What Is a Spinal Cord Injury?

A spinal cord injury is caused when the spinal cord is damaged in some way. A complete spinal cord injury causes permanent damage to the spinal cord. Paraplegia and tetraplegia are often results of a complete spinal cord injury.

An incomplete spinal cord injury occurs when only part of the spinal cord is damaged. If this occurs, what the injury itself will amount to in the victim’s life will depend on which part of the spine is injured and how severe the injury is.

How Are Spinal Cord Injuries Caused?

Spinal cord injuries can be caused in a number of ways. For the purposes of this page, it’s crucial to note that to receive compensation, your spinal cord injury must be caused because of another person’s negligence. Examples of instances of negligence of another person that may cause you to suffer from a spinal cord injury include:

Should You Talk to the Insurance Company Alone?

A common question we are asked as the leading Mesa spinal cord injury lawyers is whether spinal cord injury victims should talk to the insurance company alone. While it would be nice to think that the insurance company will do the right thing, it’s more than likely that they’re looking for ways to reduce or even outright deny your claim. They are, after all, a for-profit corporation (even though it’s the law to have insurance on a vehicle and most employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance).

Talking with the insurance company alone puts you at risk of being tricked into signing away valuable legal rights and even getting tricked into settling for a lot less than your claim is worth. Before you talk with the insurance company, make sure that you have an experienced spinal cord injury attorney on your side to represent what’s in your best interest.
