Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries
Our legal team has handled all sorts of personal injury cases throughout our many collective years of practice experience. The insight and knowledge we have gained from winning those cases translate directly to advantages for your spinal cord injury claim. No matter what type of accident or incident caused you to suffer such a catastrophic injury, you can trust us to know how to research and investigate it to the fullest of our abilities.
Spinal cord injuries tend to happen in violent or sudden accidents, such as:
Each type of accident will come with unique types of evidence, which our team knows how to find and utilize. For example, if you were hit by a commercial truck or tractor-trailer, then we could see if that truck was equipped with a “black box” device that tracked its speed and recorded how many breaks the trucker took during that shift.
Symptoms of Spinal Cord Injuries
The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that cannot heal itself in most situations after it has been injured or severed. More often than not, spinal cord injuries are life-changing and permanent for this reason.
Lifelong symptoms of a spinal cord injury can include:
- Limited mobility
- Tingling sensation
- Loss of bowel control
The severity and permanence of your injuries should be factored into your case’s value. Because you will probably be impacted by your injury in some way for the rest of your life, the compensation you are owed should be higher than the average injury claim, especially when considering non-economic damages like pain and suffering.
Can Spinal Cord Injuries Be Treated?
Treatments for spinal cord injuries vary. Oftentimes, some form of surgery is required, which carries its own risks of side effects and further harm. Physical therapy is also required in most cases, and not just a few sessions. Spinal cord injury survivors may require years and years of frequent rehabilitative therapy sessions until they get to a point where they can comfortably care for themselves, or the chronic pain of the injury is minimized.
We want to make certain you get the compensation that pays for all your medical costs, both past and future. When everything is added up – like years of specialized care – it is not unusual for a spinal cord injury case’s value to exceed six figures.
