The spinal cord is among the most vital systems of the body, as it enables the brain and the central nervous system to monitor and control the various limbs and organs of the body. A spinal cord injury threatens the victim with the possibility of partial or total paralysis, with conditions such as paraplegia and quadriplegia that may result in enormous medical bills and inability to earn an income . While some injuries to the spinal cord are simply unavoidable, others are the result of negligence, and in such a case the victim has a right to sue for damages in a personal injury lawsuit.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, motor vehicle collisions such as car accidents, motorcycle accidents and truck accidents account for nearly half of all spinal cord injuries across the nation. Approximately a quarter of these injuries are the result of slip and fall accidents, while physical violence and sports injuries account for roughly one third. Whatever situation led to your injury, if it was caused by another person’s carelessness or recklessness, you have a right to demand financial compensation.
