One of the most devastating back injuries one can experience is a spinal cord injury. While the possible causes can vary considerably, a spinal cord injury can have lifelong repercussions, leaving one unable to perform or participate in many of the activities that they once enjoyed.
A spinal cord injury is defined by damage to the central nervous system in the spinal cord, which conducts signals between the brain and the body and controls the body’s sensation and movements. A spinal cord injury can result in either full or partial loss of sensation or motor control or paralysis of one or more limbs. Such injuries are usually caused by a trauma, a blow, or other heavy impact to one’s spine due to a/an:

If you or a member of your family have suffered a spinal cord injury due to another’s negligence, reach out to The Barnes Firm’s Los Angeles spinal cord injury attorneys immediately to seek justice and recompense for injuries suffered.
Given the severe repercussions of spinal cord injuries, personal injury law generally categorizes it as a catastrophic injury. When the injury is caused by another’s negligence, it can result in a personal injury lawsuit and, in the case of a surgical error, a medical malpractice claim. Spinal cord injuries can also lead to product liability lawsuits if they were caused by defective products, such as faulty car seat belts or machinery. Because of the permanent effects of this type of back injury, it is necessary that you retain the services of Los Angeles spinal cord injury attorneys with a thorough knowledge of disability and social security law.
Frequently, defendants and their law firms will attempt to deflect claims by citing contributory or comparative negligence and assumption of risk. For example, if the injured party was engaged in actions that contributed to their injury because they were drunk, or were injured during a high-risk activity although aware of the risks, the defendant’s lawyer may try to raise legal objections to their liability on such premises.
Unlike other less grave personal injury claims, damages for spinal cord injury claims can exceed the monetary recovery of medical expenses and pain and suffering. The awarded damages our Los Angeles spinal cord injury attorneys can secure for you can include compensation for the long-term effects of your injury, such as rehabilitation and aid, cost of wheelchairs and other necessary devices, and the expense of transportation and installing ramps and stair lifts into the home. Spouses of spinal cord injury victims may also sue for the loss of household services, loss of consortium, and loss of intimacy.
If you are living with a spinal cord injury, receiving compensation for your pain, suffering, and loss of income is vital to being able to cope with your loss. Whether your injury is a result of a car accident, medical malpractice, physical assault, or a defective product, you need an expert law firm to put up an informed and vigorous defense of your case.
