Dedicated Spinal Cord Injury Attorneys
In the blink of an eye, an injury can change the course of your life. Whether the result of a slip-and-fall accident, a motor vehicle accident or an incident on the job, damage to your spinal cord can cause you serious pain and functional loss requiring a lifetime of rehabilitation. In some tragic cases, victims never regain full movement or sensation after a spinal cord injury or become unable to return to their previous line of work. The Texas personal injury lawyers at the Gilbert Adams Law Offices understand spinal cord injuries and commit themselves to obtaining full and fair compensation for injury victims harmed by another’s negligence, unsafe workplace or dangerous product.
What are common causes of spinal cord injury accidents?
Approximately 11 million people across the US are believed to have been the victim of a spinal cord injury. Spinal cord injuries can happen for a variety of reasons, including:
- Motor vehicle accidents: This is the most common reason for injuries to the spinal cord. Even forces transferred during relatively low-speed rear-end crashes can cause damage to the lumbar and/or cervical spine.
- Sports injuries: Contact sports, such as football and rugby, are responsible for many spinal cord injuries, especially among young men. Boating and diving accidents can also cause serious damage to the spine and neck.
- Workplace accidents: Ladder falls, trench collapses, and falling-object accidents are some of the common workplace accidents that can result in spinal cord injuries. In some cases, workers may be entitled to money damages beyond workers’ compensation for injuries they suffer on the job (often referred to as a third-party claim), and our Texas workplace injury lawyers can help you determine if you might have a right to file a lawsuit after an on-the-job accident.
- Dangerous or unsafe premises: Slick, wet or uneven floors and walking surfaces are responsible for thousands of spinal chord injuries every year. A premises owner has a responsibility to provide a safe premises.
