While some spinal cord injuries are mild, many others are rather severe and can potentially result in long-lasting nerve damage to the spinal column. A spinal cord injury may cause permanent disability, immobility or loss of feeling below the vertebral level at the spinal cord, which is referred to as paralysis.Spinal cord injuries may be the consequence of falls, diseases, motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries, industrial accidents, and assaults, as well as other causes. 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; inability to establish equilibrium; and difficulty breathing.The attorneys at Sheff Law realize that the representation of serious personal injury clients from Dorchester is an essential responsibility of the firm. Dorchester is a dissolved municipality and current neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts. As of the 2010 census, it has a population of 91,982. It has become a large working class community, populated by an array of people, including African Americans, European Americans, Caribbean Americans, Latinos, and Asian Americans. These immigrants helped restore economically several areas of the neighborhood by opening ethnic stores and restaurants. There has been a recent influx of young professionals, adding to the culture of the neighborhood. Additionally, in the 20th century, many of the labor unions in Boston relocated their headquarters to Dorchester.While it is certainly advantageous to be a neighborhood filled with many different types of people and places, it is the unfortunate truth that often times, differences lead to conflict. Personal injury, including assaults, may be a result of such conflict, and have the potential to cause spinal cord injuries. In addition, with such a large population, there is a greater risk of accidents such as slip-and-falls, automobile collisions, and more.
