The Serious Nature of Spinal Cord Injuries
Depending upon the extent of damage sustained, spinal cord injuries can have varying symptoms that may or may not prove permanent. Some spinal trauma causes nerve damage that is temporary and eventually resolves fully. However, most victims will unfortunately suffer long-term, debilitating symptoms. The most serious spinal cord injuries result in paraplegia (loss of sensation and mobility in the lower half of the body) or quadriplegia, which is paralysis that extends from the neck down.
Virtually any type of spinal cord injury will require extensive medical treatment and may result in loss of productivity to some degree. Some victims require domestic assistance, advanced medical equipment, and even extensive home remodeling or a move to a new location. In many cases, the injury causes significant financial hardship for the victim and his or her family as the ability to earn income is lost or permanently altered.
Spinal Cord Injury Cases
Motor vehicle accidents, including truck accidents and pedestrian accidents, are one of the most common causes of spinal cord injuries. Other common causes of spinal cord injuries include slip and fall accidents and undiagnosed diseases. When this type of life-altering injury is the direct result of an individual or business' negligence, the victim is entitled to financial compensation. Negligence can take the form of a careless driver, irresponsible property owner, or medical malpractice, among other examples.
