Paraplegic or quadriplegic injuries are often sustained in motor vehicle accidents when a vehicle occupant is ejected from the vehicle, often in a rollover. While you do not need to be ejected from the vehicle to sustain a spinal cord injury, the insurance company may argue that your failure to wear a seat belt caused or contributed to your spinal cord injury. If the insurer’s argument is proven, it reduces the amount of compensation that you can get from the insurance company. An experienced spinal cord injury lawyer will hire a biomechanical engineer to investigate the accident. The biomechanical engineer can assist in proving that quadriplegia or paraplegia may have resulted anyway, or that more serious injury or death would likely have occurred if your seat belt was worn.

A spinal cord injury occurs when the spinal cord or the nerve endings at its base are damaged. The spinal cord passes through the center of the vertebrae. Spinal stenosis occurs when the spinal canal narrows decreasing space for the spinal cord. This increases pressure on nerves coming off the spinal cord and can cause back pain, numbness, weakness or pain in the leg. Spinal cord injuries can result in paraplegia or quadriplegia.

Motor vehicle accidents, falls, and sports injuries are three of the most common causes of spinal cord injuries. Motor vehicle accidents are the most common cause.

When a disk or vertebrae is damaged, a procedure called a spinal fusion can prevent further damage or pressure on the spinal cord. A piece of bone, often from the patient’s pelvis, is removed. The disk is removed and the bone segment is placed between the vertebrae. Rods and screws are often used to strengthen the join and prevent the affected vertebrae from too much movement.

Joe and his assistants Nicole Adams, & Preet Saroya were my first Experience with having anything to do with lawyers and litigation. I'm very happy with how they handled my case and how they managed to get me a fair settlement in such an efficient and timely manner. I must admit they are some of the most honest people I've ever done business with in my entire life. They definitely take care of you and that is something I certainly appreciated about them while completing my case. There is this feeling of security that one gets when working with Joe and his crew that I have heard from other people isn't exactly present with other lawyers. They treat you like family and as happy as I am to be finished with my case these people have been a major part of my life since my motor-vehicle accident back in February 2017 I will definitely miss working with such talented people who I would be quite proud to consider my friends. And although I hope that this might be my absolute last accident, I know Joe and his colleagues are just a short phone call away if I get into another one. Thank you Joe, Nicole, & Preet from the bottom of my heart for being such honest, amazing, caring & talented Individuals. With the settlement you guys fought so hard to get me I have pretty much been given a fresh slate to build my life up upon. I've got you guys to thank for it, and had I never reached out to you guys I'm not sure where I would have ended up. I guess what I'm trying to say is thanks for helping me put my life back together and thanks for being such wonderful people. To anyone contemplating Joesph A. Nagy, Injury Law I must tell you that once you go to Joe and his Talented crew you'll not need any other lawyer for motor vehicle accidents and injury litigation again!!! these guys know their stuff!!! And I will never be able to thank Joe, Nicole, & Preet enough for the hard work they did to help me rebuild after my accident!!! and if you guys manage to read this comment I hope I've put down at least 10-15% of the thank yous I owe you guys for your incredible job on finding a very fair resolution to my case!!!
