Spinal cord injuries that are the result of an accident are often traumatic, life-changing injuries that affect, not only the victim, but friends and family alike. They may be even more difficult to bear when they are caused by the negligence of someone else.
Spinal cord injuries can cause partial paralysis or quadriplegia in a matter of seconds. Around 85 percent of spinal cord injury victims will survive if they are treated within 24 hours of their injury. Some of these survivors may need machines to help them breathe and around the clock care. Some things you may be facing include:
• Prescription medication for life
• Wheel chairs and other moveable aids
• Modified vehicles with lifts or hand controls
• Expensive home modifications
For those fortunate enough to not become paralyzed, recovery is often a long road.
If your spinal cord injury is the result of another party’s negligence, you may deserve compensation for:
• Lost wages
• Diminished capacity for earning
• Pain and suffering
• Diminished quality of life
