North Carolina Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers

A spinal cord injury is one of the most devastating injuries a person can endure. Because the spinal cord houses the body’s central nervous system, damage to the spinal cord can affect the victim’s movement, sensation, and everyday functioning.

If you or your loved one suffered a catastrophic injury due to another person or party’s careless, reckless, or negligent actions, reach out to the North Carolina spinal cord injury lawyers at Lanier Law Group. We have the experience, skill, and resources to determine who is liable for your injuries and damages, and we are prepared to fight tirelessly for the maximum allowable compensation in your case.

Schedule a free initial consultation at one of our multiple office locations. We also provide phone consultations and can travel to you if needed. Call (855) 757-4204 or contact us online now. 

Types of Spinal Cord Injuries

Generally speaking, there are two primary types of spinal cord injuries:

  • Complete: When there is permanent damage to the spinal cord, the injury is categorized as “complete.”
  • Incomplete: Partial spinal cord damage is considered by medical practitioners as an “incomplete” spinal cord injury.

The effects of a spinal cord injury depend on whether it is a complete or incomplete spinal cord injury, as well as where the injury occurred on the spine. Some spinal cord injuries result in loss of motor function and sensation; others may result in partial function or partial sensation.

Some common effects of spinal cord injuries include:

  • Paralysis, including paraplegia and quadriplegia
  • Partial or total loss of movement and/or sensation
  • Loss of bladder and/or bowel control
  • Loss of sexual function
  • Weakness in the lower half of the body (hips, legs, etc.)
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Nerve pain and/or damage
  • Chronic pain, headaches, and muscle pain
  • Loss of fertility
  • Increased risk of infection and/or pneumonia (usually associated with respirator use)
  • Personality changes/changes in mood

Compensation in Spinal Cord Injury Cases

Catastrophic injury victims, including those who suffered spinal cord injuries, generally require more extensive medical treatment than victims of other less severe injuries. The cost of such treatment can place an immense financial burden on victims and their families, along with the myriad other challenges spinal cord injury victims face—from learning to use a wheelchair to being unable to work to needing to rely on others for everyday tasks.

At Lanier Law Group, we understand your unique situation and needs. Our North Carolina spinal cord injury lawyers are committed to leaving no stone unturned in their pursuit of maximum financial compensation for their clients. We can work to gather all available evidence, such as medical records, to build a case that outlines not only your immediate needs but your likely future expenses and ongoing costs as well. Our goal is to help ensure you are fairly compensated and that you are able to live as normal a life as possible after your injury.

    "20 out of 10 stars."
    There are times in your life you are so hurt and feel life has a grudge against you. Nothing in your life is going right. I lost the most important person in my life to death, of which I knew mistakes were made because I witnessed it with my own eyes. When you contact a law group you most of the time get all business and a matter of fact conversation. I want all to know that from the first phone call they listened to my lengthy story, sobbing most of the time with so much compassion. They never made any promises but offered assurances that no stone would be unturned. They fulfilled every word they said. They restored faith that I had lost. Until you are in a position like mine you can never know how invaluable Lanier Law Group is. They were wonderful while maintaining their professionalism. They treated me like a family member. They really do care about their clients. But most of all they are the best at what they do. I worked in the court system for years so I knew how attorneys and law firms basically operated. Understanding the law and it's interpretation is the ultimate key to winning any case. Also know that if an attorney/attorneys study and review your case and know that you don't have a chance in a court of law and are big enough to tell you that instead of giving you false hope, you then my friend have a group with valuable shared values. I have so much respect for everyone in this Law Group. I recommend Lanier Law Group, P.A. to anyone who needs representation, they are in your corner. 20 out of 10 stars.

    "Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members"
    I started working with Lanier Law Group in 2020 on my Social Security Disability case. They from start to finish were awesome. My case manager Janet Hanks and attorney, Ashley Sappenfield were always available to answer all my questions. I did not have to do much but sit back and let them handle whatever was needed. My case took too long (2 years) and if I did not have Janet and Ashley My case would still not be approved. I would recommend Lanier to anyone to get the job done and approved. Do not go to another firm with your case, who promise the world and do not see it to completion and do not think another firms would have worked as hard as they did on my case. Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members to handle any cases of this type and other legal services they provide. They went above and beyond!

    "So thankful for your expertise and professionalism"
    Mrs. Gonzalez did an awesome job of explaining everything in detail and keeping me informed on the status of my case. Despite poor customer service with the insurance company, Mrs. Gonzalez was able to fix what they could not. Mrs. Gonzalez was very helpful with helping me understand things that I was not aware of when dealing with insurance claims. I am so thankful for her expertise and professionalism.
