At Sheff Law we understand that a spinal cord injury can be as devastating for the family as it is for the victim. While some spinal cord injuries are mild, many others are severe and can lead to lasting nerve damage to the spinal column. These injuries can potentially create permanent disability, immobility or loss of sensation below the vertebral level at the spinal cord. Falls, diseases, motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries, industrial accidents, and assaults are all likely causes for spinal cord injuries. Common symptoms of a spinal cord injury include, but are not limited to, abrupt loss of consciousness; brutal back pain or pressure buildup in back, head, or neck; extreme weakness, clumsiness or immobility in any body part; numbness in hands, fingers, feet or toes; and difficulty breathing.
Cambridge is a city in Middlesex County, Massachusetts, located in the Greater Boston area. It is probably best known as an academic and intellectual center, as it is home to two of the world’s most prominent universities, Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. As a result, Cambridge is well known for having a lively student environment that is unlike any other. It is the fifth most populous city in the State of Massachusetts, with approximately 105,162 people (as of the 2010 census). Cambridge is also home to several urban “squares” that present commercial, economic, social and cultural opportunities to both residents and visitors alike. These famous squares include Kendall Square, Central Square, Harvard Square, Porter Square, Inman Square and Lechmere Square. Each of the squares functions as a unique neighborhood center.
As a bustling city packed with undergraduate students, graduate students, professors, tourists, and more, the City of Cambridge is filled with busy streets, restaurants and visitor locations. While there are advantages to being a stimulating environment, there certainly are drawbacks, such as the increased potential for personal injury. With various groups of people and interests comes a greater potential for automobile accidents, sports injuries, bike collisions, assaults, and more. It is crucial that both residents and visitors are conscious of people and events surrounding them, so as to best avoid such harms.
