Seattle Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers

At Bernard Law Group, we understand the devastating impact a spinal cord injury can have on your life and the lives of your loved ones. Our dedicated team of Seattle-based spinal cord injury lawyers is committed to providing you with the expert legal support you need during this challenging time.

Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries can happen in many accidents and instances. When someone else’s negligence or recklessness causes your injury, we can help you seek compensation.

Some of the most common causes of spinal cord injuries result from:

Vehicle Accidents

Vehicle accidents are the predominant cause of spinal cord injuries, responsible for nearly half of new cases each year. High-speed collisions and heavy vehicles can cause catastrophic damage to the spine.


Especially prevalent among older adults, falls are a significant source of spinal injuries. Such incidents may involve falling from ladders or stairs or during daily activities, posing a particular risk to those with weaker bones.


Acts of violence, including gunshot and stab wounds, contribute substantially to spinal cord injuries. These traumatic events can severely damage or sever the spinal cord, leading to permanent disability.

Sports and Recreation Injuries

Injuries from sports and recreational activities, particularly in high-impact sports or activities like diving, can cause spinal cord injuries. The force involved in these incidents often results in severe trauma.

Medical or Surgical Complications

In rare cases, spinal cord injuries occur due to complications during medical procedures, leading to unexpected and distressing outcomes.

Impact of Spinal Cord Injuries on Life

Spinal cord injuries can impact a person’s life in many ways. Some of these impacts include:

Physical Changes

Victims may face partial or complete paralysis, loss of sensation, and challenges in breathing independently. These physical changes require extensive rehabilitation and life adjustments, including home and workplace modifications.

Emotional and Psychological Effects

The emotional toll includes coping with grief, depression, anxiety, and a sense of isolation as individuals adjust to their new realities and changes in independence and physical capabilities.

Financial Burden

The costs associated with spinal cord injuries are significant. Medical treatments, ongoing care, rehabilitation, home and vehicle modifications, and potential loss of income substantially strain individuals and families.
