Brain And Spinal Cord Injuries

At Gwilliam Ivary Chiosso Cavalli & Brewer, we have earned our positive reputation by taking only cases, that we strongly believe in, all the way to trial if necessary. To put it simple, we do whatever it takes to obtain the best result for our client.

Since establishing our law office in Oakland in 1978, we have successfully handled a significant number of serious injury cases across northern California, many of them involving brain or spinal cord injuries. As a result, our lawyers have come to understand how devastating these injuries can be.

We are well aware that many brain injury victims have difficulty accomplishing even the most elementary activities of daily living on their own. Spinal cord injury victims often struggle to afford the accommodations to their homes that would be so integral to improving their quality of life.

A Holistic Approach To Serious Injury Cases

Our attorneys take a holistic approach to representing clients. We work hard to see the whole picture — who our clients truly are and what they need — to get a better sense of how their injury has affected them. Once we do so, we are in a better position to fully convey these effects to a judge, jury or opposing counsel.

However, obtaining financial compensation is only one part of our job. We also believe that it is our responsibility to help clients in ways that go beyond their immediate legal needs. For that reason, we assign a professional legal team to each case. This ensures that someone who knows the client and his or her case is almost always available to respond to the client's needs and questions as they arise. This is true while the case is ongoing, and it is equally true afterward as well.

Developing A Life Care Plan

Developing a detailed and comprehensive life care plan is critical in any brain or spinal cord injury case. A life care plan is an in-depth, expert analysis of expected future medical costs and needs, including:

  • Procedures and rehabilitative therapy
  • Prescription drugs
  • Equipment
  • Replacement schedules
  • Home remodeling needs
  • Attendant care needs
  • Other medical considerations

We work closely with a variety of experts and consultants in this regard to help create the best possible plan to meet our clients' needs.
