Types of Spinal Cord Injuries
- A complete spinal cord injury – means there is no functioning below the level of injury nor any sensation or voluntary movement. Both sides of the body are equally affected.
- An incomplete spinal cord injury – means there is some functioning below the level of injury. A person with this type of injury may be able to move one limb more than another, may have one side to the body functioning more than the other, and may be able to feel parts of the body that cannot be moved. Generally speaking the higher in the spinal column the injury occurs, the worse the outcome of the injury.
Your Legal Rights, Your Financial Future
If you are eligible to file a spinal cord injury lawsuit, you should know that you and your loved ones may be entitled to considerable financial awards for injuries suffered, medical bills, lost wages, property damage, future lost wages, travel expenses for care, non-covered health insurance expenses, life-long medical care, support services for family, psychiatric care, funeral expenses, lost wages, caregivers and even psychological or emotional awards. This will all be clearer and more detailed after you speak to a personal injury lawyer about the specifics of your injury and your potential case.
Warning – Filing Timeline
If you or a loved one has been injured and it is someone else’s fault, do not sign anything from an insurance company or an attorney that does not represent you. Get an attorney on your side to fight for your rights. By signing anything you don’t understand 100% you risk reducing the amount of financial justice you and your family may be legally entitled to.
There is a certain timeline to file a spinal injury lawsuit. Missing the timeline makes you ineligible to file the lawsuit, even if you are the victim. However, if you have a spinal injury attorney, then he can advise you on the right time to file your lawsuit.
All spinal cord injuries cases are serious and are difficult to prove in a court of law and therefore it is important to have experienced and savvy legal representation that can help you gather and sort through the evidence of your case.
