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 Eisenberg, Cutt, Kendell & Olson 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
- Loss of motor function
- 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. Eisenberg, Cutt, Kendell & Olson 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.
