Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer
Spinal cord injuries are a devastating type of catastrophic injury that can result from a wide variety of accidents. Commonly, spinal cord injuries are sustained in car accidents due to whiplash, but they also often occur in other circumstances, such as construction accidents and slip-and-fall accidents.
If you have suffered a spinal cord injury in New Jersey or Pennsylvania because of another party’s negligence or wrongdoing, the aggressive personal injury lawyers in Philadelphia at Wapner, Newman, Wigrizer, Brecher & Miller are prepared to help you and your family pursue the full amount of compensation you deserve.
Consequences of a Spinal Cord Injury
The extent and location of your spinal cord injury will determine its severity. Your spine is divided into four sections: the cervical spine at the top, thoracic spine in the center, and the lumbar and sacral portions on the bottom.
Each section of your spine contains millions of nerves that send impulses to your body, regulating activities as diverse as movement and cognitive function. When these nerves are damaged, a range of serious consequences can result, including:
- Brain damage
- Breathing difficulties
- Loss of bladder function
- Loss of sexual function
To determine the amount of compensation you are entitled to, our experienced spinal cord injury lawyers in New Jersey and Pennsylvania will need to assess the full impact your injury has had on your life. This may include medical expenses, your inability to work, emotional damages, and pain and suffering. The amount we seek in your case will be based on your personal financial needs, and the total scope of the impact your injury has had on you and your family.
