Hapeville Brain and Spinal Injury Attorney
Few injuries are as serious as brain and spinal injuries – both of which are common to traffic accidents, slip and falls, and accidents on the job, among others. If someone else’s negligence leaves you with either a brain or spinal injury – or both – it’s time to consult with a skilled brain and spinal injury lawyer in Hapeville.
Spinal Cord Injuries
Any impact – or undue twisting, flexing, or pressure – to the spine can lead to a spinal cord injury, which can occur anywhere on the spinal cord. When these injuries are serious, they can result in permanent paralysis, which leads to the cessation of movement and feeling in the affected body part(s). Spinal cord injuries are often physically debilitating and can lead to chronic pain and the ongoing need for medical care.
Brain injuries – often referred to as traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) – are typically caused by a blunt force to the head or by the severe shaking of the head. These injuries are both serious and unpredictable. When a TBI is severe, victims tend to experience permanent impairments, which can impact cognitive, physical, and behavioral functioning.
Although it’s difficult to overstate the negative consequences of a serious brain or spinal injury, it’s important to consider the basic associated damages, including:
- Immense medical expenses
- Lost wages on the job and a potentially diminished earning capacity into the future
- Pain and suffering
The physical, financial, and emotional effects of a brain and/or spinal injury should never be discounted.
