Spinal Cord Injuries Attorneys


Whether caused by a slip and fall accident, work-related accident, motor vehicle accident, motorcycle accident, or vehicle rollover, one of the most catastrophic injuries that someone may suffer is a spinal cord injury that results in paraplegia, quadriplegia, or other permanent disability.

What Is A Spinal Cord Injury?

A spinal cord injury is an injury to the nerves contained within the spinal canal. A spinal cord injury is often associated with trauma to the spinal column. Common causes of spinal cord injuries include slip and fall accidents, work-related accidents, motor vehicle accidents, motorcycle accidents, or vehicle rollover accidents. While some serious or catastrophic injuries heal over time, spinal cord injuries often leave the victim with permanent disabilities. A spinal cord injury may be categorized as complete, which means that nerve damage has obstructed all signals between the brain and body, or incomplete meaning that nerve damage has obstructed only some of the signals between the brain and body. In the most severe cases, a spinal cord injury may render the victim a paraplegic or quadriplegic.

What Is Paraplegia?

Paraplegia may be defined as the complete paralysis of the lower half of the body including both legs. Paraplegia is usually caused by damage to the spinal cord in any type of serious impact or falling accident.

What Is Quadriplegia?

Quadriplegia may be defined as the complete paralysis of the body from the neck down. Like paraplegia, quadriplegia is usually caused by damage to the spinal cord.
