People who suffer spinal cord injuries often talk about their lives as having two stages: life before their accident and life after it. This is because of the profound and lasting effects of spinal cord injuries. Loss of mobility and discomfort due to partial paralysis, paraplegia or quadriplegia are just the symptoms that are obvious to outsiders.
Depending on the severity of the injury, previously routine tasks such as eating, bathing, using the bathroom and even breathing can become enormous challenges.

If you have lost coordination in your arms or legs or are experiencing sharp pains, numbness or a sensation of “electricity,” you may have suffered a neck or back injury. If so, it is important that you seek medical treatment immediately to prevent further injury to your spinal cord and the nerves that branch from your spinal cord, as well as muscles and tissues.
Treatment can relieve your immediate pain, and it can prevent your injury from getting worse. It can also benefit you when you seek compensation from any negligent parties or their insurers. By getting a diagnosis and starting a process of medical treatment documentation, you create a paper trail that can be used in making claims to insurers or in a lawsuit.
By gathering evidence from your accident reports and medical reports, our New Orleans spinal cord injury attorneys can prepare for your success in court or in settlement negotiations. We also have access to medical experts, vocational rehabilitation specialists and other qualified parties who can provide advice and medical care regarding your condition and your prospects moving forward.
Finally, we can help you document your medical expenses so that the true costs of your condition can be presented as proof of your need for compensation.
