Spinal Cord Injuries

If you’ve been the victim of a spinal cord injury, you could be entitled to compensation. A Pennsylvania based spinal cord injury lawyer may be able to help.

A spinal cord injury is a life changing experience for both the victim and their family. Tasks that were once easy to complete now pose a challenge and the injured person may not even be able to care for themselves anymore. Common consequences of a spinal cord injury include but are not limited to:

  • Numbness
  • Loss of sensation
  • Paralysis
  • Chronic pain
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Loss of bodily functions
  • Trouble regulating blood pressure
  • Trouble regulating body temperature

Damage to the spinal cord cannot be reversed. Even with physical therapy, the victim may be in a wheelchair and will likely require lifelong medical treatment. The most common causes of spinal cord injuries include acts of violence, car accidents, work injuries, falls and sports injuries.
