How A Fairfax Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer Can Help If You Have Been Injured In Virginia Or Washington D.C.

A spinal cord injury occurs when there is damage to the spinal column, which is essential to the proper functioning of the central nervous system in your body. Any damage to the spinal cord can cause a loss of strength, a loss of function, or a loss of sensation below the injury. A spinal cord injury may be caused by a:

  • Car crash
  • Slip and fall
  • Abuse or violence, such as a gunshot wound
  • Sports injury
  • Disease, such as cancer, arthritis, or osteoporosis
  • Medical malpractice

Call a Fairfax spinal cord injury lawyer if you have sustained a spinal cord injury and you believe another is at fault for your pain and suffering. These types of cases can be complex in terms of the legal and medical issues, but our experienced attorneys can help.

According to the Mayo Clinic, you are at a higher risk for spinal cord injuries if you have been in an accident and you are:

  • Male
  • Between 16-30 years old
  • A high risk-taker
  • Have a bone or joint disorder
  • Athletic and involved in sports such as gymnastics, hockey, skiing, diving, and surfing

However, even if you do not fall into one of the categories listed above, you can still sustain a spinal cord injury, such as through a car accident. If left untreated, a spinal cord injury may lead to paralysis. It is important to get immediate treatment if you have suffered from a spinal cord injury.
