Spinal cord injuries can cause paralysis or paraplegia resulting from an accident or the negligence of another person. A spinal cord injury can be devastating for the victim and the victim’s family, and can may cause drastic changes to quality of life. If the injury severs the spinal cord, it will result in paralysis below the point of injury. Spinal cord damage can also cause loss of bladder or bowel control, numbness, tingling, poor coordination, and pain or weakness. If you’ve been injured, contact Mesa spinal cord injury lawyer Nathaniel B. Preston, because you may be entitled to compensation.
Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injury and Paralysis
Spinal cord injuries can be caused by car accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, gunshot and knife wounds, sports-related injuries, construction accidents, medical negligence, or falls. You have a legal right to make a personal injury claim to be compensated for your injuries, if you have suffered a spinal injury or paralysis resulting from someone else’s negligent or intentional act, or by a dangerous or defective product,
Many state legislatures over the past decade have imposed limits or caps on the amount of money you can recover in these types of cases. Arizona has no limits or caps on recoverable damages for medical expenses, permanent disability, loss of current and future wages, loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, and mental anguish.
The Importance of Obtaining Qualified Legal Counsel
Extreme medical costs usually accompany spinal cord injuries for surgeries, physical therapy, physical rehabilitation, and prescription medications. Spinal cord injury victims can suffer permanent paralysis, which will most likely result in lost income and employment. Mental and emotional trauma often accompanies spinal cord injuries because of the dramatic change to quality of life, especially for those who become paralyzed.
