The Law is Clear

When an injury is caused by the negligence or carelessness of another, the law is clear. The victim is entitled to compensation from the liable party. We know that money can never make up for the emotional and physical pain of an accident. But it can help ease the financial burdens of hospitalization, treatment and loss of income.

Traumatic Brain Injuries

Caused by a blow, jolt or penetrating trauma to the head, traumatic brain injuries can be the result of many different types of accidents. The most common causes are motor vehicle accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip and fall accidents, sports injuries and assaults.

During impact, the brain will hit the inside of the skull causing bruising, bleeding and tearing of the nerve fibers. At first, a victim may appear fine but conditions can decline rapidly. The brain may undergo a delayed trauma, swelling and pushing against the skull and reducing the flow of blood.

Spinal Cord Injuries

A spinal cord injury is any damage to part of the spinal cord or the nerves at the end of the spinal canal. These can cause changes in strength, sensation and functioning to areas below the site of the injury.

Many spinal cord injuries can have life-altering consequences for a victim. Spinal cord injury victims are frequently faced with tremendous medical and rehabilitation expenses throughout their lives and a loss of the life that they had previously known.

Spinal cord injuries can cause

  • A total or partial loss of movement
  • A total or partial loss of sensations
  • Loss of bowel or bladder control
  • Exaggerated reflexes or spasms
  • Changes in sexual function, sensitivity or fertility
  • Pain and stinging sensations due to damage of nerve fibers
  • Difficulty breathing, coughing
  • Difficulty clearing lung secretions
