Obtaining compensation after a life-changing spinal cord injury

Accidents occur every day in Florida. Some of these accidents are due to things out of our control like weather related accidents. However, many other accidents are caused by the negligence of another person or business. When people suffer injuries in these types of accidents it can be even more difficult to deal with, as in most cases the accident could have been avoided if the other person had been acting appropriately.

The severity of the accidents varies greatly as well, but in many cases people suffer serious injuries as a result. One of the more serious types of injuries that people can suffer are spinal cord injuries. The brain sends all the information to all the muscles and nerves through the spinal cord. So, when it is injured it can prevent the information from the brain from getting to the appropriate places.

Spinal cord injuries can cause people to lose the ability to use their arms, legs or both. These injuries can cause the loss of sensation in a person's limbs, the loss of the ability to control one's bladder or even their ability to breathe on their own and many other problems.

Another aspect of spinal cord injuries that make them very devastating is that they often cause permanent damage. This can permanently change a person's life. They may not be able to enjoy the same activities or continue to work. The loss of employment can obviously cause major financial difficulties as the person will no longer have the ability to earn an income.

However, if a spinal cord injury is caused by the negligence of another person, the victim may be entitled to compensation for their injuries and loss of income. At our firm we conduct extensive investigations of our client's cases to ensure that victims obtain the proper amount of compensation for their injuries and forced change in lifestyle.
