Riverside Spinal Injury Lawyer
In a matter of seconds, a spinal injury can alter the rest of your life. If your injury was someone else’s fault, you deserve fair compensation, and a Riverside spine injury lawyer can help you get it.
Suffering a back or neck injury is serious when your spinal cord is affected. The idea that you’ll never walk or run again is terrifying and depressing, as is knowing that your career may be over and your plans for the future are likely to be hindered by financial problems. But if the accident wasn’t your fault, you can file a personal injury claim against the person or business that is to blame.
To get the compensation you deserve, you’ll have to enter some tricky negotiations and legal proceedings. To make this process fair to you, you may want to work with a Riverside spinal injury lawyer.
If that interests you, check with Dickson Kohan & Bablove, LLP before you run out of time. The personal injury statute of limitations in California is two years, but if the government was involved and named in your suit, you only have six months.
Accidents That Cause Spine Injuries in Riverside
Your accident may happen while you’re on the job, driving a car, or walking through a store. No matter where or how, it’s possible that more than one of these might be relevant to your Riverside spinal injury case:
Spinal Injury Types and Associated Conditions
The definitions of various spine injury types often refer to which vertebrae are affected and to what extent. All of these have the qualifiers of “complete” or “incomplete,” which mean “no sensation or function” and “limited sensation or function,” respectively. This is usually due to the depth of the cut in the spinal cord or whether it’s cut through completely.
The following is a quick look at the various vertebrae that your Riverside spine injury could have affected, as well as the parts of the body that could suffer paralysis as a result:
- Injuries to vertebrae C1 to C4 can cause high tetraplegia, and C5 to C8 injuries can cause low tetraplegia (quadriplegia), affecting the neck down.
- Injuries affecting T1 and below can cause paraplegia (paralysis) that affects from below the arms down.
- A partial cord injury of T1 or higher can create loss or reduction of sensation and movement in one arm and both legs, a condition known as triplegia.
You might suffer other symptoms of nerve damage, including chronic pain, numbness, tingling, and any amount of incomplete motor function.
