What Should I do After a Spinal Cord Injury?

If you are someone who has recently sustained a serious injury to your spinal cord, you are most likely now considering your legal options. Our firm is here to help. Simply read on and reach out to our experienced New York City personal injury attorneys to learn more about spinal cord injuries and what we can do for you. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What does the spinal cord do?

There are few things more devastating than spinal cord injuries. The spinal cord’s primary function is to send signals from the brain to the rest of the body, communicating what you want your body to do. Without a properly functioning spinal cord, you may not be able to walk or move your arms or hands.

What are the most common symptoms of a spinal cord injury?

Unfortunately, spinal cord injuries frequently result in paralysis. Along with paralysis comes a list of various side effects and symptoms that can drastically affect a victim’s quality of life. If you have sustained a spinal cord injury, you may also suffer from the following:

  • Urinary tract problems
  • Depression and other psychological issues.
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Pressure sores (bed sores from lack of movement)
  • Muscle spasms
  • They may have lung problems or trouble breathing
  • Bladder and bowel issues

How do I file a lawsuit for a spinal cord injury?

Regardless of the cause of your accident, our firm is here to help you. Whether you were recently injured in an auto accident, sustained a serious slip and fall, were injured by a defective product, or are the victim of medical malpractice, we have what it takes to fight for the compensation you deserve and need.

That being said, the wrongly injured in New York City have a certain amount of time to take legal action against the negligent party. For example, in most cases, the statute of limitations is three years, which will, generally, give individuals three years from the date of their accident to sue the party responsible for their injuries. However, if you were injured in a medical malpractice incident, you will, generally, only have 2.5 years to sue. No matter where you sustained your injuries, the most important thing you can do is reach out to an experienced New York City personal injury attorney today.
