Spinal Cord Injury Attorneys in New York
A spinal cord injury is damage to the tight bundle of cells and nerves that send and receive signals from the brain to and from the rest of the body.
This injury can be caused by direct injury to the spinal cord, or from damage to the tissue and vertebrae surrounding that area. Spinal cord injuries often occur due to preventable causes, such as in a vehicle accident (car, truck, motorcycle, etc.), on construction sites, in relation to a slip and fall, or due to athletic injury.
Certain injuries, such as whiplash, can be temporary. Other SCIs, such as cervical disc herniations and lumbar disc herniations can persist for a greater period of time. In the most serious instances, spinal cord injuries can lead to paralyzation.
