What You Need to Know About Spinal Fracture-Dislocations After an Accident

Medical Diagram of a Fractured SpinePossibly the most serious form of spinal fracture is a fracture-dislocation, which causes a vertebra to move out of place to create an extremely unstable condition in the spine. A fracture-dislocation, in most cases, needs to be stabilized in a closed reduction surgery, because if left untreated it poses a danger to the spinal cord. Spinal cord injuries often cause paralysis.

If you have been in an accident that someone else caused and have suffered from a spinal fracture or other injury and have questions about making a claim to be compensated for your losses, your best resource is an experienced Florida personal injury lawyer.
