What Causes Spinal Injuries?
Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a term used to describe any injury to the spinal cord that results in a loss of sensation or function of the body. Approximately two million people worldwide and nearly 200,000 in the United States live with a spinal cord injury.
Any trauma that compresses, pushes sideways or cuts the spinal cord may cause SCI. Whiplash is a common injury in car accidents that results from sudden backward and forward motion. It can cause chronic pain, reduced range of motion and may lead to spinal injury.
In most instances, insurance companies and negligent parties are obligated to provide victims with compensation for their injuries but insurers often avoid payment. We will help you defray medical bills and provide for lost potential income. The issue of who caused the accident may or may not be relevant, depending on your state.
It is important that you consult with an attorney immediately if you know or suspect a spinal cord injury. The law imposes a statute of limitations, or time limit, to pursue your legal claim. Call 800-469-6476, or email us to set up a free consultation.
