Neck and Spine Injury Causes

Most neck and spinal cord damage is caused by sudden, violent accidents. Motor vehicle accidents commonly result in neck and spinal cord injuries of varying severity. Falls on the job or on hazardous premises are often grounds for a workers' compensation or premises liability lawsuit. Those who participate in high-impact sports, such as football and rugby, are also at risk. Additionally, a violent attack, such as a stabbing or shooting, can damage the spinal cord. In some tragic cases, a neck or spine injury could be fatal, resulting in a wrongful death case. As attorneys, we understand that no amount of money is enough to compensate for a serious neck or spinal cord injury. Still, our lawyers will work tirelessly to ensure that your family receives a large verdict or settlement.

About Whiplash

Whiplash is a neck injury caused by sudden, violent direction changes. Most whiplash victims are injured in automobile accidents. Whiplash injuries account for a large percentage of the money paid out by automobile insurers worldwide. Common symptoms include neck and shoulder pain, headaches, and a pins-and-needles sensation. Many victims do not feel symptoms immediately, so it is important to see a doctor even after a relatively minor car accident.

Although whiplash does not typically compromise a person's ability to function normally, it can be very painful and the symptoms can linger, making it potentially expensive to treat. Individuals who have suffered whiplash or another neck or spinal cord injury can rely on our lawyers to help. Attorneys at Rodman, Rodman & Sandman, serving Boston, Malden, and Everett, Massachusetts, will aggressively pursue compensation on your behalf from the parties responsible, ensuring you do not have to pay to treat an injury that was someone else's fault.

Catastrophic Spinal Cord Injuries

Unfortunately, some neck and spine injuries are very serious indeed. The spinal cord is a delicate bundle of nerves that gives a person control over their extremities, and serious damage can leave a person partially or totally paralyzed. Paralysis typically occurs from the point at which the injury occurred down, so if the spinal cord is damaged near the waist, a person will no longer be able to feel or move his or her legs, and may be confined to a wheelchair (a condition known as paraplegia). If spinal cord is severed at the neck, the victim will be unable to move his or her arms or legs (a condition known as quadriplegia).

Coping with paraplegia or quadriplegia is emotionally and financially challenging for any family. This sort of catastrophic injury may leave the victim partially or completely unable to work. If the injured person is the family's principle breadwinner, this compounds the problem. The spinal cord and neck injury lawyers of Rodman, Rodman & Sandman are veteran attorneys with decades of experience handling catastrophic injury lawsuits. While no one can return things to the way they were before a serious injury, we can help ensure that the individuals responsible for these tragedies amply provide for injury victims and their families.
