One of the most serious injuries a person can sustain is a spinal cord injury. The spinal cord is an extremely delicate system in our body that controls nearly every motor function we use in our daily lives from walking to shaking hands. Nearly any kind of trauma to the spinal cord can cause partial or full paralysis and/or chronic pain.
If you or a loved one has been even partially paralyzed due to a spinal cord injury, you should seek help from a catastrophic injury attorney right away. We often find that spinal cord injury victims are not at fault for their injury, but rather it was caused in an auto accident or a sporting accident. If you are not at fault for your accident, you have a right to seek compensation from the at-fault party’s insurance company.
What Injuries are Associated with Spinal Cord Injury?
Like any other injury, a spinal cord injury can range in severity and can be associated with injuries to different areas of your body.
You may have a spinal cord injury if any of these other injuries are present:
- Paralysis in any part of the body (paraplegia, tetraplegia, quadriplegia and paresthesia)
- Neck injuries including “whiplash” or neck fractures causing chronic pain and/or pinched nerves
- Serious back injuries including broken vertebrae, herniated discs and pinched nerves causing spinal cord injury or chronic, debilitating pain
Significant Cost of Care for Spinal Cord Injuries
With a catastrophic injury such as spinal cord damage, a victim will encounter a host of challenges for the rest of his or her life. These challenges include: loss of feeling, chronic pain, paralysis and even death.
The medical care needed with a spinal cord injury can create an enormous financial burden. The financial damages may include the cost of some or all of the following:
- Initial hospitalization
- Rehabilitation and physical therapy
- Temporary or permanent caregiver costs
- Medical equipment such as wheel chairs
- Adapting your home environment to a physical impairment
- Lost wages now and in the future, often due to the inability to ever return to work
Without an experienced spinal injury lawyer to represent you, you may not realize the full cost of damages that have been created by the accident. This is especially true when there will be significant future costs. This type of injury can mean financial devastation. You deserve every penny of available compensation to ease this hardship.
