Types of Spinal Cord Injuries
Spine injuries occur when the spinal cord experiences a traumatic injury,
either as a bruise, tear or complete tear. A spinal cord injury is a catastrophic
event, impacting the life of the survivor, as well as his or her family.
For this reason, damages in any catastrophic injury case are extensive.
Types of spinal cord injuries include:
Paraplegia – When a person loses movement and sensation in the lower half of
Quadriplegia – When a person loses movement and sensation in all four limbs (legs and arms)
Triplegia – When a person loses movement and sensation both legs and one arm
Life-Long Cost of Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries can be extremely costly. These kinds of injuries require
continuous medical care, physical therapy, and home care. It is most likely
that the injured victim may be unable to work in the same capacity as
they once did, which can lead to financial trouble and stress.
The National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center estimates the following costs:
- $2,596,328 for a person with high tetraplegia who reaches 50 years of age
- $1,516,052 for a person with paraplegia who reaches 50 years of age
These estimates do not reflect wage loss and other factors, which could
greatly impact a person’s financial situation. The Scarlett Law
Group is ready to help you obtain the maximum compensation you are entitled
to by law so that you don’t have to worry about your financial situation.
Understanding the Impact of a Spinal Injury
Generally, spinal cord injuries require extensive medical care and rehabilitative
treatment. Lawyers representing individuals rendered quadriplegic or paraplegic
as a result of a spine injury often face a host of problems not encountered in other
personal injury actions. Perhaps the most difficult issues to address involve potentially
life-shortening medical problems, including:
- Respiratory impairments
- Physical impairments
- Pressure sores
- Bowel and bladder impairments
- Severe depression
- Psychosocial impairment
