If you or a loved one have suffered a spinal cord injury, you already know that this can alter your life forever. Regardless of whether your injury was caused from an auto accident, a work-related injury, a fall or other type of accident, the repercussions of permanent spinal cord damage can mean a lifetime of pain, disability, trauma, and ongoing medical treatment and the medical bills that come with it.

Since these injuries are quite rare, many insurance companies do not have set policies or procedures for dealing with these types of injuries. That’s why it’s imperative that you have the legal representation you need immediately.
Because spinal cord injuries can often go undetected, it’s very important to be thoroughly examined by a doctor if you’ve been in an auto or other type of accident.
Spinal cord injuries can range from a simple case of whiplash to extreme disability and even paralysis. The spinal cord is primarily grouped into three parts:
The various parts of the spinal cord attach to nerves that affect various parts of the body. Common complaints for spinal cord injuries include back pain, leg pain, and neck and shoulder pain.
