Representation For Individuals Paralyzed From Accidents

Serious car, truck, construction and other accidents can result in spinal cord injuries. Injuries to the spinal cord can cause paralysis and other life-changing conditions such as paraplegia and quadriplegia. In some cases, these types of paralysis are only temporary, but in others, spinal cord injuries require lifelong medical care and therapy.

Spinal Cord Damage Results And Complications

Damage to the spinal cord may affect the central nervous system, which can result in loss of motion and an inability to feel or move all parts of the body. Spinal cord damage may also result in:

  • Bruising and contusions
  • Broken vertebrae
  • Burst fractures
  • Scar tissue
  • Paraplegia
  • Quadriplegia

Many people who suffer these types of injuries will need care throughout their lives, including surgery, physical therapy, nursing care and other types of care. For our clients, we seek appropriate compensation to cover past, present and future medical costs.
