Paralysis is a truly life-altering injury, forever changing the lives of the victim and his or her family. The activities of daily life are made exceedingly more difficult. The costs of medical care, equipment and ongoing treatment are astronomical and can easily exceed a family’s financial abilities, even when insurance is paying many bills.
My name is Stephen I. Leshner, and I have represented seriously injured people in Phoenix and throughout Arizona since 1976. In that time, I have helped numerous people who were rendered paraplegic or quadriplegic because of a car accident, a surgical error or any number of other events. I have seen insurance companies offer people far less compensation than they deserve, and I am passionate about fighting to protect paralyzed people from being taken advantage of.
Appreciating the Cost of Care
When a spinal cord injury is so severe that it leads to paraplegia or quadriplegia, the obvious and immediately incurred cost is the surgery necessary to discover the extent of the damage and to try to prevent further harm. In the following weeks, months and years, a paralyzed person will incur other expenses as he or she tries to cope with a new reality. As a skilled Phoenix personal injury lawyer, I work to recover compensation for things like:
- Modifications to homes and vehicles to make them handicapped-accessible
- Attendant care
- Emotional distress
- Physical therapy
- Past and future lost wages
You can rely on me, as an attorney who has worked with many paralyzed clients in the Phoenix area, to provide you with strong representation along with a compassionate approach. I am happy to visit you in your home if you cannot come to my office, and I will make myself available to discuss your case on a regular basis.
