Gulfport Spinal Cord Injury Attorney

An accident that severs or disrupts the spinal cord changes everything, instantly and forever. The injury has a cascading effect on the person's physical health, mental health and independence. The impact is felt not only by the individual but by every member of the family.

At Maggio Law Firm, PC, we make it our mission to illustrate what was lost and what will be needed. Our legal team has obtained notable recoveries in personal injury litigation, including cases of spinal cord injury. Based in Gulfport, we advocate for the injured and their families in Mississippi, Alabama and across the United States.

Comprehensive Compensation For Paralyzed Accident Victims

Attorney Stephen Maggio is committed to justice for those who have suffered a catastrophic personal injury because of the negligence of others. He has handled a wide range of cases from car, truck and motorcycle accidents to workers injured in maritime and industrial accidents. Our firm invests the time and resources to build a solid case for liability. Then we work with the client, the family and many professionals to make sure that monetary damages reflect the profound personal impact and the lifelong needs.

People adapt to a paralyzing injury. Life goes on, but it will never be the same and the quality of life may further deteriorate:

  • A spinal cord injury is not only permanent, but it typically leads to other health problems, from skin conditions and muscle atrophy to circulatory and respiratory problems.
  • The loss of independence cannot be overstated. The person may never again get out of bed or use the bathroom without assistance. They may never again be able to work or enjoy favorite activities.
  • The family suffers, too. Mom may have to leave the work force to care for a child who is paralyzed. Parents, spouses and siblings have to make sacrifices and alter their lives around the needs of the injured person.
  • The person may need nursing care, modifications to the home, a special van and numerous wheelchairs over a lifetime. The dollars add up.

We work with life-care planners and medical specialists to understand the limitations and care needs. We work with families to understand all the hardships — physical, financial, emotional and psychological — and to portray those to the insurance company or a jury.
