Hi. I’m Attorney Rob Green with the law offices of Lucas, Green & Magazine. I want to take the time to make you aware of spinal cord injuries and the effects they can have on you.
Spinal cord injury, also known as SCI, is damage of the spinal cord that results in the loss of functioning, such as mobility or feeling. Frequent causes of SCI include trauma such as a car accident, gunshot wounds, severe falls and the like. Certain diseases including polio, spina bifida can also lead to spinal cord injury.
The spinal cord does not have to be severed in order for a loss of function to occur. In fact, for most people with SCI, the spinal cord is in fact intact, but the damage results in the loss of function.
Approximately 11,000 people a year in the United States sustain a traumatic spinal cord injury each year that results in temporary or permanent sensory deficit, motor deficit or bowel and bladder dysfunction.
If you or someone you know suffers from SCI, please contact the Law Offices of Lucas, Green and Magazine at (727) 849-5353.
