Pursuing Justice for Spinal Cord Injury Victims

Spinal Cord Injury Attorney in St. Louis

Our Law Firm Takes Serious Injury Claims

A spinal cord injury occurs when the nerve tissue that makes up the spinal cord, the part of the body responsible for transmitting messages to and from the brain and the rest of the body, are damaged in some way. They may be stretched, compressed, or partially or completely severed, causing an interruption in the victim's ability to feel pain, heat, pleasure, etc. and control motor functions. This is a catastrophic injury, as it may result in partial or total paralysis or even death.

If you or a loved one suffered a severe spinal cord injury in an accident or another incident that could be linked to another person's negligence or wrongdoing, a St. Louis personal injury lawyer at Meyerkord & Meyerkord can offer helpful information and guidance to assist you in holding the responsible party accountable. We work to seek complete financial compensation for medical expenses, continued treatment, physical therapy, lost wages and more so that you are not forced to shoulder the economic burden of injuries you have suffered through no fault of your own.

How do spinal cord injuries happen?

The leading causes of spinal cord injuries include car accidents, falls, sporting injuries and assaults. In these events, the spine itself may suffer direct trauma or the body may be twisted or turned in such a way that the spine moves in an unnatural way. The spinal cord may then become damaged, potentially leading to paralysis injuries such as paraplegia or quadriplegia.

Acting quickly and discussing your legal rights and options with a personal injury attorney is an important step to take if you or someone you know has suffered a spinal cord injury. If this injury was caused by another person's carelessness, recklessness or even intentional wrongdoing, you may have the right to seek justice with a personal injury claim.

A lawyer can discuss your options in this regard to help you take the best course of action to financial recovery. Contact us online or call (800) 391-4318 today!
