Helping People with Spinal Cord Injuries in Dallas

Survivors of spinal cord injuries might be able to file a lawsuit against the person, company, or any other party who could have prevented their accident. For example, employers who fail to prevent serious accidents should be held accountable for the suffering that they cause, as should negligent drivers for a wreck or manufacturers who made faulty machinery.

Spinal cord injuries are often caused by:

Spinal cord injuries mean a complete change in the lifestyle a person lives. They’re accompanied by expensive medical care and often mean that the injured person cannot work like they did. That’s why our Dallas spinal cord injury lawyers fight for the complete compensation a person needs for the long term, not just the settlement they’re offered. We’re never satisfied with an offer until we’re convinced that it’s enough to make sure our clients have a path forward.

Types of Spinal Cord Injury Cases

Any spinal cord injury is a serious matter, but the severity of the injury greatly affects the long-term expenses to account for in your claim.

These types of spinal cord injuries include:

  • Complete spinal cord injuries: This means damage so severe that there is no more motor abilities or sense of feeling, whether that occurs high enough to lead to paralysis or inability to control the bowels and bladder.
  • Incomplete spinal cord injuries: With these injuries, there is still some ability and sense of feeling retained, the types of injuries that rehabilitation and treatment can provide some recovery for.
  • Tetraplegia/Quadriplegia: This can refer to complete or partial loss of mobility and feeling in all four limbs as well as the torso, often due to injury to the cervical spine.
  • Paraplegia: This is paralysis of the lower torso, hips, and legs, often caused by complete or partial injury to the thoracic, lumbar, or sacral areas of the spine.

Long-Term Repercussions of a Spinal Cord Damage

On top of the immediate challenges of being severely painful and often expensive to treat, spinal cord injuries can require prolonged recovery times, and in some cases, can't be fully recovered from. Our Dallas injury law firm is well-versed in just how costly, in personal and financial terms, spinal cord damage can be.

Some of the ongoing issues that affect quality of life after a spinal cord injury include:

  • Incontinence or loss of control
  • Mobility trouble
  • Trouble breathing
  • Spasms
  • Chronic pain
  • Paralysis

Whatever the complications of a spinal cord injury, they often translate to ongoing expenses, whether it's for medication, physical therapy, long-term care, wheelchairs and other devices, and so forth. Along with these quantifiable costs, there are noneconomic damages to consider as well, such as physical impairment, loss of quality of life, emotional pain and suffering, and more.

How Much a Spinal Cord Injury Case Could Be Worth

Each claim is different, and it can often take medical and financial experts to determine what the costs of long-term care could look for someone with a spinal cord injury. For instance, depending on the severity of the injury, hospital bills, surgeries, rehabilitation, and other healthcare costs can quickly add up to six figures or even seven figures of expected future bills. That said, there are different types of damages available across many cases like these.

The compensation for spinal cord injury claims can include:

  • Medical expenses (past and future)
  • Income losses (days of missed work, diminished earning capacity)
  • Pain and suffering (physical and emotional)
  • Loss of enjoyment of life (such as inability to continue certain sports, hobbies, etc.)
  • Punitive damages (such as in cases of egregious negligence, like drunk driving)
