Cases involving spinal cord injuries are serious commitments requiring a significant investment of attorney time and resources. The Strom Law Firm will help you get through the experience. We are now investigating and evaluating all kinds Spinal Cord injury cases.
A spinal cord injury is a catastrophic event that deeply impacts the life of the survivor and the survivor’s family. Damages in any catastrophic case are extensive. If you speak to any seasoned trial lawyer you will learn that problems associated with a spinal cord injury case can be severe and potentially life threatening.
One major spinal condition that can occur is Spinal Arachnoidis. It is a severe pain disorder caused by the inflammation of the arachnoid, one of the membranes that surround and protect the nerves of the spinal cord. Spinal Arachnoidis is characterized by severe stinging, “burning pain,” and neurological problems.
Spinal Cord Injury lawyers will undoubtedly face a number of problems that they would unlikely encounter in other personal injury actions when representing individuals rendered quadriplegic or paraplegic as a result of the tortious conduct of others. Perhaps the most difficult issues to address involve potentially life shortening sequelae:
- respiratory impairments (respirator needs),
- physical impairments (sensory and motor losses),
- bowel and bladder impairments (suppositories, catheter and bag use),
- pressure sores (decubitus ulcers, ischemic ulcers, etc.),
- and often severe depression and other psychosocial impairment.
