Head and spinal injuries

Causes of head and spinal injuries

These range from automobile accidents to slip and fall accidents, but victims often must seek expensive medical attention and spend a substantial amount of time away from work while they recover, losing income in the process. In severe circumstances, these types of injuries can result in permanent disability or even death. Injury victims have the right to request compensation for their losses.

Repercussions and causes of head and spinal injuries

Some of the most common causes and repercussions of head and spinal injuries include:


Even after recovering from the initial consequences of a vehicular accident, whiplash injuries tend to last long after the incident itself. Since these injuries affect such a critical part of the body, you may be prevented from returning to work or the normal activities in which you participated before the accident within a reasonable period of time.

At the Chris Mayo law firm, our San Antonio whiplash claim attorneys understand how shocking these injuries can be for accident victims; We may be able to help you find compensation for your pain and suffering.

Traumatic brain injury

While you are still struggling to understand the full extent of the head injury that you or a loved one may have suffered, the financial burden of the accident is probably already evident. However, there is no reason for you and your family to have to carry the burden of the accident alone.

At the law firm Chris Mayo, our San Antonio traumatic brain injury attorneys can help you aggressively pursue the justice and compensation you and your family will need to address this devastating situation.

Cerebral palsy

Cerebral palsy is a serious disorder that affects the cerebral cortex, the part of the brain that is responsible for controlling movement. While cerebral palsy is not progressive, meaning that it will not get worse over time, the symptoms may change and vary in severity. It often appears within the first three years of a child’s life, and can be caused by a number of different factors that are related to the brain damage that occurs during development. It is estimated that around 10,000 babies are diagnosed with cerebral palsy each year.

Most of the factors that lead to cerebral palsy are inevitable; however, about ten percent of children acquire the disorder after birth. A terrible cause of CP is the damage that occurs during traumatic delivery, and this is the only factor that can prevent competent doctors. In addition, cerebral palsy can also occur as a result of a head and spinal injury that occurs in a car accident. The attorneys at Chris Mayo Law Firm know exactly how devastating this illness can be, and we want to help you find compensation for your child’s suffering.


Victims who suffer paralysis after an accident or a collision that was not their fault have to face enormous difficulties throughout the recovery process. Permanent paralysis can change all aspects of a victim’s daily life and make him unable to maintain a living wage. If you or a loved one has been paralyzed by mistake by a negligent third party, you may be eligible to obtain financial compensation for the associated damages. The San Antonio paralysis attorneys at the law firm Chris Mayo are striving to bring to justice the irresponsible people who cause these unfortunate accidents.


The pain of dealing with a loved one in a coma is extensive, and if your loved one’s injuries were caused by the actions of a negligent person, such as a drunk or distracted driver causing a car accident, the pain may be impossible to overcome. While there will not be an amount of monetary compensation that can completely erase the suffering of the victims of the coma or their loved ones, a financial agreement from the responsible party can help alleviate some of the stress of the victim and her family. If your loved one has recently suffered injuries that left you comatose as a result of someone else’s negligent actions, the San Antonio Coma Claim Attorneys at the Chris Mayo Law Firm can help you obtain compensation from the responsible party.

These types of injuries are devastating and compensation can be essential in order to continue with your life.

Facing a head or spinal injury on your own can make a difficult situation impossible. Our attorneys understand the challenges and we would love to talk about your situation.
