Client Review:

"I was hit from behind on the interstate and there wasn't much damage to my car. I hit my head pretty hard on the steering wheel and had severe back pain. The attorney made sure he got me a great settlement offer even though my car wasn't totaled. The staff found me a chiropractor near me and answered all of my questions. One thing I like best about this firm is how well they communicate. They kept me updated every step of the way and explained everything so that I could understand. Hopefully I never get in a car accident again but I will be sure to tell my friends and family to use this firm if they ever get in an accident."

About the Spinal Cord Injuries

The spinal cord runs from the brain, down the center of the back, and ends slightly above the waist. The spinal cord consists of nerves which send information between the brain stem and the rest of the body. The spinal cord is also protected by 33 ring-shaped bones, or vertebrae, making up the spinal column. Any sudden, serious blow to the spinal column can dislocate or fracture the vertebrae, damaging the surrounding nerves in the spinal cord.

Types of Spinal Cord Injuries:
Spinal cord injuries are classified as partial or complete depending upon the severity of the damaged nerves

  • Partial: There is minimal function and feeling below the injury. The victim may be able to move one limb a little more than the other or have more sensation on one side than the other.
  • Complete: There is no sensation at the point of injury and practically not able to move limb.

Whether an injury is complete or partial may determine the outcome of your case. Many individuals with a partial spinal cord injury may experience a significant physical recovery meaning they may recover fully while injury victims with a complete spinal cord injury will be totally paralyzed.

It’s important to choose the right attorney

Many times these cases require large sums of money to prosecute and you will need a law firm that has the resources to handle such cases. Our law firm is staffed with spinal cord accident lawyers that can help you receive the compensation you deserve.
