Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer

If you have injured your spinal cord in an accident, then you may be facing long-term or permanent injury. When someone else is at-fault for your injury, then you deserve to recover compensation for your medical bills, lost-wages, emotional trauma and other damages that resulted from the incident.

Effects of a Spinal Cord Injury

Since the spinal cord is the center of the body’s communication, injury can have a devastating effect on the victim, including:

  • Paralysis (quadriplegia, paraplegia, or hemiplegia)
  • Loss of organ control
  • Heart problems
  • Spasms
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Changes in sexual function or lack of fertility
  • Intense pain

When you are seeking medical treatment for your spinal cord injury, be sure to save all possible documents. This will help you later on when claiming compensation, as the courts will need proof of your injury from medical professional.

What caused your spinal cord injury?

Spinal cord injury may result from a number of different types of accidents. While car accidents and other types of motor vehicle accidents are especially common, there are also other causes, such as:

  • Construction accidents
  • Industrial accidents
  • Sports
  • Violence
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Defective products
  • Falls
