Your spinal cord, the bundle of nerves running down from your brain down to the tips of your toes is one of, if not the single most important part of your body. It transmits your brain's signals to every organ and extremity, and any disruption can have catastrophic consequences. If you suffered a serious spinal cord injury caused by someone else's actions, it's in your best interest to reach out to a experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
If you have suffered a spinal cord injury, you may be facing a lifetime of chronic pain or partial or full paralysis. Treatment for such injuries can be incredibly costly and is frequently only partially successful. Contact the Jacksonville personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Jason K.S. Porter, P.A. for help pursuing a settlement for your injury. If another person's negligence can be demonstrated as the cause of your accident, you may be entitled to recover compensation for every aspect of your injury, from your lost income to your medical bills and pain and suffering.
Leading Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries
According to the Mayo Clinic, car accidents and motorcycle accidents account for more than 90% of all new spinal cord injuries every year, making them the leading cause. Drivers and passengers may suffer whiplash even in relatively minor fender-benders and rear-end collisions, and the symptoms often do not manifest for hours or days after the accident. Victims of catastrophic car crashes are likely to suffer severe spinal cord injuries, as well as motorcycle riders who are struck by a car or ejected from the bike. Falling is another major source of this type of injury, such as in slip and fall pedestrian accidents or certain construction accidents.
Quadriplegia and Paraplegia Injury Claims
A spinal cord injury victim may suffer paraplegia or quadriplegia in serious cases, while it is common to experience severe chronic pain and restricted range of motion. You may discover that your injury seriously limits your choice of activities, as you might have to take special precaution to avoid aggravating the injury. Treatment options range from invasive surgery to chiropractic adjustments and physical therapy. If the accident was not your fault, you deserve to be compensated for your expenses in pursuing any type of treatment which will restore your health and alleviate the pain, as well as for your reduced quality of life.
