You may deserve compensation, but you also need an expert San Diego spinal cord injury lawyer to get you what your case is really worth.

The spinal cord is secondary only to the brain in complexity and fragility. Every year, thousands of individuals suffer spinal cord injury that can change their lives forever and devastate them personally and financially. Have you suffered from a spinal cord injury?

Spinal cord injury can occur due to a variety of causes, which include diseases, malformations, and traumatic injuries in situations such as car crashes or assaults. Though every case of spinal cord injury is complex and unique, most involve damage to the white matter and/or gray matter of the spinal tissue. This causes myelopathy, which interferes with the body’s ability to communicate with the brain.

These injuries are generally split into two categories: complete spinal cord injury in which there is no sensory or motor function below the level of injury, and incomplete injury in which the patient retains some sensation or motor function after being hurt. Though recent years have brought many developments in the treatment of spinal cord injury, science has not yet broken through to a complete treatment for patients, who can be disabled for life.

Spinal cord injury victims often face extensive medical bills, psychiatric repercussions, and an inability to work or participate in ordinary day-to-day activities.

Statistically speaking, car crashes (see Car Accident Attorney) are the highest source of spinal cord injury, followed by assaults and falls. Males are more likely to sustain spinal cord injury. In cases in which the injury occurs due to the lack of care, negligence, or misconduct of another person, the victim can often sue in civil court for monetary damages related to the high costs of treatment, lost wages, and ongoing disability.

"Words can never express the gratitude that my husband and I have for Attorney Steven Elia and attorney Holly Attiq.. For 2 years, we were put through fire with our personal injury case, but luckily we met Steven and Holly, that made the brutal process of litigation as comfortable as it can be for our family. And even after the dust came down, they still check on us very often and offer their services to try to help us to stand back on our feet."
