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 functions.

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.
