If you or a loved one has recently experienced a spinal cord injury, it may seem like every aspect of your life has been affected, from your ability to work to your emotional well-being. For many accident victims, years of medical treatment and rehabilitation are necessary to lead productive, independent lives after sustaining a spinal cord injury. When spinal cord injuries are caused by the negligence, recklessness, or wrongdoing of another, you should not have to bear the cost of recovery on your own. Payer & Associates spinal cord injury lawyers have the skill, experience, and resources to help victims of spinal cord injuries obtain maximum compensation for all the current and future damages their injury involves.
Types of Cases We Handle Involving Spinal Cord Injuries
A spinal cord injury involves damage to any part of the spinal cord as well as nerves at the tail end of the spinal canal, causing permanent changes in mobility, feeling, and other bodily functions below the site of the injury. After sustaining a spinal cord injury, the ability to control one’s limbs depends on the place of the injury along the spinal cord and the severity of injury to the spinal cord. Spinal cord injuries of any kind may result in loss of movement, loss or altered skin sensation, loss of bowel or bladder control, circulation problems, spasms, pain, difficulty breathing, and/or depression.
Our personal injury attorneys are familiar with the full range of health issues spinal cord injuries can cause, and we are prepared to take on any kind of serious spinal cord injury-related claim, such as:

- High and low blood pressure caused by spinal cord injuries
