Legal Recourse For Spinal Cord Injuries
A serious spinal cord injury doesn't necessarily result in immediate paralysis. After an accident, a small rupture in a disk or broken vertebrae can take weeks or months to develop into a serious problem causing life-long pain and loss of mobility. If you settle your accident injury claim too soon, you give up your right to pursue full monetary damages for future medical treatment you may need years into the future.

Types of Spinal Cord Injuries
There are generally considered to be two main categories of spinal cord injuries: complete and incomplete. The distinction is made based on the severity of the injury and how fully the individual is able to function following the injury. Complete spinal cord injuries result in a total inability to function below the point of injury, whereas those with incomplete spinal cord injuries may retain some amount of sensation or function below the injury.
We may be able to help you seek damages for things such as:
- Home nursing or attendant care
- Home modifications
- Vehicle modifications
- Vocational training
- Psychological counseling
- Medical equipment or medications
- Lost wages or earning potential
