With Decades Of Collective Legal Experience, We Understand Spinal Cord Injuries

Spine injuries from an accident range from minor injuries to paralysis, including quadriplegia or paraplegia. At Frischhertz & Impastato, in New Orleans, we have experience with a wide range of personal injury claims after an accident causes serious spine and back injuries.

Our experienced and energetic attorneys understand the long-lasting impacts a spinal cord injury can have — and how to aggressively pursue appropriate compensation for our injured clients.

Symptoms May Not Appear Immediately

If you are involved in an accident involving trauma to your spine, seek medical attention immediately, even if you do not believe your spine is injured. Serious spinal cord injuries may not be immediately apparent after a car accident or other traumatic event. Numbness or paralysis may gradually appear after an accident.

Seek medical attention immediately if your back has been subject to trauma and you experience symptoms such as these:

  • Head, neck or back pressure or extreme back pain
  • Paralysis or weakness anywhere on your body
  • Numbness or loss of sensation in your hands or feet
  • Loss of bladder or bowel control
  • Impaired balance
  • Impaired breathing

Have Your Case Evaluated By An Attorney

Like other serious injuries, specialized medical treatment and long-term care will be needed if you suffer a severe spinal cord injury. Your injuries may be long-lasting or permanent. Our attorneys can help evaluate whether your injuries were caused by someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing and explain your legal options. You can feel protected while you recover from your injuries as we aggressively pursue your claim.
