Spinal cord injuries can be caused by many traumatic events, such as a car, truck, or motorcycle accidents, swimming pool accident, sports injury, falling, and other similar forceful events.

Different Types of Spinal Cord Injuries

The degree of a spinal cord injury can vary greatly, but common injuries include:

  • Quadriplegia – neck down paralysis
  • Paraplegia – waist down paralysis
  • Nerve damage – shooting, burning pain; lack of function
  • Loss of feeling – tingling and numbness resulting in inability to feel and hold things
  • Loss of control – such as bladder or bowel issues
  • Loss of motor function – inability to control movements and muscles

A powerhouse injury law firm with 30+ years of handling catastrophic, life-changing injuries will guide and support you throughout the entire process. In addition to championing your legal rights with a spinal cord lawsuit, your spinal cord injury lawyer will also fight to maximize your recovery to secure your financial situation, and assist in getting you the best medical attention possible.

Compensable Damages from a Spinal Cord Injury

  • Medical care (including nursing home care, wheelchairs, etc.)
  • Lost income and earning capacity (and costs of retraining and re-education)
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Property damage and the cost of making your house and car accessible for your disability
  • If married, your spouse may be entitled to loss of consortium damages.

Find Out If You Have a Claim

Unlike other injuries, most spinal cord injuries are life-long and include major life changes, disruption, and devastation. Factors that contribute to your financial compensation after a spinal cord injury accident include your age, activity level before the accident, your standard of living and employment before the accident, the cost of past medical care, the anticipated cost of future medical care, and the available insurance and assets of at-fault parties.
