Spinal Cord Injuries
The U.S. National Library of Medicine defines spinal cord trauma as damage to the spinal cord resulting from “direct injury to the cord itself or indirectly from damage to surrounding bones, tissues or blood vessels.” “Spinal cord injury causes weakness and sensory loss at and below the point of the injury.” Spinal cord injuries cause damage to the nerves that deliver motor signals from the brain to the rest of the body and render the injured unable to function normally.
Spinal cord injures can result from:
- Motor vehicle accidents, including automobile, ATV, bicycle, boating, Jetski and motorcycle accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Construction related accidents
- Slip or trip and fall accidents
- Sports related injuries
Spinal cord injuries can include:
- Fractured Vertebrae
Suffering a spinal cord injury is emotionally traumatic on both the injured and their family.
Most spinal cord injury patients never fully recover and require a lifetime of medical care. Lifetime medical care can lead to increased expenses, which can include making the injured’s home handicap accessible and purchasing expensive medical equipment. Additionally, after suffering a spinal cord injury, the injured is unable to work or bring in the income they once did. If you or a loved one has suffered a spinal cord injury as a result of another person’s negligence, you are entitled to be compensated for your injuries. You can recover compensation for any medical expenses incurred, lost and future income, pain and suffering and any scarring or disfigurement caused by the accident.
