Leading Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries and Your Rights

Spinal cord injuries can arise from various situations, each potentially bringing life-altering consequences. Some of the common causes include:

  • Automobile Accidents: Collisions on the road can result in traumatic spinal cord injuries due to the force and impact involved.
  • Slip and Fall Accidents: Property owners are responsible for maintaining safe premises. When negligence results in a slip and fall accident, spinal cord injuries can occur.
  • Medical Malpractice: Surgical errors, misdiagnoses, and other medical negligence can lead to spinal cord injuries.
  • Workplace Accidents: Jobs involving heavy machinery, construction, or manual labor pose risks that, if not managed properly, can lead to spinal cord injuries.
  • Sports Injuries: Contact sports or accidents during recreational activities can result in severe spinal cord injuries.
  • Acts of Violence: Assaults or intentional harm inflicted on an individual can cause irreparable damage to the spinal cord.
  • Defective Products: Poorly designed products or equipment can malfunction, leading to accidents that cause spinal cord injuries.

What Damages Could Be Recovered in a Spinal Cord Injury Claim?

The impacts of a spinal cord injury can entail extensive medical bills, ongoing rehabilitation, lost wages, and emotional distress. In a spinal cord injury claim, various types of damages may be recoverable:

  • Medical Expenses: This includes hospitalization, surgery, medication, rehabilitation, and any necessary medical devices or modifications to the home for accessibility.
  • Lost Wages and Future Earnings: If the injury leads to the inability to work temporarily or permanently, compensation for lost wages and potential future earnings can be pursued.
  • Pain and Suffering: Physical pain, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life can all contribute to a pain and suffering claim.
  • Home Modifications: Spinal cord injuries often require modifications to the home to accommodate new mobility needs.
  • Assistive Devices: Wheelchairs, prosthetics, and other assistive devices required for daily living should be covered in the claim.
  • Physical and Occupational Therapy: Ongoing therapy and rehabilitation costs can be substantial and should be factored into the claim.
  • Loss of Consortium: Spinal cord injuries can strain relationships, and compensation may be sought for the impact on a spouse's companionship and support.
  • Punitive Damages: In cases of excessive negligence or intentional harm, punitive damages may be awarded to punish the responsible party.
