Accidents are inevitable. Some accidents are minor while others can cause catastrophic injury. Certain accidents have life-long effects. One of the worst outcomes of an accident is sustaining a spinal cord injury. Your spinal cord sends signals between your brain the rest of your body. Made up of thousands of nerves, it plays a critical role in executing major functions such as controlling movement and organ function. When the spinal cord comes under physical stress or becomes injured, the ability to perform these functions can be restricted.

The spinal cord is protected by the vertebrae that make up the spinal cord. Any physical displacement of these vertebrae can put cause the spinal cord to suffer stress, become swollen or become severed. In severe spinal cord injuries, some individuals may never regain the use of their limbs. In the worst cases, a spinal cord injury can result in wrongful death.

If you have sustained a spinal cord injury at the fault of another individual or entity, you have the legal right to recoup financial compensation. It’s important to speak to an experienced personal injury lawyer in San Diego right away.

Michael Pines and his team have kept their promise.

Mr. Pines asked me whether I was in the same shape as before my accident – this I had to deny. My back was still hurting and he stated that, if I would accept his services, he would ensure that I would get the therapy I needed […] and that all bills would be paid and my health restored. Michael Pines and his team have kept this promise.

I cannot say enough good things about my experience

My friend recommended Michael Pines to me and I was super happy. They took very good care of me, treated me very nice, and I got a very nice check. I had a lot of back pain and the doctor they referred me to helped me so much! I didn’t have to pay anything when I was getting treatment. I was so happy, that I’ve referred another friend to Michael pines.

As soon as I met Mr. Pines my nerves immediately went away. He looked at my case and assured me that everything will be ok. I was sent to the best doctors who truly had my best interest in mind. All of the Attorneys and staff made my recovery stress free by not having to worry about paying for my treatment upfront.They were always there to answer my questions.

Michael worked non-stop, nothing deterred him

After falling on a cruise ship and being emergency evacuated to a hospital in Mexico, I was scared and needed help, especially because I am 89 years old. Michael worked non-stop, through the weekend, communicating internationally with stubborn insurance personnel who tried to put up roadblocks every step of the way.
