A spinal cord or back injury can have a devastating effect on your life. In addition to leaving you with physical pain, it may inhibit your ability to work, perform everyday tasks, and live an independent lifestyle. If you have suffered from a spinal cord or back injury that was caused by another party’s negligent behavior, it is in your best interest to consult a back injury lawyer at Studinski Law, LLC. We can handle the legal aspects of your claim so that you can focus on recovering.
Spinal cord and back injuries may result from a variety of accidents. Whether you are injured in a work-related incident, a car or truck crash, or on someone’s premises, the spinal cord injury lawyers at Studinski Law, LLC can determine the cause, who is truly responsible, and may be able to help you collect compensation.
At Studinski Law, we represent clients in a wide variety of spinal cord and back injuries. With offices in Plover and Marshfield, we serve injured clients throughout Wisconsin, including Wisconsin Rapids, Stevens Point, and Waupaca.
Some of the most common types of spinal cord and back injuries that we see include:
If you experience aching muscles, bladder or bowel problems, a fever, shooting pain, a restricted range of motion, or numbness, weakness, or tingling in your legs, you may be suffering from one of these injuries and should seek medical attention immediately.
A doctor will likely use an imaging exam such as an x-ray, MRI, CT scan, or bone scan to diagnose your spinal cord or back injury. Once the diagnosis has been made, a treatment plan will be designed and may include conservative measures such as rest, medication, epidural steroid injections, stretching, physical therapy, and heating pads or ice. In more serious cases, surgery may be necessary.
Although some spinal cord and back injuries are minor, others can be life-altering and hinder your life for years to come. You may lose control over voluntary movement and muscles in your body and may have a hard time breathing without mechanical intervention or controlling your bowel and bladder.
Osteoporosis, gall bladder and renal stones, limb stiffness, and increased reflexes are several other common complications of back and spinal cord injuries that you may face. Additionally, you may suffer from sexual dysfunction and become more susceptible to bedsores, lung infections, bladder infections, and other serious conditions.
A spinal cord or back injury will likely leave you feeling overwhelmed because of the high costs of your medical bills, lost income, home modifications and the need for ongoing care from a variety of medical professionals such as home care aides and physical therapists.
If you’ve suffered from a spinal cord or back injury that was caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be able to recover compensation for past and future medical expenses, wage loss, pain and suffering, emotional distress, disability, disfigurement, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of earning capacity, and loss of society and companionship.
Our spinal cord injury lawyers know how to discuss these complicated injuries with medical professionals, and will perform the research, contact the witnesses involved, and gather every piece of available evidence to increase your chances of securing full and fair compensation in what may be a complex personal injury lawsuit.
