Legal Support Following a Catastrophic Injury
A spine injury can cause damage to the many organs, tissues, and body systems that are connected through the nerves in the spinal cord. People who suffer from these types of injuries may experience significant physical limitations and have an emotional impact that results from catastrophic harm.
When spine injuries are caused by another person’s negligence, a victim may be entitled to compensation through a legal claim. The spine injury lawyers at Richard Schwartz & Associates Injury Lawyers, P.A. in Mississippi are available to discuss your case if you sustained a back injury because of the oversight, disregard, and carelessness of somebody else.
The Effects of Back and Spinal Cord Injuries
The spine is constructed of individual, small bones called vertebrae. Within the vertebral structure of the spine is the spinal cord. The spinal cord is the network of nervous tissue that is housed in the spine and controls movement and sensation throughout the body.
When the spinal cord is injured, a victim will often experience intense pain along with a loss in the feeling and functionality of body systems. The specific impact of a spine injury will depend on which part of the spine was affected — connections to every part of the body can be found in the spine, so these types of injuries can yield a variety of symptoms. Spine damage is often a catastrophic injury that can result in severe complications including partial to complete paralysis, loss of organ functionality, spasms, and loss of sensation.
Causes of Spine Injuries and Liability
The impact of a motor vehicle collision, on-the-job accident, or other traumatic incident could result in a spinal cord injury. Because the causes of these injuries differ so widely, the details of claims — especially liable parties — can vary greatly.
Litigation of a spine injury case will depend on the specifics of your circumstance. For example, a person who sustained a back injury in a car accident may need to negotiate with insurance companies, while an occupational injury victim could pursue damages through a workers’ compensation claim. Our Mississippi spine injury lawyers are experienced in a variety of legal practice areas and are prepared to apply our knowledge to your case.
