What is a Spinal Cord Injury?
When the spinal cord is damaged, it can result in partial or full loss of motor control, sensations and even result in immense pain. A person could be permanently paralyzed partially or fully as well. And, because your spinal cord is responsible for multiple body functions such as breathing, controlling your bladder or even moving your head, even a minor spinal cord injury could permanently change your quality of life.
What Causes Spinal Cord Injuries?
These types of injuries can occur in multiple types of accidents. Some of the most common include:
- Car Accidents
- Acts of Violence – Such as Stabbing or Gun Shots
- Recreational Sports
- Medical Malpractice and Medical Error
Filing a Lawsuit for Spinal Cord Injuries
With these types of complex cases, you need a personal injury attorney. Your attorney will have to decide which route to take with your claim, which includes negligence or defective products.
- Injuries Caused by Negligence – This category encompasses a full range of situations, including accidents, injuries caused by other people, etc. Most personal injury cases involving spinal cord injuries are due to negligence.
- Injuries Cause by a Defective Product(s) – Dangerous or defective products, such as an airbag that does not deploy in an accident, falls on the manufacturer of that product. The company that designed, installed or sold the product that caused your spinal cord injury is responsible for that injury and any losses you suffered.
Seeking Compensation for Your Spinal Cord Injury
The compensation given in these types of cases is often very high – especially because of the long-term costs and extreme losses associated with this type of injury. Because every case is different, there is no set dollar amount for compensation.
Instead, personal injury lawyers will calculate your losses, medical costs (current and future), loss of earning capacity (if you are disabled) and even the changes in your lifestyle. For example, if you are permanently paralyzed, you may receive more compensation than a person who is not paralyzed from aspinal cord injury.
