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.

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.
