Back and Spinal Cord Injury Lawsuit Lawyer
Every muscle, vital organ and limb in the body requires the nervous system to function. The majority of the body is controlled by nerves that stem from the spinal cord, providing sensation, movement and involuntary function. When negligence causes permanent or substantial injury to the spine, you need an experienced back and spinal cord injury lawsuit lawyer like Keith D. Leshine Attorney at Law, LLC to fight your case.
Back and spinal cord injuries can occur in a variety of accidents. Most common are high-impact accidents that can damage or crush the spine. Some of the most notable causes of accidental spinal cord or severe back injuries include:
- Vehicle or motorcycle accidents
- Sports injuries
- Surgical errors
- Crushing accidents
The spine, back and spinal cord are a complex network of muscles, ligaments, nerves and bone. Not all injuries can be repaired, especially if the spinal cord or nerves are extensively damaged. If the spinal cord is cut or the spine components are crushed, it can result in a permanent and catastrophic disability.
Disability Caused by Spine Injuries
Any permanent injury to the nerve roots or spinal cord can cause pain and loss of function in the body. A severed or crushed spinal cord can cause permanent paralysis to the body below where the injury occurred. Neck spinal cord injuries can result in the loss of the use of both the arms and the legs, or quadriplegia. Back and spinal cord injuries can cause paraplegia, or loss of the use of the legs. In addition, nerve or spinal cord damage can impact bladder, bowels and other organ function, including the reproductive system.
When a catastrophic injury accident results in spinal cord or back injuries, it can cause a permanent disability. The medical costs can be astronomical, and long-term care may be needed. If negligent actions caused the accident, it is important that victims and their families seek financial restitution through a back and spinal cord injury lawsuit.
