The Effects of Spinal Trauma
Spinal injuries are most often caused by a trauma to one or more spinal discs or nerves. This may include herniated, ruptured, compressed or fractured vertebrae as well as severed nerves. Problems with the neck and back are usually spinal injuries, although some soft tissue injuries can also cause debilitating pain or reduced range of motion.
Injuries to the spine frequently cause problems with other parts of the body, especially the extremities. It is not unusual for spinal pain to cause numbness, weakness or pain in the arms and legs. The unceasing nature of spinal pain can prevent a person from sitting or standing in one position for more than a few minutes.
In the most severe cases, a spinal injury can result in paralysis, paraplegia or quadriplegia. With these types of catastrophic injuries, respiratory, bowel and other bodily functions may also be affected.
Through the use of medical experts, financial experts and life-care planners, we will determine the need for immediate medical care and future long-term treatment. These experts can also testify about the likelihood of returning to work or being able to care for oneself.
Whether your injury was the result of a car or Truck Accident, a Construction Accident or a Slip-and-Fall, you have a right to compensation. To make an appointment with our Philadelphia neck injury attorneys, please call one of our offices or Contact Us online. Your consultation is free.
