Spinal Cord Injuries

St. Petersburg Spinal Cord Injuries Lawyer

Tenacious Legal Representation for Injury Survivors in Florida

A spinal cord injury is the one the most devastating injuries you can sustain in any type of accident. It involves the severing or damage to the spinal cord and/or its nerves which can then lead to serious disability below the affected area, such as paralysis and loss of organ control.

As such, these injuries involve an extremely high cost in terms of the financial, physical, and psychological toll they take on victims and their families. While some injury survivors may recover some sensation after being injured depending on the amount of damage done, these injuries are basically incurable.

Spinal Cord Injury Cases in Florida

Spinal cord injuries generally involve some type of blunt force blow to the spinal cord from the back of the neck downward to the end of the spine. These injuries lead to a spinal cord that has been bruised, fractured, or severed. As a result, the areas of the body below the damaged site will suffer loss of function and sensation.

These injuries commonly lead to paralysis of the body from the affected area downward, such as paraplegia (paralysis below the chest) and quadriplegia (paralysis below the neck).

These injuries can also result in the following physical problems and disabilities:

  • Loss of bowel and bladder control
  • Loss of sexual function
  • Loss of involuntary functions, such as the ability to breath, ability to regulate blood pressure, body temperature, and more
  • Respiratory problems that can lead to pneumonia or other infections
  • Muscular weakness, spasms, and atrophy
  • Reduced life expectancy

The most common cause of spinal cord injuries are car, truck, motorcycle, bicycle, and pedestrian traffic accidents, sporting event and recreational accidents, and construction site accidents.

When these types of accidents have been caused by negligence, lack of adherence to safety obligations, or some other type of wrongdoing, the at-fault party or parties can be held liable for their actions or omissions through legal claims. Such parties can include individuals, companies, or even governmental entities.
