Spinal Cord Injuries

A spinal cord injury can be life-altering, affecting your ability to move, walk and breathe. Treatment options may include surgery, ongoing home care, rehabilitation, and costly equipment. The expense for this type of specialized care is often debilitating. While no amount of money can compensate you and your loved ones for the trauma you have experienced, a financial settlement or award can help pay for the high-quality care you deserve. The attorneys at Jacoby and Meyers have helped countless spinal cord injury victims and their families in the New York City area obtain the compensation they need to pay for ongoing medical treatments.

The Devastating Effects of Spinal Cord Injuries

A spinal cord injury involves damage to the spinal cord cells or nerves that carry messages to and from the brain. They are typically caused by a sudden blow to the spine that results in fractured or dislocated vertebrae. Some injuries sever the spinal cord completely, resulting in paralysis:

Paraparesis – partial paralysis of the lower extremities
Quadriparesis – partial paralysis of all four extremities
Paraplegia – complete paralysis of the lower extremities and typically the torso
Quadriplegia – complete paralysis of all four extremities

Severe spinal cord injuries also often create respiratory complications, requiring breathing aids and respiratory support. Other spinal cord injury consequences include permanent disability, loss of sensation or reflexes and inability to control the bowel and bladder.
