Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries

Any accident can cause a wide array of injuries. Injuries to the spin can produce damage to bones, discs, or nerves that can cause a loss of feeling in different areas of the body. Common causes of spinal cord injuries include:

Any damage to the spine is a serious concern. It is not advisable to try to resolve these claims on your own, rather you should consult with an experienced spinal cord injury attorney. These claims can take years to complete, but a qualified attorney can navigate you through the process to quickly and effectively receive compensation.

Damages in Spinal Cord Injury Cases

Insurance companies are in the practice of settling claims as soon as possible. They will look at past claims, statistics, and charts to determine how much compensation a claim is worth. An attorney, however, will look at the medical records, lost wages, and any other damages to determine how much a claim is worth. For example, insurance companies will not calculate how much future earnings will be lost due to a client’s permanent injury.

Many cases settle, but claims can be litigated if necessary. Plaintiffs will usually sue for these damages:

  • Costs associated with medical treatment
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Prescriptions
  • Transportation costs
  • Legal fees and costs

Who Bears Liability for a Spinal Injury Case?

It may be determined that you contributed to your own injury. This does not mean you should not seek compensation for your injury. The Newberry Spinal Cord Injury Attorneys at the Strom Law Firm will investigate the circumstances surrounding the accident, talk to appropriate witnesses involved, and determine who is liable. Our attorneys will also look at how these parties could have prevented the injuries.

Types of Spinal Cord Injuries

There are two general classifications of spinal cord injuries:

Complete spinal cord injuries include permanent damage to the affected area of the spinal cord. Conditions in which all the sensory and motor functions are lost, your injury would be considered complete.

Incomplete spinal cord injuries encompass partial damage to the affected area of the spinal cord. An injury considered incomplete would mean there is limited motor and sensory function.

The most common types of spinal cord injuries include:

  • Tetraplegia: Arms, hands, trunk, legs, and pelvic organs are all affected. This is commonly known as quadriplegia and is paralysis in all limbs.
  • Paraplegia: Paralysis affecting all or part of the trunk, legs, and pelvic organs. You may lose mobility or even lose all feeling in the lower part of your body.
  • Triplegia: Loss of mobility and sensation in a single-arm and both legs resulting as a result of an incomplete spinal cord injury.

Spinal Cord Injury Signs and Symptoms

The best Spinal Cord Injury lawyers agree that you must seek immediate medical attention if you suffer any type of spinal cord injury. There could be long-term problems and severe complications as a result of not obtaining the necessary treatment. Spinal cord injuries can cause paralysis in varying degrees, but there are a few signs and symptoms that can help you determine your need for medical attention. If there is a remote possibility you have suffered an injury to your spinal cord because of an accident, you should look for the following:

  • Loss of movement
  • Loss or altered sensations (unable to feel heat, cold, and touch)
  • Incontinence
  • Exaggerated reflexes
  • Changes in sexual function and fertility
  • Pain or intense stinging sensation
  • Difficulty breathing, coughing, or clearing secretions from the lungs

My experience with Mario and his staff was outstanding. When everyone said to give up my case with SSDI and after being poorly represented and losing. I had to file my own appeals and represent myself. I literally called every attorney in the book. Then I called Mario cold – I expected one more no! Well, this gentleman took my case and won. He knows the law and cares a lot. I am proud to call him my friend. If you need a professional to help you, call these guys.

A Lifesaver in the Courtroom, Ensuring Freedom with A1 Professionalism
Needed a lifesaver. I had gotten myself into a bad situation and the possibility of going to prison. Through the diligence and hard work done by attorney Alley B., I was able to walk out of that courtroom a free man. No tricks just hard down attorney work. She was an A1 professional and knew every inch of the Law pertaining to my case. For that, I am forever grateful.
