In some cases, the injuries are so debilitating that it can financially devastate the victim and his or her family. An experienced personal injury lawyer can successfully negotiate a settlement for victims of a spinal cord injury or traumatic brain injury and secure fair and reasonable compensation for their pain and suffering.
SPINAL CORD INJURIES
The primary causes of spinal cord injuries is a blow to the spine or spinal trauma that breaks a disk or vertebra and damages the spinal cord. These types of injuries can be permanent or temporary based on the extent of the damage that is sustained and can result in a loss of autonomic function, muscle function, or sensation. Common spinal cord injury symptoms oftentimes include numbness or pain and temporary or permanent paralysis (paraplegia or quadriplegia).
TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURIES
Traumatic brain injuries disrupt normal function and can be classified as mild, moderate, severe, or extremely severe. While some injury victims may experience a full recovery in a maximum of 3 years, others never recover completely. In fact, many individuals with a traumatic brain injury will suffer with cognitive, emotional, and physical problems. Even if it’s only a mild injury, the person may still have problems dealing with their family members, fellow employees, or other social contacts.
COMPENSATION IS AVAILABLE
With the help of an injury lawyer, you could be entitled to compensation for a number of damages including emotional distress, loss of companionship, loss of income (past and future), medical expenses, and pain and suffering.
