A spinal cord injury is one of the most devastating types of injuries a person can suffer. Spinal cord injuries can have dire consequences in the life of an individual. An injury inflicted on the spinal cord can damage the body’s ability to carry motor signal to the brain and can therefore cause the loss of voluntary and involuntary bodily functions. In severe cases, a person who has suffered spinal cord injury can face permanent damage such as paralysis and/or life-threatening injuries.

Often times catastrophic spinal cord injury happens as a result of a preventable accident. Unfortunately, spinal cord injuries can have irreversible adverse effects.

A spinal cord injury can alter your life forever. Much like brain injuries, spinal cord injuries require extensive medical care and services that are often very costly. Our San Diego spine injury lawyers have represented victims of spinal cord injury who have struggled with expenses such as:
- Auto Accidents
- Surgeon bills
- Hospital bills
- Physical therapy costs
- Mobility aides (wheelchairs, crutches, etc.)
- Live-in nurse expenses and nursing bills
- Prescription medications
- Home modification costs
- Costly motor vehicles for mobility
- Purchase of lifts to facilitate movement
Despite the fact that medicine is advancing rapidly, there is still no guaranteed treatment or way to predict who can recover from the damaging effects of spinal cord injury. Hospital bills and rehabilitation costs are often very costly, and may leave a victim’s family with little to no options. In addition to the expenses that result from spinal cord injury, a victim of this type of injury may also face permanent hindering life changes.
Spinal cord injury may permanently hinder a person’s ability to work or it may prevent a person to work in the same degree as they once did. Furthermore, specialized long-term care is often required and many insurance companies only cover a small fraction of the total costs. This is why it is imperative that you seek the legal counsel of a skilled San Diego spinal cord injury attorney. If you have been suffered from spinal cord injury as a result of another’s negligence, we will fight to get you the compensation you deserve.
