What Causes Spinal Cord Injuries?
Some spinal cord injuries are caused by medical malpractice during child birth or during surgery, particularly during back surgery.
Other spinal cord injuries are not the result of a blow to the spine. Instead, these injuries are caused by repetitive activities, such as lifting heavy objects at work.

Signs of a Spinal Cord Injury
There are a variety of symptoms of a spinal cord injury, including:
- Extreme pain in the neck, head or back
- Tingling, numbness or weakness in the extremities or other parts of the body
- Trouble walking
- Trouble breathing
- Loss of consciousness
- Bladder control issues
If you are experiencing these symptoms or any others that could indicate a spinal cord injury, you need to seek medical treatment as soon as possible. Delaying treatment could increase the severity of your injury, turning what could have been a minor injury into a major one.
Doctors could diagnose you with one of many different spinal cord injuries, such as:
- Herniated discs
- Fractured vertebrae
- Sprains or strains
- Nerve damage
- Brown-Sequard Syndrome
If you suffered one of these or another spinal cord injury as a result of another’s negligent, careless or intentional actions, contact the Boston spinal cord injury lawyers at Janet, Jenner & Suggs for a free consultation. We may be able to pursue compensation for damages caused by your injury, such as medical bills, prescription medications, mobility aids, lost wages and lost earning capacity, among others.

Why You Need a Boston Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer
If you want to recover compensation for your spinal cord injury, you need to prove the four elements of negligence, including:
- The accused person or party owed you a duty of care.
- The accused party acted recklessly or carelessly and violated its duty of care.
- The breach of the duty of care was the primary cause of your injury.
- Your injury caused you to suffer damages, including physical, financial and emotional damages.
The duty of care means different things in different situations. For instance, in a car accident, another driver could breach his or her duty of care by speeding, driving under the influence of alcohol or violating traffic laws in some other way. In a medical setting, doctors and other medical professionals have a duty of care to provide treatment within accepted standards of the medical community.
However, even if you prove that the accused party breached its duty of care, you still have to prove it was the primary cause of your injury. Insurance companies and lawyers for the accused will use every argument they can think of to try to prove that your injury was not caused by a breach of the duty of care.
The attorneys at Janet, Jenner & Suggs have many years of experience determining and proving the exact cause of a person's injuries. We have detailed knowledge of relevant laws and have the resources to conduct a comprehensive investigation to build a solid case.
We will aggressively negotiate on your behalf to recover fair compensation for all of the damages you have suffered. If we are unable to negotiate a fair settlement, we are prepared to take your case to court to achieve the justice you deserve.
