If you sustained a spine injury or nerve damage in a serious accident, you may need compensation for ongoing medical treatment, rehabilitation or adaptive equipment to maximize your independence.

At Blackman Legal Group, we understand the impact your injury can have on your life. We know how to put together a strong and effective case that gets results.

We have an impressive record of obtaining financial settlements and verdicts for people who have suffered paraplegia or other spinal cord injuries in the following types of accidents:



Paraplegia is the result of a traumatic spinal cord injury in the thoracic disks of the back. It affects feeling and movement in the lower part of the body.

The extent of your loss will depend on the seriousness of the injury. A “complete” spinal cord injury results in paralysis: the complete loss of feeling and movement. With an “incomplete” spinal cord injury, you may have feeling but no control of movement, control of one side and not the other, or a limited range of motion. The effect of a spinal cord injury, including a cauda equine lesion in the lumbar region of the spine, will be different for each person.

Spinal Cord Injury - Blackman Legal GroupAt Blackman Legal Group, we produce and use high-quality illustrations for use in personal injury trials.

This medical illustration was created for use during a personal injury trial. The illustrations were professionally created from our client’s x-rays and MRIs to accurately depict the injuries to our client’s neck. Illustrations such as these make it easy for members of the jury to understand the seriousness of the person’s injury and to understand the testimony of surgeons and physicians as they talk about the injury and its short- and long-term impact on quality of life for the injured person.

There are three parts to any personal injury lawsuit:

  • Proving that another party caused the accident and should be held financially liable
  • Providing evidence about the extent of the injuries
  • Demonstrating the costs of that spinal cord injury over the course of a lifetime

At Blackman Legal Group, our paraplegia injury lawyers work with a variety of specialists to gain a clear understanding of the causes of the accident. Reckless or negligent actions on the part of an individual may be one cause, but a defective product or a design defect may also be involved. In other paraplegia cases, a negligent property owner may be partly to blame.


At Blackman Legal Group, we seek out every possible source of financial compensation to ensure that you recover the damages you need and deserve. Contact us by e-mail or call us toll-free at 1-866-692-8126 to speak with an experienced and effective paraplegia injury lawyer.
