The spinal cord is one of the most important parts of the human body. It carries information from your brain down to your organs and your limbs. It’s like an information superhighway. And if your spinal cord is injured, the consequences can be serious. Consequences of a spinal cord injury can range from tingling in your fingers and a bad headache to complete paralysis.

Our team of experienced Atlanta, GA and Mobile, AL spinal cord injury attorneys at Foster Law LLC, helps families like yours get the compensation they deserve for all manner of spinal cord injuries and accidents.
WHAT CAUSES A SPINAL CORD INJURY?
A spinal cord injury simply means an injury to any part of the spinal cord. Spinal cord injuries can be classified as “complete” or “incomplete.” A complete spinal cord injury is an injury where someone loses voluntary motion and feeling in one or more parts of the body. An incomplete spinal cord injury means someone’s feeling and mobility are diminished but not completely gone. Spinal cord injuries are always serious, and even with years of treatment, some never improve.
The most common causes of spinal cord injuries include:
- Automobile accidents,
- Motorcycle accidents,
- Boating or water sports accidents,
- Slip and fall accidents, and
- Workplace accidents (including operating heavy machinery).
If you’ve been injured in any of these types of accidents and think you have symptoms of a spinal cord injury, contact an experienced spinal cord injury attorney immediately.
WHAT KIND OF COMPENSATION SHOULD I EXPECT FOR A SPINAL CORD INJURY LAWSUIT?
A spinal cord injury can alter the course of your life forever. Typical compensation for a spinal cord injury could include:
- Compensation for current and future medical bills related to your injury;
- Compensation for current and future loss of income;
- Compensation for pain and suffering; and
- Payment for any necessary long-term care.
If you choose to file a spinal cord injury lawsuit, the value of any personal injury lawsuit is typically dependent on the severity of your injury.
