A spinal cord injury may be one of life’s cruelest twists of fate. If you suffered a spinal cord injury or if your loved one did, you have no doubt already experienced some of the great challenges that you may face for years after a car or construction site accident. You are doing the right thing by looking for a spinal cord injury attorney sooner rather than later. Uncovering the causes of the accident may lead to a successful claim for compensation after a car accident or construction site accident. A person with a spinal cord injury in essence becomes trapped in a body that does not respond to willful intentions of movement as it did before. Depending on the location and severity of the spinal cord injury, a wide range of abilities are likely lost or greatly diminished:
- The ability to walk
- The ability to take care of personal waste elimination independently
- The ability to use arms, hands and/or fingers
A person with a spinal cord injury may deal with these losses in a number of ways:
- By becoming sedentary
- By relying on other people to help
- By using mechanical and electronic aids, such as a motorized wheelchair or voice-activated computer software
Pursuing compensation for a spinal cord injury is not simply a good idea — it is essential for most injured people and their families who cannot pay the necessary costs themselves. Our Law Firm helps injured people recover compensation from any and all relevant sources.

The spinal cord is an amazing part of the body. It is the central communication system that allows our brains to control how our bodies move and function. Without the functionality of our spinal cords the quality of life and our abilities are irrevocably altered. There are numerous ways in which spinal cord injuries can take place:
- When heavy force hits the body
- Contact sports as well as many other types of recreational activities
- Accidents involving moving vehicles, transportation or even amusement park rides
- Beatings such as from being attacked or mugged
- Falls particularly off of buildings, bridges or construction sites
- Surgery, botched deliveries and medical malpractice

Common initial symptoms can include difficulties in breathing, numbness or loss of sensation, paralysis, bowel or bladder control problems, changes in perception or sensation as well as pain. These are all very serious and should not be taken lightly regardless of any perceived level of pain or the severity of the accident.
