Dallas brain injury lawyers | dedicated spinal cord injury attorneys of Eberstein & Witherite, LLP
Brain and spinal cord injuries are considered to be the most disastrous injuries imaginable, and the catastrophic effects are both physical and emotional. A report in June of 2006 stated that approximately 11,000 victims suffer new spinal cord injuries every year. About 253,000 victims were living with these terrible injuries, and most of these victims are under the age of 30. The attorneys at Eberstein & Witherite, LLP, help victims and their families that suffer from brain or spinal cord injury, and they tirelessly pursue the compensation that is owed to them.
A alarming event involving motor vehicle accidents, sports games or activities, construction accidents, or slips and falls at businesses can cause bruises (contusions) to the spinal cord, put pressure (compression) on the spinal cord, or completely sever the nerve fibers in the surrounding area. An injury to the spinal cord can be life-changing because the spinal cord transmits signals to the body from the brain that control movement and sensations. The brain or spinal injury may also be difficult to diagnose. Common symptoms of these types of injuries include:
- Loss of memory
- Confusion and disorientation
- Blurred or lost vision
- Problems with speech
- Loss of bowel or bladder control
- Sexual dysfunction
- Change in behavior or demeanor
