Spinal Cord Injury

San Mateo Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers

Spinal cord injuries often occur in accidents where the bone disks of the spine – the vertebrae – are fractured or dislocated due to trauma. While the spinal cord may not be severed, pieces of vertebrae may impact nerves and cord tissues, disrupting signals between the spine and other parts of the body. In the worst cases, this damage can result in sensory loss and paralysis, including quadriplegia and paraplegia.

At the San Mateo law firm of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos, our spinal cord injury attorneys understand the damage and complications that can arise after serious spinal cord injuries and work hard to help our clients recover from those injuries. With more than 75 years of personal injury experience, our spinal cord lawyers have the legal knowledge to pursue benefits for current and future medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Client Reviews
I retained Ilya Frangos of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos on a business litigation matter involving a frivolous lawsuit filed in federal court. Ilya guided me through the case and helped make sure that I understood the process… He always took the time to answer all my questions and helped put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend him and this firm! Agatha
I called Mr Frye after my wife had passed away… John listened to my case over the phone, after aggreeing to represent me, handled everything from there… I have already recommended Mr Frye to a friend for help with a similiar case and would without reserve recommend him to anybody. He came highly recommended as an expert in these type cases, and I believe he demonstrated this personally. Jerry
Chantel Fitting is as good as it gets. If you have been injured, need help and cant get what you know you deserve from one of the big insurance companies, then you have got to call Chantel. She will fight for you like it was her that was hurt… She cares. Call her. You wont be sorry you did. Cindy C.

I was fortunate enough to have been represented and retained by this law firm for my injuries sustained by an under insured motorist. I must say Chantel Fitting and Illya Frangos went above and beyond trying to resolve my case… I would highly recommend this law firm and stop shopping around if you are looking for the best, as this is as good as it gets.
