Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries are among the most traumatic and life changing of all injuries. The Mayo clinic defines a spinal cord injury as "damage to the vertebrae, ligaments or disks of the spinal column or to the spinal cord itself." Such injury can result from sudden, traumatic blows to the spine, fractured vertebrae, gunshot wounds, knife wounds, or fluid accumulation in the spinal cord. The most common causes of spinal cord injuries result from car accidents, diseases, sport injuries, injuries related to violent crimes, and falls.

A severe spinal injury can paralyze a person, rendering them unable to walk, dress, talk and perform independently. Injuries that are less severe are also painful and can cause extreme back pain, and limited mobility. According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center:

  • For every 1 million people, 40 experience spinal cord injuries a year
  • On average, 12,000 people sustain new spinal cord injuries
  • Costs incurred the first year of treatment average $334,000 to more over $1 million

In the case of a spinal cord injury, the victim may be entitled to thousands of dollars in remedies. If you or someone you love is victim of a spinal cord injury inflicted by negligent or intentional misconduct, contact the Genesis Law Group to begin your claim. Although your accident has caused you irreversible damages, we will work to ensure that you receive compensation for your pain, suffering, medical expenses as well as other expenses.
