Severe Consequences of Spinal Injuries
All spinal cord injuries need to be taken seriously and should be evaluated immediately by a medical professional. A severe spinal injury can cause immediate paralysis and lifelong consequences. But the same is true if a moderate injury is ignored and gradually worsened due to a lack of medical care and rest.
Three distinct forms of paralysis caused by spinal injury are:
- Paraplegia: Paralysis of legs and lower body, possibly including the bowels. Paraplegia is often caused by damage to the spine below the ribcage or near the hips.
- Triplegia: Paralysis of the lower body and one arm. Triplegia is caused by a complex spinal cord injury that affects multiple parts of the spine.
- Quadriplegia or tetraplegia: Paralysis of the entire body, possibly including the face. Quadriplegia is often caused by damage to the upper spine near or along the neck.
Intense Care for Severe Spine Injuries
Treating a spinal cord injury is difficult but not impossible. With advanced medical treatments, you might be able to regain some lost mobility or reduce the chronic pain that often accompanies spinal cord damage. At the least, if paralysis cannot be reversed, then you can probably live more comfortably with the right medical care.
Spinal cord injury patients often require:
- Multiple back and spine surgeries
- Years of rehabilitative therapy
- Prescription medications
- Psychotherapy to help with major changes
Our goal is to get you a maximized compensation amount that pays for all your medical treatments, no matter how extensive or experimental those may be. Insurance companies responding to your claim will try to push back because they know that the total cost of compensation owed to you could be steep. Get us on your side from the start, so you have the tools and representation required to meet their challenge head-on.
Lost Income & Wages Count, Too
Of course, the cost of your medical care is not the only concern in a spine injury case. The cost of the wages you won’t earn must also be calculated. Holding gainful employment might be impossible due to your spinal cord injury. If this is the case, then you will need some form of supplemental income for the rest of your life, which can be paid through your settlement or award. When income damages are factored into a spinal cord injury claim, it is not unusual for the case to exceed $1 or 2 million in value.
