Los Angeles Spinal Cord Injury Attorney
Personal injury attorneys at the Mann & Elias Law Firm help clients deal with accident consequences that normally involve seeking compensation for many types of resultant medical problems. Bodily injuries caused by spinal cord injuries can be astronomically expensive. These injuries can occur in a tragic instant if the delicate spinal cord is pinched, twisted, cut or severed during an accident. Falls, automobile accidents, sports injuries and other accidents or violence can result in spinal cord injuries that are costly and life-changing.
What Accidents Cause Spinal Cord Injury?
Approximately 42.1% of spinal cord injuries are caused by motor vehicle accidents. When violence is a factor, gunshot wounds are most likely to cause spinal cord damage. The injured person could lose sensation or the ability to move any body parts below the point of injury, temporarily or for life. Hospital stays following spinal cord injuries last a month or longer, with long term rehabilitation and treatment necessary.
Do Spinal Cord Injuries Cause Death?
It is possible that a severe injury to the spinal cord could cause instant death. In other cases, Mann & Elias attorneys have found that the injured person may suffer death later on due to complications such as pneumonia, infections, kidney failure and pulmonary embolism. Those who survive spinal cord injuries may have a lifetime struggling with mobility problems or paralysis. They may be unable to return to work at their previous job or any job at all. The overall costs of spinal cord injuries from accidents are enormous.
How Costly are Spinal Cord Injuries?
Many insurance policies do not have coverage amounts sufficient to cover all related costs for medical care and work loss. Typical lifetime treatment costs after this type of injury can range from about $1 million to just under $3 million for medical care.
