Paralysis and Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal Cord Injuries (SCI) & Paralysis

Paraplegia and Quadriplegia


Arguably the most well-known case of accidental spinal cord injury happened to actor, producer and screenwriter Christopher Reeve when he fell from his horse during an equestrian event in 1995. The cervical spine injury that resulted from his fall rendered him a quadriplegic. Traumatic spinal cord injuries and paralysis can result from any occurrence that crushes, fractures, dislocates or otherwise damages vertebrae, including:

  • Automobile or truck accidents
  • Motorcycle crashes
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Sports injuries
  • Slip-and-fall situations
  • Construction site accidents
  • Boating accidents
  • Work-related accidents
  • Accidents aboard a cruise ship

Spinal cord injuries can also result from less-frequent events such as:

  • Injury due to product defects
  • Gunshot or knife wounds
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Airline crashes

Linking a traumatic spinal cord injury to the responsible party who caused the accident is integral to your case. By identifying and working with subject-matter experts—including neurologists, neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons—Lipcon’s attorneys have developed highly effective methods for representing victims of neck and spinal cord injuries.
