What Causes Spinal Cord Injuries?

Spinal injuries can be caused by many things, but the leading cause of spinal injuries in the United States among older adults is motor vehicle crashes, according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine.

However, spinal cord injuries can be caused by quite a large number of factors, including but not limited to:

  • Slip-and-falls
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Sporting injuries
  • Defective products
  • Workplace and/or construction accidents
  • Birth injuries
  • Boating accidents
  • Criminal violence

Spinal Cord Injury Impacts

The spine is a uniquely vulnerable part of the body, and an injury to it can have wide-ranging effects on your body and well-being. Even minor ones can last longer than you would like.

Because of the role of the spine, injuries to it affect other parts of your body — trauma to your lower back can cause symptoms to show up in your legs, while an injury closer to your neck can cause problems in your arms and hands. Other effects impacting different parts of the body include incontinence and erectile dysfunction.

Simply put, an injury to your spinal cord can wreak havoc on your body. Often in moderate to severe cases, surgery is required to bring you back to even the slightest sense of normalcy. In the event your spinal cord is completely severed, there is no procedure to mend it. A severed spinal cord can result in the partial or total loss of use of your limbs.

With so many medical procedures necessary for so many types of spinal injuries, the expenses can pile up quicker than you think, and suddenly, you may owe quite a bit of money to a hospital or medical professional. The prospect of necessary treatment down the line and future medical expenses can be daunting for spinal cord injury victims, as well.

How an Attorney Can Help

It is essential for a spinal injury victim to retain an attorney with significant experience in navigating insurance company settlement tactics. Often, insurance companies will offer a quick settlement in an attempt to catch victims in moments of weakness, even though the settlement is inadequate for your injuries.

Together with medical experts, our attorneys have helped spinal cord injury and back injury victims recover the compensation they need to help cover expenses like present and future medical bills, lost earnings, pain and suffering, among other damages. We do this by performing an extremely thorough investigation into your case.

In this investigation, your attorney may:

  • Conduct witness interviews
  • Review medical records, gather evidence, and photograph the scene of the accident
  • Work with orthopedic surgeons, pain management specialists, and vocational rehabilitation experts to assess the injuries suffered and develop a treatment plan
  • Work with financial planners to calculate the value of expected future lost wages and income
  • Determine whether the victim is covered by a workers’ compensation program (for workplace accidents)

This investigation allows us to build a compelling case that claims that your spinal cord was injured due to the negligence of someone else and that the injury will necessitate significant compensation for damages.
