Getting you the compensation you deserve after a spinal cord injury

Spinal cord injuries occur when any parts of the neck, back, lower back, connective tissues, surrounding muscles, vertebrae, and nerve cells are injured.

Not only can spinal cord injuries be very dangerous and life threatening, they can cause paralysis or death. The spinal cord acts as both a support beam for your body, holding your body upright, and also a nerve-highway, sending signals from the brain to much of the body.

Damage to the spinal cord can result in life-changing injuries or disabilities. Spinal cord injury victims often require non-stop medical attention and care to accomplish even the simplest tasks.

Spinal cord injuries are made additionally difficult because they can arise months after the incident that originally caused them. A spinal cord injury can be detected through symptoms such as:

· Pain
· Breathing Problems
· Weak Muscles
· Loss of Feeling
· Seizures
· Blood Pressure Problems
· Heart Rate Problems
· Loss of Bladder or Bowel Control
· Digestion Problems
· Sexual Dysfunction
