Consequences of a Spinal Cord Injury

Among the most devastating injuries any individual may sustain are those to the spinal cord. Potentially, spinal cord injuries can leave individuals partially or totally paralyzed, among a host of other related effects. The medical costs alone can be staggering, but when an individual’s capacity to earn an income is reduced, the financial impact of a spinal cord injury can leave any individual and their family in a frightening situation. As such, legal representation may be critical to hold the responsible party financially accountable for their negligence or recklessness.

Severe Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries vary in their severity, but two of the most serious injuries are as follows:

  • Paraplegia, or partial paralysis
  • Quadriplegia, or total paralysis

Treating these injuries can be a lengthy, costly process that can leave individuals and families financially devastated. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you determine the actual financial impact that a spinal cord injury is likely to incur and help you prepare a case to pursue financial restitution in the civil court system.
