New York Spinal Cord Injury Information
Information provided by Our New York Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Spinal cord injury can be caused by different kinds of trauma. We all have heard of spinal cord injury as a result of diving accidents, motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries, on-the-job accidents, slips and falls, etc., but spinal cord injuries can also occur as a result of negligent medical care, such as improperly-performed surgery, failure to make a diagnosis of a tumor, or an infection that is not treated. Represented by a skilled spinal cord injury attorney you may be able to recover monetary compensation for your injury, pain and suffering, hospital costs, doctor bills, and loss of wages.
The catastrophic injuries caused by damage to a spinal cord, such as paraplegia, quadriplegia, loss of urinary and bowel function, numbness, and loss of limb awareness impact the ability to work and the quality and enjoyment of life. There are levels of spinal cord injury, some resulting in temporary and long-term paralysis. In most cases the spinal cord victim does not regain full pre-injury function. Some results of spinal cord injury are:
- Motor difficulties
- Bowel difficulties
- Sexual and reproductive difficulties
Along with the physical consequences of a spinal cord injury, the victim’s personal life may also be affected, including employment, marriage, and relationships with others.
