Hendler Flores Law represented the family of a decorated Navy Veteran who was exposed to asbestos while serving on a warship in Vietnam. He later died from mesothelioma, leaving his wife to provide for their 3 young daughters. Scott Hendler and co-counsel Michael Brickman negotiated several settlements with asbestos companies for the family, and also won a $13.8 million verdict against Owens Corning Fiberglas, a company that made asbestos pipe covering for Navy vessels. The compensation recovered was more than enough to secure the financial future of the family.

Common Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries can result from various types of accidents such as vehicle crashes, high-impact physical activities, such as sports and recreation, slips and falls, and violent incidents such as battery or a gunshot wound. When the spinal cord is damaged, performing everyday activities like driving, washing dishes or picking up your child can be excruciatingly difficult and even basic tasks such as dressing or feeding yourself may be impossible. Some examples of common spinal cord injuries include:
- Hemiparesis: Occurs when one side of the body is paralyzed.
- Paraplegia: Occurs when there is damage to the spinal cord causing complete or partial paralysis.
- Quadriplegia: Caused by damage to the spinal cord in the neck area and typically results in loss of movement and feeling to arms and legs.
These types of injuries can severely affect daily living, impacting both your quality of life and the quality of life of your family members.
