Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries
The severity of a spinal cord injury can vary greatly depending on which
portion of the spinal cord is injured. Depending on the area and severity,
a person can lose some or majority of their sensory functions since the

Long-Term Healthcare Needs
Accurate identification of your need for ongoing care in a spinal cord
injury case resulting in
quadriplegia or paraplegia will usually require a physiatrist specializing in central nervous system
cases, a vocational rehabilitation expert or occupational therapist, an
economist, and a life care planning specialist, as well as consulting
physicians and surgeons. We anticipate that the defense will contest every
element of your damages demand, so we document your losses and future
requirements as specifically as possible.
