New York Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer
Approximately 11,000 people sustain a spinal cord injury every year in America. One of the main causes is trauma such as a sudden impact to the spine that results in a fracture, herniated disc, or other spinal injury. Car accidents cause the greatest percentage of spinal cord injuries – nearly 50% of all spinal cord injuries are as a result of automobile, truck, bus, or motorcycle accidents. Falls including falls from a height, slip or trip and fall incidents, and other premises type accidents account for 23% of spinal cord injuries.
If a spinal cord injury was caused due to the negligence or fault of someone else such as the case with car accidents, trip and falls, construction accidents, or other accidents, it is important to contact an attorney immediately. The failure to use reasonable or ordinary care is negligence. If you or a loved one suffered a spinal cord injury as a result of someone else’s negligence, an attorney can help obtain compensation for pain and suffering, medical costs, and loss of earnings among other damages.
