Spinal Cord Injury
Catastrophic Injury for Accident Victims
The critical functions of the spinal cord make injury a potentially devastating event. Traumatic injury to the spinal cord poses a significant risk of neurologic impairments, including musculoskeletal (resulting in incomplete or complete paralysis), respiratory, urinary, or gastrointestinal defects. Long-term complications from a spinal cord injury include any psychological side effects, such as depression and anxiety. We understand that coping with the challenges of a spinal cord injury requires significant resources.

We Understand the Long Haul Ahead
The physical and psychological impairments resulting from a spinal cord injury make this type of case one of the most serious. The medical costs are overwhelming for most households, with added expense for required accommodations and adaptations.
If the spinal cord injury resulted from another’s negligence, that person or entity may be liable for the resulting expenses. Overall, 85% of spinal cord injury patients who survive the first 24 hours are still alive 10 years later. This typically means expensive accommodations are needed over a long-term period. Other expenses which arise include future medical expenses, often coupled with losing income if the victim was employed.
