Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injury in Greensboro Area
A spinal cord injury is one where the nerves in the spinal cord have been severed or compressed causing pain, weakness and possibly paralysis. The nerves that lead to the rest of the body all travel to some degree along the spinal column. Suffering an injury to the spinal cord can severely impact your mobility, either temporarily or permanently. Even herniated discs are an example of a spinal cord injury. The bulge is compressing on a nerve root or the spinal cord itself and some type of surgery like fusion may be necessary. Since most spinal cord injuries are permanent, you need to make sure that you are at maximum medical improvement before you try and negotiate the case.
Spinal cord and back injuries are often caused by car accidents,
drunk driving accidents,
slip and fall accidents,
medical malpractice, and workplace injuries. This means that you could be in a position to file a claim for
workers compensation, or a
premises liability claim. Because of the severity of this type of injury, most individuals with an actual spinal cord injury will be affected for the rest of their lives. Extensive medical treatment will be needed, likely on a life-long basis. Possible custodial care will be needed if the person becomes a quadriplegic or paraplegic. The ability to sustain normal employment will likely be difficult. In addition, there is the factor of the extreme emotional suffering and trauma that accompanies this type of injury. All of these factors must be taken into consideration by your attorney when negotiating a settlement on your behalf. James Roane is a
