Eliot Reiner, APLC, represents individuals who have suffered back and neck injuries in auto accidents. Our clients present a wide range of injuries, from serious to catastrophic:
Spinal cord injuries: The spinal cord is the primary conduit of instructions from the brain to the body. When the spinal cord is damaged in an accident, this conduit no longer functions properly. The results of this injury vary according to severity of the blow and the exact location. An injury to the middle or lower spine will affect the legs, causing paraplegia. An injury higher up on the spinal cord may affect both arms and legs, causing quadriplegia.
Disk injuries: A herniated disk is the same condition as a slipped or ruptured disk. The impact of a collision can damage and deform a disk, so that it no longer provides cushioning for the bones of the spine. The condition can be both painful and disabling, and can lead to sciatica, which can be even worse.
Compression fractures: Compression fractures are minute cracks in the spinal bones that can lead to collapse and deformation of the backbone. The shape and structure of the spine are often altered permanently. Many injured persons don't realize they have compression fractures, thinking they are arthritis or osteoporosis.
Unlike other lawyers, attorney Eliot Reiner researches every case with great care. He understands the injury and the required medical treatment. He won't hesitate to speak with medical specialists about serious back injuries. His diligence has allowed clients to win maximum compensation for their back injuries.
