Spinal Cord Injury Complications

Damage to the spinal cord is devastating because it can cause immediate, permanent, and widespread health complications. Only a slight amount of damage to the cervical spine can cause quadriplegia, for example. Insurance companies know that the likelihood of lifetime complications caused by spinal cord injury is high, which is why they are often so tenacious when it comes to refusing to pay any amount of compensation.

The lifetime complications of a spinal cord injury could include:

  • Paraplegia
  • Quadriplegia or tetraplegia
  • Loss of voluntary organ control
  • Chronic pain or numbness

Mental Injuries Caused by Spinal Cord Damage

The mental and emotional traumas caused by spinal cord injuries are often overlooked. Losing the ability to move freely or comfortably is understandably harrowing. Being unable to care for yourself and your loved ones as you once did can have a dramatic impact on your mental wellbeing and your outlook on life.

When we are working on your spinal cord injury case, we will take into account your mental health, as well as your physical health. Your lessened enjoyment of life and the struggles you now endure due to limited mobility are important, and they should be calculated into what the liable party owes you.

Spinal Cord Injuries and Nerve Damage

Can You Get Compensation for Nerve Damage?

Some spinal cord injuries lead to nerve pain or damage around the area that was injured. These are particularly common in incomplete spinal injuries. Nerve damage can be extremely painful and uncomfortable and can impact your life just as much as a spinal cord injury. If you have suffered nerve damage as a result of your accident, we can work to help you recover compensation.

How Do You Prove You Have Nerve Damage?

Similar to spinal cord injuries, nerve damage comes with a set of warning signs that can usually be diagnosed by a doctor:

  • Numbness or tingling in extremities
  • Muscle weakness in arms or legs
  • Dropping objects repeatedly
  • Sharp pain in the hands, arms, legs or feet
  • Buzzing sensation that sometimes feels like an electric shock

What is the Value of Your Spine Injury Lawsuit?

Totaling the value of your spinal cord injury claim is an intricate process. We need to make certain we have uncovered all possible damages and all available insurance claims. Otherwise, we could be leaving a significant portion of your case’s value unclaimed. Where other law firms might rush you into accepting a settlement because they do not want to do the extra math to tally your damages, we will never make you feel pushed to make a decision, especially when your total damages are not even clear yet.

Damages that add to the value of your spinal cord injury claim are:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitative therapy costs
  • Lost wages
  • 24-hour in-home care costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Permanent disability hardships

What Are Some Common Causes of Spinal Injuries?

According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, some of the leading causes of serious spinal cord injuries include:

  1. Car accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents
  2. Trips, slips and falls
  3. Sports injuries including diving accidents, trampoline accidents, football accidents, etc.
  4. Assaults
  5. Birth injuries

No matter the cause of your spinal injury, if you believe your injuries were a result of someone else's negligence, you may have grounds for a personal injury claim.

    “I highly recommend Attorney Molly & the firm to anyone seeking reliable & compassionate assistance during challenging times.”

    I have a friend who sought help from Fellerman & Ciarimboli and said they were very nice and helpful. So when I needed assistance, they were the first ones I thought of, and gave them a call. I was connected to Attorney Molly Clark, who made a significant impact. Her comforting personality created a welcoming environment during our interactions, turning what could have been a somber experience into one filled with positivity. Our upbeat conversations, in contrast to the challenging situation, improved my well-being.

    What truly won me over was Molly's commitment to keeping me informed about the progress of my situation. Whenever I called her with questions, she promptly provided answers, ensuring I had the information I needed when I needed it. Working with Fellerman & Ciarimboli was a positive experience given the circumstances I was facing. I highly recommend Attorney Molly and the firm to anyone seeking reliable and compassionate assistance during challenging times.
