A spinal cord injury can leave you with permanent impairment. When someone is reckless and leaves you with such a serious injury, a Columbia attorney can help you recover compensation for your injuries.

When you’ve suffered a traumatic accident, your injuries could haunt you for a long time after the incident. In some cases, like with many spinal injuries, you might be facing a lifetime of dealing with your injuries.

Unfortunately, that makes your recovery difficult. You’re facing high medical expenses and other damages, but your accident was someone else’s fault. Instead of accepting the costs of your back injury, seek out legal help from a Columbia spine injury lawyer from HawkLaw, PA.

Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries

When you’re preparing to file your claim in Columbia, understanding who’s at fault for your accident is important. If you’re not sure where to start, make sure you know the cause of your spinal cord injury. The following are a few examples of potential causes of spine injuries:

  • Motor Vehicle Accidents – A car crash can impact your back, causing severe damage to your spinal cord. The force of the collision can even leave you paralyzed.
  • Slip-and-Fall Accidents – While a slip-and-fall may not seem so serious, it can damage your spinal cord and leave you struggling to recover. A wet floor without any warnings, then, can leave you badly injured.
  • Workplace Injuries – If your employer doesn’t take the proper precautions to protect your safety, you might suffer a back injury through a heavy machinery accident, a slip, or a fall from a height.

Your Spine Injury Compensation

When you’re hurt in an accident, you’ll need to seek out the full compensation you deserve for your injuries. Unfortunately, it can be overwhelming to keep track of all the expenses you’ve suffered because of your accident, and that doesn’t include the non-economic damages you should receive as well.

For example, your spinal injury compensation should include all the economic damages for your accident. That includes any financial losses, from the initial medical care to your long-term rehabilitation.

Make sure, however, that you also include your non-economic damages, though they may not be as simple to calculate. These damages cover your intangible losses, like the pain of your injuries or the loss of your enjoyment of life. Finding the worth of the changes in your quality of life can be tough, however, so reach out to an attorney for finding your claim’s worth.
