Pennsylvania Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer

At Cherry Injury Law our Philadelphia spinal cord injury lawyers have the experience and skill to represent clients who have suffered from serious spine injuries throughout the State of Pennsylvania.

Spinal cord injuries are among the most devastating to the victim and the victim’s family, as they frequently result in partial or complete paralysis; paraplegia (tetraplegia) and quadriplegia. Most spinal cord injuries are most often caused by trauma, with automobile accidents being the primary cause.

Approximately 11,000 people each year suffer a spinal cord injury in the U.S. and approximately 450,000 are currently living with the condition. Although the primary cause of spinal cord injuries is auto accidents (42%), many are caused by falls, violence and disease. In some cases, a spinal cord injury causes only temporary paralysis, but, unfortunately in most cases, the injury causes permanent paralysis.

Spinal cord injuries may result from numerous situations, many of which are the result of negligent behavior by others which could have been avoided. The following is a short list of trauma incidents which may cause spinal cord injuries:

  • Gun violence
  • Sporting accidents
  • Swimming or diving accidents

Spinal cord injuries can be divided into two types: complete and incomplete. A complete spinal cord injury is the loss of all functionality below the injury level. An incomplete spinal cord injury is the loss of some functionality below the injury level.

Spinal cord injuries that do not result in paralysis may cause other serious and devastating medical problems. A spinal cord injury can result in long-term physical disability requiring expensive specialists, in-home care givers, and other medical and rehabilitation treatments. If you or a loved one has suffered from a spinal cord injury, it is very important that you contact a specialized Philadelphia Spinal Cord Injury Attorney today. Our Pennsylvania personal injury law firm has recovered monetary compensation for our clients to help pay for the expenses that this type of injury can incur.
