Fighting For Spinal Cord Injury Victims in Antelope Valley

Of all the different types of harm that one might suffer in a serious accident, injuries to the spinal cord are among the most serious of injuries. A spinal cord injury has the potential to affect nearly every part of a person's body, given the crucial role that the spinal cord plays in human health.

The spinal cord is what makes it possible for the brain to monitor, regulate and control activity and functions throughout the rest of the body. This organ extends the central nervous system out from the brain, after which it branches out into the peripheral nervous system, which carries messages and impulses between the brain and the various organs of the body.

Leading Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries

There are many ways a person may suffer a spinal cord injury, but some of the most common causes include:

  • Car accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Falls
  • Sports injuries

Understanding Spinal Cord Injury Claims

Injuries to the spinal cord can have devastating consequences for an accident victim. In the worst cases, the individual will be left with a condition such as paraplegia or quadriplegia which results in partial or total paralysis throughout large sections of the body. Even relatively minor spinal cord injuries such as whiplash can cause severe restriction in the range of motion, chronic pain and headaches.

Compensation for Spinal Cord Injury Victims

The costs of treating such an injury can be staggering, both for emergency care and for ongoing medical treatment. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a spinal cord injury victim can expect to pay between $15,000 and $30,000 per year and up to $3 million in medical expenses alone. These figures do not take into account the fact that the person may have been left partially or totally disabled and incapable of earning an income to be financially independent.
