Helping the Injured, It's All We Do

Workplace Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers in Orange County

Fight for Your Right to Workers' Compensation Benefits

One of the worst types of injuries that a person can suffer in a workplace accident is a spinal cord injury. Since the spinal cord is the main highway for the brain to transmit signals to the rest of the body, any damage to this group of nerves can result in serious damage to a person’s motor skills and rob a person of their mobility. To make matters worse, medical bills and the inability to work after a spinal cord injury can put a person in a serious financial predicament.

If you have suffered a spinal cord injury in an on-the-job accident, an Orange County lawyer from Alvandi Law Group can fight to help you secure your entitled monetary benefits to alleviate the financial burden of your injuries.

Contact our firm today to take the first step towards filing a claim.

What Are the Different Types of Spinal Cord Injuries?

Spinal cord injuries (SCIs) can vary widely in their severity and impact on a person's bodily functions. They are typically classified based on the level of the injury on the spinal cord and the extent of impairment. Here are the main types of spinal cord injuries:

  • Tetraplegia (Quadriplegia): This type of injury affects the cervical region of the spinal cord, which is the uppermost part of the spine near the neck. Tetraplegia results in paralysis of all four limbs and often affects the person's ability to breathe independently, as the muscles that control breathing may be impaired.
  • Paraplegia: Paraplegia occurs when the injury affects the thoracic, lumbar, or sacral regions of the spinal cord, which are lower down the spine. This type of injury typically results in paralysis of the lower half of the body, including the legs and possibly some or all of the trunk.
  • Incomplete Spinal Cord Injury: An incomplete spinal cord injury means that the spinal cord is partially damaged, resulting in varying degrees of impairment. Incomplete injuries can lead to a wide range of symptoms, depending on the location and severity of the damage, and may allow for some degree of recovery or function below the level of the injury.
  • Complete Spinal Cord Injury: A complete spinal cord injury occurs when the spinal cord is fully severed or damaged, leading to a total loss of function and sensation below the level of the injury. Complete injuries are less likely to result in significant recovery of function below the injury site.
  • Spinal Cord Contusion: A contusion is a bruise on the spinal cord, often caused by a sudden impact or trauma. This type of injury can result in temporary or permanent impairment of motor function, sensation, or both, depending on the severity and location of the contusion.
  • Spinal Cord Compression: Compression of the spinal cord can occur due to conditions such as herniated discs, tumors, or spinal stenosis. This type of injury can cause symptoms such as pain, weakness, numbness, or tingling in the affected area and may require surgical intervention to relieve pressure on the spinal cord.

Each type of spinal cord injury can have different implications for the individual's mobility, sensation, and overall quality of life. 

Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries in the Workplace

A person can suffer a spinal cord injury at work under a variety of circumstances. In many cases, spinal cord damage results from accidents caused by another party’s negligence, such as a supervisor’s failure to implement certain safety protocols.

Mild spinal cord damage such as disk injuries can result in severe pain and loss of feeling in certain areas of the body, while severe damage can result in paraplegia or death.

Spinal cord injuries can result from the following:

If you have suffered a spinal cord injury at work, it is imperative you inform your employer and seek medical attention immediately. Under your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance, you may be able to recover compensation for your medical treatments, lost wages, and rehabilitation costs. Our attorneys can use our skills and knowledge to help you obtain the monetary assistance you deserve to help meet your needs.
