Experienced Injury Lawyers that Understand Spinal Cord Injury

West Palm Beach Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer

Mobility is such an essential element in our lives that most of us take it for granted. Sadly, every day residents throughout Florida are injured in accidents that take away their mobility, often turning their lives upside down. Our West Palm Beach Personal Injury Lawyers can help you.

One of the most common ways that this occurs is via spinal cord injuries. The spinal cord plays a central role in almost all movement, from walking and moving one’s hand to wiggling a toe and even sitting upright.

Unfortunately, preventable car accidents and slip and fall accidents strike every day that cause back injuries which damage the spinal cord. When the underlying accident was caused by the carelessness of another person (or company) then the law allows the injured party to recover for their losses.

For years our legal team at Fetterman & Associates, PA has helped families in Port St. Lucie, West Palm Beach, and many other communities who were harmed in just this manner. No one who suffered a spinal cord injury should go it alone.

We are proud to help all Florida residents protect their rights following a tragic back or spinal cord injury accidents. To see how we can help in your case, please give us a call at 561-845-2510 or contact us online.

Forms of Back Injury

Back injuries that damage the spine take many forms. In general, however, these injuries fall into two categories: acute and chronic injuries.

Acute- These spine injuries refer to harms that are not as severe and may be repaired with surgery, rest, medication, or other treatments. Acute injuries may still be very painful and significantly impact a victim’s life, but they often can eventually heal.

Chronic – Alternatively, chronic spine injuries are permanent, often referring to severe damage that will forever alter the life of the sufferer. Surgery, medications, and other treatment options may limit some of the damage. However, chronic spinal injuries will never fully heal, often leading to constant pain and physical limitations.

Both acute and chronic spine injuries can each have different consequences, depending on the exact damage done to the spine. The specific injuries may include shifted spinal discs, broken disks, nerve damage, muscle tears or rips, and ligament harm.

In the most severe cases, a victim may suffer partial or full paralysis. The paralysis can affect a single part of the body up to complete bodily immobility.

Spinal Cord Injury – The Causes

Any significant trauma can lead to a spinal cord injury. Some of the most common accidents causing back injuries for Florida residents include:

Legal Liability Following Spine Injury in Florida

As with all preventable accidents, many important legal issues may arise in the aftermath of a severe injury. Those who suffer spine injuries are frequently harmed due to the negligence of another either partially or fully.

In those cases, the sufferer can receive compensation to aid in recovery and help with the many long-term implications of the harm.

Liable parties in these situations may include a negligent driver, employer, substandard medical professional, manufacturer of a dangerous product, property owner, or many other individuals and entities.

After learning about the details of your case, a legal professional can explain potential theories of liability and highlight the likelihood of recovery.

Thank you for the best “first accident case” I’ve ever had… I was referred to Fetterman and Associates by a coworker from a previous job I had. Once my car was totaled out, I contacted them. Not only were they friendly and understanding - they took over the whole process which helped me. I was stressed and panicking about it all and thankfully, I didn’t have to worry as the process began. I had no idea what I was doing or going to do. I am glad I chose them because everything was a breeze for me. They are kind, respectful, responsive and great to work with!

The entire staff in the Fetterman office are available always to help. No matter what time of day I called or left a message I have always received a call back. I was made to feel like one of the family and treated with respect and dignity. The lawsuit was handled quickly, professionally, and with all bases covered. Whenever I had a question or needed help the staff was there to make sure that everything was done accurately. The positive attitude of the entire staff made me comfortable and assured me that all was done accurately.

Looking for a good team they are the way to go… I was referred from a family member to seek advice due to my accident. I was contacted back the same day I called over the weekend. I experienced great service from Fetterman and Associates and my lawyer did an awesome job with closing my case. I appreciate what they went beyond to help my case and was very professional. Thank you Mr Cavataro and Sylvia.
