One of the most serious injuries an individual can sustain in any type of accident is a back or spinal cord injury. These types of injuries are often catastrophic, resulting in permanent injury or death. If you or a loved one has suffered a spinal cord or back injury in an accident caused by another's negligence or wrongdoing in Frederick, or in the surrounding counties of Washington, Carroll, or Montgomery, it is vitally important that you seek professional legal assistance.
The Frederick personal injury lawyer at the firm can meet with you in a free, initial consultation to evaluate your case under personal injury law. If yours is a viable personal injury case, we can provide the legal guidance and representation you need to file an injury claim or lawsuit seeking damages.
Damage to the spinal cord can result in a loss of function, including mobility or the ability to feel anything at or below the damaged area. Spinal cord injuries can cause the injured person to become paralyzed, as in paraplegia or quadriplegia. It is not necessary for the spinal cord to be severed for a loss of function to occur. The spinal cord need only be damaged in some way. The effects of a spinal cord injury depend on how the cord was injured. A complete injury to the cord will result in no function below the level of the injury. An incomplete injury may result in partial functioning.
Because of the severity of these types of injuries, victims are often left permanently disabled without any means of supporting themselves. They may need medical care or assistance for the rest of their lives and be dependent on family members for their survival. In these devastating circumstances, injury victims and their families may require ongoing financial support. The Frederick back and spinal cord injury attorney at the firm is an experienced and dedicated lawyer who will work diligently on your behalf to recover the financial compensation you and your family deserve in the aftermath of such a debilitating injury.
