Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal Cord Injuries are life-changing. Your spinal cord consists of many nerves running down your spine connected to your brain stem. Damage to just one of those nerves could radiate pain to many different parts of your body. If you have been injured in an accident and are experiencing numbness, tingling, shooting sensations, or headaches you may have suffered a spinal cord injury.

Fractured Vertebrae (VCFs) occur when the bony block or vertebral body in the spine collapses, which can lead to severe pain, deformity, and loss of height. These fractures more commonly occur in the thoracic spine (the middle portion of the spine), especially in the lower part. (American Association of Neurological Surgeons)

A Herniated Disc is a fragment of the disc nucleus that is pushed out of the annulus, into the spinal canal through a tear or rupture in the annulus. Discs that become herniated usually are in an early stage of degeneration. The spinal canal has limited space, which is inadequate for the spinal nerve and the displaced herniated disc fragment. Due to this displacement, the disc presses on spinal nerves, often producing pain, which may be severe. (American Association of Neurological Surgeons)

Spinal Cord Accident Injuries

An accident involving a truck or commercial vehicle is frightening. To minimize the number of truck accidents, trucking companies are required to follow Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations regarding their equipment and driver hours of service. Despite these regulations, driver fatigue remains a common problem among truck and commercial vehicle drivers, contributing to the unsettling volume of fatal accidents across the country.

When we carefully examine records after an accident, they often show serious violations of the safety regulations specifically put in place for truckers. However, trucking companies are only required to maintain their records for six months. This means that without obtaining those records before they are destroyed, the injured person has a much more difficult time proving the trucking company’s negligence. At the Law Offices of Lucas & Magazine, we handle these cases confidently and with full knowledge of commercial vehicle regulations at the state and federal levels.

Common Injuries:

  • Back Injuries

  • Neck Injuries

  • Broken Bones

  • Head Injury

  • Internal Injury

  • Lacerations

  • Seat Belt Injuries

  • Spinal Cord Injuries (Paralysis)

  • Wrongful Death

We Fight For You

Insurance carriers scrutinize how an accident occurred, as well as attempt to diminish your injuries. After reporting the accident to open a claim, an insurance company will likely request a recorded statement to discuss the details of your accident and injuries. Insurance companies may attempt to use a recorded statement against you. Sometimes adjusters will try to trip you up, so that you may appear “upset confused, medicated, lacking sleep, or in severe pain unable to concentrate.” With the aid of a Spinal Cord Injury Accident attorney, you know you are protected from any inadequate questions or poor practices.

Our skilled Spinal Cord Injury Accidents Attorneys at The Law Offices of Lucas & Magazine are there for you every step of the way after your accident. Our team can help coordinate the medical care and transportation you need. While you try to restore your regular life, we will fight for the best financial recovery possible for your case.
