Causes Of Spinal Cord Injuries
Our personal injury lawyers represent clients who have been injured in accidents resulting in spinal cord injuries. When an accident was caused by another person or party’s negligence, the victim may be eligible for significant compensation. Some common causes of these accidents include:
- Gymnastics accidents
- Cheerleading accidents
- Football accidents
- Contact sports accidents
- Diving accidents
- Falls from trees
- Falls from scaffolding
- Dangerous ladder accidents
Representing Clients Of All Ages
Our firm has handled several spinal cord injury cases involving teens and young adults. Since young victims have to deal with their injuries for the rest of their lives, it is necessary to pursue compensation to cover the short- and long-term expenses associated with a spinal cord injury.
One of the biggest factors in determining the value of a personal injury claim for spinal cord injury victims is the severity of the injury. The American Spinal Injury Association (ASIA) classifies spinal cord injuries on a scale of zero to five — zero being total paralysis, five being minimal impairment. The more severe the injury, the more compensation the injury victim may be entitled to receive.
No matter what your age or level of injury, we urge you to contact our law office to discuss your accident case with a personal injury lawyer. We can evaluate your case and help you determine if you have a claim. If we agree to work together on your case, we will pursue maximum compensation to cover the current and long-term expenses associated with your injuries:
- Assistive devices
- Lost wages
- Other accident-related expenses and damages
We also represent people who have suffered spinal cord injuries in car accidents.
