Working Toward The Compensation You Deserve
Damage to the spinal cord may be caused by trauma, loss of blood supply or complications from infection or a tumor. While not as frequent, spinal cord injuries may also be caused by mistakes made during operations on the neck and back. In instances where doctor negligence is suspected, such injury may give rise to a medical malpractice claim. Other potential causes include construction site accidents and diving or swimming pool accidents.
Any type of trauma to the spinal cord carries a lasting impact on most aspects of a person’s life. Recovery from a spinal cord injury is often grueling — both physically and emotionally. Though some people may go on to lead normal, productive lives after a spinal cord injury, the bulk of victims will need specialized care, assistive devices such as wheelchairs and intensive rehabilitation.
As your legal advocates, we will help you obtain compensation to cover medical treatments, which may include physical therapy, medications to control pain and surgery to address herniated disks and other spinal cord trauma.
