What is a Spinal Cord Injury?

A spinal cord injury (SCI) occurs when the spinal cord is damaged by trauma, disease, or degeneration. The severity of the damage depends on where it occurs along the length of the spine. Damage at the lower end of the spine may cause paralysis below the waist; higher-up damage may affect bladder control or bowel function. The most common causes of SCIs include motor vehicle accidents (MVA), falls from heights, sports injuries, medical complications, and violence. Other less common causes include diving accidents, gunshot wounds, and industrial accidents. There are many different types of MVA, including car crashes, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents, and boating accidents. If someone else’s negligence caused your spinal cord injury, you may be able to file a lawsuit against them. The first step in doing so is hiring a personal injury attorney.

Treatment Options

It is recommended to seek treatment from a neurologist or physiatrist (a doctor specializing in physical medicine and rehabilitation) because they will know what treatments are available and which ones are most effective for your particular injury. They may also be able to refer you to a pain management specialist if you have chronic back pain. If you don’t have access to a neurologist or physiatrist, talk to your primary care physician and ask them to refer you to one.

Compensation for Spinal Cord Injuries

You should know that if you have a spinal cord injury (SCI), it doesn’t matter what type of insurance you carry. If you were injured because someone else was negligent, you may be able to recover damages from them through a lawsuit.  If you’ve suffered a spinal cord injury, you may not know where to turn for legal advice. A lawyer specializing in spinal cord injuries will have experience working with people like you and understand what it takes to recover from a severe injury.

Frequently Asked Question

  • How long will it take to file a lawsuit if I am injured at work?

This varies from state to state, but generally speaking, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim is two years after the date of the incident. If the incident occurred within two years of the date of the accident report, then the statute of limitations is one year.

  • What if Your Injury Happens at Work?

If you suffer from an injury at work, it may be covered by workers’ compensation. This type of insurance usually covers medical expenses, lost wages, and vocational rehabilitation services. It doesn’t cover pain and suffering, however.

  • How much does it cost to hire a spinal cord injury lawyer?

This depends on many factors, including the case's complexity and whether the lawyer works on contingency. The average fee for a spinal cord injury lawyer ranges between $500-$1,000 per hour. Contact Our Spinal Injury Lawyers Today for a Free Case Evaluation!
