Kirby & Holt - North Carolina Spinal Cord Injury Attorneys
Many serious accidents involving blunt force, falls, or high-speed collisions result in spine trauma. Injuries to the spinal cord caused by compression or fractures of the vertebrae often result in paralysis to some extent. Prompt and effective treatment is absolutely essential to lessen the risk of further damage to the spinal cord and the resulting loss of sensation and motion in the limbs.
