Spinal cord injuries can be devastating for victims

Spinal cord injuries suffered in a car accident can have a devastating impact on victims and their lives. Because of the nature of spinal cord injuries, their impact may extend to family members and loved ones as well as they struggle to help victims following their injury suffered in a car accident or other accident. A victim of a car accident that has suffered a spinal cord injury may be unexpectedly unable to walk, work, care for themselves or perform daily activities previously routine to them.

The costs to treat spinal cord injuries and care for victims can be significant and may include the need for personal care attendants, equipment to help victims adapt to their new life, vocational training, psychological counseling and other medical care and treatment costs as well. In addition, injured victims may be unable to work or work as they did before the injury they suffered so may also be unable to earn a living to support themselves and their families.

As a result, the personal injury legal process provides important protections for victims that may allow them to recover compensation from a negligent driver or other party responsible for their accident and the injuries they have suffered. Victims may be able to recover compensation including medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering damages.

A spinal cord injury can have a catastrophic impact on the life of a victim who may all of the sudden find that their life has been altered forever. Personal injury legal protections provide resources to help victims recover compensation for the physical, financial and emotional injuries the victim has suffered so they can focus on rebuilding their life following the accident.
