Damage to the spinal cord can result in catastrophic injuries, and some may even be fatal. Treatment for a spinal cord injury can be costly, and the injury can likely result in a lowered quality of life and lost wages. It is important to work with a skilled personal injury attorney to ensure you receive just compensation for your losses.
Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries
There are several circumstances under which you may suffer a spinal cord injury. The most common circumstance is a motor vehicle accident involving a car, truck, or motorcycle. In catastrophic motor vehicle accidents, head, neck, back, and spinal cord injuries are common and can be life-threatening. Rocky Walton can help successfully bring your case against the driver at fault, a car manufacturer, or any other responsible party.
Some occupations such as construction work are inherently high-risk, increasing the chances of a catastrophic injury. Premises liability cases such as a slip and fall accident may also result in a spinal cord injury. These accidents commonly occur due to water leaks, and the building owner may be held liable for any damages.
Other circumstances that may result in a catastrophic spinal cord injury include medical malpractice, a defective drug, sports injuries, and acts of violence.
