Experiencing a spinal cord injury can be devastating, altering the course of your life and that of your loved ones. At Clark, Fountain, La Vista, Littky-Rubin & Whitman, we understand the immense physical, emotional, and financial burdens that accompany such injuries. Our seasoned Florida spinal cord injury lawyers are dedicated to helping victims throughout Palm Beach County and across Florida navigate these challenging times.

Understanding Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries can result in varying degrees of paralysis, including paraplegia or quadriplegia. These injuries can permanently impact your mobility, requiring ongoing, often lifelong rehabilitation and medical care. The reality is stark: a full recovery is not possible for many, making the right legal representation critical to secure the necessary resources for your care and recovery.

The High Cost of Living with a Spinal Cord Injury

The costs associated with spinal cord injury care are astronomical. Rehabilitation, medical equipment, home modifications, and personal care can drain savings quickly, compounded by lost wages if you are unable to return to work. At Clark Fountain, our goal is to alleviate these financial stresses by pursuing the compensation you deserve.

Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries

The leading cause of spinal cord injuries is motor vehicle accidents, including cars and motorcycles, which account for approximately 35% of these injuries annually. Other prevalent causes include:

  • Falls: Particularly in individuals over 65, falls are a significant risk factor.
  • Acts of Violence: Around 15% of cases result from violent incidents, such as gunshot or knife wounds.
  • Sports and Recreation: High-impact sports and activities like diving contribute to about 9% of injuries.
  • Alcohol Influence: Alcohol plays a role in one out of every four spinal cord injuries.
  • Diseases: Conditions like cancer, arthritis, osteoporosis, and spinal inflammation also lead to injuries.

Identifying the cause of your injury is the first step in determining liability and pursuing a claim.
