SPINAL CORD INJURIES LAWYERS
The spinal cord is a long bundle of nerves that runs from the brain down a part of your spine. Typically, spinal cord injuries are the result of a fractured or dislocated vertebra, based on research from the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM). The spinal cord carries signals that determine the body’s movement and feelings. If these signals are interrupted from an injury, the body can lose sensory and motor abilities.
If you believe that you have suffered a spinal cord trauma, your first action should be to seek medical treatment at once. From there, you can obtain quality legal guidance from Werner Law Firm’s experienced spinal cord injuries lawyers.
