Documenting the Consequences of Your Spinal Cord Damage

There are several ways that a neck, back or shoulder injury can have an effect on the functioning of the spinal cord, one of the most sensitive and important organs in the human body. The following are the major types of spinal cord injuries:

  • Herniated disks: A vertebral disk that has been herniated (also known as a slipped or bulging disk) can put pressure on the spinal cord and the nerves attached to it, causing pain, numbness, tingling and other sensations. Eventually, this can lead to further damage.
  • Spinal cord damage: If your spinal cord itself has been damaged, you may be experiencing significant pain and difficulty carrying out basic bodily functions.
  • Severing of the spinal cord: Someone whose spinal cord has been completely severed will become paralyzed in all parts of the body below the location of the injury. This can cause permanent paraplegia or quadriplegia.

When you are seeking personal injury compensation for a spinal cord injury, it is important to be prepared to demonstrate the economic and non-economic damages associated with your injuries, including those you are expected to continue to suffer in the future.

Our attorneys work with qualified experts to document the nature and extent of our clients’ spinal cord injuries so we can pursue the full compensation they deserve. Don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss how the experienced personal injury lawyers at our firm can help you.
