Spinal Cord Injuries

Besides brain injuries, the most catastrophic injuries we see in our practice are injuries to the spinal cord. Symptoms of spinal cord injuries can be lifelong and severe. They include loss of memory, loss of language, loss of mobility, loss of personality, inability to care for oneself, deep depression and anger.

These are the usual causes of spinal cord injuries:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Falls and falling objects
  • Construction site accidents
  • Other work accidents
  • Diving accidents
  • Pedestrian and bicycle accidents
  • Negligent security

Injuries in any of these situations can lead to paraplegia or quadriplegia.

Spinal Cord Injury • Back Injury • Neck Injury

Not all spinal injuries affect the spinal cord itself, the main conduit of the central nervous system. We also represent clients suffering from neck injuries, disk injuries and compression fractures, caused or exacerbated by injuries due to negligence.

Spinal cord injuries are complicated. It is important to be thoroughly checked by a doctor to identify unforeseen issues that may endanger your health further.
