Fort Lauderdale Spinal Cord Injuries

Your spinal cord is contained by bones and membranes, but despite this layer of protection, the spine is among the most vulnerable parts of the body, and even a minor back injury can have devastating impacts on your health and mobility.

Spinal cord injuries are also among the most expensive injuries to treat. Victims of a spinal cord injury can be crushed by the debt that comes with hospital visits, rehabilitation, treatments, and other expensive medical bills — especially if their injuries are long-term or permanent.

That’s why it is essential that spinal cord injury victims and their families have their best interests protected from the very start by an experienced attorney. Our spinal cord injury attorneys at Morgan & Morgan have decades of experience helping families get the compensation they need for recovery and financial stability.

If you or someone you love has sustained a spinal cord injury, fill out our free, no-risk case evaluation form today. Our attorneys in Fort Lauderdale will fight for the compensation you need while you focus on your recovery.

  • Common Types of Neck, Spinal Cord, and Back Injuries in Fort Lauderdale

    The severity of the car accident often determines the seriousness of your neck, spinal cord, and back injury. A minor fender bender may only give you a sore shoulder from a seatbelt or something a little more serious like whiplash. However, even an accident with minor vehicle damage can still result in severe injuries. Here are some of the common neck, spinal cord, and back injuries.

    • Cervical spinal cord injury.
    • Injury to the lumbar vertebrae
    • A thoracic spine injury
    • Disc herniation
    • Facet joint injuries

    If you have a pre-existing back injury, a car accident can cause spinal stenosis. If you are suffering from any of these injuries, the attorneys at Morgan & Morgan can help you receive compensation.

  • Devastating Impacts of Spinal Cord Injuries

    Whether the spinal cord injury was caused by a medical error, traffic accident, workplace accident, sports, or a slip and fall, it can have a devastating impact on the lives of victims.

    Symptoms may range from pain, weakness, and incontinence to loss of sensation, paralysis, and ruptured discs. Some of these symptoms may be alleviated by spinal surgery, rehabilitation, and other expensive treatments.

    In the most severe cases, where the spinal cord is completely severed, paraplegia (paralysis of the lower body) or tetraplegia (paralysis of all four limbs or total body paralysis) can occur, according to Mayo Clinic. Technology is currently unable to repair a severed spine, though medical science is slowly getting closer to a solution.

    Regardless of whether your spinal cord injury is moderate to severe, the medical bills can be crushing, and if combined with a loss of income and earning potential, these expenses can create serious financial hardships for your family.

    In fact, a victim of paraplegia can expect to incur more than $500,000 in medical and other expenses in the first year after the injury and nearly $70,000 each following year. That’s why it is so important to consult with an experienced spinal cord injury attorney in Fort Lauderdale who will fight for your best interests from the very start.

  • What Compensation Could You Receive?

    Economic: You may be able to receive damages for your current and future medical bills and loss of income during recovery if you are the victim of a spinal cord injury. If your injuries are severe enough that you are no longer able to work, you could also receive damages for loss of earning capacity.

    Noneconomic: Victims of spinal cord injuries could receive compensation for pain and suffering and mental anguish. In more severe cases of injury, victims and their families may receive compensation for permanent disability, disfigurement, or paralysis.

    Wrongful Death: In worst case scenarios, when a spinal cord injury is fatal, the victim's family may be eligible for damages based on the pain and suffering of the victim, funeral expenses, and other compensation to ease the financial burden left by their loved one’s death.
