Los Angeles Spinal Cord Injury Attorney

Over Half a Billion Dollars Recovered for Clients

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.

If you have suffered any type of spinal cord injury, make sure you contact Biren Law Group today at (310) 896-4345 to schedule a free, no-risk consultation.

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).

Symptoms of a Spinal Cord Injury

When a traumatic accident causes a spinal cord injury that results in paraplegia or quadriplegia, these symptoms are often very unmistakable. However, other spinal injuries may be less obvious and take more time to develop before a person realizes that they have suffered something more serious. However, most spinal cord injuries do have this in common: the victim will suffer from significant pain and be unable to engage in normal, everyday activities like they used to.

Sometimes spine injuries cause unrelenting neck or back pain, but do not cause neurological deficits. Other times, the individual may start experiencing neurological deficits like a drop foot due to low back spine injury or hand dysfunction from a neck injury. If neurological symptoms develop, often surgical intervention is the only solution to prevent the problem from becoming permanent.

If you notice any of the following symptoms, make sure you get help:

  • Numbness in legs, hands, arms, or elsewhere
  • Loss of control of bladder
  • Pain or stiffness around the neck
  • Tingling sensation in limbs
  • Difficulty walking

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.


From vehicle crashed to industrial accidents, nearly any incident involving severe motion of the spine can lead to a serious injury. Whether or not you secure compensation for your spinal cord injury can rest heavily on the cause—more specifically the party who is deemed responsible. Did someone else's negligence lead to your injury? Did their recklessness or carelessness aggravate an existing condition?

Often, insurance companies will argue that a spine injury is the result of a pre-existing condition, unrelated to their policy holder's negligence or recklessness. At Biren Law Group, we have been successful in proving that negligence caused our clients' present injuries and resulting damages, regardless of even when conditions existed before. Our attorneys have obtained more than half a billion of dollars in financial compensation for spine injury victims, many of whom had pre-existing back problems.
