A spinal cord injury (SCI) is defined as any damage to the nerve roots that carry signals to and from the brain. It occurs most frequently as a result of car accidents and other traffic collisions, but the trauma to the spinal cord can also be caused by workplace accidents, sports-related incidents, and as a result of a slip and fall. SCIs are severe and usually have a considerable negative impact on a victim’s quality of life and future earnings. This is made worse by the need for expensive medical resources and rehabilitative care, particularly when the SCI results in paralysis.
The catastrophic nature of a spinal cord injury and its associated care and recovery makes it that much more important for you to receive maximum insurance compensation. Obtaining proper legal representation following an SCI or other head, neck, or back injury will support you in receiving fair compensation for damages, pain and suffering, lost wages, and future earnings. An experienced personal injury lawyer is required to help you through the complexities of the claims process and to help you to receive the care and support that you deserve.
