Spinal Cord Injuries

Boston MA Spinal Cord Injury Litigation

Boston Spinal Cord Injury Litigation

People who are suffering from a catastrophic injury, such as a spinal cord injury, are dealing with much more than pain, medical bills, and lost wages. As a personal injury lawyer with more than 30 years of experience, Arthur F. Licata comprehends that people suffering from a spinal cord injury are coping with a whole new way of life - a life that limits or altogether restricts mobility.

Arthur F. Licata, P.C. represents people in the Boston, Massachusetts area, New York, and throughout New England who have suffered a spinal cord injury or other serious neck or back injury as the result of another's negligent actions.

A spinal cord injury can result from a number of factors: A herniated disc or bulging disc can cause the spinal cord to become compressed or pinched; a dislocated vertebra can cause the spinal cord to become vulnerable to an increased likelihood of damage; a fractured vertebra can cause the spinal cord to become pinched or severed. Whether the damage is caused by a car accident, a football injury, or a fall down the stairs, the resulting injuries are life-changing.

Low back injuries: The spinal cord connects nerves from throughout the body to the brain. When severe injuries in the lower back cause spinal cord damage, all limbs below the level of injury to the spine may be affected. Injured persons may suffer nerve damage, loss of sensation, or complete or partial paralysis of the lower extremities (anything below the level of injury). This is known as paraplegia. Many people will require the use of a wheelchair for the remainder of their life.

Upper back and neck injuries: The higher the level of the injury, the more life-altering for the injured person. People who sustain spinal cord damage in the upper spine or neck may suffer from quadriplegia: partial or complete loss of sensation and/or function in both the upper and lower extremities. Not only have quadriplegics lost the use of their legs, but potentially also the use of their arms and hands.

Mr. Licata understands clients coping with a spinal cord injury. He works diligently to convey their story to the insurance representatives or the jury. He uses economists, medical experts and other professionals to fully demonstrate not only the extent of the injury, but also how the injury will affect his client, now and for the rest of their lives.
