Spinal Cord Injury Attorney New Port Richey 

Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) is damage to the spinal cord that results in a loss of function such as mobility or feeling.

Frequent causes of damage are trauma (car accidents, gunshot wounds, falls, etc.) or disease (polio, spina bifida, Friedreich’s Ataxia, etc.). The spinal cord does not have to be severed in order for a loss of functioning to occur. In fact, for most people with SCI, the spinal cord is intact, but the damage to it results in loss of functioning.

Almost 11,000 people in the U.S. sustain a traumatic spinal cord injury each year, resulting in temporary or permanent sensory deficit, motor deficit, or bowel or bladder dysfunction. In this country, more than 250,000 people live with paralysis caused by SCI.

The personal injury lawyers at The Law Offices of Lucas | Magazine provide aggressive representation to victims of SCI in order to help them get the maximum compensation for their injuries.
