Spinal Cord Injuries
More than 11,000 people suffer spinal cord injuries each year in the United States. Many victims will experience severe chronic pain, paralysis and even death.
Sudden trauma, such as a sudden blow or impact to the spine, may result in spinal injury, such as fractured or dislocated vertebrae. Most spinal cord injuries occur as a result of car accidents, which account for almost 47% of all such injuries. Fall downs (23%), violence (14 %) and sports (9%) also result in injuries.
If the injury was caused due to the fault of driver of a car or truck, the manufacturer of a defective product or the owner of a neglected or hazardous property, the victim may have an important legal claim. If you have been injured due to a defective product or have experienced a car accident, fall down or work related spinal injury, speak to a knowledgeable attorney right away.
