Billings, Montana, Spinal Injuries Attorney

Various types of accidents can result in spinal injuries, and the consequences of a spinal cord injury can permanently change your life. If you or someone you love has suffered a spinal injury as a result of someone else's negligence, you or your loved one is likely entitled to compensation. The attorneys of Towe, Ball, Mackey, Sommerfeld & Turner, PLLP, are experienced in handling cases involving spinal injuries and at obtaining financial recoveries that fully compensate our clients for their injuries.

Aggressive Representation For Victims Of Serious Injuries

The spinal cord is responsible for carrying messages back and forth between our body and our brain. Because of this essential duty, any type of injury to the spinal cord can have serious and irreparable consequences. The severity and specific effects of a spine injury depend upon the particular type of harm and location of the injury. The spinal cord is usually damaged when some type of impact crushes vertebrae, the individual spinal bones that keep the cord protected.

A skilled personal injury attorney will explore the various ways a spine injury has affected and will continue to affect your life. He or she will then seek a financial recovery that will fully compensate you for those consequences. We recognize that nothing we do can reverse the injury you have suffered, but our lawyers understand spinal cord injuries and know what it takes to obtain the maximum compensation possible on your behalf.

The Possible Lifelong Effects Of Spinal Cord Damage

A spine injury can cause a wide array of damage, temporary and permanent. If the spinal cord remains intact after an accident or injury, the consequences may not last. However, when the spinal cord is severed, the effects are permanent. Paralysis is a very real concern of spine injuries. Depending on the location on the spine of the injury, a victim may be left paraplegic (paralyzed in the lower extremities) or quadriplegic (paralyzed in all four limbs). The most extreme spinal cord injuries can cause an individual to lose basic bodily functions, such as breathing, bladder control and sexual function.

Although automobile accidents are the most common cause of spine injuries, they can result from any number of causes. Spinal cord injuries can be caused by negligent medical treatment or a serious fall.
