Accidents and the Effects of a Spinal Cord Injury
Spinal cord injuries are divided into two categories:
• Traumatic spinal cord injuries: These result from a traumatic blow to the back, causing the bones and tendons to press on or sever the spinal cord. The swelling and bruising after the blow may cause additional damage. Traumatic spinal cord damage most often results from motorcycle accidents, car accidents and falls from heights. An assault or injured spinal cord during surgery can also cause this type of spinal cord damage.
• Non-traumatic spinal cord injuries: These typically result from untreated diseases, such as viruses or undiagnosed cancer. If your doctor failed to diagnose cancer or treat another illness that led to spinal cord damage, you may be entitled to a medical malpractice claim.
The spinal cord is an essential component of the central nervous system, carrying messages from the brain to other parts of the body. A serious spinal cord injury can lead to partial or even complete paralysis. Victims may suffer paraplegia (loss of movement in the legs and lower part of the body) or quadriplegia (loss of movement in both arms and legs). Our trial lawyers are ready to prosecute these complex cases on your behalf.
At Dixon Law Firm, our trial lawyers are dedicated to helping victims suffering from serious and disabling spinal cord and nerve injuries recover full compensation. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured or disabled, or you simply need more information, please call us at (206) 330-0212.
