Spinal Injury Cases in Connecticut

Have you ever experienced back pain in your life? It can significantly stop you from moving. Getting out of bed can become a challenge. If you can imagine that difficulty and amplify it, then you get an idea of what people experience with spinal injuries.

The spine protects the nerves in the spinal cord, from the back to the neck and brain. An accident that damages the spine can lead to chronic pain, nerve damage, and potential life-altering conditions.

In other words, enough damage to the spine can leave a person paralyzed.

There is often an enormous cost associated with spinal injuries. Financially, you may face large expenses for medications, therapy, and rehabilitation. On top of that, the victim will often suffer from emotional stress.

Common Causes of Spinal Injuries

One sad aspect of common causes of spinal injuries is that they are preventable. Accidents damaging the spine usually happen because of another person’s negligence. Some scenarios include:

  • Car accidents due to distracted driving
  • Colliding with larger vehicles like trucks or buses
  • Medical malpractice
  • Slipping or falling from heights
  • Workplace and construction accidents
  • Playing sports or other recreational activities

If you suffered a spinal injury because of someone else’s negligence, The Doctor Lawyer Team is ready to assist you with your claim. We have top flight Connecticut trial lawyers and a board certified neurosurgon ready to be your teammate. Contact us today for a free consultation.

What Are the Types of Spinal Injuries?

An injury to the spine is classified depending on the exact location of the injury, the nature of the injury, and its severity. Generally, there are two main types:

  • Complete spinal cord injury
  • Incomplete spinal cord injury

A complete injury to the spine is when the communication between the brain and the affected area is lost. That can result in paralysis and loss of bodily functions.

An incomplete injury means there is still partial communication between the brain and the affected area. The victim can retain certain functions, but it is challenging to do.

The types of spinal injuries include:

  • Paraplegia
  • Triplegia
  • Herniated Discs
  • Central Cord Syndrome
  • Nerve Damages
  • Anterior Cord Syndrome

Depending on the actual type of spinal injury, it can have a wide effect on your body. Victims of spinal injury may experience a variety of symptoms, such as constant pain, paralysis, and sexual dysfunction.

How Do You Determine Liability With Spinal Injuries?

To recover damages from the at-fault party, you need to determine their liability first. That means identifying what happened and proving that the actions of another person or entity resulted in your spinal injury.

A simple example is a vehicular accident where the other driver was drunk. That person should not have been at the wheel and is held liable for the injuries you sustained in the accident.

Another example is getting assaulted in a commercial property that lacks proper security. You can have grounds to claim from the property manager or owner.

The crucial part of determining liability is finding the evidence that proves your version of the events. That means going through camera footage, interviewing witnesses, and examining items of interest.

The Doctor Lawyer Team can help you navigate the process. Contact us today to set up a consultation with an experienced Connecticut spinal injury attorney.
