Louisiana Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers Helping Clients with Severe Neck & Back Injuries
Louisiana Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers Representing Victims of Neck and Back Injuries
The spinal cord is one of the most sensitive organs in the human body. When the back is impacted in a motor vehicle accident or other traumatic accident, there is a serious risk of damage to the spinal cord, which can have permanent, catastrophic consequences.
At the law firm of Domengeaux Wright Roy & Edwards LLC., our Lafayette spinal cord injury lawyers help clients throughout Louisiana pursue compensation for the full extent of their injuries, including the long-term damages associated with damage to the spinal cord.
Seeking Full Compensation for the Consequences of Spinal Cord Damage
The spinal cord is protected by the bones of the spine, as well as the muscles of the back. In a sudden collision, however, the back can be struck with a heavy object or rapidly jerked back and forth, damaging the spinal cord.
This can have consequences such as the following:
- Quadriplegia, the loss of function in both arms and legs, occurs when the spinal cord is severed or otherwise heavily damaged in the cervical spine (neck and upper back) region.
- Paraplegia, the loss of function in both legs, occurs when catastrophic damage is done to the spinal cord in the lower back region, also known as the lumbar spine.
- Paralysis can occur in other parts of the body — including the bowels and reproductive organs — when the spinal cord is damaged or pressed by a herniated disk.
If you or a loved one has suffered a spinal cord injury in an accident, it is important to retain a Louisiana spinal cord injury lawyer with the experience and resources to document, with the assistance of medical doctors and other experts, the long-term damages associated with this very serious type of injury.
