Sangamon County Spinal Cord Injury Attorney

Schuyler County spine injury and paralysis attorney

Lawyers for Neck and Back Injuries Resulting in Paralysis in Springfield, Champaign, and Peoria

The spinal cord is an important part of the body's central nervous system, and any injuries that affect the spine can not only be incredibly painful, but they can result in permanent disabilities. Victims of these types of catastrophic injuries may experience loss of sensation or mobility issues in different parts of their body, or they may suffer complete paralysis that causes them to be unable to care for themselves or even breathe on their own. A skilled personal injury attorney can help victims of spine injuries determine how to receive financial compensation that addresses the ways they and their families have been affected.

The lawyers of Kanoski Bresney have been working with injury victims for over 40 years, and we are dedicated to helping our clients pursue the compensation they deserve following a catastrophic accident or severe injury. As the largest personal injury law firm in central Illinois, we have the experience and resources needed to show why victims should be repaid for the damages they have suffered. With more than $400 million recovered on behalf of our clients, we can make sure you receive the respect, response, and results you deserve.

Causes and Effects of Spinal Injuries

Damage to the neck, back, and spinal cord can occur in many different situations, including:

Spinal cord injuries are divided into two categories: complete and incomplete. In an incomplete spinal cord injury, the spine will still have some ability to convey signals between the brain and different parts of the body, and a person may suffer partial paralysis or loss of sensation in different parts of the body. A complete spinal cord injury, on the other hand, often involves a severed spinal cord, and depending on the level of the spine where the injury occurred, a person may experience total paralysis in some or all of the body.

In serious cases, a spine injury can lead to paraplegia, in which the legs and lower body are paralyzed, or quadriplegia, which involves paralysis of the legs and the arms. Victims of these types of injuries will be permanently disabled, and they may require significant ongoing medical care, as well as assistive devices and modifications to their homes and vehicles.

Even if spinal cord injuries do not lead to paralysis, they can have long-term effects on a person's health and well-being. Victims may experience chronic pain, and they may require physical therapy that will allow them to return to the level of function they had before their injury. While a person is recovering, they may be unable to work and earn an income, and their ability to continue working in their chosen career may be permanently affected.
