Experienced Spinal Injury Representation
The National Spinal Cord Injury Association says that there are more than 250,000 people in the U.S. living with some kind of spinal cord injury. There are many others that are living with other kinds of spinal injury.
At Patterson Dahlberg Injury lawyers, we don’t want you to have to suffer the financial consequences of an accident that you didn’t cause. We have helped clients recover millions of dollars in compensation that helps them focus on their recovery and not the financial stresses. Here are the different types of spinal injuries we have experience with:
- Compression fracture
- Burst fracture
- Herniated disc
- Soft tissue injuries
- Facet joint injuries
- Spinal stenosis
- Back injury
The treatments for spinal injuries include spinal fusion for herniated discs, radiofrequency neurotomy for facet joint injuries, and laminectomy for spinal stenosis. These treatments are extensive and they can be very expensive. In fact, an individual may have to undergo lifelong medical treatments.
Compensation That You Deserve
Spinal injuries tend to be caused by auto accidents, falls, and sports injuries. The most common of these is the automobile accident. These accidents are responsible for thousands of spinal injuries every year. The most common spinal injuries associated with auto accidents include whiplash, paralysis, and vertebrae fractures.
While something like whiplash is usually considered a very minor injury, it can cause debilitating pain for years before it is under control. So regardless of how minor or severe the injury, anything that causes you pain and causes you to have to be responsible for medical expenses that you did not have a hand in causing is something that you should pursue the responsible party over. That way you can focus on your physical healing and not the financial aspect of the matter.
