Manhattan Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers

Manhattan Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers

The Manhattan spinal cord injury lawyers at the F&A injury law firm specialize in litigating these serious life changing injury cases from client intake to jury trial. A spinal cord injury is a catastrophic trauma that can relegate a healthy individual to a wheelchair. The spinal cord is made up of the spinal column and intervertebral discs. Each disc has a nucleus containing disc material surrounded by numerous walls. The entire spinal cord is surrounded by nerve roots.

Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries

Various types of spinal trauma can lead to disc protrusions, a severed spinal cord, disc injuries, vertebral injuries, and other types of spinal maladies. Each year more than eight thousand new spinal cord injuries are medically diagnosed. More than eighty percent of new spinal cord injuries are found in men under thirty. Nearly half a million people in the United States live with spinal cord injuries. Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries include car accidents, motorcycle crashes, pedestrian knockdown accidents, falls, and sports related injuries.

Damage to the spinal cord can cause loss of sensation and movement either partial or total. Injuries to the network of nerves that runs through the spinal column can lead to quadriplegia, paraplegia, and other life altering conditions. Partial paralysis known as paraparesis (lower extremities) or quadriparesis (all four extremities) is another serious type of spinal cord injury.

Damages recoverable after a spinal cord injury

While a spinal cord injury can occur due to various types of accidents, the important thing to remember when litigating this type of action is to build a damages case to prove the full extent of the spinal injury to the jury at trial. Damages recoverable after a spinal cord injury may include

  • conscious pain & suffering
