Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries (SCI), are serious, often life-changing injuries. They are typically caused by traumatic event such as a motor vehicle accident, slip-and-fall accident, sports-related injury or gunshot that causes a bruising, compression or severing of the spinal cord that results in some form of loss of movement. These injuries can be devastating physically, emotionally and financially. If your spinal cord injury was caused by the negligence of another person, it is critical that you hire an attorney with experience handling these kinds of complex cases.

Spinal cord injuries are challenging because they require proof not only of the injury itself, but of the losses sustained because of the negligence of another.

Do Not Postpone Treatment — Get Help Now

Spinal cord injuries may not be immediately apparent. Because the tissue affected is typically soft, it may take two to four days before the pain peaks. Proper treatment is critical to treating a spinal cord injury. An accurate diagnosis and the right treatment are critical to recovery from a spinal cord injury. The sooner you obtain treatment, the better.

If you are concerned about seeing someone because you don't have health insurance, we can recommend a doctor to you. Having a detailed record of your injuries will be important when preparing your case.
