Experience. Strength. Wisdom. Success.

As a Seattle Spine Injury attorney, I have been working to obtain justice for my clients for over 37 years. My law practice includes cases representing clients who have suffered debilitating spinal injuries from accidents or the negligence of others. Here are two representative results for my clients over the past several years:

  • $4,000,000 for a young man who sustained severe head and spine injuries when he was brutally beaten by his cellmate in prison. This is believed to be among the highest settlements ever paid by the Department of Corrections to an inmate injured by another inmate.
  • $425,000 for a client who sustained herniated discs and lower back injuries when an elevator malfunctioned.

An injury to the spine or neck can be a catastrophic injury that can result from a variety of causes, including auto accidents, motorcycle or bicycle accidents, medical malpractice or defective products. Some who suffer from back and spinal cord injuries are paralyzed. Other victims may suffer from radiating or shooting pain in the arms or legs, experience weakness or tingling in extremities, or lose control of limbs or bladder and bowel functions. Many people who live with a spinal cord injury have secondary complications that might include pain, respiratory and heart problems, bladder and bowel dysfunction, pressure sores, respiratory complications, urinary tract infections, spasticity and scoliosis.

These types of injuries can completely change the life of the victim. Some victims will experience a full recovery; others will be completely and permanently paralyzed.

Dealing with personal injury claims involving spine and neck injuries requires a level of knowledge and expertise in the field that not all attorneys have. That is why it is important to review attorneys’ credentials, case results and experience to identify an attorney qualified to handle your case.

I have been very pleased working with Mark Shepherd. I was put at ease knowing I was in sympathetic, yet professional hands. My mother was beyond impressed after meeting him. Based off our experience, my mom and I will refer him again. Should I need legal assistance in the future, I will, without a doubt, use Mark Shepherd. I appreciate his demeanor, professionalism, and most of all, his ethical and honest drive to help people placed in ominous situations find justice. Thank you to Mark Shepherd and Rosa Gallagher.
