Los Angeles Spinal Injury Lawyer

Basic Facts of Spinal Injury

Spinal injuries are most severe when spinal cord tissue is bruised, torn or crushed. A person could actually "break his back or neck" and yet not sustain a spinal cord injury if only the bones or vertebra around the spinal cord are damaged. With care, the back will heal, leaving the spinal cord unaffected. Spinal cord injuries occur mostly in men between ages 16 and 30. Motor vehicle accidents involving cars, trucks, motorcycles, bicycles and pedestrians hit by vehicles account for nearly half of all spinal cord injuries. Other common causes are:

As many as 400,000 Americans live with spinal cord injuries today. Most sufferers will continue to need medical care and personal assistance throughout their lives. The physical, emotional and financial strain of a recent spinal cord injury or the loss of a loved one due to such an injury devastates not only the victim, but the entire family. In these circumstances, finding a compassionate and knowledgeable Los Angeles Spinal Injury Attorney is vital to help you obtain adequate compensation.

Spinal Injury Lawyer in Los Angeles

When the spine has been damaged, messages to and from the brain do not flow through the injured area, reducing or inhibiting control and function of certain body parts. Usually body functions above the point of injury will work, while areas below that point will be impaired. Depending on the location and severity of damage, a victim of a spinal cord injury will lack the ability to move, feel, breathe easily or perform other normal functions of living. Complete trauma results in paralysis, with no movement or sensation below the level of the injury.

Often accidents are due to another's negligence. Reckless driving and failure to provide safe working conditions are two types of careless behavior that can lead to spinal injuries. You need a relentless, dedicated professional who is knowledgeable in the medical and legal challenges associated with spinal injury. If a loved one has died from spinal injury due to another's negligence, family members may be compensated for lost income, hospital and funeral expenses as well as emotional damage.

If you or a loved one has been the victim of negligence, contact a Los Angeles spinal injury lawyer from the firm today.
