Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers

Without question, when the bundle of nerves making up the spinal cord are damaged or injured, the results can be devastating. In fact, spinal cord injuries are often fatal. Even those having sustained a nonfatal spinal cord injury are likely to need long-term treatment, depending on the location and extent of damage. In either case, victims and their families are left with a tremendous burden. What’s even more tragic is when a spinal cord injury is a result of negligence or wrongdoing of another. If you or a loved one is in this position, the spinal cord injury lawyers at the Harman Law Firm would like to speak with you.

In the wake of a catastrophic event such as a spinal cord injury, individuals and families may not know where to turn. While immediate medical treatment will work to stabilize and limit further damage, surgery may be necessary to help fuse the spine. Individuals may or may not regain some functional ability and may need to carry on with long-term care, rehabilitation, occupational therapy and psychological counseling.

Once you are stabilized medically, how will you find justice for yourself and your loved ones?

Accidents Resulting In Spinal Cord Injuries

Most notably associated with spinal cord injuries is paralysis, or loss of muscle, sensory and motor function in a specific region of the body. Yet, trauma to the spinal cord may manifest in other ways, such as poor coordination, numbness and tingling, loss of bladder and bowel control and pain. In either instance, the results can be life changing.

The following accidents are considered common causes of spinal cord injuries:

  • Vehicle Accidents
  • Slip or Fall
  • Violence (including gunshot and knife wounds)
  • Sports
  • Alcohol

When it comes to accidents leading to spinal cord injuries, special attention must be given to the causes. For instance, could the accident have been prevented? Was the accident a result of another’s negligence?
