Trauma to the spinal cord often results in spinal cord cells being damaged. This damage can cause nerve impulses that travel throughout the spinal cord to fail, which leads to disability. Injury to the spine does not always result in damage to the spinal cord; some injury may result in a bulging disc or burst fracture.

Among the causes of spinal injury, mistakes made during surgery, sports-related accident, auto accident, scaffold accident, construction accident or other workplace accident are the most common. Additionally, products that are improperly built can also result in serious spinal injury. In some cases these accidents can be attributed to the negligence or carelessness of a third party, such as a company, business or individual. If you believe your spinal injury was caused because of the negligence of another entity, our Brooklyn Spinal Injury Lawyer team wants to talk to you about your legal options.

Back injury or spinal injury can happen virtually anywhere and can be caused by any number of scenarios. While it is common to think that these injuries only happen due to violent collisions, such as what happens during a car accident, they can result from a slip and fall accident or simply by bending over to pick up a dropped item.

The results of a spinal injury can vary as well. A person who has suffered a cervical spinal fracture or lumbar spinal injury may be left with either temporary or permanent loss of mobility. This loss of mobility can be confined to a certain area of the body as is the case with paraplegia, or can affect more parts of the body as in quadriplegia.

Any person who sustains a spinal injury no matter how innocuous it might seem should seek immediate medical attention. The quicker a person can get to help, the better the chances the effects of the injury can be minimized and the recovery time expedited. If you failed to get fast medical attention either because of an inattentive physician or a slow medical response, you may have the option to file a medical malpractice case against the parties involved. In this case, contact our Brooklyn Medical Malpractice Lawyer group at Stephen Bilkis & Associates, PLLC.
