Spine Injury Lawyers

Spinal injuries are caused by trauma to the vertebrae, disks, ligaments or to the spinal cord itself. Although there may are many causes of injury to the spinal cord, the most common are:

The spinal cord may be bruised or severed. When a spinal cord is bruised, there will typically be less severe injury. However, if the spinal cord is severed, the injury typically causes permanent and severe losses including the loss of the ability to move parts of the body. The paralysis can affect only the lower part of the body (partial or complete paraplegia) or potentially some or all of the injured persons arms and legs (partial or complete quadriplegia).
