HELPING VICTIMS OF SPINAL CORD INJURY ACCIDENTS

Spinal cord injuries can be one of the most life-threatening injuries caused by an auto accident, a fall or some other cause. The impact on the lives of the victim and families can be devastating and extremely costly. If you or a family member has been suffered spinal cord injuries, you need to contact a skilled personal injury lawyer in Sacramento CA who can file a lawsuit and get you the compensation you deserve.

Approximately 11,000 people in America experience a traumatic spinal cord injury (TSCI). The spinal cord is a crucial component to our bodies. They carry vital and sensitive nerves that act as messengers to speak between our brain and the rest of our body. If the spinal cord is injured, not only could you experience life long chronic pain, but you could lose control of bodily functions.

Effects of Spinal Cord Injuries

Because the spinal cord is responsible for a range of bodily functions, victims can suffer a broad range of problems. The immediate effects of spinal cord injuries can range from minor to severe:

  • Loss of feeling
  • Loss of range of motion
  • Changes in sexual behavior
  • Muscle spasms
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Quadriplegia
  • Paraplegia
  • Death

Long term effects can vary as well. Injuries that result in a victim losing both the feeling and the ability to move his or her body below the area where the spinal trauma has occurred is called a “complete” spinal cord injury. When an individual still has some feeling and movement in the region below the impacted region is known as an “incomplete” spinal injury. It is difficult to tell the extent of the long term effects of spinal cord injuries. It’s important a medical expert gives a proper examination and analysis of your injury.

Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries

According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center, the common causes of spinal cord injury are:

  • Auto accidents – 42.1% of spinal cord injuries
  • Falls – 26.7%
  • Violent acts – 15.1%
  • Sports – 7.6%

Spinal cord injuries could also be a result of risky surgical procedures and medical malpractice. Whatever the reason it may be, you’ve been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, you must contact a skilled personal injury lawyer in Sacramento CA at The Choyce Law Firm for free case consultation. Spinal cord injuries are not only debilitating but also extremely expensive. A lawyer will help you get the financial compensation you deserve to restore you back to your pre-accident condition. Compensation should go above and beyond reimbursement for incurred medical expenses and “pain and suffering”. Because spinal cord injuries can have permanent and life-altering effects, a damages award should also include compensation for ongoing health care. Every case is different and it’s important you talk to an experienced personal injury lawyer in Sacramento CA.
