Understanding Spinal Cord Injuries

Our attorneys understand the complex nature of spinal cord injuries. The main function of your spinal cord is to carry signals from your body, through the nerves that run up and down your back, and to your brain. A spinal cord injury is usually the result of a fracture or blunt force that dislocates some of the disks that make up your spine and disrupts the sending of signals. When these injuries occur, you should immediately seek medical treatment to prevent further damage and determine the type of injury. During your personal injury claim, our attorneys will review your medical records to find out crucial information regarding your claim.

Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries may result from many different types of accidents. Our attorneys will assist you with many types of spinal cord injuries, such as the most common:

  • Motor Vehicle Accidents: Motor vehicle accidents can range in severity, some being minor in nature, while others are fatal. However, motor vehicle accidents are a major cause of spinal cord injuries.
  • Slip and Falls: Slip and fall accidents are another common cause for spinal cord injuries. While a slip and fall can occur in many places, it is often a result of negligence or wrongdoing on the part of another.

When engaging in everyday activities, such as operating a car or shopping in your favorite store, there are many legal obligations that are placed on individuals, business owners, and others.
