Spinal Cord Injury Claims: Do You Have A Case?
Spinal cord injuries can be one of the most earth-shattering situations a person can endure. In most cases, injuries are caused by auto accidents, a fall, doctor mistakes or workplace accidents. The damages afterward can result in paralysis, loss of sensation, lifetime health trauma, and permanent disability. Proving fault can be complex and legally challenging. With an experienced injury lawyer, you may recover maximum compensation for medical expenses, rehabilitative care, lost income, and loss of earning capacity.
Types of Spinal Injuries
- Cervical Spinal Cord Injuries – Head and neck region above the shoulders
- Lumbar Spinal Cord Injuries – Hips and legs
- Thoracic Spinal Cord Injuries – Upper chest, mid-back, and abdominal muscles
- Sacral Spinal Cord Injuries – Hips, back of the thighs, buttocks, and pelvic organs
- Complete Spinal Cord Injuries – permanent damage to the area of the spinal cord
- Incomplete Spinal Cord Injuries – partial damage to the spinal cord
If You Suffered A Spinal Cord Injury, Can You Collect Money in a Lawsuit?
You need a spinal cord injury attorney working for you to maximize your claim. Your injury will likely require long hospital stays, medical equipment, physical and vocational rehabilitation, and other forms of expensive therapies. If your spinal cord injury left you a paraplegic or quadriplegic, your care could cost hundreds of thousands, even millions, of dollars. You also deserve to be reimbursed for the wages you lose while you are incapacitated or if you are disabled. You should also receive financial compensation for your suffering if another person or entity caused your accident. Some states even allow you to sue for punitive damages. Spinal cord injury cases can result in large settlements and awards.
