Spinal cord injury can occur in the blink of an eye.

John P. Young is an experienced Indiana/Indianapolis spinal cord injury lawyer.  Mr. Young has represented Hoosiers with Spinal Cord injuries for 22 years.  These injuries have occurred in highway accidents, semi tractor-trailer accidents, motorcycle accidents, drunk driving accidents and construction accidents.  Spinal Cord injury can have devastating effects not only on the injured Hoosier, but on their family and finances.  The light at the end of the tunnel is that we, as a society, have risen to the challenge of providing resources for the spinal cord injury victim.  We recommend that anyone with a relative, or friend who is dealing with spinal cord injury get in touch with the National Spinal Cord Injury Association (www.spinalcord.org).  We also recommend the Sam Schmidt Paralysis Foundation (www.samschmidt.org).   These organizations make the first steps to entering the world with a spinal cord injury more sure.

Spinal cord injury can occur in the blink of an eye. 

For hunters using climbing tree stands, take a hunter safety course and always be connected to the tree with you safety line and harness.  We recommend a body harness with four point contact.  This will keep you from hitting the ground, turning upside down or becoming asphyxiated while waiting for help.

For those of you with trampolines, never allow your child to jump with others on the trampoline.  The “double bounce” action of the second person can cause the first person to be launched higher, lose control turn upside down and land on their head causing spinal cord injury.

Never allow anyone to dive head first into any body of water until you are certain of the depths.  Simply because the diver is on a dock extending into the water, or on a boat far from shore does not mean that there are not shoals in the area.

Motorcyclists, always take a rider safety course.  Most motorcycle accidents happen because the auto driver does not see you.  Cars turn in front of motorcycles all the time.  Watch for them and drive at a speed which allows you to stop suddenly and safely.
