The spinal cord is one of the most fragile and sensitive areas of the human body. Even a minor injury to this delicate yet essential bundle of nerves can cause catastrophic damage.

Long Term Impact of a Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal cord injuries often result in conditions of partial or full paralysis, including quadriplegia, paraplegia, and hemiplegia. Because of this, people who suffer such injuries often require a tremendous amount of care and supervision. The costs can be enormous, financially, and emotionally.

In addition, spinal cord injuries often go undetected for extended periods of time, resulting in further damage. If you settle with the insurance company before the full extent of your injuries is known, you could limit your ability to collect damages for injuries that may not make themselves known for months or even years after your initial accident.

For these reasons and others, it is extremely important to have an experienced, aggressive New York spinal cord injury attorney on your side who understands the nature of these types of injuries and has experience in litigating such claims.

  • What is the difference between criminal procedure and civil procedure?
    When a crime has been committed, action is taken by a government agency against the person, persons, organization or other entity that violated the law. The first purpose of a criminal prosecution is punishment, which frequently consists of a fine or jail time. In a civil matter, the dispute is between two or more individuals or entities. The first purpose of a civil prosecution is obtaining compensation for the wronged person or entity. Settlement in a civil matter is generally an award of a money judgment. A criminal sentence is not imposed in a civil matter.
