Spinal Cord Injuries

Insight from Los Angeles Injury Lawyers

The spine is a complex and delicate part of the human anatomy. When injuries occur to the spinal cord, it can result in devastating symptoms and health consequences for the victim. A spine injury can permanently change the victim's life. Constant neck or back pain can be debilitating, preventing the victim from participating in their normal work and social activities. In more serious cases, paralysis may occur, creating serious debilitation, loss of enjoyment of life, and heavy medical costs.

Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries have many causes and occur in a great many contexts, including:

  • Vehicle accidents
  • Workplace accidents
  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Recreational accidents (sports, outdoor activities, etc.)

What all of these circumstances have in common is sudden movement of the spine, compression of the spine, or a blunt force directly to the spine. The injury may take place near the neck (cervical spinal cord injury), in the lower back (lumbar spinal cord injury) or more rarely to the mid back areas (thoracic spinal cord injury).

Treatment for Spinal Cord Injuries

If you have suffered a serious spinal cord injury, you most likely began your treatment in a hospital emergency room; possibly even in emergency surgery to fuse vertebrae and stabilize your back and/or neck. Treatment options will commonly vary tremendously depending on the type of spine injury you have sustained.

If your injury is not acute, you will likely go through a course of conservative care:

  • Non-inflammatory and pain medication
  • Physical therapy
  • Epidural injections
  • Tens machine
  • Bio-Feedback
  • Acupuncture
  • Nerve ablation

In more severe cases, prompt surgery is mandatory so that the nerves will not be permanently damaged. In other cases, surgery is a lifestyle decision. If a person feels that their pain and disability will greatly interfere with their normal life activities, they may decide to pursue this option. When spinal cord injuries become extremely disruptive, more extreme medical measures may be required.

Pursuing the Maximum Compensation

At Biren Law Group, our Los Angeles spinal cord injury lawyers do this through a combination of working with the best spine surgeons in Southern California and using compelling testimony to establish the plaintiff's need for compensation. We persuade and convince the jury to understand your pain and suffering, even if there are no diagnostic tests or other evidence. We do this through a three-step approach:

  1. Bring in respected medical experts who examine the client, review their medical history, and explain to the jury how the accident was responsible for the injury.
  2. Ask the treating doctor to explain our client's condition and how it affects their daily life, as well as to outline the future medical care that the patient will require.
  3. Present testimony from our client's friends, acquaintances and co-workers who can describe how the person behaved before and after the injury.

We have won significant verdicts and settlements for injury victims based on the honest observations of those who know the victim best. We work with our clients to ensure their story is told fairly and the devastating effects of their injury presented accurately.
