Fighting For Spinal Cord Injury Victims in Tennessee

When you think about it, life generally falls into three primary categories: sleep, work, and spending time doing the things you love. A serious back or spinal nerve injury affects all three. Back injury victims have a hard time sleeping without medication. They may not be able to do the work that once supported their families, and many find that they cannot even help around the house the way they used to. From lawn mowing to laundry to playing with the kids, a spinal injury affects their lives in every way.

The Stapleton Law Office is committed to helping victims of spinal cord and other back injuries obtain fair compensation that will help them cover their medical bills and other expenses related to their injury. Our Rogersville spinal cord injury lawyer Mark Stapleton has spent over 35 years fighting for the rights of wrongfully injured people just like you. We will do everything in our power to help you secure a settlement that will cover your accident-related expenses and treatment for life.

Understanding Spinal Cord Injuries and Their Impact

According to the Mayo Clinic, a spinal cord injury occurs when a part of the spinal cord (or the “cauda equina,” the nerves at the end of the spinal canal) is damaged. Serious back and spinal cord injury can result in paralysis in a leg or arm. The most devastating back and spine injuries can result in paralysis from the waist or mid-chest down.

Because the spinal cord is critical to many motor functions and sensations, a serious spinal cord injury can affect every aspect of a person’s life—perhaps even permanently. People with spinal cord injuries may have trouble moving, breathing, and completing standard bodily functions.

Spinal cord injuries affect the area below when the injury occurred. This means that if your spinal cord injury was caused by neck trauma, for example, every body part below your neck could be affected.

The two main types of spinal cord injury include:

  • Complete/total: A total spinal cord injury occurs when all sensory and motor functions are lost below the spinal cord injury.
  • Incomplete/partial: Spinal cord injuries that leave some motor and/or sensory functions intact below the site of the injury are considered partial or “incomplete.”

    "He is Awesome!"
    A couple months ago my family was put in a situation in which we had to find an attorney immediately. With being over 9 hours away from Tennessee we didn't know where to turn but to google. After seeing the reviews for Mr. Stapleton we called his office right away. Mr. Stapleton contacted us shortly after. He was honest and upfront from the beginning. His professionalism, communication, and charisma was phenomenal! Whenever we had questions he was there to answer. He always kept us well informed and never mislead us. He has always been straight forward regarding the case. Today we walked out of court with the outcome we wanted. Definitely recommend Mr. Stapleton to anyone who needs an attorney. He is AWESOME!!!
