Spinal Cord Injury Attorney in Austin
Spinal cord injuries usually occur in a traumatic event such as a car accident, sports-related head injury, bullet or stab wound, electric shock (which results in injured cells within the spinal cord), or severing of the nerves that relay signals throughout the spinal column. The most common types of spinal cord injuries include compression, which is caused by pressure on the spinal cord, and contusions, or bruising of the spinal cord. If you have suffered a spinal injury due to another persons’ negligence, an attorney at Zinda Law Group of Austin may be able to help recover the costs related to your recovery.
Legal Help for Spinal Cord Injury Claims
Spinal cord injuries often have serious, long-lasting consequences. Many victims suffer from paraplegia, a type of paralysis resulting in limited mobility in the legs and lower extremities. Paraplegics may experience difficulty walking, problems with continence, and impaired sexual function. Quadriplegia is more severe and causes a partial or complete loss of mobility below the neck. In addition to the challenges a paraplegic faces, quadriplegics may also have no use of their arms or may not be able to breathe without assistance.
One of the greatest consequences of a spinal cord injury is the costs associated with them. Those who suffer from long-term or life-long disabilities will most likely incur monumental debt in medical bills and other costs associated with care-giving. Additionally, many of these injuries make it impossible for the victim to continue working and these lost wages can also add a financial strain.
