The Law Office of Timothy Armstrong, P.A. represents persons in Northeast and Central Florida who have suffered a spinal cord injury. Injuries to the spinal cord occur when damage to the spinal cord interferes or hinders the normal transmission of signals along the spinal column and the general nervous system. These injuries can involve a range of trauma, including, but not limited to: disc herniation, disc bulging on the spinal cord, contusion (bruise on the spinal cord), compression (pressure on the spine), laceration (detachment or ripping of the spinal column or nerve fibers), and central cord syndrome. An experienced Florida spinal cord injury lawyer can sort out the facts and get you the compensation you may be entitled to under the law.
The level of treatment will depend on the level and type of spinal cord injury sustained. Some forms of treatment for the aforementioned injuries include, but are not limited to: physical therapy, steroid/epidural injections, medication therapy, exploratory discography, and spinal fusion surgery. Needless to say, the titanic consequences of a spinal cord injury can leave an innocent accident victim with injuries that may be present for the persons entire life. Therefore, it is important the injured person seek not only immediate medical attention, but medical attention from specialists who can properly diagnose and treat the spinal cord injury.
Many times a client unfortunately does not have medical insurance to cover their medical expenses. If you have automobile insurance the State of Florida mandates that you carry a minimum amount of personal injury protection insurance. This insurance is called “PIP” for short and may provide you with up to $10,000 in medical benefits following an automobile accident. Following an accident we will work quickly with your own insurance carrier to get you the PIP benefits you may be entitled to.
