Spinal Cord Injuries / Paralysis
Would you like to speak with an attorney now?
Full or partial paralysis is one of the most life altering injuries a person can suffer. An individual’s loss of mobility can have a huge impact on his or her career, finances and future quality of life. Not only is it debilitating for the individual who has suffered the injury, it also has devastating lifelong effects for their family members. Spinal cord injury victims and their families often face huge medical bills related to the expense of back and neck injury, loss of income, years of painful rehabilitation or costly in-home care. Oftentimes, their homes are no longer suitable for them to live in and they are forced to move.
The spinal cord is a major nerve bundle protected by bones in the back that carries the nerve impulses from the brain to other areas of the body. In addition to partial or complete paralysis in the arms or legs, damage to the spinal cord can result in temporary or permanent loss of other critical body functions such as breathing, balance, digestion, body temperature and more. If you or a family member has suffered a debilitating spinal cord injury, please contact our dedicated paralysis attorneys today for a free initial consultation.
