An Attorney That You Can Always Talk To

Get Help From An Experienced Spinal Cord Injury Attorney In St. Petersburg

Spinal cord injuries often result in paralysis below the point of impact on the spine. When the injury occurs in or near the neck, the victim may become quadriplegic (total paralysis in all four limbs). Injuries in the lower spine can lead to paraplegia (paralysis of just the lower extremities).

Needless to say, spinal cord injuries can be devastating. The survivor may require a wheelchair, permanent caregiving services, multiple medications, ongoing physical and occupational therapy, and frequent doctor visits and hospitalizations. The cost of treating and caring for a spinal cord injury can be enormous. This is where I can help. I am attorney John R. Mathias, and I help victims of catastrophic injuries get the financial compensation they need now and in the future.

The Serious Nature Of Spinal Cord Injuries

The nervous system in the body is like an electric circuit, and your spine is the major artery for sending signals. After you have suffered a spinal cord injury in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you may have the right to file a personal injury claim for damages. Contact The Law Offices of John R. Mathias, P.A., for advice and help after an accident such as:

After a mild spinal injury, when there is trauma to a disk or part of a nerve is compressed, there can be pain, numbness or a bothersome burning sensation. Pain management can be a great challenge. Some survivors struggle with opioid dependency for a long time after this type of accident. In a more serious case, nerve damage can be permanent, preventing your brain from sending the necessary signals for movement and other functions to other parts of your body.
