Spinal Cord Injury Claims in New York

Spinal cord injuries are very serious and can result in paraplegia or quadriplegia. Even when spinal cord injury victims are not paralyzed, they will likely face a great deal of pain and a long, uphill road to recovery. The cost of treating a spinal cord injury can be immense, easily exceeding hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars over the course of one’s lifetime.

At Cherundolo Law Firm, PLLC, we are committed to helping victims of catastrophic injuries fight to hold negligent parties accountable.

Complete vs. Incomplete Spinal Cord Injuries

Generally speaking, spinal cord injuries are categorized into two types:

  • Complete Spinal Cord Injuries: A complete spinal cord injury refers to an injury that completely severs the nerve connections between the body and the brain. Complete spinal cord injuries often result in paralysis, including paraplegia (paralysis of the lower half) and quadriplegia/tetraplegia (paralysis of both the arms and the legs). The location and severity of the injury will determine the nature and extent of the damage.
  • Incomplete Spinal Cord Injuries: An incomplete spinal cord injury is generally considered less severe than a complete spinal cord injury. With an incomplete injury, some connections between the body and the brain are preserved, meaning the victim may retain some functioning, movement, and sensation above or below the point of injury.

Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries often result from catastrophic accidents. All too often, these accidents could have—and should have—been prevented. In other words, spinal cord injuries are often caused by negligence.

Some of the most common causes of spinal cord injuries include:

Regardless of how your accident occurred, if you believe someone else was at fault, you may be able to seek financial compensation for your damages. While nothing can undo the devastation that comes with suffering a spinal cord injury, financial recovery can allow you to obtain critical medical treatment and move forward through the healing process.
