Did you know that roughly half a million people suffer spinal cord injuries each year, often due to car accidents? If you have suffered a spinal cord injury due to a motor vehicle accident, you may be entitled to medical treatment and recovery through a personal injury claim.
A spinal cord injury is defined as any damage to the spinal cord or nerves located at the base of the spinal canal. Most spinal cord injuries are permanent – in fact, research suggests that less than 1% of spinal cord injury victims are able to fully recover.
Spinal cord injuries can range in severity, from disc bulges, to a disc herniation, and annular tears. It is important that your attorney fully understands the science behind your injuries and is able to direct you to receive proper medical treatment for your injuries.
