164123152A spinal cord injury can have a devastating effect on your ability to function physically and on your quality of life. Spinal cord injuries may cause anything from chronic pain to partial loss of mobility to widespread paralysis (tetraplegia) that leaves you bedridden.

The New York personal injury lawyers of Hecht, Kleeger & Damashek, P.C., work with victims and the families of spinal cord injury victims who have suffered traumatic injuries caused by others’ negligence in car accidents, construction accidents and other types of personal injury accidents. In many cases, spinal cord injuries are caused by a person hitting their head in a manner that wrenches the neck or back, or by a direct blow to the neck, back or spine. We understand that a spinal cord injury is a life-changing event, and you and your family will need every resource available to you.

With that in mind, we have created a Spine Injury Resource Center that extends the reach of our assistance by offering more detailed information about living with spinal cord injury, as about 273,000 people in the United States do. The New York area is fortunate to have several well-regarded rehabilitation centers for spinal cord injury patients and a variety of community-based support groups.
