Cauda Equina Syndrome From Car Accidents

In cases involving severe spinal cord compression as a result of disc herniations and collapse after car accidents in Georgia, we sometime have clients diagnosed with cauda equina syndrome.

The "cauda equina" or horse' tail begins at the end of the spinal chord in the lower back and is comprised of bundles of vital nerves. The nerves branch off in the hips and legs and control a variety of critical body functions.

A cauda equina syndrome diagnosis after a car accident usually is the result of a disc injury. They can experience, weakness in the legs, bladder control issues, waste voiding issues, numbness in the crotch, bilateral leg weakness and nervous system irregularities in the ankles.

In cases where the symptoms are serious, either a disc laminectomy or a full disc fusion are suggested, with good results in otherwise healthy candidates.

Remember that after a serious car accident in Georgia, if you experience low body numbness or tingling, urinary or bowel problems or foot drop, see your doctor immediately so that permanent damage does not occur. Cauda equina is a rare, but very serious consequence of spinal disc injuries after a car accident.

Client Reviews
My wife and I were hit by a tractor trailer in 2014. After extensive research online, we were deeply impressed with the various reviews we read on Google and Avvo and chose Chris to represent us. We could not have a made a better decision. Chris and his firm treated us like we were their only clients, soothed our worries, and instantly gained our trust. Chris settled both of our cases for more than we expected. James
A co-worker of my wife recommended Chris to us. At the very beginning Chris showed that he cared and his knowledge is priceless. Going through this process can be aggravating but Chris did a great job guiding me through this and was always available to answer my questions. Chris fought to get what I deserved even though at times I wanted to give up. Tracy
I want to express my deepest sense of gratitude and appreciation to Attorney Chris Simon & Attorney Chris Carsten, for all the hard work that they put forth into my case (car accident filed after being hit by drunk driver). Their attention to detail and professionalism far surpasses their firm's reputation. Because of their diligence and dedication to their craft, they were able to bring my case to a successful close, one that I could live with. You will not find a better team for your case. Should I have a need for their services again in the future, or know of anyone looking for a top notch Auto Accident Law Firm, I would not hesitate to recommend them!!!! Elle
Wow...Chris is a very good attorney. Me and my son was in a very bad car accident an I was clueless on how to handle the situation. It's very hard to find an attorney who allows you to contact them personally instead of you contacting their asst. I was told that I didn't have a case because the hosiptal put a lien on my acct. Chris prove different and I was able to file my case with the insurance company. The process was very quickly and Im glad I selected the right attorney..Thanks Chris A Car Accident client

He is very consice, efficient, patient and understanding. He has a strong passion for what he does and he does it well. I recommend Chris Simon as legal representation for anyone who has suffreed damages or a loss at the negligence of others. He really cares about you and your case. A Car Accident client
