Spinal Cord Injuries
If you or a family member has suffered a spinal cord injury and need a lawyer...turn to Kimmel Carter.
A traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI) can be caused by a sudden blow to the spine, resulting in fracture, dislocation, or compression of the vertebrae. SCI can also be caused by a gunshot or knife wound that severs the spinal cord.
Most SCIs cause permanent disability or paralysis below the site of injury. SCI sufferers can also experience pain, sensitivity to stimuli, muscle spasms, and sexual dysfunction. Additional damage commonly occurs with the passage of time due to swelling, bleeding, inflammation, and fluid accumulation.
Common causes of SCI include:
- Automobile accidents
- Acts of violence, such as gunshot and stab wounds
- Sports and recreational accidents
- Electric shock
If your SCI was caused by the negligent acts of another person, you may be entitled to a financial judgment against the responsible party. Kimmel Carter understands the complexities involved in a SCI case. We are experienced in assisting victims of tragic injuries to get appropriate compensation. Our goal is for our clients to focus on recovery, without the constant worry for their financial wellbeing.
