Spinal Cord Injury
Getting Money to Deal With a Serious Personal Injury
When you suffer a spinal cord injury, you often need help paying for your current and long-term medical expenses. These injuries are often caused by violent accidents that require extended hospital stays and continuing medical care. Given the fact that you are out of work, you also need money to cover your lost wages.

The party who caused your broken neck or back will face justice, and will pay your medical bills. Our team of lawyers has the litigation experience and legal skill required to stand up for your rights.
Types of Spinal Cord Injuries
People injure their spines in a variety of accidents. Usually these injuries result from a serious auto accident, truck wreck, slip and fall, dangerous product or sports related accident. The type of injury you eventually suffer depends on where your spine was damaged, the attempt to stabilize your spine before moving you, and the following medical care. Your spinal cord injuries may have resulted during any of these stages.
Our attorneys represent people throughout Missouri and Kansas suffering from a:
- Spine injury resulting in quadriplegia and paraplegia
- Broken back and neck
- Disk and nerve damage
Long Term Care Following a Spinal Cord Injury
The difference between other types of injuries and injuries to your spinal cord is that people rarely recover completely from paralysis. You will have to cope with long-term changes in your lifestyle and living habits following this type of accident. You will face ongoing physical therapy and medical care. Our attorneys will help you obtain the money that you need to cover those expenses.
