Spinal Cord Injuries and the Law
Spinal cord injuries can be the source of great physical pain and life change. In severe cases, back injury can result in paralysis or amputation. After experiencing a spinal cord injury, many of the injured experience permanent life changes. Not only is mobility forever changed, the emotional and financial stresses can be incapacitating.
Some of the financial compensation that Chris J. Roy, Jr. APLC may be able to negotiate for you includes:
- past and future medical bills
- lost wages and earning capacity
- loss of normal, everyday life
- pain and suffering
Spine injuries cause damage when they disrupt the nervous system processes of sending signals to the body via the spinal cord. Common types of back injuries include bruising. More severe injuries can cause a loss of reflex below the injured area or paralysis. The loss of reflex can cause a loss of sensation and the inability to control bodily functions. Generally, most spinal cord injuries are irreversible. Often, ongoing treatment and modifications to living areas are needed to assist the injured party with their daily functions and quality of life.
The common ways that a spinal injury can occur are due to age, sports injuries and auto accidents. To have a valid claim, a lawyer must be able to prove that your injury exists and was not pre-existing prior to the accident. At that point, the attorney must prove that another person was the cause of the injury. Often the lawsuit will require special experts to prove medical injury, the ongoing cost of medical treatment and other issues caused by the injury. These experts exist to attest to the validity of the claim being made by the person experiencing the spinal injury.
