The spinal cord and neurological system are among the most delicate parts of the body. Any sort of pressure on the spinal cord, whether from a bone, disk, hematoma or trauma, can cause serious neurologic injuries that can cause symptoms that run the gamut from simple numbness to permanent paralysis. When the injury is to the lower spinal cord it can cause a condition known as cauda equina syndrome, which, if left untreated, can lead to permanent paralysis.

A spine injury is a catastrophic injury that can result from a number of negligent actions. As a skilled personal injury lawyer, I am able to represent clients with spinal cord injury lawsuits resulting from the following:

  • Medical malpractice: a doctor or surgeon fails to diagnose spinal cord bleeding or pressure on the spinal cord, a surgical error results in a spinal cord nerve being hit, other surgical trauma.
  • Auto accidents: passenger accidents, severe trucking accidents, rollover accidents, and other traumatic car accidents.
  • Slip and fall accidents: severe spine injuries resulting from a slip and fall on cement floors, slippery floors, and icy sidewalks.

Impact of a Spinal Cord Injury

A moment of negligence can result in a lifetime of injuries that can include loss of mobility, sensation, or the ability to manage simple daily tasks. Whether you have suffered a spinal cord injury resulting in paraplegia or quadriplegia, it is likely that you are coping with many lifestyle changes and enduring costly therapies to overcome the challenges of your disability. You need a serious spinal cord injury lawyer to protect your right to obtain complete compensation so that you can focus your attention on your health and recovery.
