Spinal cord and back injuries are among the most painful, traumatic, and debilitating injuries people could endure.
At Charpentier Law Firm, P.A., a spinal cord injury lawyer can pursue fair compensation for the astronomical medical costs caused by the negligent actions of another.
We can handle the legal process while you focus on your recovery...
There Are Two Main Categories:
The spinal cord has been fully severed, resulting in complete loss of functional capabilities below the site of injury which can result in tetraplegia, paraplegia, and triplegia. However, some patients are able to regain some function with proper treatment and physical therapy.
With these injuries, the spinal cord is only partially severed so you may retain some functionality. Common partial spinal cord injuries include anterior cord syndrome, central cord syndrome, and Brown-Sequard syndrome.
With offices in Melbourne, Titusville, and Cocoa, the spinal cord injury lawyers at Charpentier Law Firm, P.A., are experienced at handling the legal aspects of these devastating injuries, allowing victims and their families to focus on more personal matters.

Spinal Cord Injuries
Automobile accidents, gun shot wounds, and slip and fall incidents are among the leading causes of spinal cord injuries. In some cases, the injury to the spinal cord is so severe that there is a complete loss of control over the entire body. In other instances, the cord is injured in a way or particular location inside the spine that only a portion of the body, such as the legs, is affected.
Regardless of the extent or cause of your paralysis, our Melbourne law firm’s spinal cord injury lawyers can help you recover compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other losses.
Spinal cord injuries vary greatly in terms of their severity, possible treatments, and chances for recovery. However, the injuries commonly result in one or more of the following:
- Spinal cord compression
- Loss of Bladder or Bowel Control
- Loss of Sexual Function
A spinal cord injury can permanently affect your ability to walk, work, and enjoy life. Our Titusville, Cocoa, and Melbourne offices are staffed by spinal cord injury lawyers who are experienced with personal injury litigation and aggressively fight for the compensation to which their injured clients are entitled.
While many people experience mild back pain from time to time, the injuries can worsen and become a painful and chronic condition that requires medical treatment. Back injuries are commonly caused by sudden trauma to the body, such as in automobile accidents, or while playing contact sports such as football or basketball.
The Central Florida back injury lawyers from Charpentier Law Firm, P.A. will help injured clients get to the proper medical professionals, who can diagnose and treat the injury while we evaluate your legal claim to receive financial compensation for your back injury.
