At Stephen Bilkis & Associates, PLLC, our Staten Island Spinal Injury Lawyer team is experienced in handling all types of spinal injury and spinal cord injury cases. Based on their years of experience, our legal team states that traumatic spinal cord injury affects thousands of people through life-altering paralysis or wrongful death. Because of the potential severity of spinal cord injury and spinal injury in general, a victim and their family can suffer devastation that will last a lifetime. Our Staten Island Spinal Injury Lawyer group has the knowledge, resources and experience to help you and your family recover as best as possible from such a life-changing injury.
While a spinal cord injury can the result in permanent disability or paralysis, it does not always result in damage to the spinal cord. In some cases, a person will suffer a bulging or herniated disc, which is painful, but not necessarily life-altering. A more serious injury can result in a compression fracture, hemiplegia, or a burst fracture.
There are numerous causes for back injury. At Stephen Bilkis & Associates, PLLC, our Staten Island Spinal Injury Lawyer group has found that among the causes of spinal injury, the most common causes are errors committed during surgery, birth complications, assault, sports accident, playground accident, faulty products, workplace accident and vehicular accidents like truck accident, car accident or motorcycle accident. We have also found that these accidents are often caused by a reckless or negligent second party. If you or someone in your family is suffering the effects of a serious spinal injury, contact the New York Spinal Injury Lawyer team at Stephen Bilkis & Associates, PLLC to review your case and suggest a legal course of action.
Injury to the spine almost always demands immediate medical attention. Getting help quickly after an injury can minimize the long-term effects of the injury and aid in recovery time. If you sustained a back injury and did not get the help you needed quickly, either because of slow medical responders or an inattentive doctor, you may be able to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. Our Staten Island Medical Malpractice Lawyer team at Stephen Bilkis & Associates, PLLC will go over the details of your case and suggest a course of action to help you get the compensation you deserve.
The results of a spinal injury or spinal cord injury can be mild or severe. In mild cases, the victim may be in extended pain, but will go on to a full recovery. In cases, such as a thoracic spinal fracture, the results can be loss of motor function, loss of bowel function, inability to regulate blood pressure and loss of respiratory function.
In addition to the life-altering physical consequences of a spinal injury, a person will often experience devastating emotional trauma as well. People who have become paralyzed often feel hopeless and depressed. Unfortunately, because of the lengthy physical and emotional treatments required, medical bills can be staggering, which is why having our experienced Staten Island Spinal Injury Lawyer team fighting for your legal rights, can be a right step on the road to recovery.
If you or a loved one has sustained a traumatic spinal injury, call our New York Spinal Injury Lawyer group to review your legal options. Our attorneys will review your case to determine if another party is responsible for your injury and then pursue a course of action that will help you get compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering.
