Louisiana residents know that a healthy spinal cord is vital to a functioning human body. A spinal cord injury can render a person permanently or temporarily disabled. Some of the circumstances that lead to spinal cord injuries are vehicular accidents, workplace injuries and some types of recreational activities. These injuries can have life-altering effects on an individual and therefore, it is necessary that victims of spinal cord injuries seek the best possible medical care to recover from these injuries and resume a normal life as soon as possible.

Personal injury law only addresses spinal cord injuries sustained due to an accident caused by another person or entity. It does not consider disability from congenital disease.
