Spinal cord injury (SCI) can occur when a traumatic force tears or bruises the spinal cord. Severe SCIs result in loss of feeling and functionality of the limbs, and in some cases, severe respiratory problems. The most serious SCIs may lead to paralysis, including paraplegia, which affects the lower extremities, and quadriplegia or tetraplegia, which affects all four limbs and the chest, neck, and head. SCIs require a lifetime of care and treatment, which many families cannot afford. Our attorneys can help you obtain the compensation you need to pay for these costs.
