What is a Spinal Cord Injury?
The spinal cord is the set of nerves that live within the spinal column. These nerves are essential because they carry messages between the brain and the body and are responsible for a range of functions including breathing, motor function and bladder control. When a person’s spinal cord becomes damaged, it can leave victims paralyzed as well as other serious health problems.
Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries
Any hard blow to the spine can cause a spinal cord dysfunction. These impacts could be from a car accident, violent act or even a fall. In some cases, spinal cord injuries are caused by the error of a doctor during a risky surgery and could result in a malpractice suit.
Spinal Injury Lawsuits & Compensation
There are several different types of spinal injury lawsuits depending on the type of injury and the situation in which it occurred. Most cases fall under an injury caused by either the negligence of another (i.e. car accident, workplace fall) or a defective product.
Since these types of injuries can alter a person’s life permanently, the compensation for incurred medical expenses, pain & suffering, etc. is usually more extensive. The damages won can include ongoing expenses as well – such as rehabilitation, assistive devices or care and home modifications.
Spinal cord injury lawsuits are usually more complex and require a personal injury lawyer with extensive experience. At Wooden Law Firm, we have experience with complex spine cases.
