When negligence causes back and spinal cord injuries, trust the Colorado Springs Back and Spinal Cord Injury Attorney with Shakeshaft-Gorman Law Firm, LLP to help you get the compensation you deserve.

Catastrophic and debilitating, back and spinal cord injuries can significantly impact people’s ability to work, get around in their daily life and even live independently. In the most severe cases of back and spinal cord injuries, people may be left facing an impaired quality of life that could end up having psychological impacts, like depression.

What may be just as distressing as the consequences of back and spinal cord injuries is the fact that, in many cases, these injuries could have been prevented – or, at the very least, been mitigated – if others had been as responsible, diligent and careful as they should have been in a given situation.

In cases when negligence or recklessness has contributed to severe back and spinal cord injuries, injured people should know that they can turn to the Colorado Springs Back and Spinal Cord Injury Attorney with Shakeshaft-Gorman Law Firm, LLP to:

  • Defend their rights
  • Help them hold the negligent and responsible parties accountable
  • Assist them in obtaining the compensation they need and deserve so they can focus on their recovery and future.

When Negligence Causes Back and Spinal Cord Injuries

As with traumatic brain injuries, back and spinal cord injuries are often caused by negligence, carelessness and/or recklessness. Specifically, the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center (NSPISC) has found that:

  • Motor vehicle accidents account for more than 36 percent of all new cases of spinal cord injuries in the U.S.
  • Falls contribute to more than 28 percent of all spinal cord injuries.
  • Violence, such as assault, is responsible for causing more than 14 percent of all new cases of spinal cord injuries.
  • Sports, specifically contact sports, cause more than 9 percent of all spinal cord injuries.

Impacts of Back and Spinal Cord Injuries

Regardless of the specific forms of negligence that cause back and spinal cord injuries, the effects of these injuries will depend on the area of the back or spinal cord that has been damaged, as well as the extent of this damage. In the worst cases, the impacts of back and spinal cord injuries can result in:

  • Permanent loss of function and/or sensation in one or multiple limbs
  • The need for long-term (if not life-long) medical care, potentially even in-home care to help people complete common daily activities (like showering)
  • An inability to earn a living
  • Various other impacts to a person’s quality of life.
