Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries

Injuries to the spine can produce damage to bones, discs, or nerves that can cause a loss of feeling in different areas of the body. Common causes of spinal cord injuries include:

Any damage to the spine is a serious condition. It is not a situation where you try to resolve these claims on your own. Instead, you should consult with an experienced spinal cord injury attorney. Preparing these claims for negotiation requires extensive medical record documentation to illustrate the injury that resulted from the event. These claims can take years to complete, but a qualified attorney can guide you through the process for quick resolve and compensation.

Damages in Spinal Cord Injury Cases

Insurance companies are in the practice of settling claims as soon as possible. A  St. Matthews Spinal Cord Injury Attorney, however, will look at the medical records, lost wages, and any other damages to determine how much a claim is worth instead of statistics that insurance companies use.

Many cases settle, but can be litigated if necessary. If litigation is necessary, common damages are:

  • Medical expenses
  • Prescription costs
  • Lost wages (present and future)
  • Transportation expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Legal fees

Who Bears Liability for a Spinal Injury Case?

Even if you inadvertently contributed to your injury, this does not mean you should not seek justice or compensation. The Strom Law Firm will investigate, talk to any witnesses involved, and determine who is liable. We will also look at how these injuries could have been prevented.

Types of Spinal Cord Injuries

There are two general classifications of spinal cord injuries:

Complete spinal cord injuries include permanent damage to the affected area of the spinal cord. Conditions in which all the sensory and motor functions are lost, your injury would be considered complete.

Incomplete spinal cord injuries encompass partial damage to the affected area of the spinal cord. An injury considered incomplete would mean there is limited motor and sensory function.

The most common types of spinal cord injuries include:

  • Tetraplegia:Arms, hands, trunk, legs, and pelvic organs are all affected. This is commonly known as quadriplegia and is paralysis in all limbs.
  • Paraplegia:Paralysis affecting all or part of the trunk, legs, and pelvic organs. You may lose mobility or even lose all feeling in the lower part of your body.
  • Triplegia:Loss of mobility and sensation in a single arm and both legs resulting as a result of an incomplete spinal cord injury.

Spinal Cord Injury Signs and Symptoms

It is imperative to seek immediate medical attention if you suffer any type of spinal cord injury. The risk could be long-term, severe problems and there are complications as a result of not obtaining the necessary treatment. Spinal cord injuries can cause paralysis in varying degrees, but there are a few signs and symptoms that can help you determine your need for medical attention. It isn’t necessarily a blow to your back that can cause these types of injuries. Rather, you may not even feel anything initially to signal that something is wrong. If there is a remote possibility you have suffered an injury to your spinal cord because of an accident, you should look for the following:

  • Loss of movement and altered sensations(unable to feel heat, cold, and touch)
  • Difficulty breathing, clearing secretions from the lungs coughing or swallowing
  • Inability to control bladder or bowel functions
  • Muscle spasms and uncontrolled reflexes
  • Changes in sexual function and fertility
  • Pain along with intense stinging sensation

What Our Clients Say

They truly care
Mrs Vallery, who answered the phone took more care and attention to detail than any other law office, that I have called, in 2 years+. She diligently took notes to give to the lawyers and cared about my situation and let me actually tell everything without cutting me short. Out of over 100 law offices, this is rare treatment. Care. Consideration. That means more than anything going through this…
Professional Representation, Satisfying Legal Outcome!
My wife and I retained Bakari Sellers to represent our son in a case in Richland County. We found Mr. Sellers, his assistant Stephanie, and the rest of the staff at Strom, extremely courteous and professional. We really appreciated Mr. Sellers’ straightforward and honest approach. We believe this is a very competent law firm, and are satisfied with the legal outcome they achieved. We would highly recommend them!

From Self-Representation to Victory in SSDI Case!
My experience with Mario and his staff was outstanding. When everyone said to give up my case with SSDI and after being poorly represented and losing. I had to file my own appeals and represent myself. I literally called every attorney in the book. Then I called Mario cold – I expected one more no! Well, this gentleman took my case and won. He knows the law and cares a lot. I am proud to call him my friend. If you need a professional to help you, call these guys.

A Lifesaver in the Courtroom, Ensuring Freedom with A1 Professionalism
Needed a lifesaver. I had gotten myself into a bad situation and the possibility of going to prison. Through the diligence and hard work done by attorney Alley B., I was able to walk out of that courtroom a free man. No tricks just hard down attorney work. She was an A1 professional and knew every inch of the Law pertaining to my case. For that, I am forever grateful.
A Winning Team at Strom Law Firm!
John Alphin was great. We basically worked together for 22 months. Bakari Sellers was also on the team and together those 2 guys were fabulous. Won the case and I’m still a client of Strom law firm. Thank you and awesome law firm.
