Spinal cord injuries are among the most serious injuries that a person may experience. The spinal cord acts as an information superhighway in the body, sending commands and information to and from the brain so the body can function properly. It also initiates and coordinates a number of reflex acts. A spinal cord injury acts like an accident on this highway, stopping traffic and preventing the brain from communicating with the rest of the body.
Incidents like falls from heights, pedestrian accidents, motorcycle accidents, assaults, and slip and fall accidents can cause spinal cord injuries that forever change a victim’s life. These injuries are so serious that they often affect the victim’s family as well.

Seek Fair Compensation for Your Lifelong Care
Spinal cord injuries may cause partial or total paralysis, on a temporary or permanent basis. Very minor spinal cord damage may heal on its own, but if the nerves are severely damaged or completely severed, there may be little to no chance of recovery, even with the many advancements that have been made in modern medicine through the years.
Rebuilding your life after a spinal cord injury may seem impossible, but you could be entitled to a significant amount of financial compensation – for your lifelong care. This may cover:
- Medical expenses
- Ongoing therapy
- In-home care
- Assistive/adaptive devices
- Modification to your home
- Lost earnings
- Loss of future earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of consortium
Let’s seek justice and the complete monetary damages to which you are rightfully entitled. Call (646) 681-7055 or contact us online to put our New York City spinal cord injury lawyers on your side.
