Symptoms Aren't Always As Obvious As Paralysis, Paraplegia Or Quadriplegia
You may not notice immediate symptoms of a spinal cord injury following an accident. Some neurological damage may even result in symptoms that don't seem connected to a neck or spine injury. If you are starting to experience any unusual symptoms following a fall or accident, seek medical help immediately.
Some symptoms to watch for include:
- Tingling and pain along spinal column
- Lower back pain
- Shoulder and upper back pain
- Loss of feeling in legs, arms, hands, feet, fingers and toes
- Difficulty in walking and maintaining balance
- Hip, legs, feet and buttocks pain
Assessing The Causes Of Your Injuries
Any kind of neck or spinal cord injury can potentially cause temporary or partial paralysis or paraplegia. Even a minor crack in a vertebrae can cause a herniated disk, leading to severe pain and immobility. Some symptoms may not become fully apparent until sometime after the accident.
Because neck and spine injury claims are complex, our firm frequently works with neurological experts and life care professionals and economists to demonstrate the full impact of the damages on the victim and the family. We advance the cost for all investigation and the preparation of your case. You pay attorneys fees only if we recover compensation for you.
If you have suffered a back, neck or spine injury in a car accident, slip and fall or other accident caused by someone else's negligence, that person may be held liable for your pain, suffering, medical expenses, lost earnings and future care and treatment.
