Florida Spinal Cord Injuries

A spinal cord injury is a traumatic blow to the spine. In a spinal cord injury, vertebrae in the spinal cord are fractured or dislocated. A spinal cord injury requires immediate medical attention and can cause an individual to become partially or permanently paralyzed. Each year over 12,000 people in the United States suffer spinal cord injuries and survive. Thousands of others die after the traumatic injury.

A spinal cord injury often occurs in younger adults. Nearly half of the injuries occurred in people between the ages of 16 and 30. Men suffer spinal cord injuries 80 percent of the time.

An injury to the spine can occur for a variety of reasons, including an automobile accident, pedestrian accidents or a sports injury.

Arm Yourself with Knowledge

If you or someone you love has suffered a spinal cord injury, you need to hire a Florida personal injury lawyer experienced dealing with these types of law suits and well versed in spinal cord injuries. Your injury attorney can talk with you about your case and work with you to make sure your legal rights are protected.

Someone who has suffered a spinal cord injury will incur serious medical costs, years of physical therapy and potentially lifelong effects to one’s ability to work. In a car accident, a Personal Injury Protection policy quickly covers up to $10,000 in related medical experiences. If the injury was caused by someone else’s negligence, you could be entitled to far more compensation, which could go a long way toward paying for those mounting medical bills.

Negligence occurs when someone does not take reasonable care when doing something. In a car accident, this might mean someone was texting while driving or perhaps under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident. In other words, the person had a blatant disregard for the safety of others.

Florida spinal cord injury lawyer James O. Cunningham has practiced law for over 30 years and has significant experience in dealing with spinal cord injuries. He understands Florida law and can fight for you and make sure you are protected. Contact our law firm today at 877-FL-INJURY (877-354-6587).
