Kirk Bernard Discusses Spinal Cord Injuries and their Catastrophic Consequences

A recent American Chronicle article posted by Kirk Bernard addresses different types of spinal cord injuries and their potentially catastrophic consequences. The article begins by stating that injuries to the spinal cord can be some of the most traumatic and life changing of all, mainly because the spinal cord is responsible for so many of the body´s functions. This long cord is protected by the vertebrae of the spine, and is responsible for transporting messages from the brain to other parts of the body. The spinal cord plays a vital role in movement, senses, and even unconscious bodily functions like respiration and circulation. Therefore, it´s not at all surprising that an injury to any area of the spinal cord can have catastrophic effects.

Kirk Bernard Discusses How Paralysis May Be Caused by Spinal Cord Injury

Ezines lately published an article by Seattle personal injury attorney, Kirk Bernard, which discusses how paralysis may be caused by spinal cord injury. The article begins by stating that the spinal cord is what actually transports and delivers impulses to various parts of the body (while the brain is responsible for producing these impulses). However, when the spinal cord is damaged, catastrophic consequences can result, and this includes paralysis. When such severe injuries are caused by another person’s negligent actions, an injured victim may be able to seek monetary compensation to assist them with years, if not a lifetime, of medical treatment, rehabilitation, and care.

Kirk Bernard Introduces New Spinal Cord Injury Website

The Bernard Law Group has launched a new website focusing on spinal cord injuries and the legal grounds involved when such tragedy strikes. Personal injury attorney, Kirk Bernard, is happy to announce the website, http://www.washingtonspinalcordinjuryattorneys.com/, as a resource for spinal injury news, information on causes of spinal injury, and advice for those with various kinds of spinal injuries.

As is the case for most serious injuries, spinal cord injury affects lives unexpectedly and in life-altering ways that require specific medical attention and long rehabilitation to reach a point of well being and good health. The Bernard Law Group believes that it is important for a spinal cord injury victim and their family to understand their legal options when holding those responsible whose negligent actions caused the injury.

As the main “pathway” for neurological impulses to transfer senses and unconscious functions back and forth between the brain and the rest of the body, the spinal cord is extremely important and sensitive. Spine damage can have a drastic influence on an individual’s life and what can be done to treat these injuries has a lot to do with what caused it. Depending on the degree in which the vertebrae-which helps protect the spinal cord- has been damaged, nerve signal transmission can be hindered, causing different types of paralysis.

For two decades, the Bernard Law Group has defended the rights of those who have suffered personal injury due to the negligence of someone else or a large entity. Our firm prides itself in defending the rights of victims and being successful in obtaining millions of dollars for our clients in a number of trial verdicts and settlements.
