  Spinal Injuries
A spinal cord injury is one of the worst injuries that a person can suffer. It can be debilitating mentally, physically, and financially. If you are suffering from a painful spinal injury, then you are not alone. In fact, more than 250,000 people in the U.S. currently live with some type of spinal cord injury. When you are dealing with the pain of a spinal cord injury, you may feel confused about where to turn for help. Look no further than the legal representatives at our firm to help you get the support you deserve. If your injury is the result of another’s negligent act, then you may have a case to receive the money you need.

What Is a Spinal Cord Injury?
A spinal cord injury is an injury to the spinal cord that results in a loss of movement, which may include paralysis. These types of injuries may be the result of a horrific event, such as a slip and fall accident or car accident. A spinal cord injury does not stop at just the back. It can create a mecca of health problems that can affect every part of your body, including blood pressure, heart dysfunction, bowel and bladder problems as well as muscle spasm and loss of sexual function. The seriousness of the injury is directly impacted by which part of the spine was affected. Each part of the spine controls different body functions.
  • Coccygeal vertebrae (Tailbone) – This section has control over the sensation from the skin on the lower back.
  • Sacral vertebrae (Hips) – This area manages the thighs, lower parts of legs, feet, and most of the external genital organs.
  • Lumbar vertebrae (Middle back) – This part manages the lower abdomen and back, as well as buttocks, parts of the legs, and sectors of the external genital organs.
  • Thoracic vertebrae (Upper Back) – This section runs the chest muscles, some back muscles, and parts of the abdomen
  • Cervical vertebrae (Neck) – This section manages the back of the head, neck, shoulders, arms, hands, and the diaphragm.

Why Won’t Insurance Help?
Insurance companies often deny claims for chronic pain and other disabling symptoms that are associated with a spinal cord injury. Insurance companies may claim that these symptoms are natural or stem from a preexisting condition. As a result, your medical bills can create a financial hole that you may never be able to dig yourself out of. Your best defense is to call us first. We will help fight to get you the money you deserve when you are suffering from a spinal cord injury. We will take care of your defense; you just worry about feeling better.
