Spinal Cord Injury

Help From Our Santa Rosa Injury Lawyers

Spinal cord injury is a disabling medical condition that often leads to impaired function or complete loss of sensory, motor and voluntary reflexes. Spinal cord injuries may result from a direct blow to the spinal cord or from damage to the surrounding tissues and blood vessels. Damaged vessels or tissues disrupt the central nervous system's communication process. A spine injury is one of the most traumatic and life-changing personal injuries a victim can suffer as a result of someone else's negligence.

Our Santa Rosa injury attorneys, who have years of experience in personal injury cases, understand the complex legal issues and the life-long challenges spine injury victims face. With this in mind, they aggressively pursue the responsible party through the legal system in order to obtain the compensation you deserve for your pain and suffering, medical bills and/or any other expenses associated with your condition.

Spinal Cord Injuries in Santa Rosa

Spine injuries are divided into two levels of severity: complete spinal cord injury and incomplete spinal cord injury. Individuals who suffer from a complete spinal cord injury are fully disabled below the site of the injury. Victims of incomplete spine injuries have some feeling or some movement ability below the site of the injury. However, any type of spine injury is extremely serious and requires immediate medical attention, physical therapy and rehabilitation in order to prevent further damage and, if possible, restore some function. The most common factors that lead to spine injuries, and thus permanent paralysis, include car accidents, birth injuries, assaults, defective products and other situations frequently caused by negligence. In such cases the spinal cord injury victim is often eligible to receive monetary damages from responsible parties and/or insurance companies.

Sadly, car and truck accidents account for more than 40 percent of all spinal cord injuries, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. If you are or someone you love sustained spinal cord injuries due to someone else's negligence, you may be eligible to receive compensation for medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, and pain and suffering.
