Spinal cord injuries occur when a traumatic event causes damage to the spinal cord, affecting nerve messages throughout the body. The Wilton Law Firm spinal cord injury lawyers have years of experience representing those who have suffered various types of spinal cord injuries. The leading causes of spinal cord injuries are vehicular accidents, workplace accidents, diving accidents, electric shocks, bullet and stab wounds, falls, and sports injuries. Only 40% of the people who suffer paraplegia are able to return to work, and only 30% of quadriplegia victims resume normal duties.
Injuries to the spine and spinal cord often leave victims with permanent paralysis and disabilities. The medical care, rehabilitation and lifelong treatment costs can put substantial financial strain on a family. If you or someone you love sustained a spinal cord injury due to another’s negligence, you are entitled to compensation.
For the victim of a spinal injury, it’s important to be patient and follow your doctor’s treatment plan for your recovery. If you discontinue treatment, the insurance company responsible for paying your bills will assume that you are no longer injured. You should not accept a settlement offer until you have reached what is known as maximum medical improvement. Only then will you know how the spinal injury will affect your life in the future.
As the victim of another party’s negligence, you deserve full compensation for everything you have lost, including: past and future medical expenses; past and future lost wages; pain and suffering; and loss of enjoyment of life.
