Colorado Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers
A spinal cord injury (SCI) is one of the most complex health conditions to understand especially because the spinal cord is such a significant part of the Central Nervous System. This primary organ in our bodies is responsible for the transmission of signals from the brain to the body, motor reflexes (moving), and sensory information. Given the critical role that the spinal cord plays in our lives, when damage occurs to it, the possibility of several essential parts of the body losing function is quite high.
The spinal cord injury lawyers at Zinda Law Group of Colorado understand the enormity that the effects of spinal cord injuries have on both victims and their family and friends. When paralysis is involved, our lawyers understand how this condition can have devastating emotional, physical, economic effects for a very long time.
The two types of paralysis ensuing from spinal cord injuries are paraplegia and quadriplegia. When an individual has paralysis in all the four limbs, it is considered quadriplegia. Someone with paraplegia has paralysis in their lower body and legs but still has feeling and movement in their hands and arms. No two people will respond to spinal cord injuries in the same way, and the symptoms can range in severity from mild to full paralysis. But the ultimate effects are always life changing.
Violent injuries cause spinal cord trauma.
Injuries sustained in a truck accident, car accident, or motorcycle accident are among the most common causes of spine damage. When broken pieces of bones tear into the spine, disrupting nerve signals or resulting in traumatic pain, paralysis can occur.
Violent acts, such as knife wounds and traumatic injuries caused by falls or diving accidents can also cause spinal cord injuries. A spinal cord injury can happen in a number of ways. However, if your injury was the result of someone else's negligence, an attorney at Zinda Law Group of Colorado can help defend your rights and get the justice you deserve.
The financial cost for treating spinal cord injuries is high.
Measuring the lifetime cost of spinal cord injuries is quite difficult since the disabilities are in most cases extensive and permanent. The National Spinal Cord Injuries Statistical Center provides that medical cost for spinal cord injuries for the first year alone range from $340,787 to $1,044,197. This study, unfortunately, only represents direct medical costs. Other than medical expenses, these victims often need a lot of attention and care.
Also, most of them cannot work to earn a living and have diminished life quality. As the victim of a spinal cord accident, you shouldn't be left with these astronomical medical expenses. You could be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, and more. Our spinal cord injury lawyers can help you understand what you are eligible for and pursue compensation on your behalf so you can focus on what is most important - your recovery.
