Spinal cord injuries fall under the legal definition of the term ‘catastrophic injury.’ Though rare, a spinal cord injury is a chronic and often permanent condition that can dramatically affect one’s quality of life and well-being. Spinal cord injury symptoms frequently include changes in strength, sensation, and other body functions below the site of the injury.
If you have recently experienced a spinal cord injury, it might seem like every aspect of your life has been dramatically altered for the worse. Beyond the physical effects that one must endure following a spinal cord injury, the experience can impact individuals mentally, emotionally, and socially. Those effects often extend beyond the injury victim, having a devastating impact on family members and friends alike.
Citing research studies ongoing throughout the world, the Mayo Clinic reports that many scientists are optimistic that medical advances will someday make the repair of spinal cord injuries possible, causing spinal cord injury recovery to become routine. Today, spinal cord injury treatments and rehabilitation allow many people to lead productive, independent lives. Such medical care, however, can be exorbitantly expensive. Individuals who sustained spinal cord injuries as the result of someone else’s negligence, carelessness, or maliciousness, have the right to hold that person (or entity) responsible via a civil lawsuit.
