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 a complete recovery is possible.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a spinal cord accident, I recommend a consultation with me, personal injury attorney Marc Sedwick. You may be entitled to recover costs from medical treatment, lost wages and the loss of future income.
Causes And Symptoms
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. At my firm, SedwickLaw, PC, I am committed to providing effective legal representation to those who have suffered personal injuries from the recklessness of others. Common causes of spinal cord injuries are car accidents and other motor vehicle accidents, construction accidents, drunk driving crashes, slip-and-falls and medical malpractice cases.
The results of spinal cord accidents can be devastating to individuals and also their loved ones. When permanent loss of function occurs in any part (or parts) of the body, the long-term care required can be costly to all concerned. I seek 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.
