Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal Cord Injury Attorney, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Texas

Spinal cord injuries are different from many other types of injuries suffered in personal injury cases because the future medical expenses for such persons, who are often afflicted with paralysis and /or quadriplegia will be large when calculated to cover a lifetime.

As an experienced spinal cord injury lawyer at the Geisler Law Firm in Dallas, Texas, Ms. Benitez Geisler appreciates the nature of these injuries and understands the impact they have on the lives of their victims and families. Spinal cord injury results from an insult to the spinal cord. The insult can be from direct external physical harm (severed cord, crushed cord, compression injuries, vertebral dislocation/fracture, etc.), as well as indirect harm (compression resulting from adjacent hemorrhage, disturbance in blood supply resulting in infarction, hemorrhagic applied pressure). Whatever the mechanism of injury, the result is usually paraplegia or quadriplegia.

Paraplegia results from injury or insult to the thoracic, lumbar or sacral areas of the spinal cord. Survivors with paraplegia generally lose physical and sensory capability (movement and feeling) in lower areas of the body (typically waist and lower). Quadriplegia results from injury or insult to the cervical area of the spinal cord. Survivors with quadriplegia generally lose physical and sensory capability (movement and feeling) in both upper and lower areas of the body. Impairment extends to all four limbs.

Spinal cord injuries can result from a number of tragedies, including motor vehicle collisions, medical negligence, slip and falls, construction accidents, disease, excessive force, sports accidents, and other causes. Because the damages are catastrophic and potentially life threatening, it is important that a plaintiff's lawyer be familiar with these injuries and the impact they have on the lives of their victims and families. The Geisler Law Firm recognizes the importance of ensuring that a spinal cord injury client is compensated enough to ensure that the client's future medical needs are met.
