About Spinal Cord Injuries

Damage to the spinal cord may occur when the cord is compressed or crushed through trauma. This can be caused by sports injuries, driving accidents, trampoline incidents, and other situations.

Spinal cord injuries are usually classified as “complete” or “incomplete”:

  • Complete injury- There is no sensation or voluntary movement below the level or location of the injury.
  • Incomplete injury- Some residual function may remain below the level of the lesion. For example, a person may still retain some feeling or limited movement in the affected limbs.

    A word we frequently associate with spinal cord injuries is paralysis. Paraplegics have sustained severe cord injury in the thoracic, lumbar, or sacral segments of the spine; quadriplegics have suffered severe cord injury around the cervical spine.

    Because a serious spinal cord injury is so debilitating and its effects so wide-ranging, it takes experienced, knowledgeable lawyers, like the attorneys at Vásquez Law Firm, PLLC, to work with an injured client’s physicians and rehabilitation team to fully explore and document the client’s many physical and emotional losses. Our Charlotte spinal chord injury lawyers know how to develop and present the medical opinions and testimony necessary to prove to a jury or an insurance company the nature of the client’s spinal cord injury, the cost of his past and future medical treatment, and the full extent of his permanent disabilities.

    We’ll Put Together a Winning Team

    When preparing a spinal cord injury case, it’s critical to put together a team that can strengthen your case. Our Charlotte injury attorneys often engage special experts to support a spinal cord injury case.

    Some of these experts include:

    • Lifecareplanners to describe the cost of medical services a client will need during his lifetime. The plan may include items like the cost of home health care attendants or assisted living facilities as well as the cost of medical equipment like wheelchairs, hoists, and other aides
    • Vocational rehabilitation counselors who will define the client’s loss of employment opportunities
    • Economists to project lost earning capacity or future lost wages over the client’s pre-accident work life expectancy
    • Psychologists or psychiatrists to describe the client’s mental condition and explain how his spinal cord injury has affected his family relationships

      In many cases, it may take all of these experts, as well as others, to present a full and fair picture of the overwhelming losses sustained as the result of a spinal cord injury.

      The Vásquez Law Firm, PLLC, has the experience, medical knowledge, and courtroom track record required to represent persons who have suffered severe spinal cord injuries in accidents that were not their fault. Contact us today at (704) 271-5597.
