Spinal Cord Injuries

Published by Mark Brynteson

If you are a spinal cord injury victim whose injury was caused by a negligent or careless person or entity, Mark D. Brynteson wants to make sure that you get all the compensation that you are entitled to under Illinois law. He will fight for your rights by exhausting every avenue of recovery available so that the party responsible for your accident is held financially liable for your injuries.

A spinal cord injury (SCI) occurs when the damage to the spine is so severe that the injured person experiences the loss of physical movement or sensation. There are at least 11,000 new cases of spinal cord injuries in the United States each year. Many of these SCIs are caused by car accidents, motorcycle accidents, fall accidents, pedestrian accidents, sports-related accidents, and other kinds of personal injury accidents.

Common Kinds of Spinal Cord Injuries Common kinds of spinal cord injuries include contusion (spinal bruising), compression (pressure on the spine), spinal fractures, a broken back, a herniated disk, paralysis, a fractured vertebra, quadriplegia, paraplegia, loss of ability to function sexually, loss of bladder control, and loss of bowel control. Respiratory problems, bedsores, severe depression, and emotional trauma are just some of the effects that can result from a spinal cord injury. Common tasks, such as getting out of bed or walking across the room can become extremely painful—even impossible—when you have a spinal cord injury. It can be especially traumatic to have your injury occur in an accident that was someone else’s fault.

Recovery from a spinal cord injury can be long and costly. While many people with a spinal injury can recover after a period of proper treatment and therapy, there are those who will never recover, are forever confined to a wheelchair or bed, and whose medical care is for life. A good personal injury law firm that understands the nature of spinal cord injuries and the complexities of SCI cases can help you demand the maximum recovery possible from any liable parties so that you can afford to get the care that you need.

Mark D. Brynteson is experienced in dealing with spinal cord injury cases. He will take your injuries very seriously and have a doctor review your injuries. He will examine your SCI and assess how long it will take for you to recover so that we can file a personal injury claim in line with all current and future costs that your injury may incur.

Mark D. Brynteson cares about you, your recovery, and your quality of life and will take immediate and aggressive action to make the liable party pay for your injuries, pain, suffering, medical bills, lost wages, and any other damages that are applicable to your case.

Mark D. Brynteson would like to offer you a free, no obligation consultation so that you can start developing a plan of action together.

Client Testimonials

I have known Mr. Brynteson for many years. I first met him in a social setting at a men's prayer group, then later had the privilege to use him professionally on several occasions. Mr. Brynteson has set up two non-profit corporations that I am a part of in record time. His competence, speed of action and knowledge in the area was astounding! I believe that Mr. Brynteson has the integrity that he would not take on any case in which he feels he could not do an exceptional job for his client. I certainly could recommend this gentlemen and am privileged to publicly give him a 5 star rating.

— Dr. Jacob Caraotta

When I finally called Mark Brynteson after being mired in a nasty situation for several months, Mark immediately took charge and directed every reponse on my part. He explained the problems clearly from a legal standpoint and also provided options when they were available. One day when I was quite sick and flat on my back, Mark called to follow up on a problem. When he finished, he said, "Today I'm not on the clock". Under the circumstances, that consideration was highly appreciated.

— Len Salvig
