Back & Spinal Cord Injuries

Tennessee Back Injury Attorneys

Compensation for Debilitating Injuries

Back and spinal injuries can leave victims with a lifetime of pain and disability. Whether people are in such severe pain that they need strong painkillers or they lose motor function, the consequences may be the same: an inability to work or care for themselves.

If you or a family member is suffering from a back or spinal cord injury due to another's negligence, you may be able to collect compensation. To ensure you receive adequate compensation to cover medical bills and lost income, work with an experienced personal injury law firm. The Law Office of Donald D. Zuccarello provides intelligent, aggressive representation for spinal cord injury victims and their families.

Pain and Paralysis Can Affect the Entire Body

Car accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle and pedestrian accidents, slip-and-fall accidents and workplace accidents are common causes of back and spinal injuries. Lifting and other repetitive stress activities can also injure the back and aggravate conditions such as degenerative disk disease.

The most serious injuries occur when the spinal disks and nerves are damaged. Fractured, herniated and ruptured disks can cause severe, persistent pain in the neck, back, arms and legs. People who suffer this type of injury may be unable to find any position that does not cause them pain. They may also experience muscle weakness and a reduced range of motion. Pain and the side effects of painkillers may prevent them from working.

Damage to the spinal nerves can also cause paralysis, paraplegia or quadriplegia. In general, the higher on the spine the injury occurs, the greater the number of affected body systems. For example, quadriplegia, loss of sensation and organ dysfunction can occur after an injury to the upper cervical region of the spine.

To calculate the present and future needs of the injury victim, we may work with economists, medical experts and life-care planners. We understand that when an injury leaves a person permanently disabled, the entire family will be affected. We take the family's needs into consideration when we argue for compensation.
