What is a Spinal Cord Injury?
Spinal cord injuries occur when the spinal cord, which is a bundle of nerves inside the spinal column, are damaged. This can result in a partial or full loss of sensation and control. The injuries may leave victims paralyzed in certain parts or all over. Because the spinal cord controls bodily functions, a person’s life will be forever changed from their injury.
Why Spinal Cord Injuries Happen
There are numerous ways a person could suffer from a spinal cord injury. Basically any type of trauma to the spine can lead to a serious injury. The most common, however, include:
In spinal cord injury cases, there are typically two types of cases used for filing an injury lawsuit, which include:
- Injury Caused by Negligence – This is the most common and can include car accidents, violence or even medical error. If you or a loved one has suffered from a spinal cord injury because of someone’s negligence, you may have a case.
- Injury from Defective Products – Defective products can also lead to spinal cord damage. For example, a faulty seatbelt in a vehicle caused a person’s spinal cord injury or forced the injury to be worse than if the seatbelt functioned properly. In these types of product liability cases, you may have multiple parties responsible for your losses.
Receiving Compensation for a Spinal Cord Injury
A spinal cord injury often carries substantial medical costs. As a victim, you could receive compensation for your medical bills, disability, lost wages, loss of enjoyment, pain and suffering, and rehabilitation costs.
