Spinal Cord Injury
San Mateo Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers
Spinal cord injuries often occur in accidents where the bone disks of the spine – the vertebrae – are fractured or dislocated due to trauma. While the spinal cord may not be severed, pieces of vertebrae may impact nerves and cord tissues, disrupting signals between the spine and other parts of the body. In the worst cases, this damage can result in sensory loss and paralysis, including quadriplegia and paraplegia.
At the San Mateo law firm of Galine, Frye & Fitting, our spinal cord injury attorneys understand the damage and complications that can arise after serious spinal cord injuries and work hard to help our clients recover from those injuries. With more than 75 years of personal injury experience, our spinal cord lawyers have the legal knowledge to pursue benefits for current and future medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
