Any sudden blow to your back or spine can cause damage to your spinal cord, spinal column, discs, ligaments, and/or vertebrae – resulting in serious and sometimes fatal injuries. Known as being one of the most severe types of car accident injuries you can sustain in a crash, a cervical spinal cord injury can cause paralysis, while a high cervical spinal cord injury is often fatal.
Back injuries that cause spinal cord damage are often severe and may require long-term care. Some common symptoms of a spinal cord injury include:
- Complete paralysis
- Some loss of motor or sensory function around the injury
- Loss of mobility
- Inability to feel heat, cold and touch
- Spasms/excessive reflex activities
- Stinging pain due to nerve damage
- Problems breathing or coughing
- Severe back pain
Whether you sustained a herniated disc, stress fracture, a strain or a sprain, a spinal cord injury or any serious back injury can have a huge impact on your life. You might not be able to go back to work again and may require long-term care. Treatment for a severe back injury or spinal cord damage may include prescription medications, stabilization, surgery, physical therapy and other forms of rehabilitation.
If you or a loved one sustained a spinal cord injury in a crash, Tampa car accident lawyer Armando Edmiston can meet with you when and where it’s convenient for you, hear you explain what happened, discuss your legal options, answer your questions, and help you figure out the best way to proceed with your claim.
How much is my spinal cord injury worth?
There is no fixed amount of compensation for spinal cord damage because your payout will be determined by the overall impact the injury has had on your life. Your claim could be worth hundreds, thousands, or maybe even millions. It really all depends.
In general, you may be entitled to compensation for:
- All your medical expenses related to the injury and for the future
- Lost wages due to being absent from work
- Loss of earning capacity if you can no longer work
- Replacement services for help with things like housekeeping and childcare
- Pain and suffering/punitive damages
If you’re the loved one of someone who suffered a fatal spinal cord injury in a crash, you may also be able to pursue damages, such as funeral expenses and loss of companionship through a wrongful death claim.
