Spinal Cord Injuries
The Richard Jones Law Firm represents individuals who have suffered a spinal cord injury. When an accident occurs, one of the more severe injuries a person can sustain is a spinal cord injury because of its devastating physical and emotional impact. At its mildest, a spinal cord injury results in weakness or numbness. However, at its most severe, the spinal cord injury victim may experience paralysis, as well as the accompanying loss of independence that such symptoms engender.
The risk of a spinal cord injury is present in many common accidents:
- Firearms — accidental or intentional discharges of firearms where the bullet strikes the spinal cord or strikes adjacents bones that then penetrate the spine.
- Car Accidents — car strikes a pedestrian or another vehicle.
- Sports — player collides with another in a helmet-to-helmet collision in football, or a swimmer hitting the bottom of a shallow pool with his or her head while diving.
