A spinal cord injury is a very serious trauma. As an experienced lawyer, David Cole knows just how devastating a spinal cord injury is on a person’s life and their family’s life. Oftentimes, the paralysis caused by certain types of spinal trauma are permanent. Common causes include:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Snowmobile and ATV accidents
- Construction and scaffold accidents
- Equipment injuries
Few people with a spinal cord injury make a total recovery or fully return to normal function. A complete spinal injury involves paralysis on both sides of the body from the point of the injury downward. People who have suffered complete spine injuries are unlikely to regain function or sensation below the injury. An incomplete spinal injury most often means the victim will have some function and sensation below the site of the injury. A complete injury is just about always permanent, while a person with the incomplete type may regain some function in certain areas.
Life after a spinal injury will certainly be different, but you deserve all the resources you need in order to adapt to this new life. Rehabilitation, assistive equipment, in-home modifications, and treatments can get really expensive. That is why attorney David Cole tirelessly pursues compensation on behalf of injury victims. He knows just how expensive, traumatic, and painful a spinal injury is because he has met and gotten to know so many victims of personal injury in our state. He believes you need and deserve maximum compensation if you suffered a spinal cord injury caused by someone else’s negligence.
If your spinal trauma occurred at work, in a motor vehicle accident, or because of defective equipment or dangerous premises, then you may have a claim to pursue compensation. A successful monetary award can make a big difference to your quality of life and ability to adapt to life with your injury.
