Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries
- Violent acts
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Spinal cord tumors
- Motorcycle accidents
What Are the Symptoms of a Spinal Cord Injury?
- Weakness in the body
- Numbness in the body
- Difficulty breathing
- Difficulty moving or feeling the body
In some cases, a spinal cord injury can lead to complete paralysis, making it difficult to perform even the most basic functions difficult. You may be unable to move, feel sensations, or even breathe on your own. Some victims rely on a ventilator to breathe and other medical equipment to perform other functions.
What Are the Treatment Options for a Spinal Cord Injury?
- Medical care
- Ventilator care
- Speech therapy
- Physical therapy
- Occupational therapy
These treatments are costly. Often, people spend millions recovering from spinal injuries, and they spend even more on the equipment they need to live normally.
Our team is here to help you recover these expenses and receive damages for your pain and suffering.
The Financial Cost of a Spinal Injury
A spinal injury can severely affect your physical well-being, and it also does significant damage to your finances.
Expenses you can face include:
- Ongoing care
- Hospital stays
The expense of ongoing care alone can be astronomical. If an injury leaves you paralyzed, you must completely readjust your entire life. You may need to upgrade your home, making it more disability-friendly. Your car must also be replaced or upgraded as well. Even if you lose the ability to drive, you will need a vehicle with a lift that can safely get you in and out. Moreover, you may need continued access to medical devices and supplies, depending on the severity of your injury.
A spinal injury can also have lasting effects on your ability to earn an income. The physical limitations of the injury make certain jobs impossible. People often lose their ability to work, or they must seek completely different career paths.
When you total all these expenses, you’ll find that the cost of a spinal injury can easily skyrocket into hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars. This expense puts a victim’s financial stability at serious risk.
As the victim of someone else’s negligence, you don’t deserve what has happened to you. Not only are you suffering physically, but you are also scraping by economically. Our firm fights hard for its clients. We understand the position you are in, and we will treat your case with care and compassion. With us on your team, you may be able to recover any money you’ve spent, receive money for ongoing medical treatment, and obtain even more for your pain and suffering.

How Much Compensation Can I Receive for a Spinal Cord Injury?
The amount of compensation you can receive for a spinal cord injury varies depending on the circumstances of the case.
In many cases, victims receive compensation for:
- Lost wages
- Lifetime care
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
Insurance companies often deny these claims, arguing that the victim's injury did not cause paralysis. When you are having trouble getting the help you need, our team can stand by your side and fight for your necessary, owed benefits.
