The attorneys at our Reno, Nevada, law office recognize acutely how important it is to make sure that a victim of a spinal cord injury gets compensation for all of his losses and expenses.
This blog has previously discussed how our law firm offers advice and representation to victims of spinal cord injuries. Whether these people suffer paralysis or, luckily, are still somewhat mobile, they will no doubt face a number of different profound challenges in their lives.
Many people in Reno, Nevada probably recognize paralysis as a symptom of a serious injury to the spinal cord. The loss of mobility is indeed part and parcel of the vast majority of spinal cord injuries, and it alone can spell a lifetime of pain and suffering.
Many people in the Reno area have probably heard that motorcyclists who wear helmets are making a valuable investment. Helmets do indeed save lives and prevent traumatic brain injuries. It is a good idea for a motorcyclist who wants to travel Nevada's roads to wear one.
Many people in the Reno area probably know that a spinal cord injury is a serious affair that can cause paralysis and other debilitating conditions that can last for the rest of the victim's life. What some might not realize, however, is that the onset of the most serious symptoms of a spinal cord injury is not always immediate. As such, there may be some misunderstanding that if a person seems fine right after an accident, then there is no cause to be concerned about spinal cord injuries.
A previous post on this blog talked about the common causes of wrong way accidents on the freeway and other multi-lane highways. While one might think that a wrong way accident is a never event, in that it should never happen, they are more common than one might think.
As this blog has discussed on previous occasions, spinal cord injuries are very serious and will usually mean the victim will have a life time of medical rehabilitation and other forms of pain and suffering.

As this blog has discussed on previous occasions, even relatively minor spinal cord injuries have serious and lifelong consequences for their victims.
