Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord damage that leads to function loss is called a spinal cord injury (SCI). Loss of mobility or feeling and other physiological complications, such as paralysis or quadriplegia, can accompany an SCI.

Traumatic impact from a motor vehicle crash is one of the leading causes of an SCI. Other common causes of spinal cord injuries include construction accidents, sporting accidents, fall accidents, and other traumatic accidents. The spinal cord doesn’t have to be severed for loss of mobility or other functions to occur. Many people with an SCI have a spinal cord that is intact but there has been damage to the spine or the vertebrae around it.

People suffering from an SCI will often have to contend with lifelong physical and financial losses. Medical expenses, a lesser quality of life, and other negative consequences may burden the patient and his or her family. Our San Diego SCI lawyers are committed to helping our spinal cord injury clients receive the maximum recovery from the negligent entity or individual.

Spinal Cord Injuries A person with a spinal cord injury may experience impaired movement, chronic pain, and ongoing weaknesses in the arms, legs, or hands. An SCI client usually will have costly bills for medical care; rehabilitative care costs, and home modifications to allow for greater accessibility, transportation expenses, such as specially outfitted vans, wheelchairs, and home access ramps, as well as other quality of life challenges. If you or someone you love is suffering from a spinal cord injury caused by the carelessness, negligence, or wrongful actions of another party, you may be able to receive compensation for your losses.
