Spinal cord injuries (SCIs) can occur during a car crash, workplace accident, a slip and fall, or while playing sports. Some SCIs result in minor back pain for a few months while others result in permanent paralysis. The spine is a delicate part of the body we must strive to protect.
If you’ve suffered from an SCI, your ability to work and maintain a living is temporarily and potentially permanently limited due to the injury. That’s why we have passionate legal minds with experience building cases for the most serious of spinal cord injuries.
The spine contains a delicate bundle of nerves, responsible for relaying messages from the brain to the body. Any level of spinal cord damage can result in significant pain and lifelong back problems. The damage is more than physical as the mental anguish and psychological impact of a serious paralyzing injury is responsible for long-term damages to one’s overall level of well–being.

According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Database, nearly 70% of all spinal cord injuries are caused by motor vehicle accidents and slip-and-fall incidents. In the majority of all of those cases, negligence on the part of the driver or property owner significantly contributes to the injury.
It’s believed that nearly 200,000 people are victims of spinal cord injuries in any given year. These injuries risk serious and potentially permanent disability that diminishes a victim’s quality of life.
