When injuries are categorized as “complete” they are generally thought to be permanent in nature. However, when injuries are referenced as being “incomplete” they are thought to be still developing, temporary, or potentially permanent. Occasionally spinal cord injuries can be mild, not affecting much mobility or sensory perception at all. The severity of the injury will determine the type of medical care you require and the extent to which it is required.

Spinal cord injuries come in all shapes and sizes, but they are always difficult, and almost always devastating. They can result from a large array of accidents, such as car, motorcycle, boat, bus, and truck accidents. They can also happen after misdiagnosis, negligence, and malpractice. Slip and fall accidents, and high-impact sports accidents are also common causes of spinal cord injuries in New Hampshire and Massachusetts. They can happen at birth as a result of a birth injury, or in a nursing home due to nursing home negligence.

Having a medical record of your injury will also help Buckley Law Offices pursue legal action on your behalf if during our free consultation we find your spinal injury to be actionable.
Gather as much information as possible. Record details such as the location the spinal injury occurred and the names and contact information of anyone who was involved in your injury. Document any conditions you have that may have contributed to the accident.
At Buckley Law Offices we are repeatedly unsurprised by and deeply grateful for the number of good samaritans that regularly come forward to help our clients. If someone saw your spinal cord injury occur, or witnessed events that led to your injury, you should speak with them immediately. Get their full name, address, and phone number if you can. Witness testimony is invaluable.
If something such as a faulty stair step or other visible negligence led to your injury, photograph it and keep the photographs somewhere safe. Photographic evidence is extremely useful.
