The seriousness of a spinal cord injury

If you suffer any type of injury, regardless of the cause, you hope that you can receive fast and effective treatment. Unfortunately, some types of injuries are more difficult to treat than others.
A spinal cord injury, for example, can change your life forever. In many cases, there is no such thing as a full recovery. Instead, all you can do is hope to regain some control of your life.

There are many causes of spinal cord injuries, with motor vehicle accidents at the top of the list.

However, don’t overlook the fact that this injury could be the result of a slip and fall accident or surgical error.

If you or a loved one suffers a spinal cord injury, immediate care is a must. Along with this, make sure you’re working with an experienced and reputable medical team.

At some point, you need to determine if a negligent party was responsible for causing the accident that led to your injury. In this case, you may be able to receive compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Future medical bills
  • Wheelchairs
  • Cost of home renovations to make it more accessible
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of future income
  • Pain and suffering
