    The Types of Spinal Cord Injuries and the Challenges They Bring

    Depending on the location of the injury along the spinal cord, and the severity and extent of damage, SCIs can be broadly categorized into types:

    • Complete SCI: This occurs when there is a complete loss of sensation or motor control below the level of injury. For example, if the spinal cord injury has damaged a particular vertebra, the injured worker may experience paralysis or loss of sensation in all areas below that level.
    • Incomplete SCI: This occurs when there is still a bit of sensation, feeling, or motor control below the injury level.

    In addition to physical trauma and financial costs, spinal cord injuries result in a severe decline in the patient’s quality of life. Our clients often share the sheer psychological trauma of adjusting to a life of disability and the several different changes it makes in daily living.

    Having your finances and earnings taken care of can remove some load from this struggle. Physical rehabilitation costs can also be compensated with the help of an expert Philadelphia spinal cord injury lawyer, and you can focus on getting better with a more positive outlook.

Soon after I was fired, so I contacted Paul Silver at Cardamone Law Firm who did an excellent job in getting me financially compensated in a fairly short amount of time. Paul and his assistant Shirley always responded to any questions I had about the case in a very short amount of time. Thank you for helping me with this difficult case."

    "Mike Cardamone is amazing. He is "hands down" one of the best lawyers I've ever had the privilege of knowing. He is very kind, understanding, knowledgeable in his field, always very thorough and helpful. He was extremely professional and someone who truly cares about his clients. I felt completely at ease with him. He was a pleasure to work with, explained everything in detail, as well as answered all my questions with knowledge and care. If you want someone you can trust, who communicates every step of the way, will fight for you and make sure you win your case, he is it! I will refer all my family and friends to him. Thank you so much Mike, for everything. I appreciate all your hard work and dedication in helping me."

You fought every fight for me so I only had to worry about getting well. Behind your nice, calm face there’s a pit bull ready to take on any employer or judge. I can never thank you enough."
