Spinal Cord Injury
Today, more than 11,000 people get these life-altering injuries every year, from bicycle accidents, auto accidents, and even truck accidents. However, acts of violence, sports accidents and even fall contribute a lot to these accidents. The initial recovery for any spinal cord injury is usually put in, around a few months, to several years. At times, the injury that a victim suffers is usually permanent.
Attorneys at Harrison Barnes, A Professional Law Corporation have been able to recover millions, in settlement for spinal injury victims and their families. We have represented children, and adults who have suffered from spinal cord injuries, in falls, swimming accidents, and even diving mishaps. Our lawyers in Los Angeles understand the life changes, that occur after a spinal cord trauma and is the reason they pursue cases vigorously.
If an accident that leads to spinal trauma can be attributed to someone’s negligent, reckless, or careless action, the victim is entitled to get damages for the injury. In cases, where permanent injury is gotten, the amount of compensation given may be substantial. Although monetary compensation is given, and cannot bring back good health, the money can go a long way towards ensuring that a person lives life in the most comfortable manner, by getting the best medical care possible.
Treatment of spinal cord trauma for life can at times cost millions of dollars. This is because a victim will, usually need care round the clock. Thus, expenses brought about by being in a wheel chair, constant care, lost earnings, surgeries, and even losing one’s insurance- since a person cannot go back to work, can be quite devastating emotionally, and financially. Statistics from Alabama University’s National Spinal Injury Statistical Center show that only 25% of spinal injury victims are usually covered by private insurance when they get the accident. So, getting full monetary compensation, and ensuring that the person responsible is brought to book, is important. Damages that are given cover pain and suffering of the victim, loss of earning capacity, rehabilitation, hospitalization, and other costs associated with the injury.
