Spinal Cord Injury

A spinal cord injury is the result of damaged cells or severed nerve tracts within the spinal cord and is usually caused by a traumatic event. Motor vehicle accidents are a leading cause, making up 44% of all spinal cord injuries. An individual with a spinal cord injury will most likely lose the ability to move or feel some portion of their body. Often these functions are regained within six months, but there is a chance that such an injury will result in long-term disability. If you suffer from a spinal cord injury, it is important to have someone with experience in serious injury cases represent your claim.
