Philadelphia Spinal Cord Injury Attorney
Spinal Cord Injuries are specific injuries that emanate from the cord that carries your spinal fluid and nerve pathways. An injury to the cord can have life altering effects upon you (the victim) and in most cases, your family, friends and loved ones. The effects of a spinal cord injury are permanent. Think of Christopher Reeves (the actor that played superman in the 70's). He fell from a horse, and he never walked again. This is because he suffered a spinal cord injury. Anyone can injure their spinal cord. Here are some of the ways we see most of these injuries:
· Fall from a height
· Sports injury

A person, who is an injured victim at the hands of another, whether that other is a person or a company, deserves to hold that person or company responsible for the damages that result. The victim or victims (family and friends) often lose everything. This includes their job, their self esteem or feelings of self worth, and in a lot of cases, their spouse divorces them. In other cases, the victims lose their property such as their home and car. The damages that we fight for are specific for each individual case. The damages that we fight for include but are not the following:
· The pain and suffering from the incident
· Future pain and suffering
· Loss of life's pleasures or quality of life
· All financial losses from the point of the incident to present
· Future loss of income
· Future loss of income capacity
· Mental anguish
· Future expenses that you need for the remainder of your life
Many times, a Spinal Cord Injury can cause the victim to become profoundly depressed. This depression is usually caused by the pain and losses that the victim suffered. This focus by the depressed victim causes more pain which in turn, causes a deeper depression. This is what we call a vicious cycle. It is important to break this chain. Many of the victims we see enroll in significant counseling to help them cope with the sudden change in their life, both physically and mentally. Therefore, it is important that this cycle is identified by the attorney and dealt with in order to break this viscous cycle. In some cases, we assist in obtaining social security disability. If you or a loved one was injured and the injuries are profound, call us now. The consultation is free and our attorneys and staff are well trained to help.
