Spinal Injury Lawyers
Any type of spinal injury can be incapacitating, including back injuries. Anyone suffering from a complete spinal cord injury faces tremendous physical and financial challenges. When someone else is responsible for causing your personal injury, our lawyers can help you recover compensation.
Types of spinal injuries
There are many different types of spinal injuries. Incomplete spinal cord injury is where only a partial dysfunction occurs. While one side of the body may be completely paralyzed, the other side may not, and you may be able to move your arm or leg on that side. With a complete spinal cord injury, both sides of the body have equal dysfunction, such as paralysis on both sides.
Complete spinal cord injuries also have other medical classifications. Tetraplegia or quadriplegia involves spinal injury at the neck, which results in paralysis and muscle strength loss from the neck down, affecting all four extremities. Paraplegia occurs lower in the back and results in paralysis of the lower half of the body, including the legs. More on this webpage
Causes of spinal injury
Motor vehicle accidents are the most prevalent cause of spinal cord injuries. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 46 percent of spinal injuries result from motor vehicle accidents, 22 percent result from falls, 16 percent from violence and 12 percent from sports accidents. In the most severe cases, spinal injuries lead to wrongful death.
Back injury symptoms
If you suffer from a back injury in a car accident or truck accident, you should see a medical professional. Symptoms of a back injury often include the following:
Urinary or bowel problems
Numbness or tingling in the buttocks, leg, foot or groin
Inability to walk
