Personal injury accidents can cause widespread injuries, ranging from soft-tissue to catastrophic. For passengers and drivers of automobiles and trucks, which can and tend to flip over, the result can also be a potential wrongful death claim. Other types of accidents that are non-vehicular may involve a different type of negligence. For example, with a slip and fall or premises liability legal claim, a dangerous substance or liquid could have been negligently left behind causing an innocent bystander to slip and suffer injury. These types of cases routinely occur in supermarket aisles, grocery stores, restaurants and nightclubs. For a full list of cases we fund at High Rise Financial, click here.
Other personal injury accident cases, especially in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills, may include medical malpractice claims where the doctor operated or performed below what is “reasonable” and the industry standard of care. The injuries that can result can be devastating.
Construction accidents are another class of injury producing lawsuits. When safety rules are violated, OSHA may become involved causing the employer to pay penalties and even become non-operational. Construction accidents involving open and unguarded skylights, scaffolding or other dangerous construction areas can cause injuries such as spinal cord damage or even paralysis.

Types of Spinal Cord Injuries and Loss of Sensory Control
There are two categories of spinal cord injuries: complete and incomplete. Complete injury means the victim’s spine is so damaged that he or she has lost total sensory control to their body. Incomplete means the partial loss of physical or sensory control. The four areas where a spinal cord injury can occur include the cervical spine (C1-C8), thoracic spine (T1-T12), lumbar spine (L1-L5) and sacral spine (S1-S5).
The cervical portion of the spine is closest to the neck. Injury to this area can cause paralysis, weakness, bowel dysfunction, impaired sexual function and respiratory problems. Weakness can occur in the arms and legs.
Thoracic area of the spine is the largest and is located in the middle of the spinal cord. Injuries to this area are rare because it is shielded by the ribcafe. However, injuries can cause paralysis or lost sensation in the legs.
Injuries to the lumbar spine can cause paraplegia in its victims. Such injuries can and often do require surgery.
The sacral spine is the lowest area of the spine which controls the lower parts of the body like the thighs, legs and feet. Injuries can lead to lost bladder control and impaired sexual function.
