One of the most serious injuries that can happen to a person is a spinal cord injury. Spinal cord injuries are often completely life-changing and have significant physical, financial, and emotional impacts. When an individual suffers a spinal cord injury because of the negligence of another party, they may want to consider their legal options. A successful personal injury lawsuit can allow an individual to recover significant compensation that can go towards medical bills, rehabilitation, lost wages, future loss of income, and even noneconomic burdens the individual may face.
As mentioned, spinal cord injuries are very serious and may even result in either paraplegia or quadriplegia. In addition, the injured party may suffer from additional issues, such as:
- central cord syndrome
- spinal contusions
- anterior cord syndrome
Spinal cord injuries also often result in other health problems for the victim, such as bladder issues, bowel issues, chronic pain, respiratory issues, and more. Clearly, spinal cord injuries can put a complete halt to the life of someone who was once very active. Spinal cord injuries often occur as a result of motor vehicle accidents, slip and falls, medical malpractice, or accidents in the workplace.
