Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries

Numerous types of accidents and events can lead to a spinal cord injury. Some of the most common include:

Spinal cord injuries can vary in severity. In cases when only a small amount of tissue is damaged, full recovery is possible. However, in cases where there is severe and widespread tissue damage, there is a strong chance of developing serious, permanent injuries, such as paraplegia or quadriplegia.

Damage awards for spinal cord injuries can be significant, particularly in the more severe cases. There are several different categories of damages that may be available, including:

  • Medical Costs: Immediate medical expenses, as well as costs for rehabilitation and ongoing treatment.
  • Lost Wages: In many cases, the injured party is no longer able to work and should be compensated for current and future lost income.
  • Pain and Suffering: The physical pain and discomfort of a spinal cord injury can go on for a lifetime.
  • Emotional Trauma: Severe, life-changing injuries can cause depression and other negative emotions as victims struggle to adjust to their new circumstances.
  • Loss of Enjoyment: Spinal cord injuries can severely limit the physical activities victims are able to participate in.
