The Serious Effects of a Spinal Cord Injury
Due to its central role in running the body, any damage to the spinal cord can significantly impair a person’s life. Spinal cord injuries can result in:
- Personality changes
- Immense pain
- Loss of muscle control
- Cognitive difficulties
- Loss of sexual function
- Loss of bladder and bowel control
Individuals affected by spinal cord injuries may find it difficult or impossible to return to work. In severe cases, individuals with spine injuries may need around-the-clock medical care and physical assistance. The stress, emotional turmoil and financial strain stemming from the spinal cord injury can also take an immense toll on the physical and mental health of the victim’s family members. Spinal cord injuries can also lead to the death of a loved one.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates the yearly cost of a spinal cord injury to be close to $30,000. Over a lifetime, victims may pay up to $3 million in medical expenses, therapy and lost wages.
I Have Suffered a Spinal Cord Injury. What Can I Do?
If you believe that the actions or inactions of another person caused your spinal cord injuries, you may have legal options to hold the reckless party that caused the auto accident or truck accident responsible for your injuries. Legal recourse is also possible in the event of catastrophic accidents involving construction, defective products and injuries suffered on dangerous property.
Victims of catastrophic injuries, which include spinal cord injuries, may be able to obtain several types of compensation. For those suffering from a spinal cord injury, these cases often focus on the long-term effects as well as the individual’s ability to continue working and lead an independent life.
