Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer
Spinal Cord Injuries are one of the most serious injuries that a person can sustain in a motor vehicle collision. Car accidents are the leading cause of Spinal Cord Injuries and account for nearly half of new cases each year. Depending on the area of the spine involved and the severity of the injury, someone who suffers a Spinal Cord Injury may experience a complete loss of sensation and motor function in their limbs.
It is not unusual for someone to fail to immediately realize that they have suffered a spinal cord injury. It is possible for the numbness or paralysis associated with a Spinal Cord Injury to gradually take place as swelling in the spinal cord increases. Typically, first responders will prevent you from moving their head, neck, or back using braces and stretchers after an accident to ensure any possible Spinal Cord Injury is not made worse.
