Spinal Cord Injury
Tulsa Lawyers for Spinal Cord Injury Claims
A spinal cord injury happens in an instant and changes your life forever. Depending on where the spine damage occurred, the injury can result in permanent paralysis from the waist down (paraplegia) or the neck down (quadriplegia or tetraplegia).
About 11,000 people in the U.S. suffer spinal cord injuries each year. Motor vehicle crashes, acts of violence, falls and sports accidents are the leading causes of spinal cord injury.
