Spinal Cord Injuries
Few types of injuries are as scary or as devastating as spinal cord injuries, especially when those injuries result in full or partial paralysis. If you or someone you love has suffered a spine injury or paralysis, you know how completely these types of tragedies can derail your life and the lives of your loved ones.
Common Types Filing Your
Of Spinal Injuries
Some of the most common types of spine injuries include broken back, bruises, muscle strains, herniated discs and joint sprains. These ailments may require surgery to repair and can lead to lengthy recovery times and chronic pain that may require significant time off work – or prevent you from returning to work at all.
In many cases, spinal cord injuries can cause permanent nerve damage, disability and even paralysis. Motor vehicle accidents are the most common cause of paralysis, along with slips and falls and being struck by or caught between objects. Typically, the higher up on the spinal cord the injury occurs, the more severe the paralysis.
What To Do If You’ve Been Paralyzed from a Workplace Accident
If you’ve suffered an injury to the spine or become paralyzed as a result of a workplace accident, you may be entitled to a monetary settlement to aid in your recovery. In general, the more severe the injury, the greater the medical expenses – and the greater the emotional trauma associated with the event. You may be entitled to additional compensation for lost wages if you are unable to work as a result of your injury.
