A back or spinal cord injury can have devastating repercussions in almost every aspect of your life. Herniated, slipped, or bulging discs, pulled muscles, and back strains typically cause pain, weakness, and disability. Numerous neurological problems can also result, including paralysis, loss of control, loss of strength, numbness, burning, and tingling sensations. Back and spinal cord injuries can be caused by:
- Automobile accidents
- DUI accidents
- Falls from heights and stairs
- Slips, trips, and falls
- Lifting heavy objects
- Violent assaults (including gunshots and stab wounds)
- Diving accidents
- Sports injuries (including skiing, gymnastics, football, soccer, basketball)
- Diseases such as osteoporosis, cancer, or arthritis
The American Spinal Injury Association publishes the international standards for neurological classification of spinal injuries. Through a number of specific tests, medical professionals can identify the location of areas effected and their level of dysfunction. At Larson Law, we are serious spinal injury attorneys, and we will consult and work with your medical specialists to determine the extent of your injuries and your prognosis for recovery. Through our extensive investigation and use of widely respected experts, we can obtain the maximum recovery available to you.
