The effects of spinal cord injuries are far reaching

Spinal cord injuries can lead to devastating life changes, such as paralysis. The effects of the injuries can go far beyond the lack of ability to move. In some cases, spinal cord injuries can affect your sex life, your emotions, your behavior, your ability to breathe and your ability to enjoy life. Chronic pain is also possible.

We understand that you might not yet realize just how much the injury to your spinal cord has affected your life. If your injury is still new, the full effects might still be unknown. That can make it difficult for you to know what types and amounts of damages that you should seek compensation for after the accident.

When you opt to seek compensation for a spinal cord injury, you will have to include your claims for damages. This can be the financial aspects you have already incurred, as well as those that you will incur for the remainder of your life. Medical bills, care costs and assistance expenses are all some of the financial hits you might take.

Some of the conditions that you might suffer from because of the spinal cord injury that might require medical care include bed stores, pressure ulcers, loss of muscle mass and infections. More serious conditions, such as respiratory issues or cardiovascular problems are also possible.

You might not be able to work because of the spinal cord injury. That is another financial blow, and it is another reason for you to seek compensation for the injury. The ultimate goal is to lessen the financial blow that you have to cope with.
