Spinal Cord Injury
A spinal cord injury is very much a catastrophic injury, which means it has long-term or lifelong implications. Like the brain, the spinal cord is unable to grow back the way other body tissues can, and it controls essential, basic functions that may be gone forever after an injury. Victims of spinal cord injuries are left with permanent disabilities that range from complete paralysis to inability to walk and lack of sensation. Spinal cord injuries are emotionally, physically, and financially devastating for victims and their families.

We are experts at medical malpractice and personal injury recovery.
According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center (NSCISC), there are approximately 12,000 new cases of spinal cord injury each year in the United States. These individuals are now living with complete or incomplete tetraplegia or paraplegia. Tetraplegia, also known as quadriplegia, is the loss of function in all four limbs. Paraplegia involves just the lower half of the body.
Recent advancements in the way we treat spinal cord injuries have made it more likely that paralysis will be incomplete rather than complete. When someone suffers an incomplete injury, he or she maintains partial feeling and minimal physical ability in the body. When a spinal cord injury is complete, the victim will have no feeling or physical control below the site of the trauma.
