We Will Work Hard To Recover The Compensation You Need
The spinal cord can be injured in any accident that exerts sufficient force on the body. Car accidents and falls are the leading causes of spinal cord injuries, but they can also be caused by workplace accidents and gunshot wounds. If a negligent third party caused your injury, you may be entitled to compensation.
In general, the higher on the spine an injury occurs, the more body systems will be affected. An injury to the neck (cervical spine) may cause paralysis and loss of use of all muscles and body systems below the level of the injury. People with cervical spine injuries often suffer quadriplegia. Injuries to the back (thoracic and lumbar spine) can result in paraplegia.
Spinal cord injury patients may need medical care for the rest of their lives. The lifetime cost of caring for a person with paraplegia or quadriplegia can easily exceed $1 million. We will work with medical experts, life-care planners and economists to determine the current and future financial needs of the injury victim and his or her family.
