Helping Victims of Spinal Cord Injuries in St. Louis

Spinal cord injuries are among the most catastrophic of injuries. They affect more than mobility; they can make it impossible for families to return to the lives they once had. They require significantly more care than almost any other type of injury, creating a substantial and lasting financial burden on families.

The Hayden Law Firm St. Louis Accident & Injury Lawyers works with families throughout Missouri and Illinois whose loved ones suffered long-term and permanent injury to the spine and spinal cord. We will work to establish the cause of your injuries and the overall effect on your life and your loved ones, and present those findings to ensure you get the full compensation you deserve.

Types of Spine and Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries include:

  • Cervical injuries
  • Thoracic injuries
  • Lumbar injuries
  • Sacral injuries
  • Coccygeal injuries

These injuries can lead to paralysis such as paraplegia and quadriplegia (tetraplegia). However, not all spinal injuries involve the cord. Examples of non-spinal cord injuries include:

  • Herniated discs
  • Compression fractures
  • Vertebrae dislocation
  • Disc dislocation
  • Prolapsed discs
  • Spinal stenosis

Some of these injuries can be treated with medication and therapy, but others may require surgical intervention.

Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries can occur in any type of accident, but motor vehicle accidents are a major driver of these catastrophic injuries. Other causes include:

  • Falls from heights
  • Crushing injuries
  • Assaults
  • Sports injuries
  • Defective products
  • Surgical errors
  • Workplace accidents

No matter the cause of your spinal cord injury, you should not have to bear the burden alone if it was caused by someone else’s negligence. We will fight to make sure you and your loved ones have the financial resources you need to cover the costs of medical expenses, rehabilitation, and in-home care now and in the future.
