Few accidental injuries are so traumatic both emotionally and physically as those to the spinal cord. At Singh Barristers, we understand that no amount of monetary compensation in itself can return the use of central nervous system functions that are lost with these devastating injuries. We can, and will, do all we can to help you rebuild what you can after the tremendous losses and damages that trauma to the spinal cord can cause.
Spinal cord damage causes physical trauma ranging from losses of feeling and function to complete or partial loss of mobility resulting in paraplegic or quadriplegic paralysis. These injuries most often result from automobile, slip-and-fall, gunshot, assault, and sports-related injuries. Quadriplegia/tetraplegia paralysis occurs with injury to the cervical (neck) region, paraplegia results from trauma to the back’s thoracic, lumbar, or sacral regions. A broken back or broken neck doesn’t necessarily result in paralysis, in cases in which vertebrae are fractured or dislocated without damaging the spinal cord. Spinal injuries – known as “lesions” – fall into two key groups:
- COMPLETE SPINAL CORD INJURIES
The spine is complete paralyzed below the lesion
- INCOMPLETE SPINAL CORD INJURIES
The victim suffers only partial spinal cord damage, potentially leaving them loss of movement or sensation below the lesion
These severe injuries can leave significant lasting physical, emotional and financial trauma. If you or a loved one has suffered a spinal cord injury, contact Singh Barristers immediately. As a firm specializing in personal injury litigation, our trial counsel has tried hundreds of jury and non-jury cases with the assistance of our trusted medical consultants verifying the extent of our clients’ injuries. The cash settlement we’ll fight to secure on your behalf can’t in itself return your sensation or mobility, but it could assist in offsetting the expense and ongoing adjustment of job re-training, home modifications to accommodate your reduced functions, and ongoing loss of income.
Please, contact us today. Your initial consultation is free-of-charge, and you won’t owe us a fee until your case has been concluded.
