Spinal Cord Injuries

Have You Suffered a Spinal Cord Injury?

One of the most painful and devastating types of injuries involves damage to the spinal cord, which provides support to the entire body and a pathway for the nervous system. Spinal cord injuries can be caused by accidents, falls, violent assault, diving, sports, electric shock and even medical malpractice.

A spinal cord injury can result in anything from chronic pain to full or partial paralysis, significantly impairing the quality of life for people who have suffered them. Additional symptoms such as pain or sensitivity to stimuli, muscle spasms, bowel and bladder problems and sexual dysfunction may also develop. Spinal cord injury patients are also prone to developing secondary medical problems, such as bladder infections, lung infections and bed sores. Special equipment accommodations may become necessary for day-today living.

If you or a loved one has become the victim of a spinal cord injury, timing is critical, expert investigation is necessary and a thorough understanding of the nature of the injury is paramount to getting a good result. If negligence on the part of a medical professional or someone else (such as a driver in an accident or an employer who fails to provide proper precautions) has occurred, the skilled lawyers at Gerling Law will work hard to prove it and to win you and your family fair compensation you deserve.
