Finding Financial Recovery After Spine and Spinal Cord Injuries
St. Augustine, Florida Back and Neck Injury Lawyers
Spinal cord injuries range from soft tissue “sprains” of connective tissue and spinal muscles to herniated disks, torn disks, spinal nerve compression, and damage to vertebrae, the bones that protect your spial cord.
Spine injuries cause serious pain and disability. While some people will suffer paralysis (paraplegia or quadriplegia) and loss of feeling, others will experience the other extreme, with constant pain and an inability to sit or even sleep comfortably.
Many people who think they have suffered a hip injury after a fall have, in fact, suffered a herniated disk or other injury in their lower back. This can cause leg weakness, pain from the buttocks down the legs, and numbness.
Few people who have suffered a spine or spinal cord injury realize that it will almost always get worse with time, either causing or occurring along with arthritis in the vertebrae. Although treatment can help them minimize pain and regain movement and independence in life, they will face ongoing medical problems. Getting full and fair financial recovery will be particularly important.

A Word about Whiplash
Some people think of whiplash as temporary soreness after a car accident, not as a serious, disabling injury. At The McLeod Firm we know differently. Whiplash is a spinal injury in which the muscles and connective tissue are torn away from the spinal column or otherwise injured. Scar tissue forms during the healing process, often causing neck and back pain and restricted movement for years.
We take your pain seriously. We listen to our clients, as well as the medical experts. We make sure your voice is heard in the process of bringing your claim to the insurance company, or to court.
Contact our law office for a free initial consultation. We handle all personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis; that means you pay no attorney’s fees until we recover money for you.
