This may be a difficult question to face in the wake of a serious spinal cord injury. Were you injured by a careless driver on Tampa-area roads? Did you suffer a slip and fall accident caused by a property owner who failed to maintain safe conditions?

In order to help you obtain compensation for your spinal cord injury, we must first determine the nature of the accident and how negligence played a role in causing the injury you now suffer from.

As Florida’s premiere injury law firm, we have the resources to thoroughly investigate the causes of spinal cord injuries, and the tenacity to fight for every dollar our clients deserve.

How Has This Injury Affected Your Life?

The spinal cord is the main conduit through which the brain communicates with the rest of the body. An injury to the spinal cord disrupts this messaging system, leaving victims with a broad range of potentially debilitating conditions.

Some of the effects of spinal cord injuries include:

  • Impaired mobility: People who have suffered injuries to the spinal column often experience loss of sensation, muscle weakness, or even paralysis in their lower extremities. This can make it difficult, if not impossible, to walk and may necessitate braces, crutches, a wheelchair or other adaptive devices.
  • Disruptions of normal bodily functions: A healthy spinal cord is necessary for a wide range of bodily functions we normally take for granted, including blood pressure, sexual activity, temperature regulation, and bowel and bladder functioning. A severe injury to the spinal cord can disrupt these processes.
  • Pain: Spinal cord injury victims may experience severe pain. Depending upon the nature and location of the injury, this may prevent them from standing, sitting, kneeling, stooping, or performing other functions that are necessary to most jobs and everyday activities.

In handling your injury claim, an experienced catastrophic injury lawyer at our firm will work with you closely so that we can fully understand the way this injury has impacted your life. This thorough and personal approach allows us to pursue an amount of compensation that addresses all of the needs and hardships you have experienced due to the careless or negligent actions of another.
