Coping With Catastrophic Injuries
While any back injury can have serious consequences, an injury in which the spinal cord has actually been cut is one of the most catastrophic injuries you can sustain. There is unfortunately no way current medical science can repair a spinal cord that has been completely severed.
When the spinal cord is cut anywhere along the spinal column, the injured person suffers permanent paralysis, losing all sensation and bodily function below that level.
Depending on where the injury takes place, this can cause paraplegia or quadriplegia. People with these conditions may not ever be able to return to their previous jobs and may need permanent, intensive medical and personal care.
Carefully Documenting Your Present And Future Damages
If you are suffering from paralysis due to injuries you received in an accident caused by someone else's negligence, your lawyer will need to not only prove who caused your accident but also demonstrate the impact your injuries will have for the rest of your life. It could require a life care plan that sets out the amount of money it will take to support you and pay for your living expenses and medical expenses, including special equipment, for the rest of your life.
Our attorneys work with credible expert professionals to document damages such as pain and suffering, reduced quality of life, and the expenses associated with life care and medical treatment. Call 518-631-4139 or 888-324-7261 to discuss your injuries with an experienced personal injury trial lawyer.
