Causes of Serious Spine Injuries

In our day-to-day lives, we all need to be careful to avoid accidents and injuries. From driving through traffic sensibly to following all safety protocols at work, diligence and responsibility are key to keeping everyone safe. It is when people act neglectfully or recklessly that other are harmed unfairly, and that serious spinal cord injuries occur.

Situations and accidents that can cause a spine injury include:

Symptoms of Spine Injuries, Slight or Severe

Even though our spinal cords are a bundle of nerves, they can be deceptively numb to pain or injuries. Sometimes you might only feel a mild tingle and think nothing of it but, in reality, you have suffered serious harm that is worsening over time. If you have been in any sort of accident recently and feel any of the following symptoms, you might have a spinal cord injury that requires medical attention. Please do not hesitate to contact your physician to learn what you can do for treatment.

Symptoms of spine injuries ranging from mild to severe include:

  • Tingling or numbness in digits
  • Difficulty controlling extremity
  • Waves of nausea
  • Pain when sitting or lying down
  • Loss of balance or coordination
  • Insomnia
  • Paralysis

We Offer Contingency Fee Agreements

The cost of your medical treatments after you have suffered a spinal cord injury are likely to be quite steep, and your insurance might only pay for some of it. Our Lafayette personal injury lawyer, Mr. Duck, does not want to put you through any more hardship than you have already experienced. To this end, we offer contingency fee agreements to our personal injury, which allow you to retain our services for nothing upfront; we will only get paid if we get you a settlement, that’s how confident we are that we can win your case!
