Experienced Morgantown Back Injury Attorneys

A spinal cord injury doesn't always mean total or partial paralysis or a paralyzing injury. Many spine injuries suffered in accidents go undetected as hairline fractures on the vertebrae. There may be only minor symptoms, which may go away over time, leaving the victim to believe that no serious injury occurred. In time, however, even a minor spinal cord injury can progress to a serious problem, requiring surgery and years of medical treatment. At its worst, a spinal cord injury can progress to paralysis and organ damage.

No Attorneys' Fees Unless You Win · Former Insurance Defense Attorneys

If you or a loved one has been in an accident and is noticing back pain or other nerve damage, make sure a medical specialist considers the possibility of a spinal cord injury. The West Virginia spinal cord injury lawyers of the  Robinette Legal Group have extensive experience representing clients involved in spinal cord injury claims.

We are a team of former insurance defense attorneys who now represent plaintiffs injured because of someone else's negligence. We use our courtroom experience and knowledge of the insurance litigation system to provide vigorous, effective representation for people who need to recover full and fair money damages for catastrophic injuries such as spinal cord injuries.

Spinal cord injuries include:

  • Herniated discs: Fluid in the discs between any vertebrae ruptures, causing partial arm paralysis and pain
  • Fractured vertebrae: Can happen anywhere along the spinal column. Individual vertebrae break or disconnect, leading to possible paralysis below the fracture.
  • Cervical injuries: Injuries to the spine near the neck usually result in full or partial paralysis. A broken neck is a type of cervical injury.
  • Thoracic injuries: Mid-back area of the spine. Often results in paralysis or partial immobility of arms and legs.
  • Lumbar and sacral injuries: Lower spine injuries often result in mobility problems or paralysis of hips, as well as effects on the urinary tract and anus.

Spinal cord injuries don't go away on their own. If you have been injured, you may face a lifetime of medical treatment and financial loss. Our firm will fight hard to help you recover the full and fair money damages you are entitled to.
