Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries can happen at any time and for any number of reasons. Something as simple as slipping down a stairway and landing on the wrong side of your spine can cause nerve damage. In many cases, car or truck accidents and any kind of collision that twists or bends the spine can lead to long-term or permanent injuries.

People suffering from spinal cord injuries may experience:

  • Permanent paralysis
  • Loss of feeling in hands or legs
  • Tingly feeling with small amounts of sensation below the injury site

These injuries are considered medical emergencies, and treatment by a medical professional is always recommended. Proper treatment may prevent further damage. Additionally, timely care from a medical professional can help you determine how much you are eligible to recover in an injury claim.

Medical Expenses and Other Costs of an SCI

The financial burden of a spinal cord injury can affect a victim for years to come. Survivors are often overwhelmed by the costs of medical care alone in the days and weeks following an accident. As months stretch into years, long-term care and other costs may also arise. Even with insurance coverage, a relatively minor injury can lead to significant fees.

These expenses include:

  • Surgery
  • Medication
  • Therapy
  • Caregiver fees

Medical attention and treatments can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, and sometimes victims' insurance companies don't pay all the damages up front. Personal injury claims are designed to help you seek compensation for financial damages that are not covered by your insurer. With the help of a Portland injury lawyer, you can seek restitution needed for a lifetime of quality treatment.
