Birmingham Spinal Cord Injury Attorney
Representing the Catastrophically Injured in Alabama Since 1890
An injury to the spinal cord is one of the most devastating injuries a person can face. As the housing for the body’s complex network of nerves, the spinal cord is essential to a person’s mobility, ability to feel sensations, and more. A blow to or severing of the spine can cause permanent loss of strength and bodily function below the site of the injury. Paralysis, including paraplegia and quadriplegia, can make the victim susceptible to a host of adverse medical events, including infection, frequent illness, pressure sores, breathing difficulties, incontinence, and more. These can severely diminish the quality of a person’s life, preventing them from doing the things they once loved and leaving them reliant on a lifetime of specialized medical care.

Is There a Cure for Spinal Cord Injuries?
Unfortunately, there is currently no cure for spinal cord injuries. Patients with spinal cord injuries are often left in need of specialized care for the rest of their lives, which can amount to several hundreds of thousands of dollars when you factor in hospital bills, prescription drug costs, costs of home caregivers and home accessibility modifications, and more.

It is important to consult a qualified personal injury attorney as soon as possible to hold the responsible party or parties liable. Whether the injury was caused by a preventable accident or an intentional act, our team will ensure that whoever was responsible is brought to justice.
