Spinal Cord Injuries

Consequences of a Spinal Cord Injury

If you have suffered any type of injury in an accident caused by another person, you deserve to receive full compensation for your losses. This is particularly true in the case of spinal cord injuries, since this catastrophic injury will often have devastating, life-changing consequences for the victim. The spinal cord is among the most vital organs in the body, as it enables the brain to monitor and control the various muscles and organs through the central nervous system. Even relatively minor injuries to the spinal cord can result in numbness and organ dysfunction, while more serious damage may result in total paralysis in the affected area. Paraplegia and quadriplegia are common types of spinal cord injury, conditions which can leave the individual partially or totally debilitated for life.

In addition to the victim's pain and loss of physical capability, it is important to take account of the astonishing financial impact of a spinal cord injury. Individuals who suffer this type of injury will often require extensive emergency care, surgery and an extended stay in the hospital, as well as ongoing rehabilitative treatment and even equipment or modifications to the home to accommodate a disability. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that a spinal cord injury victim can expect to pay between $15,000 and $30,000 per year and up to $3 million over the course of a lifetime in medical costs alone. In addition to these expenses, the individual may not be able to earn the same income as before the accident, or might even have been forced out of work altogether. Given the seriousness of the situation, it is vital that you take legal action to recover the largest possible settlement for your injuries.
