Spinal Cord Injuries

Our NC attorneys provide experienced representation for spinal cord injury victims

Spinal cord injury (SCI) can be debilitating and create a variety of challenges for those who are injured and their families. Each year in the United States, about 11,000 people sustain spinal cord injuries. About 250,000 Americans are living with spinal cord injury.

Automobile accidents are common causes of spinal cord injuries (37 percent of SCI victims were involved in a motor vehicle accident). Falls account for 21 percent of all spinal cord injuries.

A spinal cord injury can be devastating. Like other catastrophic injuries such as burn injuries or traumatic brain injuries, a spinal cord injury can result in significant losses, both economic (such as loss of wages) and non-economic (such as pain and suffering). It may be important to have experienced legal representation to ensure your rights are being protected. If you or a loved one sustained a SCI due to the negligence of another individual or entity, don't hesitate to contact an experienced spinal cord injury lawyer in North Carolina. At the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin, we try to protect the legal rights of our clients coping with all types of serious injuries, including SCI. Call 1-866-900-7078 for a free case evaluation.

A closer look at spinal cord injury and paralysis

Spinal cord injury typically results in paralysis, which may involve the loss of movement in all four limbs (quadriplegia) or loss of movement in the lower half of the body (paraplegia). It's common for people coping with SCI to experience significant financial challenges. They may not be able to work in the same capacity as before the accident. They may need compensation to cover long-term care, including physical therapy and rehabilitation. Housing renovations, such as a wheelchair ramp, may be required.
