Damages can be catastrophic
In most Spinal Cord Injury cases, the vertebral spine column sustains trauma, affecting the spine’s ability to send and receive sensory messages from the brain. This affects the body’s ability to control sensory, motor, and autonomic functions below where the injury was sustained. This is a life-altering injury that should not be dealt with lightly. If you or a loved one has suffered a spinal cord injury, you could be entitled to significant compensation.
Causes of spinal cord injuries
Spinal cord injuries sustained during a motor vehicle accident, maritime accident, 18-wheeler accident, industrial accident, surgery, fall, or a work-related injury that is due to the negligence of another individual. Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of Spinal Cord Injuries in younger demographics. It is also a common cause of disability or death in adults and children.
Legal issues in Spinal Cord Injury Cases
Personal injury suits require the plaintiff to prove the defendant acted with negligence, carelessness, or recklessness in addition to causation.
