Brain & Spinal Cord Injuries

Brain and spinal cord injuries can create financial uncertainty for families struggling with mounting medical bills, the need for in-home nursing care and the emotional impact of a catastrophic injury.

Hawkins consults neurologists and other medical experts, as well as life care planners and economists, when determining the medical and financial needs created by his client's injuries.

Medical Complications Associated With Head and Spinal Cord Injuries

Regardless of whether a traumatic brain injury, back or spine injury is involved, it isn't always clear what the long-term consequences will be even months afterwards. A severe concussion can lead to memory loss, equilibrium problems, even cognitive impairment. Back injuries can lead to muscle and nerve damage, resulting in the loss of dexterity, numbness in the extremities and chronic pain. In assessing costs associated with your injuries, it's important to consider future medical costs as well.

As your attorney, Mr. Hawkins considers the future impact of a head or spinal cord injury on his clients. Working closely with experienced, respected neurologists, Mr. Hawkins documents the scope of his client's injuries in light of recent medical tests and established research data.

At the Hawkins Law Firm, Mr. Hawkins explains and discusses estate planning strategies you might want to consider in order to provide for the care of an injured spouse or child. Establishing a special needs trust is only one of several different options Mr. Hawkins can explain after an award or settlement has been reached in your case.

Client Reviews
I've known Phil for over 4 years now and have always been very happy with his service to me. Anytime I had questions or issues Phil would always find me the answers I needed and always in a timely and professional manner. I never had a problem with him returning my calls even at odd hours. He was a tremendous help to me and still is and I was very pleased with the outcome. I fully understand that I was not his only client but he still always found time to talk to me when I needed him and to reassure me when I stressed over my situation. Angela D.
I had Phil Hawkins as my attorney on several cases and have been extremely satisfied with his services. Him and his staff kept me informed and up to date on every step. He was very professional and very knowledgeable on all my cases over the past 5 years. My future was looking pretty dim there for awhile because of my injuries and age but Mr Hawkins came through and I can now relax. I found him and his staff very polite, courteous and compassionate to my circumstances and the final results were very satisfying. Frederick J.
I am very grateful for the support of the Hawkins Law Firm. It is not common to walk into law firm and be greeted by a dog! However, as it is only in a time of crisis that one needs to seek out the help of an attorney - I found this to be a very unique and helpful comfort! Not only did Mr. Hawkins take the time to address all of my questions and concerns; but the warm and welcoming environment of his law firm, along with his staff, made an otherwise stressful situation a overall less overwhelming experience.
