- In Depth Look
The attorneys at Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates were able to demonstrate that the client’s neck fusion combined with the trauma to his lower spinal cord caused his numbness and paralysis.
This case required key causal connection testimony from two neurosurgeons and several pain management specialists. Insurance companies will do whatever it takes to settle this kind of complex injury before trial.
Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates’ attorney and Partner, Michael D. Carter admits that this type of claim may not have been pursued a few years ago. “A trial lawyer is required to be familiar with the advances in neuroscience and medicine that can affect our clients. Recent advances in understanding pain and its causes allowed us to prosecute the case successfully.”
Carter has recently authored a paper on the effects that chronic pain has on the human brain.
This case required trial lawyers with extensive knowledge of construction practices, human anatomy, neuroscience and neuropathic pain characteristics. The Horwitz team assessed the complicated elements of the case in a practical manner and obtained an outstanding result.
Attorney Michael Carter acknowledges the importance of understanding advances in medicine in order to be a successful prosecutor on behalf of an injured client.
Defense attorneys for insurance companies will go to great lengths to avoid trial. In this case, they alleged that the accident our client experienced did not happen. They argued the type of work our client was performing could not have caused the pain he was experiencing. Then they claimed our client had not been working at the time of the incident, alleging that the only injury sustained was a minor back strain.
