Connecticut Spine Injury Lawyer
Spinal Cord Injury Cases
Injuries to the spine are incredibly devastating; victims often suffer
partial or total paralysis, and many will live with life-altering conditions,
such as chronic pain, nerve damage, and other complications. The physical,
emotional, and financial costs of such an injury are exorbitant, and many
victims are unsure of how they will be able to move forward or where to turn.
If you or your loved one suffered a spinal cord injury due to someone else’s
negligent, reckless, or wrongful conduct, you could have grounds for a
personal injury claim. Our Connecticut spine injury lawyers are ready to help you fight for
justice and the fair compensation you are owed. At Carter Mario Law Firm,
we have been successfully representing victims of negligence throughout
the state since 1989, recovering hundreds of millions of dollars for our
clients in that time. We understand the challenges you are facing, and
we know how to take on the liable party’s insurance provider so
that you can focus on getting the medical attention you need.

Types of Spine Injuries
Spine injuries are classified according to location, type, and severity.
Generally speaking, there are two classifications of spinal cord injuries:
complete and incomplete. A complete spinal cord injury results in the
total severing of communication between the brain and the body below the
point of injury. This often results in total paralysis, loss of function,
and loss of movement below the injury. An incomplete spinal cord injury,
on the other hand, results in partial communication between the brain
and the body below the point of injury. A person with an incomplete spinal
cord injury may retain some functioning and motor capabilities below the injury.
Some of the most common types of spine injuries include:
- Brown-Sequard syndrome
- Anterior cord syndrome
- Central cord syndrome
- Herniated disc (also known as a “slipped,” “ruptured,”
or “bulged” disc)
- Nerve damage
These and other spine injuries can have serious effects, ranging from paralysis
to severe chronic pain to incontinence, sexual dysfunction, and more.
What Are the Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries?
Spine injuries can occur due to a variety of reasons, but they most commonly
result from traumatic events.
Some of the most common causes of spinal cord injuries include:
Sadly, many of these traumatic events are entirely avoidable. All too often,
these incidents are the direct result of negligence; when this is the
case, victims and/or their loved ones can bring claims against the liable
parties and seek recovery for their losses.
How to Determine Liability in a Spine Injury Case
Determining liability in a spinal cord injury case generally involves identifying
how the injury occurred and who was at fault. For example, if you suffered
a spine injury in a car accident caused by a
drunk driver, you are entitled to file a claim against the drunk driver’s insurance
provider. If you were assaulted on a commercial property due to
negligent security, you could have grounds for a premises liability claim against the property
owner or manager.
Our firm can provide the personalized legal guidance you need. Our Connecticut
spinal cord injury lawyers often work with a team of accident reconstructionists,
expert witnesses, medical professionals, economists, and other specialists
to identify the cause of your injuries and build a case aimed at securing
maximum compensation for your losses. This might include compensation
for things like current and future medical expenses, lost income or wages,
lost future earnings, disability, pain and suffering, lost quality of
life, and more.
