Spinal Cord Injury

Helping you receive compensation for your spinal cord injuries

Every year, approximately 12,500 people are diagnosed with a spinal cord injury across the U.S. Much like brain injuries, spinal cord injuries are not visible and have the power to forever alter the course of your life. Whether caused by a car crash, slip and fall or other circumstances, one accident is enough to cause extreme paralysis and leave you and your family with a lifetime of medical costs. If you or a loved one has suffered a spinal cord injury due to someone else’s irresponsible behavior, or carelessness, we can help.

Spinal Cord Injury Facts:

  • Approximately 276,000 people currently living in the U.S. are dealing with spinal cord injuries.
  • Vehicle crashes are responsible for about 38% of spinal cord injuries. Other leading causes include falls (30%) and violence (14%).
  • People with a spinal cord injury are two to five time more likely to die prematurely than those without a spinal cord injury.

Understanding spinal cord injuries

  • A spinal cord injury is defined as damage to any part of the spinal column or the nerves within, which often causes permanent changes below the injury site. Since the spinal cord is tasked with carrying messages between the brain and body, you may experience full or partial loss of motor control and sensation.
