New Orleans Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers
Spinal cord injuries can be devastating, causing symptoms that range from severe chronic pain to complete paralysis and loss of sensation. Whether they are in the neck or the back, spinal injuries can permanently change a person’s life.
The lawyers at Rome, Arata, Baxley & Stelly, LLC, have experience with catastrophic injury claims, including spinal cord injuries. We represent injury victims and their families in personal injury and wrongful death suits. The cost of the medical care alone is more than most people can afford. Additional costs such as the loss of income and benefits, medical equipment, and modifications to your home and vehicles make the situation unmanageable without significant compensation. We will aggressively pursue the compensation you need from the negligent party.
Accidents And Paralysis
Approximately 40 percent of spinal cord injuries are the result of vehicle accidents. Another 20 percent are caused by falls. Our New Orleans spinal cord injury attorneys can assist you with spinal injuries caused by many types of accidents, including:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Premises liability accidents (slip-and-fall accidents)
- Maritime accidents
- Railroad accidents
Paralysis can occur when vertebrae compress, pinch or tear the spinal nerves or sever the spinal cord. If the spinal cord cannot send signals below the level of injury on the spine, paralysis will occur below that level. This is called a complete spinal injury. An incomplete injury happens when some messages can get through and the person retains some function and sensation below the injury. Paralysis can be temporary or permanent.
