Chicago Spinal Injury Lawyers
We Consider the Lifetime Effects of a Spinal Cord Injury
At Morici, Longo & Associates, our Chicago spinal injury attorneys help clients who have suffered serious spinal cord injuries at work, in motor vehicle accidents, or in other circumstances in which negligence led to a tragic outcome. Our clients include injured parties in Cook County, Lake County, DuPage County, Kane County, and the entire Chicagoland region.
We represent people suffering from:
- Spinal bruising or pinching resulting in radiating nerve pain
- Herniated discs resulting in numbness, sharp pains, or intense feelings of heat or cold
- Broken or crushed vertebrae caused by blunt-force impacts (such as car accidents)
- Severed spinal cord injuries leading to paralysis, paraplegia, or quadriplegia
As part of our representation, we identify the parties who are responsible for your injuries and hold them accountable. Our experienced attorneys have years of experience in dealing with insurance companies, and we have successfully negotiated and litigated cases involving high-value injury claims.

Do I Have a Spinal Cord Injury Claim?
There is no question that spinal cord injuries are severe, but how can you know whether you have a claim? If so, who is responsible for paying for your medical care and other expenses? These are questions our Chicago spinal cord injury lawyers can answer for you. We have a considerable amount of experience dealing with personal injury and workers' compensation cases for clients in Chicago and throughout northern Illinois who have experienced spine and other catastrophic injuries.
Our team takes on spinal cord injury claims involving:
- Traffic collisions, including car, truck, and motorcycle accidents
- Train, airplane, and other transportation accidents
- Construction site accidents, factory accidents, and other work-related accidents
- Falls from heights and slip and fall accidents
- Pedestrian and bicycle accidents
Depending on the case, you could have a claim against a distracted driver who caused a car accident, a fatigued truck driver who hit your motorcycle, or the manufacturer of a defective product that caused you harm. Any individual or company could be held liable if they caused your injuries.
Or, if you were injured in the course of your employment, you may be entitled to workers' comp benefits on a no-fault basis, which means you would not have to prove that someone else was to blame. Regardless of the circumstances surrounding your case, our attorneys can offer experienced counsel.
Fighting for Spine Injury Victims in Chicago
The lifetime cost of a spinal cord injury is considerable. The National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center (NSCISC) reports that the healthcare and living expenses associated with high tetraplegia (quadriplegia) are over $1 million in the first year alone. The lifetime cost of this spinal cord injury is about $4.2 million for a 25-year-old and about $2.6 million for a 50-year-old. That cost does not take lost earnings, wages, and benefits into account.
Confronting the astronomical cost of a spinal cord injury, our attorneys make it our mission to recover the highest possible settlement or award for every client. We know that our representation makes a direct impact on their ability to get the care and support they need, and that is why our Chicago spinal cord injury lawyers don't give up. That is why we fight tooth and nail day in and day out.
No Fees Unless We Recover Compensation
We cannot fix a body that has been paralyzed. However, what we can do at Morici, Longo & Associates is to restore your sense of justice while obtaining the compensation you need. You can use this money to pay your medical bills and to compensate you for lost wages, ongoing therapy and rehabilitation, nursing care, pain and suffering, among other damages. Because we work on contingency fees, our clients owe us nothing up front. In fact, our clients only pay if we are able to successfully obtain a financial award or settlement on their behalf.
