Spinal Cord Injury Attorney
Beaumont, Orange, Port Arthur, Atascocita, Baytown, Pasadena Personal Injury Lawyer
Over 10,000 people a year suffer a spinal cord injury. Spinal cord injury refers to any injury of the nerves within the spinal canal. Almost half of spinal cord injuries occur as a result of car accidents, while others occur as a result of sports injuries, violence, or even just a slip and fall.
A spinal cord injury can completely block every signal coming from the brain to other body parts below the injury, or merely obstruct some signals.
Some spinal cord injuries are so severe that they cause paralysis. Paralysis is the loss or impairment of ability to move or feel part of the body. A paraplegic is an individual paralyzed from the chest or waist down, while a quadriplegic is unable to operate his feet as well as his arms.
Spinal cord injuries and paralysis can lead to a lifetime of medical expenses that include treatment, rehabilitation, and assistance. Very few people can afford this and insurance companies will often limit the amount of assistance. A Beaumont spinal cord injury attorney can help you get the compensation you deserve.
