The spinal cord is a strand of nerve tissue that runs down the center of your back. Nerve tissue is very delicate, and that’s why your spinal cord is protected by the spinal column, a long series of connected bones called vertebrae that’s commonly referred to as the backbone.
The nerve tissue in your spinal cord sends messages from your brain to your entire body, and it also sends messages back to your brain. Every time you move a muscle or feel a sensation somewhere in your body, it’s the result of a message that was sent through your spinal cord either to or from your brain.
A spinal cord injury involves damage to the spinal cord that causes a permanent change in strength, physical sensation, and bodily function below the site of the injury. This may be due to a blow or a penetrating injury to the spine that severs or damages the spinal cord. When a vertebra becomes crushed, dislocated, or inflamed, it can also cause a spinal cord injury.
Symptoms of a spinal cord injury include:
- Muscle spasms
- Loss of bowel control
- Difficulty breathing
- Loss of balance
- Reduced muscle tone
- Reduced motor control
- Loss of physical sensation
- Loss of sexual function
The most frequent causes of spinal cord injuries are motor vehicle collisions and falls. Accidents that may cause spinal cord damage include:
- Car crashes
- Motorcycle crashes
- Truck collisions
- Construction accidents
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Bicycle crashes
- Sports injuries
- Falls from height
- Pedestrians struck by motor vehicles
Spinal cord injuries create substantial expenses for accident victims. The Husband & Wife Law Team will investigate the accident and file a claim against anyone whose negligent actions were responsible for your injuries. For example, if a trucking company hired an employee with an unsafe driving record or if they failed to adequately service and inspect their vehicles, the business may share liability for the accident.
Landlords, employees, and property managers have a duty of care to eliminate hazards they should have known about. If you were injured in a fall caused by a loose handrail or an unmarked slippery surface, there are several people who may be held responsible. The Ahwatukee injury lawyers at The Husband & Wife Law Team may seek compensation against any of the following parties in a spinal cord injury claim:
- Business owners
- Property managers
- Employees and supervisors
- Manufacturers of defective products
A spinal cord injury causes tremendous hardship for the victim and their family. Patients with spinal cord injuries require constant care. In many cases, the victim’s spouse, parent, or other family member will have to devote a considerable portion of time to providing assistance.
A spinal cord injury generates astronomical medical bills and expenses. When The Husband & Wife Law Team files a claim for spinal cord injuries, it includes the following types of damages:
- Medical treatment
- Reduced quality of life
- Lost wages
- Medical devices
- Pain and suffering
- Reduced earning capacity
- Occupational therapy
- In-home nursing care
