Lafayette Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers Serving Clients Throughout the Acadiana Area
We tend to think of a spinal cord injury occurring because of catastrophic accidents, such as an 18-wheeler crash. However, an injured spine can occur because of medical malpractice. Such injuries are often catastrophic; victims are frequently paralyzed to some degree, with breathing and motor skills impairments. A full recovery from a spinal cord injury is unlikely. Rather, victims undergo extensive rehabilitation and therapy to learn how to cope with their changed circumstances. Life is never the same for people with a spinal cord injury.
When this catastrophic injury is due to medical mistakes caused by negligence or misconduct, it is somehow worse. People undergoing medical procedures involving the spinal cord have the right to expect a certain standard of care.
