Spinal cord injuries may occur as a consequence of a motor vehicle crash, work-related incident or slip and fall accident.  Of course, there are also additional types of circumstances that may lead to spinal cord injuries.  Without question, the physical damages alone can be overwhelming and debilitating.  A spinal cord injury may further cause emotional harm to the injured party and family members.  We strongly suggest seeking the advice of an experienced spinal cord injury lawyer if you or a loved one has suffered a spinal cord injury.

For more than 55 years, Munley Law has handled a multitude of cases involving catastrophic claims. Our office is conveniently located in Scranton and our attorneys are licensed to practice in Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey. We have successfully represented spinal cord victims in all three jurisdictions.

What Constitutes a Spinal Cord Injury?

The National Institutes of Health provides information concerning spinal cord injuries. They may occur as a result of harm to the spinal cord itself.  Alternatively, they may represent damage to the nerves at the end of the spinal column. Circumstances may be further impeded by bone fragmentation, nerve impingement or other complications. In rare cases, the spinal cord may actually be severed. The resultant damage of any spinal cord injury affects the communication between the brain and the body. Some of the disabilities that may occur as the result of a spinal cord insult include the following:

  • Quadriplegia: Paralysis to all four limbs and the torso. This includes partial paralysis as well as all total paralysis. This type of injury generally represents an injury to the cervical (neck region) of the spine. Some claimants may also experience difficulty breathing on their own, speaking and experience bowel incontinence.
  • Paraplegia: Individuals who have experienced lower spinal cord injuries may become paraplegic as a result of the insult. This may represent legs and hips paralysis and could also include issues with bladder and bowel control.
  • Other Spinal Cord Injuries: A spinal cord injury at any level may cause a degree of paralysis. The nerves in the affected areas may have a severe impact on multiple parts of the body.

The level of care associated with spinal cord injuries can be devastating.  Obviously, they are also life changing as it may be necessary to retain home care and become totally disabled.  It is extremely important to retain legal counsel who recognizes the lifetime effects of this type of injury.

    My car accident last year kept me out of work for over a month. I was afraid of losing my job, the medical bills were piling up and the insurance company would not return my calls. I made the right decision after calling Caroline Munley. She fought the insurance company and helped me get back on my feet. I wholeheartedly endorse her. Personal Injury Client

Marion has distinguished herself as an inspirational leader who gives of her time for the greater good of all. She is a hard worker accomplishing great results for her clients. She also is willing to share her knowledge with any and all attorneys who have dedicated their practice to representing clients who are the victims of highway crashes.
