Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers

When a person suffers from a spinal cord injury (SCI), it means that they experienced a traumatic event that caused damage to any part of their spinal cord or to the nerves at the end of their spinal cord. The two most common types of SCI are compression, when pressure is placed onto the spinal cord, and contusion or a bruising of the spinal cord. Other spinal cord injuries include lacerations and central cord syndrome.

If a person has suffered from a severe SCI, they may experience:

  • Bladder infections
  • Loss of sensation and reflex function
  • Lung infections
  • Muscle spasms
  • Pain
  • Paralysis
  • Sensitivity to stimuli
  • Sexual dysfunction

There are many different causes of SCI. The most common include:

  • Bullet or stab wounds
  • Diving accidents
  • Electric shock
  • Extreme twisting of the trunk
  • Motor vehicle accident
  • Slips and falls
  • Sports injuries
  • Workplace accidents

Spinal cord injuries are incredibly serious and they may permanently affect your life. In addition to the incredibly physical pain and emotional suffering they afford, the financial costs associated with your medical bills can be astronomical. If your spinal cord injury was the result of someone’s negligent actions, you may be able to hold them responsible.
