Spinal Cord Injuries at Work
Orlando Workers' Comp Attorney
Injuries to the spinal cord can be among the most devastating types of
injuries. If you have hurt your back and / or spinal cord at work in Florida,
you are protected under Florida law. Our
Orlando workers' compensation lawyer can get you compensation for a spinal cord injury.
Understanding Spinal Cord Injuries
The spinal cord is a tube of about a foot or a foot and a half long that
encases the nerves that connect the brain's commands to the body's
There are four sections of the spinal cord:
- The area nearest the neck is the cervical section
- The area from the collar bone level to mid-back is the thoracic section
- The lower end contains the lumbar and sacral sections
This explains why an injury to the spinal cord can impact more than your
back. For example, an injury to the upper cervical section could damage
nerves that affect the hands and arms. If you have suffered a spinal cord
injury, it is very important that you are able to receive the full medical
care you need. This may include ongoing rehabilitative therapy. Our workers'
comp lawyer can help you get the benefits you deserve and need in order
to obtain full treatment.
