Potential Effects of a Spinal Cord Injury
The effects of a spinal cord injury are usually profound. Individuals who sustain spinal cord trauma often have lifelong physical or neurological impairments. In some cases, extensive medical care such as surgery and physical therapy can help the spinal cord injury victim regain some of their motor abilities, but it is not uncommon for paralysis and other deficits to be permanent.
Information from the Mayo Clinic shows that the symptoms associated with a spinal cord injury can vary and will differ depending on the site of the injury and whether or not the spinal cord injury completely severed the spinal cord (the difference between a complete or incomplete spinal cord injury).
Some of the most common symptoms associated with spinal cord trauma include:
Weakness or paralysis in some or most parts of the body
Loss of bladder or bowel control
Unable to feel heat or cool sensations
Tingling, numbness, and nerve pain
Problems with breathing or swallowing
Changes in sexual ability
This is not a complete list of the potential effects of a spinal cord injury. Additionally, individuals who sustain spinal cord trauma typically become much more susceptible to other types of illnesses, including respiratory diseases, infections, cardiovascular diseases, etc.
Potential Damages Available in Your Case
At The Doan Law Firm, our team works diligently to recover both economic and non-economic damages for spinal cord injury victims in the Lubbock area of Texas.
Economic damages. These damages revolve around calculable expenses a spinal cord injury victim is likely to endure due to the incident and their recovery. Some of the most common economic damages associated with these claims include:
The emergency medical expenses
Ongoing doctor or hospital costs
Physical therapy or rehabilitation
The cost of modifying homes or vehicles
Lost wage replacement
Property damage expenses
Various household out-of-pocket expenses
Non-economic damages. These damages are less calculable by using traditional receipts, invoices, or bills that come in after the incident occurs. Non-economic damages revolve around compensation to pay for a spinal cord injury victim’s physical and emotional pain and suffering and their loss of quality of life resulting from the injury.
There is no set amount of compensation paid to spinal cord injury victims if their claim is successful, but several factors can influence the claim amount. These factors include the severity of the injury, the level of the recovery, whether or not a person is able to obtain employment, the age of the spinal cord injury victim, and more.
