National Reputation For Taking On A Variety Of Complex Personal Injury Claims

Montana Spinal Injury Attorneys

We Fight for Fair Compensation for Spine Injury Victims

A spinal cord injury can have a devastating impact on a person’s life. Any damage to the nerves in the spinal cord can affect mobility, feeling, and muscle control. Severe damage will lead to permanent paralysis, affecting part or all of the body depending on the location of the injury on the spine. A person with such an injury will require lifelong care.

The Montana spinal injury attorneys at Hoyt & Blewett PLLC represent people across the state whose lives have been dramatically altered due to the negligence and wrongdoing of a company or another person. Spinal cord injury claims are a key part of our practice, due to the profound influence they will have on every aspect of one’s life. We recognize the true cost of living with a spinal cord injury and pursue the financial compensation that will provide our clients with the highest quality of life.

We handle personal injury cases involving spinal cord injuries caused by:

  • Auto accidents
  • Falls from heights
  • Workplace accidents
  • Contact sports
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Defective products
  • Medical malpractice

Identifying the Cost of Living with Spinal Cord Injuries

The financial implications of a spinal cord injury are staggering to consider. The health care costs and living expenses alone, not including lost earnings or earning capacity, can quickly add up to hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars. Recovering a fair settlement or award after a spinal cord injury can directly influence quality of care, comfort, and a one’s overall well-being.

According to a study published by the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center in 2015, a lifetime of healthcare costs and living expenses for spinal cord injuries may equal:

  • Over $4.5 million for a 25-year-old patient with quadriplegia.
  • Over $2.5 million for 50-year-old patient with quadriplegia.
  • Over $2.3 million for a 25-year-old patient with paraplegia.
  • Over $1.5 million for a 50-year-old patient with paraplegia.

It is important to note that those figures do not include loss income or loss of potential earnings. They also do not include pain and suffering a spinal cord injury victim may experience.

Our Montana personal injury firm secured a $26 million settlement for a 21-year-old Academic All-American track star who was left brain damaged and paralyzed from the neck down after a rollover auto accident near Bozeman. This is the largest single-plaintiff settlement ever obtained in Montana to date. This settlement is meant to provide for our client’s lifelong care, including 24-hour nursing and the purchase of a handicapped-accessible home.
