The spinal cord is the “highway” through which our brain transmits nerve impulses to our muscles. The spinal cord controls every movement of our bodies, as well as the function of our organs like the lungs and digestive tract. When the spinal cord is damaged or injured in a serious accident, it often results in debilitating pain, serious injuries and a lifetime of medical care.
A spinal cord injury can change the life of an injured person and their family forever. If you or a loved one suffered a spinal cord injury in any type of accident that was not your fault, Fellows Hymowitz Rice will fight hard to protect your rights and secure the care and treatment you and your family deserve.
Spinal cord injuries are often sustained in serious and unexpected accidents such as motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries, falls, and construction accidents. Spinal cord injuries can also be the result of medical mistakes during the birthing process. No matter how you or a loved one suffered a spinal cord injury, the results are often permanent and devastating.
A Spinal Cord Injury can cause many severe physical effects including:
- Loss of muscle control and movement, which is known as paralysis
- Loss of feeling and reflex below the point of injury
- Loss of function of natural activities such as breathing, or bowel and bladder control
- Paraplegia (paralysis of the extremities below the waist)
- Quadriplegia (paralysis of the extremities below the neck)
Treatment of a spinal cord injury often requires a lifetime of medical care, physical therapy, and mobility assistance. The medical treatment that you or your loved one require in order to ensure the best possible quality of life can be mentally exhausting and extraordinarily expensive. That is why you need an experienced, dedicated legal team by your side to ensure that your rights are protected.
