PORT ST LUCIE SPINAL INJURY LAWYER

The central nervous system is made up of only two parts – the brain and the spinal cord. As the pathway for all information and stimuli from the brain and body, the spinal cord plays a monumental role in carrying out everyday functions.   Any damage to the spinal cord can be devastating, as it is crucial in helping you move, feeling pressure and pain, and regulating body temperature, heart rate, blood pressure, digestion, and many other functions.

Causes of Spinal Injury

Slip-and-falls and vehicle accidents are the main causes of spinal cord injuries in Port St. Lucie. These injuries are painful, expensive, and can negatively impact a person’s life. The severe effects of a spinal cord injury range from loss of sensation and back or neck pain to complete paralysis and death.   Unfortunately, many spinal cord injuries are caused by another person or company’s negligence. For example, it would be negligent of a store owner to clean and leave their floor slippery without visual warnings because any customer could slip, fall, and suffer damage to their spine.   Another common example of negligence resulting in spinal cord injury is when a  distracted, intoxicated, or otherwise impaired driver causes an accident that results in another driver’s spinal damage.   If your spinal cord injury was caused by an individual or company’s negligence, you have a right to pursue compensation. Our attorneys at Steinger, Greene & Feiner in Port St. Lucie understand that you’ve already suffered because of your injury – you shouldn’t have to suffer financially, too.

Free Case Evaluation

 

After you experience spinal cord injury, no matter the severity, you should take the following steps:

  • Seek proper medical care from your physician or the emergency department.
  • Take photos of your injuries.
  • Write down or record all details you remember from the accident that caused your injury.

While every case is different, most personal injury lawsuits do not go to trial. However, if both parties do not reach an agreement or if the injury is severe enough, the case may be brought to trial.
