While these injuries can occur during common activities, such as sports or car accidents, you can also injury your spinal cord during falls or as a result of violence. Many spinal cord accidents result in paralysis or paraplegia. As a victim of a spinal cord accident injury, your life is forever changed; only 40% of paraplegics are able to return to their normal lives and jobs following the accident.

In addition to the pain, suffering, and frustration, the financial strain can be suffocating – both for the victim and the victim’s family. If you are the victim of a spinal cord injury accident or a loved one was killed by a spinal cord injury, you need to contact a personal injury attorney that understands the emotional and physical toll that this act took on the family. The attorney should be aggressive in seeking the compensation that you deserve.
