Tavares 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.

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. Combined with a possible 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 Tavares who will fight for your best interests from the very start.
