When a person suffers a spinal cord injury, the concern is generally centered around how much life will change. As time passes, it’s common to shift attention from the injury to the emotional impact. Having supportive loved ones and medical professionals by your side can make a world of difference.
At Triumph Law, we make the effort to get to know each client and the effects an accident has had on their lives. If you’re in need of a personal injury lawyer, we’re to help. Our firm understands the complex nature of catastrophic injury claims, and we’ll give your case the personalized attention it needs.
Spinal Cord Injuries Are Frequently Caused by Negligence
Consumers frequently believe that the only options available are those the insurance adjuster provides. Even while the insurance companies might provide a settlement, it usually isn’t enough to pay for the costs associated with a catastrophic injury.
Working with an attorney can provide you with the tools you need to seek justice from a negligent party that caused your injuries.
Injuries to the spinal cord can occur in a wide variety of accidents. Negligence can be a factor in circumstances like these:
- Car collisions
- Slips and Falls
- Falls from height
- Bicycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Sports injuries
- Pedestrian accidents
- Gunshot wounds, assault
Paralysis is a common outcome of spinal cord injuries, and survivors may face a lifetime of medical care and rehabilitation costs. When another party’s negligence causes you to become injured, you have the legal right to pursue justice and compensation. A spinal cord injury attorney can work to identify all sources of liability to maximize the compensation you receive.
Spinal Cord Damage Symptoms and Signs
Many accident victims are immediately aware that they have sustained a spinal cord injury. At the scene of the accident, they experience a loss of feeling and sensation. However, some spinal cord injuries are less apparent and may take days to show detectable symptoms.
Some indicators of spinal cord damage include:
- Loss of movement in areas of the body
- Lack of ability to feel heat or cold
- Limb weakness
- Stinging sensations or pain
- Bowel or bladder control issues
- Breathing difficulty
It is crucial to seek medical attention right away if you notice any of these symptoms in the days after your injury. Time is critical because patients now have a better chance of making a full or partial recovery because of advancements in therapy options.
To best preserve your right to claim, it’s best to seek medical attention immediately to treat and document your injuries.
Financial Impact of Spinal Cord Damage Across a Person’s Lifetime
Injuries to the spinal cord are notoriously devastating. Sufferers of spinal cord injuries (SCIs) face a lifetime of medical expenses. The expenses associated with their impairment, such as adapted housing and transportation, will also need to be taken into account.
The National Spinal Cord Injury Statistics Center estimates that the total cost of treatment for a person with a spinal cord injury over the course of their lifetime is close to $5 million. How much will be spent on medical care depends on the patient’s age and the severity of their injury.
We will demand payment from the insurance companies and will not back down if they make a meager offer. If you’ve suffered a spinal cord injury in California, our legal team is prepared to fight for your right to recover full financial compensation from the negligent party.

Recoverable Damages in a Spinal Cord Injury Case
The lifelong expenditures associated with a spinal cord injury could surpass $1 million, even at the mildest degree of disability. Disablement-related pay loss and diminished potential for future earnings can add another million dollars or more to the equation.
A personal injury lawyer who has experience with spinal cord injury claims will understand these expenses and can perform a thorough calculation of the damages in your case to ensure that you don’t accept an undervalued settlement offer.
Your attorney may work to recover the following damages on your behalf:
- All medical costs associated with the accident
- Expenses related to rehabilitation
- The price of adapting one’s home and transportation to the needs of a person with restricted or no mobility
- The cost of home health aide’s services
- Any specialized medical equipment needed
- Lost earning potential due to injuries sustained in an accident
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Pain and suffering damages, which can make up a sizable portion of a person’s damages award when they have suffered a catastrophic accident that has drastically reduced their quality of life.
You can imagine how quickly the costs associated with a spinal cord injury claim can grow. You are probably dealing with a significant claim or litigation. An attorney who has experience with complex catastrophic injury cases will know the best way to proceed and will fight to ensure you collect.
