The spinal cord is an indispensable part of the body because it carries messages from the brain to the rest of the body. It originates in the brain and courses through the spinal canal of the cervical (neck), thoracic (mid back), and lumbar (lower back) spine. The outermost protective membrane layer, the dura mater, contains a spinal fluid which cushions and protects the spinal cord and nerve roots. When the spinal cord is damaged, injuries can be dramatic.
Spinal Cord Injuries (SCI) are frequently catastrophic and life changing injuries. Spinal cord trauma can affect every aspect of one’s life and place a strain on one’s personal relationships. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke www.ninds.nih.gov, a spinal cord injury usually occurs due to a sudden traumatic blow to the spine that fractures or dislocates vertebrae. The symptoms can very form pain to paralysis to incontinence.
Spinal Cord Injuries are classified as either complete or incomplete. An incomplete injury means that the ability of the spinal cord to convey messages to or from the brain is not completely lost. Injured individuals experiecing incomplete injuries retain some motor or sensory functions below the injury. A complete injury is indicated by a total lack of sensory and motor function below the level of injury. Those who survive serious spinal cord injuries will most likely have medical complications such as chronic pain and bladder and bowel disfunction, along with an increased susceptibility of respiratory and heart problems.
These injuries are typically associated with major trauma from motor vehicle accidents, falls, sport injuries, and violence. According to the Paralyzed Veterans of America www.pva.org, every year over 10,000 people in the U.S. sustain spinal cord injuries which change not only their lives, but also the lives of their families in an instant. Injured individuals frequently require significant future medical and nursing care due to inability to care for themselves.

“Professional and efficient.”
“Mr. Tarasenko was referred to me by a friend who provided me with a positive recommendation. As a paralegal professional myself, I have a much higher expectation of those who practice law than typical clients, so I was pleasantly pleased by his professionalism and knowledge. Pursuing a personal injury case can be a daunting and intimidating task, but he was efficient and kept me well informed during the process. My case had several issues and difficulties, but his research capabilities and diligence to find solutions were excellent. I will most certainly use his services again.”

“Best Possible Outcome”
“Kirill Tarasenko was my Lawyer and worked on my Auto accident case for the past 2 years, and he was a true professional in his field in every sense of the word. He never promised me any particular results, but he did promise that he would work hard and to the best of his abilities to provide me with the best possible outcome. My case was a very difficult and complicated case, and as far as I remember, no other attorney showed interest to accept my case. My case had been turned down by three other lawyers, but when I contacted Tarasenko Law Office, Kirill accepted my case and he stated that he likes to help people.
Kirill is a thoughtful, caring, and knowledgable attorney. I also consider him ethical and trustworthy , and I would not hesitate to contact him regarding legal matters in the future. Thanks for all of your help Kirill & Angie.”
