WHAT IS A SPINAL CORD INJURY?

A Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) is damage to the vertebra column, spinal cord, or any nerves at the end of the spinal canal. In most cases, spinal cord injury causes permanent changes in body functions such as sensation, motion, and strength.

In addition to physical changes, many individuals who suffer spinal cord injuries feel the effects emotionally and mentally.

Unfortunately, SCIs are relatively common in terms of personal injuries. The National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center reports 17,000 new spinal cord injury cases happen in the U.S. every year. Spinal cord injuries can occur in car accidents, slip and falls, and a number of other situations. If you're living with an SCI in Georgia, The Brown Firm helps injury victims fight for their rights. Our distinguished legal team wants to help you seek compensation for this catastrophic injury. Message our team today, our Atlanta location offers Free Legal Advice to discuss your situation.

CAUSES OF SPINAL CORD INJURIES

Spinal Cord Injuries are often unexpected accidents and traumas that have severe consequences and contribute to a loss of function.

Some of the leading causes of these types of severe back injuries include:

TYPES OF SPINAL CORD INJURIES

Regardless if a spine injury is traumatic or not, the damage affects the nerve fibers that pass through the injured area which can impair your corresponding nerves and muscles below the injury site, this typically results in a loss of function.

These effects factor in determining how severe your back injury is.

There are two types of Spinal Cord Injuries:
  1. A complete SCI is when there is absolutely no function below the level of the injury. That includes a complete lack of sensation and voluntary movement. Both sides of the body are affected equally.

  2. Incomplete: An incomplete SCI occurs when there is still some functioning below the primary level of the injury. For instance, an individual with an incomplete spinal cord injury may be able to move one limb more than another, or they may be able to feel parts of the body that cannot be moved. Both sides of the body are often not affected equally.

HOW DO THESE CASES DIFFER FROM OTHER PERSONAL INJURY CASES?

Doctor Looking at Spinal Cord Injuries Atlanta.

For the majority of Personal Injury Accidents, you recover after a certain time period.

With SCI cases, the care and health issues that accompany the injury are significantly long-term. That is a lifetime of suffering, expenses, and emotional trauma.

Life expectancy rates for people living with SCIs are significantly lower than those without and many need surgery to retain some of their quality of life.

Mortality rates are the highest in the first year after the injury, especially when an SCI results in neurological impairments.

Causes of death surrounding SCIs include pneumonia, septicemia, digestive/urinary diseases, and accidents.

That is not to say that individuals with spinal cord injuries cannot lead fantastic lives. Full-time work, college, and building a family are always options and more and more research every year goes into physical and regenerative therapy to increase the enjoyment of life.

HOW MUCH IS A SPINAL CORD INJURY LAWSUIT WORTH?

No Personal Injury Claim should ever be taken lightly. However, it cannot be understated that Spinal Column Injuries are life-altering and are difficult to process initially.

Overall strength, sensation, and motor function are directly affected.

Due to the catastrophic nature of these accidents and injuries, our Georgia clients are often awarded significant compensation for their losses once we present evidence.

The victims of spinal cord injuries deserve compensation for a vast range of damages. These include the following:

  • Medical expenses: can include injury-related surgical costs, medical bills, and equipment needed such as wheelchairs or any modifications for your home.
  • Emotional Distress and Mental Anguish: Adjusting to a lifestyle with limited motor function can take a mental toll. This is just one area of lifestyle changes. The emotional damage of coping with an SCI is long-term and severe.
  • Quality of Life is vital to injury cases. Many victims end up suffering from permanent disability. Some individuals can never leave the hospital after an accident that results in an SCI. While it may be difficult to place a specific financial amount on these life-altering changes, the Atlanta, GA courts abide by particular calculations to constructing appropriate figures.
  • Loss of Consortium and Loss of Enjoyment
