Spinal Cord Injuries
The only thing worse than the terrifying experience of an accident is learning that a spinal cord injury may endanger your physical health and restrict your movement over the long term. Unfortunately, many auto accidents or slip and fall accidents result in severe damage to the spinal cord. Since it is one of the most delicate and vulnerable areas of the body, even minor impact can cause life-altering injuries.
The Vermont and New Hampshire personal injury lawyers at Cullenberg & Tensen, P.L.L.C. are here to help you receive the compensation you deserve for your catastrophic injury.
Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries
The spinal column contains sensitive vertebrae that protect nerves and cells that carry messages to and from the brain. Depending on where the impact occurred on the spinal cord, an injury victim can suffer a wide variety of devastating and serious physical consequences. The majority of our spinal cord injury clients were hurt in motor vehicle accidents. We also handle claims against property owners and defective product manufacturers whose negligence led to your spinal cord injury.
Spinal Cord Disabilities
Spinal cord injuries can be devastating, requiring extensive medical attention, therapy, medication, surgery, and adaptive home and lifestyle equipment. Some victims lose motor function in their limbs and other parts of the body, resulting in paralysis. Consequences of a spinal cord injury may include:
- Respiratory problems
- Chronic pain
- Sexual dysfunction
- Loss of bladder control
- Loss of coordination
Although some clients are lucky enough to experience only temporary disability, the majority of families we have helped sought compensation for a long-term condition.
