Over 40 years of experience on your side

More than 200,000 Americans are currently living with spinal cord injuries, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Approximately 12,000 to 20,000 new cases occur every year. Motor vehicle accidents, including car crashes, truck accidents and motorcycle wrecks, are the most common cause of spinal cord injuries, accounting for more than 35 percent of all cases. Other frequent causes include falls, medical malpractice, violence and sports injuries.


The spinal cord plays a very important role in conveying information between the brain and the rest of the body. When the spinal column, which surrounds the spinal cord, suffers damage, serious neurological impairments can result. The type and the severity of the injury depend on where the trauma occurs. Some impairments are temporary, while others may last a lifetime.


Whether the victim suffers a serious fall or motorcycle injuries, the most common spinal cord injury is paralysis, which can range from incomplete to complete paraplegia. With complete paralysis, the individual loses all feeling and ability to move voluntarily below the location of the injury. In incomplete paralysis, the person maintains some functioning below the site of the injury. The most severe form of paralysis, quadriplegia or tetraplegia, affects all four limbs and the torso.


Accident victims lucky enough to survive spinal cord injuries often face a host of other medical issues, including respiratory, cardiovascular, urinary or gastrointestinal complications. These catastrophic injuries may also lead to emotional problems, including depression and anxiety.

Spinal cord injuries can affect every aspect of daily life, from holding a job to driving to interacting with family and friends. Many individuals also lose the ability to independently care for themselves. At the W. Ware Morrison Law Group, our injury lawyers can help accident victims and their families obtain the care needed to move forward with their lives.


When someone else's wrongful or negligent conduct causes a spinal cord injury, accident victims and their loved ones can pursue a personal injury claim. Potential compensation includes:
