What Is a Spinal Cord Injury?

A spinal cord injury is one of the most severe injuries someone can experience. A spinal cord injury results from damage to any part of the spinal cord or nerves at the end of the spinal canal often causing permanent damage. When someone sustains a spinal cord injury, they can experience, full or partial paralysis, loss of movement in the limbs, altered sensation including the ability to feel heat, cold, and touch, loss of bowel or bladder control, exaggerated reflex activities or spasms, changes in sexual function, pain, and difficulty breathing. There are two different ways spinal cord injuries can present: partial paralysis and complete paralysis.

Partial paralysis, called paraplegia, refers to full paralysis of the lower half of the body. Quadriplegia involves complete paralysis of the entire body from the neck down. Whether you or your loved one is experiencing paraplegia, quadriplegia, or temporary paralysis, a spinal cord injury attorney can help you get the compensation you’re owed if the injury was caused by another’s negligence or intentional misconduct.

All of these damages can cost you greatly, and not just financially. An experienced spinal cord injury attorney will help you build a case to recover what you’ve lost as a result of this injury.

How Much Is a Spinal Cord Injury Worth?

Because spinal cord injuries can greatly vary in severity, there isn’t a standard compensation amount awarded. However, if it’s proven that your spinal cord injury was the result of another’s negligence, and causes lifelong disabilities, you could be financially compensated.

A lifetime of care, if the person is 25 years old at the time of injury, may add up to $4.7 million. A person with incomplete motor function, at any level, may face $1.1 to $1.6 million in lifetime healthcare costs and living expenses. These figures do not include additional losses, such as lost earnings, emotional trauma, and more.
