Chicago Spinal Cord Injury Attorney

About Spinal Cord Injuries

One of the most miraculous parts of the body is the spinal cord which resides inside and is protected by the spinal column.  The cord itself is actually a bundle of nerves which passes communication between the brain and parts of the body.  As long as the communication flows freely in both directions, a person is fully aware of physical sensations and remains in control of limbs and organ function.  When normal communication cannot flow along these nerve channels, the brain's messages and receipt of sensation is interrupted.  This is known as a spinal cord injury.  When this type of injury is caused by another's negligence, whether medical malpractice or some other cause of injury, the services of a Chicago personal injury lawyer are required. 

Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer in Chicago

Spinal cord injuries may be temporary or permanent, but even partial and temporary paralysis can affect the health and normal function of muscles and organs over the long term.  The bones in a spinal column were not designed to withstand the severe forces present in truck, auto or motorcycle accidents.  Falls resulting from defective products such as defective ladders or scaffolding can result in such severe spinal injury that the victim is unable to take care of routine daily tasks or may be confined to a wheelchair.  An experienced spinal cord injury lawyer at our firm will take action to document all evidence vital to your case and prepare a claim for compensation which includes future as well as past medical expenses, prosthetic aids and equipment, physical therapy, assisted living care, pain and suffering, and other damages related to your injuries.
