Brain & Spinal Cord Injuries

Experienced Trial Lawyer for the Seriously Injured

If you have suffered any type of brain or spinal cord injury in an accident caused by someone else, it is essential to contact a knowledgeable, trial-proven personal injury attorney.

A Lawyer and Legal Team Prepared to Go the Distance for You

We recognize that major effort and persistence may be required to get justice for you, as it was for a client who fell down granite stairs while leaving work. In this case, the woman who fell initially believed she had only bruises and scrapes, and although CAT scans and other procedures did not show brain damage, more serious consequences — including memory loss and serious emotional pain and suffering — became apparent over time.

We stayed with the case for several years, with Mr. Gorlick having frequent contact with the victim and her medical providers. Our client ultimately received a settlement through mediation worth a total of $1.15 million.
