A spinal cord injury is devastatingly sudden and permanent. A once-active individual becomes trapped in his or her own body and dependent on others. It changes life for the victim and the entire family. It creates serious financial hardships and profound emotional suffering.

The Gucciardo Law Firm offers both compassion and hope for families dealing with spinal cord injuries. We know that survivors of these injuries can move forward and improve their quality of life. However, that transition requires extensive medical therapy, special equipment, replacement of lost income and many other considerations. Some clients will require millions of dollars worth of medical treatment and assisted care over their lifetime, and we have obtained many verdicts and settlements that fully reflect those needs.


Spinal Injuries Caused By Negligent Drivers Or Unsafe Working Conditions

Our mission is to hold negligent parties and their insurance companies accountable for maximum compensation. Over his 30-plus years in practice, founding attorney Charles Gucciardo has persuaded juries to award substantial verdicts when the insurance companies would not come forth with appropriate settlements. Serving every borough of New York City and Long Island, we handle cases involving disabling back and neck injuries resulting from motor vehicle collisions and other accidents such as construction site falls.

We are familiar with the spectrum of spinal cord cases, from high cervical injuries resulting in quadriplegia to lower spinal cord injuries resulting in paraplegia or partial paralysis. Our team works closely with clients, family members, medical providers, life care planners, economists and other professionals to understand the needs and portray the impact on daily life. We seek comprehensive damages that cover:

  • Future medical care
  • Nursing care or assisted living
  • Physical therapy and psychological counseling
  • Lost earnings and vocational retraining
  • Medical equipment and home modifications
  • Customized vans and wheelchairs
  • Damages for pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium or lost enjoyment of life

“Cases that I handle typically involve catastrophic injuries. The key to success in these matters is a watchful eye on all aspects of prosecuting these cases. You have to, by definition, step up to the plate.” ∼ Charles Gucciardo
