A Spinal Cord Injury Is Devastating
All parts of the spinal cord are vulnerable to injury, especially in car accidents and other types of personal injury incidents. After sustaining a serious spinal cord injury, you may be left with a range of symptoms, from numbness and tingling to paraplegia or quadriplegia. Since many spinal cord injuries are permanent and have a drastic impact on the victim’s life, it is essential that you ensure your rights or the rights of a loved one are protected.

Learn More About Spinal Cord Injuries
Motor vehicle accidents and other accidents can put a large amount of force on the neck and back, causing the spinal cord to become twisted, crushed, pinched, bruised or completely severed. We handle spinal cord injury matters that have resulted from a range of situations, including car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, workplace accidents and medical malpractice.
Depending on the location of the injury and extent of nerve damage, individuals with a damaged spinal cord may suffer total or partial paralysis in the arms, hands, legs and other extremities. Due to the extreme trauma caused by a spinal cord injury and the future needs that are often associated with that injury, it is of the utmost importance to us that we recover compensation that suits the needs of our clients.
