Your spinal column is composed of 33 vertebrae and 5 regions: cervical (upper), thoracic (mid), lumber (lower), sacrum and coccyx. This remarkably complex bone structure supports your body and protects a vulnerable bundle of nerves that carry signals from your brain throughout your body: the spinal cord. Damage to the spinal cord or column can result in permanent and debilitating injuries such as paralysis (complete or partial), among others. Treatment for a spinal cord injury is usually extremely expensive and invasive, leaving patients with tens of thousands of dollars in medical debt and possibly eliminating their ability to work. If your spinal injury was the result of negligence—such as a car accident or slip and fall—then it’s time to consider consulting a lawyer to explore your legal options for recovery and compensation.
