Spinal Cord Injuries

Approximately 8,000 people receive spinal cord injuries in the United States each year. Many spinal cord injuries are the result of a traumatic accident caused by the negligent act of another party. 

Serious spinal cord or back injuries can change life dramatically, such as your ability to work, care for yourself, and perform everyday tasks. Even simple tasks like eating and sleeping become difficult. 

The affects of a spinal cord injury or back injury can vary greatly. Most people think of paralysis, quadriplegia, or paraplegia, but a spinal cord injury can also cause: 

  • Loss of feeling or persistent tingling
  • Weakness in hands, arms, or legs
  • Limited range of movement
  • Inability to walk long distances or stand for any length of time
  • Nerve impingement or sciatica
  • Pain that can interfere with work and sleep

Spinal cord and back injuries, whether temporary or permanent, often require months if not a lifetime of medical and rehabilitation expenses.  Victims of spinal cord and back injuries experience a loss of income and pain and suffering. Because of their significant damages, spinal cord injury victims should select a law firm that has the expertise, resources and an established record of significant results.
