Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a life-changing injury. Prognosis depends on the severity and location of the injury. Immediate treatment is necessary to prevent worsening of spinal cord injury and make the best recovery possible. Slip and fall, motor vehicle accidents, and workplace accidents are just some examples of how spinal cord injuries occur. If you have suffered spinal cord injury as a result of someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, or caused by a defective product, the experienced Louisiana personal injury attorneys of  Stag Liuzza can help you and your family recover the compensation you need.

Spinal Cord Injury Outcomes

Spinal cord injury can be fatal. The spinal cord relays messages from the brain to the rest of the body. Injury to the spinal cord interferes with these messages and can cut them off completely. The effects occur below the level of injury. Higher injuries typically cause more impairment.

A spinal cord injury can be complete or incomplete, at any level. In complete SCI there is no function below the level of injury. When SCI is incomplete there is some function below the level of injury. Recovery or significant improvement is more likely in incomplete SCI than in complete SCI.

Why Spinal Cord Injury Compensation is Important

Spinal cord injury requires extensive medical treatment from the time of injury and for the rest of your life. Initial treatments are to stabilize and repair as much s possible. From there rehabilitation and therapy are necessary and if there is significant impairment, there will be an ongoing need for treatment of secondary conditions. In addition to medical care, people with SCI may require 24-hour care.

The lifetime cost of SCI is beyond what most people can imagine at the outset. And the personal costs, the inability to participate in the activities you used to enjoy, the effect that it has on your relationships and your ability to interact with your loved ones, as well as the physical pain and suffering, can be even greater than the financial costs.
