Spinal Cord Injury

spinal injury Car accidents, work related injuries, falls, assaults, and sports traumas are the leading causes of spinal injuries which affect over 10,000 people in the United States each year. Frekhtman & Associates represent victims of spinal cord injuries in New York, NY.

Spinal injuries are devastating because the victims have to deal with prolonged medical, physical therapy, and rehabilitation expenses, lost wages, and severe conscious pain and suffering.

The spinal cord is made up of nerves which transmit information between the brain and the rest of the human body. The spinal cord is covered by 33 circular bones called vertebrae which form the spinal column. Trauma to the spinal cord can fracture one or more vertebrae or dislocate one of the vertebrae moving it out of position and alignment. Trauma can also cause injury to the discs in between the vertebrae. Once spinal cord nerves are injured they do not grow back. Depending on the severity of the trauma, a spinal injury can include paralysis or loss of movement or loss of sensation.

This small law firm was very helpful and friendly. The car accident lawyers treat their clients very well. While my auto accident case was pending, the attorney kept in touch by phone or email and answered my questions. When it came time to go to court, the trial attorney was aggressive fighting for the most possible. Overall excellent.
