About Spinal Cord Injuries
The spinal cord comprises a column of nerve tissue that is protected by the spine’s bones. Those nerves deliver messages between your brain and the rest of your body. A spinal cord injury could destroy or damage your brain’s ability to communicate with your body.
When someone suffers a spinal cord injury, the part of the body that is controlled by the affected area of the spinal cord risks losing its ability to function the way it should.
Many spinal cord injuries lead to permanent paralysis or disability. The closer the injury occurs to your head, the larger the area of the body it will affect.
At Dansker&Aspromonte, we litigate claims throughout the five boroughs of New York City to help clients recover expenses for:
- Lost wages
- Medical bills
Our attorneys have over 35 years of experience and are here to help you with your spinal cord injury claim every step of the way. Let us handle the complex legal matters while you concentrate on your road to recovery.
What Causes Spinal Cord Injuries?
Spinal cord injuries and the paralysis that often follows are typically caused by traumatic, sudden blows to the spin. The blow will fracture, crush, dislocate or compress the vertebrae. The most common causes of spinal cord injuries include:
- Slips and falls
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Sports injuries
- Violent encounters
- Construction accidents
We have ample experience representing trade workers, too, who have been involved in spinal cord injury accidents.
A spinal cord injury can occur anywhere, be it outdoors, at home or at work. If your spinal cord injury was the result of someone else’s negligent or reckless actions, you could be eligible to file a lawsuit. No matter how your spinal cord injury was sustained, be it a construction accident, on unsafe premises, a motor vehicle accident, or even as a result of a defective product, you will be able to bring a claim against those who were responsible.
The attorneys at Dansker&Aspromonte have helped many victims obtain fair compensation for:

The Consequences of a Spinal Cord Injury
The effects of your spinal cord injury risk extending beyond any obvious physical impairments. Getting used to life with a disability, very often confined to a wheelchair, is not at all easy. Victims will usually experience a great deal of emotional pain and suffering and worry about how the injury will affect their and their family’s lifestyle as well as their personal relationships and, importantly, their financial situation.
Emotional stress and grieving are completely common. The consequences of a spinal injury can include:
- Quadriplegia – this is complete paralysis of all four of your extremities
- Paraparesis – a partial paralysis of your lower extremities
- Quadriparesis – the partial paralysis of all four extremities
- Paraplegia – a complete paralysis of the lower extremities and often the lower trunk
