Spinal Cord Personal Injury Claims in LA
Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries are often very serious, and the resulting
physical, mental, and emotional damage can affect a victim for the rest of their life. Accidents that cause spinal
cord injuries are not that rare, and the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical
Center reported in 2011 that there are approximately 12,000 new cases
of spinal cord injury in the United States each year. In addition to physical
complications, injured individuals may be facing costly medical bills
and may be unable to work and support themselves or their families.
When you have suffered from a spinal cord injury, you deserve to be compensated
for the expenses you are now responsible for, in addition to the loss
of quality of life you are facing. Attorney Dan Robin has fought for over
20 years on behalf of clients in Chalmette, St. Bernard Parish, and across

How Severe are Spinal Cord Injuries?
Most begin with a blow that either fractures or dislocates the vertebrae,
but does not actually sever the spinal cord. In these instances, the injuries
sustained often involve pieces of vertebrae tearing into nerve tissue
or pressing down and damaging nerve parts that carry signals. In more
severe cases, the spinal cord is hurt in a way that prevents it from relaying
messages and paralysis results.

treatment options often help victims recover to some extent, many will
require long-term care, resulting in significant stress and costly medical
bills that can put a major burden on the injured individual and their family.
