Spinal Cord Injury Attorneys in Fort Lauderdale
Call (954) 467-8800 If You Suffered Spine Damage in an Accident?
Spinal cord injuries are among the most traumatic injuries anyone can suffer. Since the spinal cord is responsible for transmitting signals from your brain to every other part of your body, even the slightest disruption to that signal can have a significant, and potentially permanent, effect on the rest of the body.
If your spine was injured because of someone else’s actions, you may be able to file a lawsuit to secure the compensation you need to cover any damages and medical bills you may have incurred.
Give our firm a call at (954) 467-8800 to speak with an experienced Fort Lauderdale spine injury lawyer.

What Causes Spinal Cord Injuries?
Spinal cord injuries are generally caused by a traumatic event that fractures, dislocates, or crushes the vertebrae enough that it damage the nerves within the spinal cord. A knife or gunshot wound can also cause a traumatic spine injury.
Spine damage can also occur from non-traumatic causes like a disease or infection.
The most common causes of spinal cord injuries include:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- High impact sports
- Acts of violence
How Serious Is Your Spinal Cord Injury?
Spinal cord injuries are broken down into different classifications depending on their effects on the victim’s ability to function.
- Incomplete spinal cord injuries mean that some motor and sensory functions remain below the point of injury.
- Complete spinal cord injuries mean all motor and sensory functions are lost below the point of injury, resulting in permanent paralysis.
Both complete and incomplete spine injuries will require extensive medical treatment and long-term physical rehabilitation. Cases of quadriplegia and paraplegia may require medical equipment and in-home care just to live a normal life.
