Suffering a spinal cord injury can be devastating for the person injured and his or her family because, as Riverside spinal cord injury attorneys know, the physical and financial burdens that accompany spinal cord injuries are substantial and distressing. Life as victims and their families once knew it changes in an instant and families find themselves distraught and overwhelmed. Our attorneys have been through spinal cord injuries with clients and helped them secure significant financial recoveries to help with medical expenses and other damages.
Spinal cord injuries can have serious consequences including paralysis and loss of bodily functions. Spinal cord injury sufferers often lose feeling and sensations and they sometimes require around the clock care due to the severity of their injuries. In other spinal cord injury cases, impacts may include breathing problems and chronic pain. Unfortunately, these serious injuries frequently lead to an inability to work or a restricted ability to work.
See below for activities and accidents that are common causes of spinal cord injuries.
Even in workplace accidents, good attorneys will look for every possible responsible party, especially those outside of the injured victim’s employer so that they are able to recover for injuries and damages outside of a workers’ compensation. Financial recoveries should also include medical expenses and the cost of future necessary medical care related to accident injuries such as surgeries, rehabilitation, medical devices, and other injury accommodations. Additional recovery may include lost income and loss of future income when injuries prevent a return to work. Spinal cord injuries often result in severe pain and suffering which is also recoverable in personal injury cases.
