The Critical Nature of Spinal Cord Injuries

The Consequences of a Spinal Cord Injury

The onset of a serious spinal cord injury can radically alter an individual’s life, plunging them into a realm of physical and emotional turmoil. These injuries, often resulting from negligence or medical errors during surgery or treatment, demand rigorous legal representation to ensure justice and compensation for the afflicted.

When it comes to spinal cord injuries, the effects can be far-reaching, manifesting in a diverse range of symptoms and challenges that have a profound impact on virtually every facet of a person’s life. From physical limitations to emotional struggles, these injuries can significantly alter an individual’s quality of life.

Victims may face:

  • Loss of mobility or paralysis, potentially affecting arms, legs, or both, depending on the injury’s level and severity.
  • Loss of sensation, including the inability to feel heat, cold, and touch.
  • Difficulty breathing, requiring the use of ventilatory support equipment in severe cases.
  • Bladder and bowel dysfunction, leading to significant changes in personal and social life.
  • Changes in sexual function and fertility, affecting relationships and personal well-being.
  • Pain or intense stinging sensation caused by nerve damage in the spinal cord.
  • Emotional challenges, including depression and anxiety, as individuals adjust to a new way of life.
  • Thermoregulatory dysfunction – impaired temperature regulation, making individuals susceptible to hypothermia or heat stroke.
  • Increased risk of cardiovascular disease, including issues such as low blood pressure and irregular heartbeat.

"I honestly don’t believe I could have gotten a better result with any other lawyers"

April of 2023, we finally reached a conclusion to the case and it was wildly successful by all accounts from those I know who live this profession in and out, every day. I can’t lie; "winning" my case didn’t make my loss less painful or my world bright and shiny. But having a team of attorneys that care and that explored every avenue of redress helped me feel like I was heard and valued and that my loss was unique and individual and worth pursuing. I honestly don’t believe I could have gotten a better result with any other lawyers. It’s not easy and it’s never simple to fight a system legally entrenched to quash due process in cases of potential culpability. The good news is, I didn’t have to. Luke and the folks at Van Wey, Metzler, Williams did the hard work and heavy lifting. I would recommend their representation without hesitation!
