Spinal Cord Injuries
Contact an attorney today if you or someone you know has suffered a spinal cord injury in an accident or incident of any kind that was related to negligence or intentional wrongdoing. At Pacific Attorney Group, our attorneys assist victims and families throughout the greater Los Angeles area with all types of accident and injury claims involving spinal cord injuries. Of all catastrophic injuries a person may sustain, those to the spinal cord are often the most serious.
Along with brain damage, spinal cord injury may affect the central nervous system and therefore not only normal bodily functions but also one's ability to move and feel. The spinal cord works to transmit information and messages to and from the brain and the rest of the body, and damage at any point along the spine may result in partial or total paralysis from that point downward. Depending on the extent of damage, the victim may suffer from numbness, a total loss of ability to move or control of bodily functions.
Financial Compensation for Spinal Cord Injury Claims
As such, the damages awarded in spinal cord injury claims are often significant. A victim may be able to recover financial compensation for past medical care, as well as any further medical treatment that may be required, along with physical therapy or rehabilitation. Damages may also cover lost earnings and a victim's inability to work or earn the same amount of money that he or she used to earn.
In some cases, a victim may be able to recover compensation for emotional trauma and pain and suffering. Your ability to obtain financial damages for your Los Angeles injury claim may have a significant impact on your ability to recover not just physically but financially and even emotionally. When you work with an injury lawyer at our firm, it will always be our goal to help you rebuild your life.
