One of the most devastating personal injuries that a person can suffer is an injury to the spinal column. These types of injuries come with dire consequences. Spinal cord injuries can damage the body’s ability to transmit motor signals to the brain, which can cause the loss of both involuntary and voluntary bodily functions.
Permanent damage such as paralysis or life-threatening injuries can result from back or neck injuries or an accident. If you or someone you love has suffered an injury to the spine, call now for legal assistance from one of our spinal cord injury attorneys.
Symptoms of a Spinal Injury
