Spinal Injuries

A spinal injury can occur in a wide range of accidents. It can cause progressive damage to your health and ability to function if not properly treated.

Personal Injury Attorney With More Than 35 Years' Experience

If you believe you are suffering from a major or minor spinal injury, it is very important to consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer. I have handled hundreds of personal injury cases, many of which involved back injuries, neck injuries and spinal cord injuries.

Before becoming a plaintiff's personal injury attorney, I represented insurance companies in personal injury claims. This experience gave me a firsthand look at what insurance companies expect before they will settle a claim. As a result, I develop persuasive insurance claims. I will work with investigators and accident scene witnesses to document the evidence demonstrating your claim. I will consult with medical experts to determine the type of injuries and the extent of damages caused by the accident.

Seek Medical Attention Immediately

A spinal cord injury can result from a ruptured disk in your spine or instability between segments of your spine that threaten to damage nerves coming from the spinal cord. Spinal cord injuries can be life-threatening and should be treated immediately.

Unfortunately, accident victims often think they merely have a sore muscle. An actual spinal cord injury, whether resulting from a disk injury, abnormal twisting or bending of the spine, or a fracture of the bones surrounding the spinal cord, should be treated immediately at the nearest trauma center. If you are experiencing any of the symptoms below, you need to be examined by a neurosurgeon.

  • Pain in the spine or extremities
  • Paralysis
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Inability to move body parts
  • Difficulty voiding bladder or bowels
  • Progressive sensory changes

As your personal injury attorney, I can assist you in identifying physicians who treat injured people.
