Many victims of car and truck accidents, trip and fall, and medical malpractice are left with spinal cord injuries that dramatically impact their quality of life. Over the past few decades there have been many medical advances in the treatment and rehabilitation for spinal cord injury victims in Illinois and around the country.

The legal team at Newland & Newland, LLP is skilled in personal injury litigation involving spinal cord injury for clients in Chicagoland and throughout Illinois.
Impact of Spinal Cord Injury
Thousands of new spinal cord injuries are reported each year, from car and motorcycle accidents, gunshots wounds, serious falls, and surgical injury. The spinal column, along with the brain, comprises the highly delicate central nervous system. The boney structures of vertebrae along the spine protect the bundle of nerves along the back, from the waist to the brain. Injury to various areas along the spinal column can result in differing levels of pain and impairment, and all such injuries can seriously impact your life.
Depending upon the level and severity of spinal cord injury that involves the cervical, lumbar, or thoracic region of the back, you could suffer quadriplegia, paraplegia, loss of sensation and numbness, and other complications. Because there is no cure for most spinal cord injuries, severe cases require strong medications for pain and inflammation, and may require surgical interventions that carry the prospect of complications. Surgery on the spine is particularly risky, and can lead to surgical error and long-term disability.
