Spinal cord accidents can result in catastrophic injuries. When the spinal cord receives a sudden or traumatic blow that causes fracture or dislocation of vertebrae, damage begins immediately. Most injuries to the spinal cord do not sever it completely. The level of damage will determine whether there is permanent paralysis of organs and/or limbs, or if a complete recovery is possible.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a spinal cord accident, I recommend a consultation with a personal injury lawyer at my firm. You may be entitled to recovery of costs from medical treatment, lost wages and loss of future income.
The signs and symptoms of spinal cord injuries include a loss of movement, loss of sensation, loss of bodily functions, pain, difficulty breathing or coughing and change in sexual function. My firm is committed to providing effective legal representation to those who have suffered personal injury from the recklessness of others. Common causes of spinal cord injuries are car accidents and other motor vehicle accidents, construction accidents, drunk driving accidents, slip & fall accidents and medical malpractice cases.
The results of spinal cord accidents can be devastating to the individual and also the loved ones of the injured. When permanent loss of function occurs in any part of the body, or several parts, the long-term care required can be costly to all concerned. My firm seeks full financial compensation for those injured. Compensation can be awarded to cover the medical costs involved with treatment and recovery, lost income and wages from the inability to work and sometimes pain and suffering.
