Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal Cord InjuryThe spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that runs through the back. When it is injured, it can cause loss of mobility and sensation. It is typically a very forceful impact that damages the spinal cord. This is a permanent injury that is one of the worst types of personal injuries anyone can possibly sustain. When this injury is caused by an accident, there may be compensation available to the injured party.

An injury to the spinal cord is a catastrophic injury that can bring about partial (paraplegia) or total (quadriplegia) paralysis. Partial paralysis results from injury to the areas of the spinal cord found in the lumbar, thoracic, and sacral areas of the spine. For total paralysis, the cervical spine is the portion of the spine that is injured. Regardless of the extent or type of injury to the spinal cord suffered, these injuries not only devastate the victim, but the victim’s family as well.

The aftermath of a spinal cord injury will bring extensive and expensive medical treatment, significant lost income, as well as the need for lifelong, ongoing specialized medical care. The medical bills and lost wages can run in the millions.

Many people who suffer an injury to the spinal cord due to negligence understandably want to pursue legal action in order to receive needed financial compensation to cover all of their damages brought about by this permanent and catastrophic injury. With this injury, identifying all potential parties and all available insurance policies that can be reached is critical.

Spinal cord damage can result from any type of accident. Oftentimes it is a motor vehicle crash that can lead to spinal cord damage. Or, a slip and fall or accident at work can also bring on this type of injury. Sometimes it can be the result of an error by a physician, giving rise to a potential claim for medical malpractice. Any type of accident can cause an injury to the spinal cord. When that happens, the medical bills can be staggeringly high. 

An attorney can help you to pursue compensation against the person or company that caused the spinal injury. A claim is made and the insurance company for the person or company will investigate the case, and if necessary, will pay out a settlement to the injured party. Depending on who was responsible for causing the injury, there may or may not be available insurance to pursue. In fact, in some situations, there is no insurance to collect whatsoever.
