There are many different injuries that can occur as the result of an accident. Some of the injuries are minor and temporarily disrupt the victim’s life. Others are more serious and can have a catastrophic impact. A spinal cord injury (SCI) is more likely to have a significant impact on your life. Often affecting your work, your social life, and your family, your life may never be the same. If you suffered a spinal cord injury in an accident, Joseph, Hollander & Craft’s Wichita spinal cord injury lawyers can help you recover the compensation you need to address all of these life adjustments.

Spinal Cord Injury Symptoms

Symptoms of a spinal cord injury may include:

If you experience any of these symptoms following a traumatic accident, consult a physician. Early action is important for your health and recovery as well as any potential claim you may have against the person or business responsible for your injury.

Complete and Incomplete Spinal Cord Injuries

A complete spinal cord injury occurs when the area below the location of the injury can no longer communicate with the brain. As a result, the injury victim will completely lose motor and nerve function, feeling, sensation, and movement below the level of the spine where the injury occurred. This means the victim will experience total paralysis below the injured area, which is a condition called paraplegia. Complete spinal cord injuries are considered to be catastrophic injuries.

Sometimes a trauma may result in an incomplete spinal cord injury, where the nervous system’s signals can still be sent through the spinal cord to the brain. Victims of incomplete spinal cord injuries still retain some degree of movement and sensation after a spinal cord injury. The amount of movement and sensation is completely dependent on the severity of the damage. Incomplete spinal cord injuries fall into one of five categories:

Another less severe but common type of spinal cord injury is a spinal contusion and nerve damage. This injury is usually temporary and has a quick recovery process. However, a spinal contusion can still be quite serious. It can be accompanied by swelling, bleeding, and pain and can lead to additional nerve damage and heart issues.

Common Questions About Spine Injuries

What damages can I claim in a spinal cord injury lawsuit?

JHC’s skilled personal injury lawyers can help you make a claim for damages as the result of a spinal cord injury. In personal injury cases, potential damages fall into one of two types of compensatory damages. The most straightforward have a set monetary value and are called economic damages. Economic damages can include the following:

Non-economic damages are non-financial losses that would not have occurred if the injury had not happened. Examples of non-economic losses include:

What is a catastrophic injury?

An injury is deemed catastrophic when it has a severe, long-term impact on the injured person. Catastrophic injuries are usually expensive to address, but insurance companies want to pay out as little as possible. If you have experienced a catastrophic injury, such as a spinal cord injury or brain injury, you need qualified counsel to help you recover adequate compensation. JHC’s personal injury attorneys know just how to help.
