Spinal Cord Injuries
Our Santa Clarita Lawyers Understand Your Injury Case
Spinal cords are a long bundle of nerves that runs from the brain down
a part of your spine. Typically, spinal cord injuries are the result of
a fractured or dislocated vertebra, based on research from the U.S. National
Library of Medicine (NLM).
The spinal cord carries signals that determine the body's movement
and feelings. If these signals are interrupted from an injury, the body
can lose sensory and motor abilities.
In some cases, spinal cord injuries can result in permanent damage to the
central nervous system, including:
- Paralysis of arm
- Paralysis of leg
If you believe that you have suffered a spinal cord injury, your first
action should be to seek medical treatment at once. From there, you can
obtain quality legal guidance from our legal team at The Werner Law Firm.

How do spinal cord injuries occur?
In most cases, spinal cord injuries result from a traumatic injury. Although
workers in demanding jobs, such as the construction industry, are most
likely to suffer a spinal cord injury, they can occur in a wide range of ways.
Spinal cord injuries often spend weeks in the hospital and longer than
a month in rehabilitation. Many individuals will then live the remainder
of their life in a care facility. It is clear to see the impact that a
spinal cord injury can have on the injured party and his or her family.
For that reason, our firm desires to represent your case with every resource
and strength that we have available.
Our focus is on helping clients obtain the full and fair compensation that
they deserve from their case so that they can concentrate on physically
and emotionally healing.
