by Texas Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer, Tim O’Hare
Spinal cord injuries are some of the most debilitating injuries a person can suffer. Injuries to the spine can occur for a number of reasons, including a car accident, workplace injury, slip and fall, medical malpractice, truck accident or acts of violence.
Any time a spine injury occurs, the results can be devastating, both physically, emotionally and financially. Severe pain, permanent disability, financial hardship and costly medical bills are unfortunately common for anyone who experiences an injury to the spinal cord.
The spinal cord is part of the central nervous system and acts as an extension of the brain to the rest of the body. It is a delicate bundle of cells and nerves, protected by the spinal column. In some cases, an injury causing damage to the spinal column may also cause damage to the spinal cord, potentially altering the victim’s functional control over parts of his or her body. In most cases, a severed spinal cord can not be treated or repaired, leaving the victim to adjust to a “new normal.”
Not all spinal cord injuries give rise to a personal injury claim, but individuals who suffer spine injuries as the result of another person’s (or corporation’s) negligence or a defective product may be entitled to compensation. In a spinal cord injury lawsuit that is based on negligence, the victim and his or her attorney must prove that the defendant’s negligent act lead to the victim’s injury. The same is true in cases where a defective product may be to blame; the injured party must prove that a defective or broken product resulted in serious injury to the victim.
Filing a personal injury claim because of a spinal cord injury can be a complicated process, one that is best left in the hands of an experienced personal injury lawyer, who has handled spinal cord injuries.
