New York Broken Spine Lawyer
An injury from a car accident, truck accident or other auto accident can result in serious injury such as a broken spine. Often seen following a traumatic event, a broken spine is a fracture of any of the vertebral bones making up the spinal cord. Our New York Broken Spine Lawyer staff has found that many individuals are suffering from a broken spine due to another party’s actions. When an accident caused by someone’s intentional or unintentional actions causes an injury, they can be held legally liable for their actions. At Stephen Bilkis & Associates, PLLC, our New York Broken Spine Lawyer group can help you file a claim against any negligent party.
A broken spine or a spinal fracture can present with pain as a primary symptom. Other symptoms include:
- Difficulty walking
- Loss of bodily functions
Treatment for a broken spine depends on the severity of the injury. Some injuries will require emergency surgery and others will require extensive bed rest. If you are suffering from a broken spine and have not received appropriate medical treatment, our New York Broken Spine Lawyer group may be able to help you file a medical malpractice claim against the negligent physical therapist, emergency doctor or physician and any other negligent healthcare provider.
With many back injuries occurring due to irresponsible employers, our New York Broken Spine Lawyer team can help you decide if your employer was negligent and caused your accident. If you employer is liable, you may be able to file a workers compensation claim. Some broken spine injuries are the result of a construction accident or fall which occurred due to a ladder accident. Other broken spine injuries are the result of a slip and fall accident or due to a fall from scaffolding in a scaffold accident. In each of these cases, the employer and other parties may be responsible for the accident and resulting injury. Contact our staff to discuss your legal options.
