Back and Spinal Cord Injury

One of the most common areas of the body to be injured is the back, including spinal cord injuries. Car accidents, workplace injuries, slips/falls and medical errors can all cause back or spinal cord damage. Injuries can range from whiplash to paralysis and short-term to long-term. If you have a back or spinal cord injury caused by the negligence of others, you may be eligible to seek compensation for your injuries. The law firm of Dwayne L. Brown can help you explore your options with catastrophic injury claims, including a back or spinal cord injury lawsuit.

Back injuries can involve muscles, ligaments, nerves and spine damage that affect your ability to move and function. Impact, jarring or repeated strain can cause injuries that can be painful and disabling, affecting your ability to work or even complete routine activities. Treatment for back injuries is often long-term. Many back injuries require surgery, physical therapy and ongoing care.

Spinal cord injuries are usually caused by trauma to the back or spine but can also be a complication of back injuries. The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves protected by the spine. When these nerves are impinged, damaged or severed, it can cause pain, dysfunction and paralysis. In some cases, the damage can be permanent, causing long-term disability for the victim.

Causes of Back and Spinal Cord Injuries

Car accidents and workplace injuries are common causes of back and spine injuries. Trauma to the back or spinal cord during the impact of an auto accident can cause extensive damage. Strain on the back from unsafe workplace activities or accidents can cause herniated discs and other injuries. Any activity that compromises the back components can potentially result in long-term injuries. Even a fall on a slippery floor may cause extensive damage to the back or neck.

Unfortunately, many back and spinal cord injuries are preventable. A distracted driver that causes a car wreck or a surgeon that makes a medical error can be the cause of a life-long injury. If you have sustained a back or spinal cord injury due to the negligence of another, contact the Law Office of Dwayne L. Brown in Atlanta. You may be eligible to seek compensation for your medical costs, treatments, lost income and pain or suffering.

    Rafiq A.

    My family and I met Attorney Dwayne Brown after the unfortunate accident involving my niece. Attorney Brown did an exceptional job representing my family. He was the consummate professional, and treated my family with the utmost dignity and respect. As a result of his representation, my family was able to achieve a substantial settlement in our case. Although we obviously did not get our loved back, we are prayerful that we met Attorney Brown. My family would highly recommend Attorney Brown to anyone in a similar situation.

    An excellent and professional lawyer. He took on a car accident case on my behalf, worked with me from across the country, and was just as vigorous in his pursuit of justice on day 912 as he was on day 1.
