Spinal Cord Injuries and Claims

Long Island Personal Injury Lawyer

Spinal cord injuries are some of the few types of injuries that continue to baffle medical science. A full resolution to a severe spinal cord injury has not yet been discovered, although progress is being made. Many highly skilled surgeons and researchers continue to seek out a way to resolve these terrible injuries.

When the spinal cord is severely bruised, the injured may recover over time but could suffer ongoing pains and difficulties such as numbness and lack of ability to correctly control their extremities. In cases in which the injury was so devastating that the spinal cord was severed, the individual will suffer from paralysis from the point at which the cord was permanently damaged. The challenges the victim will face throughout the remainder of the lives are very difficult.
