Spinal Cord Injury Legal Cases
Spinal cord injuries are extremely serious and often debilitating. Many people who are involved in an accident resulting in such injuries suffer paralysis as a result of the physical trauma they have endured. Paralysis can occur in an incomplete manner, meaning that an injured person maintains some sensation and movement ability, while complete paralysis results in an almost total loss of sensory perception and movement.
At Zimmerman & Frachtman, we understand how life-altering a spinal cord injury can be for the hurt individual and their family. Victims of auto accidents, falls or other cases of negligence that have resulted in paralysis should know that there is help available. Our compassionate staff and experienced spinal injury attorneys are always available for consultations to educate spinal cord injury victims upon their legal case and options.
Options for Victims of Spinal Cord Injuries
Unfortunately, there are currently no medical treatments that can reverse damage to the delicate spinal cord. However, the medical field is always making advancements in nerve therapy, prosthetic techniques and physical therapy that can help spinal cord injury patients live the fullest and richest life possible.
Victims of spinal cord injuries require continuing medical care, so it is important for those who have been injured to take legal action against the party responsible for the accident. Patients who suffer from spinal cord injuries often develop related medical conditions, such as muscle atrophy, blood clots and incontinence issues. It’s vital that victims be compensated not only for the lifelong course of treatment they require to carry on, but also for all that they have lost due to their spinal cord injury.
