Spinal Injury

A spinal cord injury is often a life altering event — physically, emotionally and financially.

An injury that results in partial paralysis is known as paraplegia, and an injury to the cervical vertebrae in the neck is known as quadriplegia. This injury can result in not only loss of feeling and function in all four limbs, but can cause severe pain, loss of bowel and bladder control, spasms, and change in sexual function. The medical costs associated with both paraplegia and quadriplegia are excessive.


A spinal cord injury can occur from an automobile accident, medical negligence, sports injury or an injury due to landowner or employer negligence. Medical malpractice can also lead to a spinal cord injury where there is a failure to timely diagnose infections or spinal compressions.


One of David Dowling's first spinal cord injury cases occurred more than 25 years ago when he represented a young man who dove off a sliding board into a swimming pool, resulting in a spinal cord injury. David Dowling successfully proved that the swimming pool and slide lacked adequate warning signs and obtained a significant settlement for his client.


Spinal Cord Injury Litigation

Most litigation that involves spinal cord injuries has a basis on the legal theory of negligence. The plaintiff has the burden of proving that the defendant has the legal responsibility or is at fault for the spinal cord injuries.


In addition, some spinal cord injury cases happen as a result of dangerous or defective products, such as defective brakes or a faulty air bag, which makes the manufacturer liable for damages.


If you or a loved one has suffered a spinal cord injury, you need an attorney experienced in spinal cord injury who will represent you with, dedication and tenacity. We encourage you to call David B. Dowling, Esquire to schedule a free consultation and analysis of your case.
