Spinal cord injuries are devasting and catastrophic injuries that forever change the lives of those who experience them. Among all of the life-altering bodily injuries one might endure, spinal cord injuries may be the most serious. These injuries often stem from slip-and-fall accidents or motor vehicle accidents, although it is not uncommon for diving or sports accidents to leave behind harrowing spinal cord injuries. And while many other traumatic injuries heal with time and medical intervention, it is sometimes the case that a serious spinal cord injury results in permanent disability and impairment, with victims needing lifelong care and assistance with even the most basic activities of daily living.
If you or a loved one has experienced this type of injury, reach out to Russell and Hill as soon as possible following your accident. We will help you hold any accountable parties responsible and assist you in collecting the compensation that is due to you under the law.
There is perhaps nothing quite as devastating as a spinal cord injury. This type of injury changes your life as you knew it, and it happens within a blink of an eye. Not only do you have to deal with the physical repercussions of such an injury, but your medical bills can skyrocket through the roof – an added burden you don’t need when trying to recover from such a serious injury. Spinal cord injuries can range from minor to severe, and often leave the victim paralyzed and unable to work. Experiencing the loss of your income at a time when you’re being bombarded with medical bills adds stress on top of an already distressful situation, and it is easy to slip into a depression. The loss of independence brought on by a spinal cord injury is devastating and not only completely changes your life, but also changes your relationships as your spouse or romantic partner now becomes your caregiver, and you find yourself unable to engage in activities you once enjoyed due to mobility limitations.
