The Queens Spinal Injury Lawyer team at our firm found that thousands of people suffer from serious spinal cord injury each year in the United States. Spinal injury and spinal cord injury often range in severity, from chronic pain to partial or permanent paralysis. While long-lasting pain is hard enough to deal with, the prospect of being paralyzed for the rest of one's life is unthinkable, yet it happens, which is why having our Queens Spinal Injury Lawyer team to help recover damages is an important step to recovery.
There are a variety of causes of spinal injury; the most common are caused by mistakes made by surgeons, motorcycle and car accident, playground mishaps, complications during birth, products that malfunction, workplace accident and violent assault. Additionally, these accidents can be caused by the negligence of another person, business or party. Our Queens Spinal Injury Lawyer group understands that these injuries can have devastating and life-altering consequences for their victims and their families. If you or a family member is the victim of an accident that's resulted in serious spinal injury or spinal cord injury, call our New York Spinal Injury Lawyer team at Stephen Bilkis & Associates, PLLC to find out what you can do legally to help ease your suffering.
Whenever someone is stricken with a spinal injury, it is important that they receive immediate medical attention. Getting medical help quickly can limit the effects of the injury and aid in recovery times. If you or a loved one sustained a spinal injury and were delayed from getting medical attention either from a negligent physician or slow medical response team, you may be able to file a medical malpractice claim against those parties. Our Queens Medical Malpractice Lawyer team at Stephen Bilkis & Associates, PLLC will review your case and help formulate a legal course of action to help you get the compensation you deserve.
In some instances, a mild spinal injury can be treated with medications, such as corticosteroids and rest. In severe cases, spinal injury may require surgical techniques, such as a decompression laminectomy or possibly a discectomy. In other instances, such as with a lumbosacral spinal fracture, the vertebrae may have to be fused together in order to maintain the stability of the spine.
The Queens Spinal Injury Lawyer group at our firm says that caustic pain is the most common result of a serious spinal injury, but that other results can include:
- Low blood pressure
- Loss of movement
- Loss of reflexes
