Spinal injuries can range from slipped or herniated discs to spinal cord damage resulting in paralysis. There are few injuries more debilitating or more costly to the victim. If you or a loved one has suffered a spinal injury, you should discuss your case with an experienced attorney.
At The Umansky Law Firm, our lawyers represent people who have suffered spinal injuries in motor vehicle accidents, construction site accidents and other situations caused by another person's negligence.
A spinal injury can change forever how you live your life. Our attorneys will work hard to help you obtain the money you need to pay medical bills, replace lost wages and compensate you for everything you have lost due to the injury.
Slipped, Herniated and Desiccated Discs
The discs are the shock-absorbing pads between your vertebrae, which protect the spinal cord. If a disc splits, ruptures or leaks fluid, it can impinge on the spinal cord, causing severe pain, numbness and other symptoms.
An injured disc can make it impossible for you to work or do the things you enjoy. You may need surgery (or multiple surgeries) and extensive physical therapy before you attain maximum physical recovery.
Spinal Cord Injuries Leading to Paralysis
An injury to the spinal cord usually results in a degree of paralysis. The extent of the paralysis will depend on the level of the spinal cord where the injury occurred:
- Damage to the neck area can result in quadriplegia, which is paralysis in all four limbs.
- Damage in the chest area of the back may result in paralysis of both legs and loss of control of the rectum and bladder.
- Damage to a lower area of the spine may result in paralysis of the legs only
Our Orlando spinal cord injury lawyers will work with your medical providers as well as economists, rehabilitation experts, and certified life care planners to document the full extent of the damages you have suffered. We will work to achieve the maximum possible recovery for all of your damages, including current and future lost wages, your need for continuing medical care, physical and vocational rehabilitation, and help with the tasks of daily living.
