and financial burdens associated with spinal cord injuries. You should be allowed to focus on your recovery. Let our Maryland spinal cord injury lawyers worry about the rest.

Remember: Never provide a recorded statement to an insurance adjuster without your attorney present. The insurance company is not on your side. It aims to minimize your personal injury claim.

Long-Term Costs of Spinal Injuries

Like many catastrophic injuries, spinal cord injuries often come with long-term treatments, therapy, and maintenance. All that medical treatment unfortunately is not free and insurance only covers so much. For most people, the out-of-pocket costs of serious injuries like this are very quickly overwhelming. In fact, medical debt is the number one reason people file bankruptcy in the United States.

This is why it is extremely important for anyone who is wrongly injured and suffering from a spinal cord injury works with a personal injury lawyer to recover the maximum amount of compensation that they deserve. While you focus on recovering, we focus on fighting for you.

You Don't Pay Unless We Win Your Case

If you or someone you love has suffered a traumatic injury, such as a spinal cord injury, our attorneys are prepared to offer you the legal support you need. We handle personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis, which means you won’t pay any attorneys’ fees unless we recover compensation for you. Incidental costs may apply.

Spinal Cord Injury FAQ

What is the spinal cord?

The spinal cord is a collection of nerves that run down the spine, from the base of the brain to the hips. It is responsible for the regulation of nervous reactions and musculoskeletal control throughout most of the body. Because it is comprised of sensitive nerve tissue, the spinal cord is dramatically slow to heal. Oftentimes, it cannot heal on its own from serious damage.

What is paralysis?

Paralysis is a medical condition characterized by the loss of control over parts of the body. It is caused by damage to the nerves within or that connect to that body part. Paralysis can be permanent, temporary, total, or partial.

What is paraplegia?

Paraplegia is a form of paralysis that affects all arms and legs. Oftentimes, it also affects the abdomen and torso. The result is that the paraplegic person can only move their head and face. Paraplegia can be permanent and incurable, making it the most devastating form of paralysis.

What recovery is expected following a spinal cord injury?

Not all spinal cord injuries are permanent. With modern medical technologies and rehabilitative methods, some patients can regain some or all of their mobility and bodily functions after suffering from partial or temporary paralysis. However, severe cases of paralysis and spinal are rarely expected to heal.

    James Farmer and his team exceeded all expectations! I had a very serious criminal case and his firm was recommended to me by a family member. I was incarcerated during this time and he and his associate Stephanie came to update me on multiple occasions on the progress of my case. They were not only professional but the amount of time and energy they put into my case showed me true dedication that goes far beyond a paycheck! They prepared for trial, but in the end was able to work out a plea deal that did not include any jail time. I couldn’t have asked for a better attorney. I highly recommend Mr. Farmer and his team for any criminal case!

  • “Kind, sympathetic, reassuring and more importantly, very knowledgeable”
    I couldn’t be happier with the service I received from this law firm. I felt comfortable from the minute I first walked through the door. I had less than two weeks before the expiration of my personal injury filing date and was overwhelmed. My first appointment was with Elizabeth who took my huge stack of papers with a smile and said, “Let me take care of this for you.” Although all of the staff that I encountered were wonderful, my main experience was with Mr. Farmer and Elizabeth who were both kind, sympathetic, reassuring and more importantly, very knowledgeable. My case was handled professionally and in a timely fashion. My case was recently concluded and I am very happy with the outcome and would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them to my friends and family in the future. Need a good law firm, no need to look further.
