North Dakota Spinal Injury Attorneys Holding Negligent Parties Accountable
Seeking justice for clients with life-changing injuries
The National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center (NSCISC) estimates that about 17,500 new spinal cord injury cases occur nationwide each year. While the causes of these catastrophic injuries vary, the victims generally have at least two things in common — physical pain and extensive medical costs. These types of injuries have a devastating impact on injured victims and their families, who are unprepared for the expense of huge medical bills and the challenge of a long and painful recovery process.
You and your family members don’t have to suffer in silence when impacted by the physical and emotional trauma of another party’s negligence. The skilled North Dakota spinal injury attorneys of the Larson Law Firm P.C. fight the legal battle to obtain the compensation that you and your family deserve. We aggressively go after responsible parties and hold them liable for the careless and negligent actions that led to your spinal cord injury.
Accidents that can lead to the most severe spinal cord injuries
A traumatic spinal injury happens as a result of a sudden blow to the spine. The impact of the accident crushes, compresses or fractures the vertebrae, spinal column disks or the spinal cord. While the NSCISC lists falls and car accidents as the leading causes of spinal injuries, our experienced lawyers have seen a variety of situations that cause spinal cord injuries including:
- Car wrecks
- Truck crashes
- Motorcycle accidents
- Bicycle crashes
- ATV collisions
- Contact sports, such as football
- Recreational activities, like water skiing and jet skiing
- Acts of violence and physical assaults
- Medical malpractice
- Workplace accidents
- Oil field accidents, such as falls from derricks
You deserve full compensation for all losses related to your catastrophic injuries, including emotional pain and suffering. At the Larson Law Firm, our team of lawyers is your staunchest ally, aggressively negotiating on your behalf to get you the fair legal settlement you deserve, or upholding your rights in court during a trial.
Spinal cord injuries cause permanent health issues
A spinal cord injury causes damage to the bundle of nerves that runs from the brain through the spine. It can result in full or partial loss of sensation and movement in the body. With minor spinal injuries, surgery and rehabilitation helps patients regain their mobility. However, with traumatic injuries the spinal cord is permanently damaged and cannot be surgically repaired.
Because the spinal cord sends messages between the brain and the rest of the body, when the spine is damaged other parts of the body do not function properly. Often, victims suffer from such long-term health issues as:
- Inability to walk or move limbs
- Loss of feeling
- Nerve damage
- Muscle weakness
- Numbness and tingling
- Sexual dysfunction
- Breathing and respiratory problems
- Loss of bowel and bladder control
- Blood clots
- Pressure sores
- Spastic muscles
Our knowledgeable team understands that you face an uncertain future with painful, life-long medical issues. That is why we put all of our knowledge and skill into pursuing compensation on your behalf.
