We have been fighting to achieve fair compensation for the victims of brain or spinal cord injuries for many years. Find out why so many people in the Central Florida area and throughout Florida turn to Allen & Abaray, P.A., if they've suffered a serious or disabling spinal cord injury or brain injury.

Telling Your Story So a Jury Understands

Few people have the medical knowledge to truly understand complex injuries like traumatic brain injuries or paralyzing spinal cord injuries. Our task is to communicate complex medical facts while helping to put those facts into the context of a life forever changed by an injury. We use the latest in presentation technology to bring your case to life for the jury.

Currently, almost half a million people in the United States are living with a spinal cord injury and some degree of paralysis. Every year, another 10,000 people suffer a spinal cord injury. 

  • Four out of five of those injury victims are males between the ages of 16 and 20. Nearly half of whom were hurt in motor vehicle accidents — car accidents, truck crashes, motorcycle accidents, ATV wrecks.
  • Slightly more than 20 percent of spinal cord injuries are due to falls from heights, such as can happen in recreational accidents, construction site accidents, and faulty construction accidents, such as staircase or deck collapses. Depending on the level of injury, the person may suffer paraplegia or quadriplegia.
  • Less dramatic, though no less serious, falls become more common after age 45 — slip-and-fall accidents, trip-and-fall accidents. These can cause herniated discs, which cause lasting, severe pain that limits the injured person's activities and diminishes quality of life.
  • About eight (8) percent of spinal cord injuries are the result of sports and recreational accidents, often diving accidents, which commonly result in quadriplegia because it injures the cervical vertebrae. 

In order to achieve maximum physical recovery, our clients will have many medical and rehabilitation needs. These can be tremendously costly, adding up to hundreds of thousands, even millions, of dollars over a lifetime.

  • The client will need therapy to relearn basic skills for independent living.

  • A child may require an educational assistant or extra educational services.

  • An adult may no longer be able to do the job he or she once held and job retraining may be needed.

  • Adaptations are usually needed for the home and workplace to accommodate equipment.
