According to the Mayo Clinic, about 11,000 Americans suffer spinal cord injuries each year. Many severe neck and back injuries cause permanent disability or paralysis. Paralysis can involve all four extremities (quadriplegia) or only the lower body (paraplegia). If you have suffered a neck or spinal cord injury, an injury lawyer at our Sarasota or Bradenton offices can help you obtain fair compensation for your injuries.
Steven E. Heintz and David S. Becker have built a reputation throughout Florida as skilled personal injury lawyers who provide not only strong legal representation, but also a high level of personalized attention. We have obtained millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements on behalf of our past catastrophic injury clients, and we can help you too. Contact the Florida firm of Heintz & Becker for a consultation with a spinal cord injury lawyer at our Bradenton office.
Neck and Back Injury Causes
At our firm, each spinal cord injury lawyer helps clients throughout the Bradenton and Sarasota areas who have suffered as a result of another party’s reckless or negligent conduct. A back, neck or spinal cord injury can be caused by various occurrences that sever the spinal cord (usually resulting in paralysis) or damage the spine or vertebrae. Over 40 percent of spinal cord injuries are caused by motor vehicle accidents. Other leading causes of neck, back and spinal cord injuries in the United States include violent acts (shootings, stabbings and assaults), slip-and-fall accidents and sports injuries.
If another person’s reckless or negligent actions have caused you or a family member to suffer a severe neck or back injury, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact Heintz & Becker today. Schedule a free consultation and case evaluation with an experienced spinal cord injury lawyer at our Sarasota-area office.
Cost of Spinal Cord Injury
The cost of back, neck and spinal cord injuries can be higher than you realize. Initial hospitalization, rehabilitation, long-term care and loss of future income can add up. Studies have also shown that over 60 percent of spine injury victims are unemployed eight years after their injury.

If you have suffered a severe neck or back injury, you may be eligible to obtain compensation for medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, lost income, diminished earning capacity, property damage and pain and suffering.
