Spine Injuries & Paralysis

Get a Fair Settlement After a Back Injury

The spinal cord runs from the base of the brain at the back of the neck, down the spine to the waist. The purpose of the spinal cord is to carry messages from the brain to the rest of the body.

A spine injury can be caused by a sudden blow to your back that damages your vertebrae. Spine injuries are common results of car accidents and in serious falls. Spine injuries include bulging discs, herniated discs and back strain, as well as more serious injuries like temporary or permanent paralysis.

A personal injury claim on behalf of an accident survivor who is paralyzed or has another type of spine injury is medically complex and may come under attack from the insurance company. The insurance company may argue that no proof exists that the accident caused the damages spinal cord. To give yourself the best chance of maximizing your insurance settlement after a serious spine injury, it is important to work with an experienced personal injury attorney who will take the time your case deserves.
