Whether due to a car accident, slip and fall, or a workplace mishap, spinal cord injuries are among the most serious and life-altering injuries that can occur to a person and his or her family. Not only do spinal cord injuries result in extreme amounts of pain, suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life, but they are likely to result in extensive medical treatments and accompanying medical bills.
Between the emotional stress, physical pain, and financial difficulties, a spinal cord injury can be devastating for the victim and his or her family. If the injury occurred due to the negligence of another, however, there may be assistance for individuals who find themselves in this situation.
The spinal cord can be injured in many ways, and the effects of the injury on a person’s ability to move and engage in certain activities vary greatly from one injury to the next. Some common types of spinal cord injuries include, but are not limited to:
Unfortunately, the effects of any type of spinal cord injury are likely to be debilitating, at least to some degree. Many individuals find themselves severely limited in daily activities, unable to work on a permanent basis, and in need of around-the-clock medical care. Spinal cord injuries may necessitate expensive medical treatments and equipment simply for an individual to be able to function at least somewhat independently on a daily basis.
Given the high expenses and toll that a spinal cord injury is likely to take, if your injury has come about due to the careless or negligent behavior of another, compensation may be available to you. Florida drivers, property owners, and business owners all are likely to have insurance policies that cover situations just like these. If your injury was caused by another’s negligence, then the at-fault party’s insurance company is liable to compensate you for injuries.
Depending on the circumstances, a spinal cord injury can result in permanent disability and a complete inability to work, which can lead to difficulty paying for much-needed medical treatment and supporting one’s family. In cases where the injury victim traditionally has acted as the primary breadwinner for the family, the consequences of a serious injury can be devastating.
