More Americans are disabled by spinal injuries every year than any form of physical trauma. The spinal cord is attached to the brain; a severe injury to the cord can result in paralysis from the waist down (paraplegia) or from the neck down (quadriplegia, Christopher Reeves’ injury.) These are devastating and usually permanent injuries, often resulting in complete vocational disability.
Spinal injuries may also include trauma to cervical, thoracic and lumbar discs, the shock absorbers in the vertebral column of the spine. To treat these injuries, extensive and major surgical procedures may have to be performed, such as laminectomies and spinal fusions, with resulting physical restrictions and permanent impairment.
The Gober Law Firm has helped thousands of persons with spinal injuries obtain compensation for their injuries to help them get needed medical treatment, rehabilitation and counseling and enable them to reclaim their lives.
